Stressing the shortcomings of presidential Reconstruction, it deals with congressional plans to overcome Andrew Johnson�s resistance to the thorough integration of the freedmen into society, the period of congressional Reconstruction, the impeachment of the president, and the restoration of conservative rule. Four additional documents have been included to complement the text.
