Which of the following pieces of evidence could be used to defend the statement, "If President Lincoln had lived, the Confederate States would have been quickly readmitted to the Union?" The Wade-Davis bill required a majority of each Confederate state's 1860 voters to pledge an oath of loyalty to the Union before the state could be readmitted. At the time of Lincoln's death, Arkansas, Louisiana and Tennessee had successfully been readmitted to the Union under the Ten Percent Plan. The Radical Republicans in the Senate opposed Lincoln's Ten Percent Plan and demanded that Confederate states be punished for their rebellion against the Union. By the end of the Civil War, almost two percent of the population was dead and the South was physically and economically destroyed.
