U.S. History

What challenges did the Radical Republicans face during the Reconstruction period?
The Radical Republicans fought for political supremacy. They had two main goals: Break the power of wealthy planters who had long ruled the South. Ensure that freedman received the right to vote. They mist disband state governments. They must write new constitutions and must ratify the 14th Amendment. Rebuild the south.
Is this what I am looking for when it comes to the challenges that the Radical Republicans had to face during the Reconstruction period?
Thanks.

  1. Since you're looking for challenges, you should also include the opposition points of view and how they influenced the Radicals' agenda.
