Yeah, there's a number of things through out history that while they may have actually happened (as in the case of the 40 acres and a mule), they didn't always happen in the manner people think; or weren't said by the person that they expect.

It's somewhat ironic that many groups who DO tell the truth of the myth that the US Government promised the above reparations to the freed slaves, will in the same breath note that Andrew Johnson was "easy" on the south and sympathetic to their "plight."

What makes it ironic, is Johnson didn't want "reconstruction" of the south. By all accounts, he would have been perfectly happy to leave it the burned and destroyed mess it was after the war.
