FC: Proposal for Luffastinian | Cabrene Luff Dwayne Grey
1: This proposal is to help you, the country of Luffastinian, return to the lovely peaceful country that you once was. Your situation was just like the situation in America when we had our own Civil War. Some of their decisions were smart decisions, and some weren't. Thats why we are here to make sure that you stick to the good decisions and not the bad.
2: Proposal #1- The Plans | The best plan to follow from America is the 10% plan. The 10% plan states that a Southern state could be readmitted into the Union if 10% of their voters swore an oath of alliance to the Union. After the state swore themselves to the Union, They were guaranteed protection over land from the president at this time, President Lincoln. The only exception was that Lincoln would not protect the southerner's slaves. This would be a good plan to follow because the nation would reunite sooner than it would if you would follow the Radical Plan or the Presidential Plan.The Radical Plan was based off of revenge and will absolutely get you no where in your Reconstruction process.The Presidential Plan sort of resembles the 10% plan so the best plan to follow is the 10% plan.
3: Proposal #2-The Amendments | The 13,14, and 15th amendments are positive feedback decisions as well. The 13th amendment banned slavery in the United States. The 14th amendment gave citizenship to anyone who was born the United States and declared that no state could deprive any person's life, liberty or property without the process of law, and declared that no state could deny any person equal legal protection. The 15th amendment prohibited each government in the United States the right to deny a citizen the right to vote based on their "race", color, or any other previous conditions. All of these amendments impacted the United states in a big way. Slavery was over and citizens were given the right to vote as well as be a citizen. If you create your own amendments using these as guidelines, you will be a step closer to reuniting your country.
4: Proposal #3- Freedmen's Bureau | This was a U.S. federal government agency that aided freed slaves, freedmen, from 1865-1869. The Freedmen's Bureau Bill was initiated by President Lincoln and had the intention for lasting for 1 year after the Civil War. It was passed on March 3,1865 by the Congress. It helped feed, cloth, house, educate, and provide jobs and health care for all freed slaves. This agency was apart of the states Department off War during Reconstruction, and was disbanded under President Ulysses S. Grant. This is something that you should definitely follow. This helped any free slaves and that is what your country needs at the moment. A place for freed slaves to go since most of them aren't from America.
5: Proposal #4-Military Reconstruction Act | This act sought to rebuild the governments of the southern states using the governments of the northern states as guides. This reconstruction act divided the South into 5 military districts. Virginia was the first, North and South Carolina was the second, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida was the third, Mississippi and Arkansas was the fourth, and Louisiana and Texas was the final one. Luffastinian should follow this plan because even though there are multiple districts it might be easier to just have different districts to keep up with and have their own government as well.
6: Proposal #5-Ku Klux Klan | An association commonly known as the KKK, was an anti-immigration program which is historically expressed through terrorism. The KKK has also been anti-communist. This group in the simplest way way a hate group. At all cost, you should avoid this type of group at all times. This is a group that you can't and shouldn't associate with. Luffastinian just got over a civil war because of slavery, the last thing you need is to have a hate group walking around.
7: Proposal #6- Sherman's Special Field Orders | These were military orders that were issued during the Civil War on January 16,1865. The provided as much as 400,00 acres of land along the Atlantic coast of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida and the land was divided evenly between approximately 18,000 freed slave families and other blacks living in the area. These orders began to make peace there for is a good guideline to peace in your country.
8: Proposal #7- Impeachment of Andrew Johnson | This event had to have been one of the most dramatic events in the political life of the U.S. during Reconstruction. JOhnson was impeached February 24, 1868. His crime was removing Edwin M. Stanton, the secretary of war, from office and replaced him with Ulysses S. Grant. The House of Representatives' primary charge against Johnson was with the violation of the Tenure of Office Act, which was passed by Congress that previous year.
9: Proposal #8- Share Cropping v Tenant Farming | A tenant farmer is one who owned land that they got from a landlord. Tenant farming is an agricultural production system in which landowners contribute their land and often a measure of operating capital and management. Tenant farmers would contribute their long hours of labor for varying amounts of capital and management. Sharecropping is a system of agricultural in which a landowner allows a tenant to use the land in return for a share of the crop produced on the land, specifically 50% of the crop. Luffastinian should do share cropping. You can get money alot faster than tenant farming. You just have to do it without slaves which would be easy to do since you can just get workers.
10: This program begun during the American Civil War which allowed slaves to work on land that was abandoned y plantation owners. In 1861, the Union liberated the coast of South Carolina and their main harbor, Port Royal. The white residents fled leaving 10,000 slaves behind. Several Private Northern organizations helped the former slaves become self-sufficient. This was a model of what reconstruction could have been for America. I suggest you go with this plan that because the slaves in America was able to demonstrate their ability to live independently, and that was how there Reconstruction could have been . | Propsoal # 9 The Port Royal Experiment
11: Luffastinian's slaves could demonstrate their ability as well as America's slaves. It's a nice peaceful way to settle things between the two races.
12: Proposal #10- Panic of 1873 | This panic caused multiple banks to close and the stock market to plummet. Thousands of businesses were shut down, and over thousands of Americans became unemployed. This literally was a financial issue. This hurt the Republicans politically causing the Democrats to win control over the House of Representatives and made gains with the Senate. With the Democrats in office, launched investigations into the scandals which further embarrassed Grant and the Republicans. Our advice is to not follow in the Republicans footsteps. Make sure you have your house of Representatives on your side as well as the Senate because without them you have no control over the country.
13: Proposal #11- Compromise of 1877 | This compromise was the final act of Reconstruction. Grant was not put into office due to the scandals that happened during the panic of 1873. The Democrats won over the South. The Democrats then made up members of the House, Senate, and the Supreme Court each having a total of 15 people within each group. To be fair to the Republicans, the commission had 8 Republicans, 8 Democrats and voted along party lines. 8 to 7 electoral votes went to a man named Rutherford B. Hayes, a former governor of Ohio. Hayes won the election which became known as the Compromise of 1877. This compromise included a promise by the Republicans to pull federal troops out of the South, if Hayes was elected.Without support from any Republicans, the two republican governments in South Carolina and Louisiana quickly collapsed. America's Reconstruction era had a lot of ups and downs, but if you follow the positive proposals that we have given you, Luffastinian should be back at peace in no time.
