Lincolns original plan for reconstruction was that in all states if 10% of the voters in that state swore a oath of allegiance to the union they could be re-admitted into the union. Since Lincoln has been tragically murdered after he defeated the south. Johnson has been elected to be the new union president he has created a new plan. He wants to pardon people who take a oath, but there will not be pardons to confederate officials, slavery needs to be completely abolished from the state, and the state also has to repeal its secession ordinance. These are now the new rules for Souths reconstruction.
