This Week in Reconstruction, March 28-April 3, 1869

Description

General Stoneman has removed Governor Wells! Special Order No. 62 states that he will be removed and that all responsibilities will be redirected to General Stoneman in the meantime. Universally, it is known that, "never did a man who possessed such a fine opportunity to win the esteem of an intelligent and just community so grossly abuse his advantages. His removal goes far to compensate for the long suffering under his rule." This is a huge victory for the state.
