********Compare and contrast Lincoln's, Johnson's, and Congress's plans.***********
Lincoln-10% Plan which was lenient and said that all voters in seceding states (Election of 1860) would sign loyalty oath; it did not include black suffrage, although probably would have adopted limited suffrage; and would have supported Freedman's Bureau on some level. Had to ratify 13th AmendmentJohnson-Like Lincoln, favored lenient 10% plan, ratify 13th Amendment, BUT he did not support the federal funding for Freedman's Bureau, nor did he support black suffrage or federal protection of black rights, and pardoned several ex-Confederate leaders. Congress-Led by Radical Republicans in Congress, the plan called for a ratification of the 14th Amendment and federal protection of black rights, eventually this became militarized w/ extended military occupation of the South, and also under Grant's administration, the 15th Amendment, also had loyalty oath, and each govt. had to have Republicans in office.
