    In late 1863, Lincoln announced a formal plan for reconstruction:

    1. A general amnesty would be granted to all who would take an oath of loyalty to the United States and pledge to obey all federal laws pertaining to slavery

    2. High Confederate officials and military leaders were to be temporarily excluded from the process

    3. When one-tenth of the number of voters who had participated in the 1860 election

    had taken the oath within a particular state, then that state could launch a new government and elect representatives to Congress.
