Wartime Reconstruction

Lecture no. 29 from the course: The American Civil War

Wartime Reconstruction

Taught by Professor Gary W. Gallagher | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Even as war raged, Lincoln and Congress debated what would happen after it was won. In December 1863, Lincoln offered a simple, lenient reconstruction plan. Radical Republicans in Congress objected and offered their own blueprint. The debate was continuing even as an assassin cut short Lincoln's part in it.
