The Civil War ends on Sunday, April 9 1865. Abraham Lincoln is killed Friday April 14, just five days later.

Lincoln is replaced by Andrew Johnson who more or less restores the Pre-Civil War Power Structure.

Who writes this stuff?

Crazy.
By the summer of 1865 most of the wealthy Confederate families are issued pardons, by personally visiting Andrew Johnson at the White House.

Anyone owning more than $20K worth of property was required to visit AJ in person in order to receive one.
I tell you what really makes you sad are the advertisements in papers following the end of the Civil where black families were trying to locate lost relatives.
