For your follow-up, I am hoping you can flash-forward  to 1860-1861, and tell us about the secession of the Southern states. Which state was the first to leave? Why did it finally secede? What prompted this? Do a quick internet search for the state’s Declaration or Ordinance of Secession and tell us what they said was the reason why they seceded. Finally, what was the Crittenden Compromise and why did it fail?
This is a rather complex follow-up, but an important one. Essentially, I am hoping you can tell us the reasons why the South finally seceded from the Union.

1. To what extent was President Johnson responsible for the radicalization of the Republican Party in 1866?


2. What changes in the North explain why the Republicans abandoned the battle for Reconstruction?


3. Do you believe that the failure of Reconstruction was primarily a failure of leadership? Or, to put it more concretely, that the outcome might have been different had Lincoln lived? Or had chosen a different vice president? Or had Andrew Johnson not been followed by Ulysses S. Grant?
