Why ought to the south be punished so harshly for carrying out what they felt was correct and needed? I, Senate of Pennsylvania, believe the Confederacy must not be punished for seceding. Granted, there have been those who encouraged the rebellion against the nation, that must be punished far more. Even so, there are the innocent by-standers, who have been residents of the South, who had been not necessarily in favor of many principles of the Confederacy. So, in order to establish a much more unified country, I propose the following satisfy all parties.
The key situation here is how to bring the seceded states back into the Union. Several think that the states really should be swiftly forgiven and permitted back into the Union straight away. The issue with this is that if the states that do not want to be element of the Union once more have a higher likelihood of uprising and of causing war once again. I do agree that this matter requires to be resolved promptly, but that the troubles at hand cannot be taken lightly. On the other hand, numerous think that the states should be punished strictly. The trouble with this resolution is once again, that there is a further cause for retaliation. So in order to assure a great union there is going to have to be a middle ground.
So I think that in order to live in peace some factors must be performed prior to something happens. It is vital that all leaders of the Confederacy are turned in, leaving a generally un-biased generation. From there, it would be needed for at least 75% of a state to be agreed to re-joining the Union. They would then be admitted and elect all officials. The Confederate leaders even so, would be produced to take an oath. In which they would swear to uphold the constitution. I believe that as soon as almost everything is carried out, the Civil War will be one thing of the past. And there will as soon as again be a united nation.
