Lincoln was killed before this arrangement could be put into impact.

Johnson's arrangement was additionally merciful towards the southern states. He would concede exculpations to anybody taking a reliability vow to the U.S. aside from high positioning Confederate political and military pioneers, and individuals owning property worth more than $20,000. States would be readmitted to the Union once they made another state government that annulled bondage, canceled the state's statute of severance, and denied Confederate obligations.
