April 4

Today in class we talked about what life was like after Lincoln was assassinated. It wasn't to great, the government was kind of in a state of confusion due to the fact that a Southener became the president. Because of this nothing got done, and it seems as if the US was worse off  now that Lincoln was gone, even if the Southeners didn't think so. If they had really stepped to look back at the situation and how Lincoln wasn't totally against them, and had actually wanted to fix the issues the war had caused maybe things would've been different. Instead the Radical Republicans didn't get anything done with Andrew Johnson as president and impeached him.
