Can someone please help me with this?
I need to write a paper as if I was a Radical Republican Senator and representing the Radical Republicans.
In this paper I need to talk about the challenges of Reconstruction.
I also need to talk about the failure of Reconstruction.
Here is some challenges that I found or I think that they are challenges:
1. They wanted to punish the South. 2. They wanted to destroy the power of slaveowning with the Southern Democrats. 3. Make black citizens with all civil rights. 4. They wanted to control the Reconstruction. 5. They disagreed with Lincoln and thought that his plan was not harsh enough.
Are these challenges ?
What caused the failure is: sharecropping, segragation, the fate of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Is this right?

So is my answers correct? I am totally confused by this assignment.
