Warp 10,

It does seem that Abe had a vision for the South after the war but he did not live to complete it. I figure his vision would be frond upon by today's values.

Johnson had a vision as well about a yeomen south but failed bring it forth. He was not up to the job but if he had work with congress maybe he would have achieved something..

This idea the radicals brought racial strife to the south is plain bogus. Every action by the white southern leadership that arose after the war was about puting Freedmen into caste like system with few if any rights. If allowing the white southern leadership to cow the Freedmen back into servitude is racial harmony then let there be strife...

The radicals, who had a vision of racial equality in the south...
