Reconstruction Without Lincoln
What happened after Lincoln was killed.
Overview of Johnson's Plan
Civil Rights Act of 1866
1) Blacks could only go to court against other blacks and if it was a crime against a white person, the crime was much more severe and in most cases was the death penalty
2) The code allowed for whites to take black orphans, even if it was against their will and we're allowed to inflict "moderate punishment" to the kids.
3) Black "servants" were to work for white "masters" and they could not leave their place of work, worked from sun up to sun down, and could not receive any visitors during their time of work.
