The South was not sufficiently punished after the war [View all]

We lost the political will to finish Reconstruction the way it should have been done.

All pro-Confederate plantation owners should have had their land seized and redistributed to former slaves (I would say that plantation owners who were loyal to the union should get to keep a share).

There should have been lifetime voter disenfranchisement of all Confederate soldiers, politicians, Confederate government officials and sympathyzers.

Military occupation of the old Confederacy for the next 30 years.

The civil rights act of 1875 should have been enforced.

Jefferson Davis should have been charged and tried for treason and hung from a sour apple tree upon his conviction.

The Freedmen's Bureau should have been funded, and used to educate former slaves.
