Just exactly which radical Republicans are you referring to? Please name them and describe their "vision"

Exactly what did you want Johnston to do?... surrender the presidency to his cabinet and the congress..nothing short of that would have been satisfactory to them...

I have not forgotten you Bama but Thaddus Stevens was one for integration of the races in the south following the war....Senator Sunmer was one for integration too..I want to throw Rep. George Julian into the mix....They did not want to ship the Freedmen off somewhere but integrated them with the white south. They wanted citizenship and suffrage for the Freedmen
