Best Answer

There were two presidents who served during the Reconstruction period. Abraham Lincoln, whose primary goal was putting the Union back together again after the war and his vice president, Andrew Johnson who assumed the presidency after Lincoln's death. Johnson completely dismantled all the Reconstruction programs, and abruptly stated it was over, due to his loyalty to secessionists.
