Among the many books on the Civil War and Reconstruction, this is the first comprehensive study written from the point of view of the restoration of civil and political rights to the Confederates. From the time of Lincoln's first proclamation of amnesty in December, 1863, the pardoning program was closely linked to plans for restoring the seceded states. Lincoln's liberal attitude toward the South is well known, and it was his desire that even the leaders of the Confederacy should be treated with clemency. "No one need expect that he would take any part in hanging or killing these men, even the worst of them," Gideon Welles wrote. "'Frighten them out of the country, open the gates, let down the bars, scare them off,' said he, throwing up his hands as if scaring sheep. 'Enough lives have been sacrificed; we must extinguish our resentments if we expect harmony and Union.' " After Lincoln's assassination many were pleased to think that the new President would be an "avenger" who would "make treason odious." But although Johnson's first amnesty proclamation, promulgated in May, 1865, was more severe than Lincoln's had been, Lincoln's "door to mercy" was left open for those excepted from pardon to make individual application for presidential clemency. Political complications multiplied as Reconstruction progressed, and many vexing questions arose: of who should be allowed to vote and hold office; of the conflicting claims of pardoned Confederates and freedmen; of the restoration of confiscated property. The activities of some notorious pardon "brokers" and "brokeresses" led to scandals in Washington. Meanwhile, Johnson's growing leniency brought him into ever increasing conflict with the Radical Congress which, after trying to impeach him, took the administration of pardon and amnesty more and more into its own hands, along with the rest of the program of Reconstruction. Most of these problems grew out of basic questions implicit in the nature of the Civil War ~ questions of definition of war and rebellion, treason, and what constitutes a legally established government. This book, using for the first time the important material contained in the Amnesty Papers now in the National Archives, presents the first complete account of how Americans treated the difficult relations between victor and vanquished in this period of their history.
