    good luck to you that must sure keep you busy. It may be lost time to you but to the people in the forum it's a great opportunity to understand some pivotal points in our Constitution . Which most people like me don't have an opportunity to open our horizons to new ideas..

    President Johnston issues his opinion on reconstruction. However simple this is, there are consequence and Congress wants time to think it over.

    Take a moment to summarize.
    There was a political crisis of secession, then war which was resolved by Union Victory.
    Now there is a political crisis of peace.
    Conflicts between those who want to leave the system as it was and those with various motives to change the system.

    Congress and President Johnson have differences on how to proceed with the seceded States to return them to the family of States in the United States. Johnson want things much as they were before secession.

    Congress wants to think about it.

    A number of Southern actions provoked the Congress
