*NOTE* Don't copy word for word...unless you want to die a PAINFUL AGONIZING DEATH!! : )

Sam's Section
(1-12) sorry these are so long!! i forgot about the whole short-hand thing!! but you can some up these sentences!! next time i promise to make it easier and shorter!!

1. Some people in the South were still angry with the Union and refused to admit that they were wrong in seceding. Also, the Radical Republicans wanted the Southern states to go through harsher treatment in their attempt to join the Union. This idea clashed with the Presidents’ who wanted re-entry simple and quick.

2. The South was destroyed from the fighting in the Civil War. The whole southern era and age were gone and a way of life had to be created. The towns were rubble and all the fields were gone. Businesses were on lockdown because of inflation and transportation was gone. Weeds replaced cotton and there was no more slave labor. White planters were angered at the Union and didn’t know how to survive because they were so dependent on slaves.

3. Emancipation came at different times in the south so not all blacks were free at one time. Slaves were sometimes free, then put back into slavery. However, all masters eventually had to recognize their freedom. Many also did not know how to survive on their own since they never had to.

4. Most blacks believed freedom was the ultimate goal. Once freed, many requested new names and marriage formalization. Freedom also meant the right to create their own religion, churches, and schools for an education.

5. They wanted to be able to create churches, home, and schools so they could begin living as others do. They wanted a life of a normal working person, not a slave. Others want legal equality because many people refused to treat them equally. Just because they were free, didn’t mean they could live equally. If they were given this legally, people would have no choice but to treat them equally.

6. White southerners just saw this freedom as a loss if slavery. However, they eventually found ways to get their slaves back. They didn’t believe slaves were equal to themselves whatsoever. Southerners knew blacks would have difficulty finding work so they would hire them cheap and if they broke contracts, then they weren’t paid. This system was pretty much slavery all over, not freedom.

7. Many southerners wouldn’t follow the new Amendments or Emancipation. The soldiers forced southerners to release their slaves and kept them from uniting into any rebellions.

8. The bureau gave former slaves food, clothing, medical care, and schooling. This helped the newly freed slaves to get a start in life. However, the association didn’t provide land or shelter really. This became a problem because slaves needed a place to live and make a living.

9. Lincoln wanted the seceded states to re-enter quickly and easily. His 10% plan only required 10% of voters to pledge allegiance to the Union and to abide by emancipation. On the other hand, congress and republicans highly disagreed stating that the states should only enter if 50% pledged and they wanted safeguards.

10. Conservative Republicans believed the south should be let back in quickly and easily, like Lincoln. They felt the war was over and reconstruction should begin as soon as possible and it should be an easy process. To survive, the Union needed to move towards reconstruction.

11. Radicals wanted the south to go through more since they seceded the Union. They wanted the south to be reformed economically and socially like the North. They also wanted planters to be punished and blacks to be federally protected.

12. Lincoln felt that the states never really seceded because it wasn't possible.(legally) After the war, he believed the u.s. would continue more smoothly if the south wasn't punished too severely and the country once again became one union.
