From the Paper:

"Although the American Civil War effectively ended in April, 1865 with the surrenders of Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Albert S. Johnston surrendered in Virginia and North Carolina, respectively, the fight for the peace, that is, reconstruction, had merely begun. Reconstruction involved federal control of Southern state governments and the South's reincorporation into the union, its political reconstruction. Reconstruction began at the end of the Civil War, under the presidency of Andrew Johnson. Eric McKitrick asserts that the intense disagreement between Johnson and Congress regarding the postwar social and political structure of the South resulted in Johnson's political destruction. Andrew failed to satisfy Northern interests in Reconstruction, was enfeebled as a President and politician, and lost the Reconstruction battle to Congress."
