What caused the confrontation between President Johnson and Congress over Reconstruction policies? Why should we care, and how does it connect to today?
The confrontation between President Johnson and Congress over Reconstruction policies came about because Johnson was too lenient on the southern states, which continued to oppress African Americans, and because Johnson opposed laws that Congress attempted to pass that would give former slaves equality and citizenship. This connects to us today and we should be concerned about it because African Americans are still struggling for the equal rights that they deserve.
