Publisher's Summary

Are you curious to learn what happened after the US Civil War? Then dive into the captivating history of the Reconstruction Era!

The US Civil War brought about a lot of change. The nation not only had to figure out how to become united once again, but it also had to figure out how to integrate the newly freed slaves into society. In addition, the country had to figure out how to recover from the war, which devastated the South and took many lives on both sides. 

In this audiobook, you will learn about the significant players and laws. You will hear about the carpetbaggers and scallywags who tried to make things better for Blacks in the South while also seeking their own fortune. And perhaps most importantly, you will discover what happened to the freed slaves and how they found themselves living in a nation that promoted “separate but equal” legislation.

from civil war to civil rights

while this book is intended to focus on the period of time, following the civil war, it was still necessary to cover preceding events leading up to that war. it was necessary to showcase all struggles n people involved, to better understand the post-war era.

they also break down the constitutional amendments passed during this time, and how they would affect others' lives in modern times

I wish I had learned this stuff in school

Reading these histories really highlights how incomplete our American history curriculums have been at both the secondary and college levels. This book has great information, told in a compelling way.

ONE STEP FORWARD, TWO STEPS BACK

The outcome of the American Civil War should have resolved the issue of slavery, economic interests, and the power struggle between the Federal government and the individual States. However, despite many federal Laws and various amendments to the Constitution over the last 150+ years, black Americans continue to seek equality.
