Lincoln also proposed military action on slavery by passing the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863 that made not one slave free from the South. Also the election of 1864 would of gone in the hands of the other candidate if Lincoln didn’t win the Civil War by the end of the year. All of these events lead to the assassination
Two of his best used examples were the the popular propaganda speeches made by slave owners in attempt to gain allegiance against the North and the South’s almost hatred of the Republican Party as a whole. One key example that Dew provided was the use of scare tactics by the pro-slave Southerners. In an effort to build an alliance through the South, Southern leaders would use emotion to gain support of the common people. They would give examples of what would happen to them and their families if blacks would be free. These examples would explain how the lives of Southerners would be ruined and that the country would come to an end if slaves were freed.
One of the major turning points in America’s history after the civil war was the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. The president’s death changed the course of a country that was trying to rebuild itself after the war. During the Reconstruction in Lincoln’s time he ordered amnesty and that the south should be rebuilt, he also planned to end the hatred of the many black people that were now free. Lincoln planned to pardon any southerner who would swear allegiance to the Union and the United States Constitution. Within this plan he wanted to let the Confederate states back into the Legislature.
They portrayed Brown as a man who died fighting against the injustice of slavery. True or not, the martyr image gave strength to the moral cause of abolition. The Disruption of the Democrats In the 1860 election, Democrats tried, and failed, to nominate a candidate at their convention in Charleston, SC. The party was squarely split over the slavery issue. Northern Democrats had a convention in Baltimore and nominated Stephen Douglas with a popular sovereignty position.
THE FAILURE OF THE CONGRESSIONAL RECONSTRUCTION PLAN The Reconstruction was the time following the Civil War during the years of 1865-1877 in which the previously seceded southern states were readmitted back into the Union. This was done gradually through plans drawn by both the executive and legislative branches of the federal government. The death of ‘Honest Abe’ Lincoln and his Ten-Percent Plan was a catalyst for the events of the post-Civil War with millions of freedmen and poor farmers that were suffering under the wrath of the economic struggles for survival. The Presidential Reconstruction Plan was headed first by Abraham Lincoln with his successor, Andrew Johnson taking control of the stand later on with a weak front towards southern punishment. After that, Congress held the power to influence the American macrocosm of its society but internal shifting of power created made Congress into a veritable seesaw.
Racheli Pollack APUSH Dr. Leach March 2, 2015 Reconstruction: An Ultra- Conservative Reaction Eric Mckitrick contends that Radical Reconstruction, which was designed to bring about a social revolution in race relations, failed to help the America Negro find his proper place in American life. He cites three reasons for the failure of Reconstruction: opposition from Southern whites, confused priorities, and the federal government’s unwillingness to maintain the long-term pressure necessary to accomplish Radical Republican goals. The Radical Republicans believed blacks were entitled to the same political rights and opportunities as whites. They additionally believed that the Confederate leaders should be punished for their roles in the Civil War. Three goals of radical republicans were they wanted to prevent the leaders of the confederacy from returning to power after the war, they wanted the republican party to become a formidable institution in the south, and they wanted the federal government to help African Americans achieve political equality by guaranteeing their rights to vote in the south.

The Gulf Tolkin resolution began with the U.S. making false claims of the Vietnamese going up U.S. war ship. This passed the policy which allowed the US to withdraw from the war which eventually leads to vietnamization. As soon as President Richard Nixon became president he introduced his policy of "vietnamization". The plan was to encourage the South Vietnamese to take more responsibility for fighting the war. It was hoped that this policy would eventually enable the United States to withdraw gradually all their soldiers from
On the day of April 12, 1861 the American Civil War started between Americans of the north and south for the issue about slavery. The north won on April 9, 1865 allowing African-Americans to vote and was a huge advantage for the radical republicans. Republican’s plan was to destroy white power and replace it with an equal power for African-American and whites. Congress made the Freedmen's Bureau on March 3, 1865 which protected the interests of former slaves. This roused a major issue, mostly from the white southerners who supported slavery, causing to creation of a group called the Knights of Ku Klux Klan (KKKK), or the "Invisible Empire of the South" in 1867, who strongly supported the Democrats and threaten African- Americans of their rights making a “cultural civil war” around the 1920s.
Period 2 During Abraham Lincoln's presidency he had to work to bind a divided nation into one. Lincoln's second inaugural address was set out for the north and the south to push them towards one and to forget, or rather get over, the cultural differences between the north and south to end the civil war and once again unify the nation as one. Lincoln's use of diction, structure, and tone help to give his speech great power and help him to get his point across of the people to the united states. President Lincoln begins his speech with a long lengthy sentence structure all separated by commas. Lincoln sets up the beginning of his speech this way to refer to the war and how long and brutal it has been.
