The Republicans attempted to gain control of Raleigh's and Washington, D.C.'s political affairs after the first year of Congressional Reconstruction in February 1868. The constitutional convention which was dominated by Republicans established the foundation for biracial democracy while President Andrew Johnson was voted by the U.S. House of Representatives to undergo impeachment since Congressional Republicans believed that Johnson would obstruct the Reconstruction policy. Various southern states including North Carolina were able to ratify new constitutions and bring new Republican governments into office. This chapter demonstrates how North Carolina was able to rejoin the Union after Military Reconstruction.
