1 Additional Answer
Radical Republicans believed in the abolishment of slavery, that any freed slaves should have total equality with white citizens and that their rights should be protected. These were men with very little patience and minimal tolerance who addressed issues such as the 13th Amendment, reconstruction policies, emancipation, Confiscation Acts and enlistment of black people.
