What was Johnson's reconstruction plan?

Johnson, after Abraham Lincoln was assassinated, proposed to carry out Lincoln's ideas for Reconstruction. Congress proposed the 13th Amendment which called for the abolition of slavery in all parts of the country. Later, Congress organized the Freedmen's Bureau which helped Blacks find jobs, protected their rights, and established hospitals and schools for them throughout the South. Due to the formation of the Black Codes and the Ku Klux Klan, Congress was convinced that Johnson's plan for Reconstruction had failed and Congress took control. President Johnson opposed Congressional Reconstruction saying it was unfair to the South. Congress responded by passing the Reconstruction Acts, which listed requirements for a state's readmission into the Union. After Johnson vetoed the Reconstruction Acts, Congress repassed them when 2/3 of the Senate and 2/3 of the House approved the acts.
