During this time, the major problems of the United States centered around the status of the former Confederate States, individual secessionists, and the newly freed slaves. Among the seventeen papers of the era presented here are the Proclamations of Lincoln and Johnson, the Report of the Joint Committee on Reconstruction, the Civil Rights Act and Fourteenth Amendment, "The Mississippi Plan," and Frederick Douglass' "No Chinese Wall Can Now Be Tolerated."
