    The 10% Plan.

    For a Confederate state to be readmitted to the Union,10% of the electorate had to take an oath of allegiance to the Union,the state had to emancipate all slaves,and abolish slavery forever.

    Lincoln wanted a mild peace settlement so as to quickly reintegrate ex Confederate states back into the Union and move the country forward as a united population.He believed that this way,the scars caused by the Civil War would be healed and forgotten much sooner.
