What was the main issue relating to Reconstruction that divided Republicans at the end of the Civil War? If you had been a member of Congress at the time, what type of plan for Reconstruction would you have supported and why? ok lets see
And the graph..
ok what do you think
Graph lol.. I mean't chart.
If I remember correctly, before Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, he had a plan for reconciliation with the south, I believe that he wanted the south to rejoin the union as swiftly as possible. (This is largely up for opinion) but Lincoln's idea had a lot of credence and merit to it and here's why. The southern economy was less industrialized than the north, though they had factories, they didn't have the industrial capacity as the north, so you can imagine that after the civil war the southern economy suffered greatly. They relied on cash crops to fuel their economy, and if I remember correctly rich patrons within the south who helped finance the war. The biggest problem for the north would have been addressing the issue of the southern economy, once they reunified. Remember, on those plantations a lot of slaves worked on them, so once the slaves were free you could imagine that the south had to address that as well and now treat former slaves as paid workers not property. I think that Lincoln's idea was the better option because, the north wanted to reintegrate the south into the union, after a devastating war, quickly as a means of trying to erase any pre war tensions. Like let's say if the North wanted reparations? the South would have been in no means able to pay those reparations for the reasons I explained. if you want to reintegrate the south you had better do it in a timely fashion, but when you do, the issue of the economy becomes the most relevant. So in essence you want a timely reintegration followed by a plan that would help to (jumpstart the southern economy). To me this makes sense because once you reintegrated the south it's now part of the union and the issues of economy have to be addressed.
