The different approaches to the reconstruction were number one,the executive or presidential approach. The second was the legislative or congressional approach. The last was the judicial approach. The purpose of the executive or presidential approach was mainly to change charity for southern whites and to get a whole new government. Basically they wanted to be done with the old an in with the new. The legislative or congressional approach set a republican goal to maintain their power and they saw a purpose in the using of the Southern Black vote. They wanted to continue to run things the way they had been doing so and figured if they get the Blacks on their side their vote would help them in this goal. The last the Judicial approach showed the continued struggle between federal and states rights advocates over who should have more power and control.
