Ryan Brown US History II 2/16/12 Reconstruction The plans for reconstruction were not started until 1863 and they later ended in 1865. In 1865 the reconstruction period also began starting to put the plan into action. The reconstruction did not wait for the war to end. President Lincoln was in full belief that reconstruction was a matter of executive responsibility. Congress disagreed because they were afraid that Lincoln’s primary goal of national unity was set up as to fast of a program and this meant that congressed believed that Lincoln would return to the old southern ruling class to power.
Lincoln would not have only replaced the relations that went on with all the government and federal states properly, but also would have made a huge effect on all the American families and have made a very depressed reconciliation. The thoughts was just wishful thinking that made people come to realization that “pragmatic “had a huge effect, which made them have “hatepyschosis” that stood the powers of many leaders in one spot. Many had faith that the Reconstruction would have most definitely been different if Lincoln had of been present, and that the reconciliation might have been around faster and been completed. They people had reconstructed the plan just a couple hours after the murder of President Lincoln.

Such a simple view did not totally explain the Klan's sway over the South, but there is little doubt that many Confederate veterans exchanged their rebel gray for the hoods and sheets of the invisible empire. The conditions in the South, immediately after the war, added to Southerners' fears and frustrations.
