    Was it racism or states' rights? What do you think?

    States rights. Mr. Johnson kinda appears to me as an odd person. His policies are, in general, more harsh than Lincoln's, but he wanted the Reconstruction to end as quickly and painlessly as possible. It was almost contradictory. He was more on the predjudiced side, but he was in a hurry to get Reconstruction out of the way... All his vetos point to a predjudice perspective as well...

    Definitely States rights. He argued effectively, and the 14th amendment was passed to counter his arguments.
