Define wade- Davis manifesto?

On 5 August 1864, Horace Greeley's New York Tribune printed a denunciation of Abraham Lincoln for having vetoed the Wade -Davis B ill. The manifesto condemned the president for usurping Congress's legislative powers by attempting to reconstruct the South by executive orders.

The manifesto's strident language offended most moderate Republicans and produced a backlash that enhanced Lincoln's image while discrediting Radical Republican leaders.

What president vetoed the Reconstruction acts on the 14th amendment?

Andrew Johnson vetoed some of the reconstruction acts. He did not veto the 14th Amendment since the president has no part in the process. Amendments are proposed and passed in the Legislature and then sent directly to the states for ratification (or the states can call a constitutional convention). Johnson DID veto the Civil Rights Act of 1866 which was mostly the same as the 14th Amendment. He objected to the measure because it conferred citizenship on the freedmen at a time when 11 out of 36 states were unrepresented in the Congress, and because it discriminated in favor of African-Americans and against whites.
