The term reconstruction is used because this was the period when the federal government restored seceded states to the Union. This quickly proved to be a difficult and strenuous process as the government had to figure out three major issues: one, how to deal with the southern states as they rejoined the union; two, how the southern whites should be treated; and three, how to deal with the freed slaves. Abraham Lincoln came up with a plan that was strongly opposed by Congress. It basically stated that if Southern states were willing to take an oath of allegiance to the United States, then they shouldn’t be punished. After Lincoln’s assassination, President Andrew Johnson decided to adopt Lincoln’s plan of reconstruction.
