Johnson, Grant and Hayes were not the moral nor mental equivalent of Truman, Marshall and MacArthur.

ACW Post-War Reconstruction policy was an absolute disaster that filled the pockets of the greedy and emptied those of the needy. O. O. Howard and his crew were in way over their righteous hairy heads.

Hancock and Longstreet were the only ones who had the guts to tell it like it was. And therein lies the trap. During the Reconstruction era it was less like "put up or shut up" and more like "show me the money".

Everybody got screwed except for those that rigged the game.
