Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
Reprint. Originally published in 1938 by the Bobbs-Merrill Company.
The Reconstruction is one of the most complex and fascinating chapters in American history. Initially driven by a just repugnance to the institution of slavery, it promised a new era of human rights and a new dispensation for the dispossessed. But it soon became tainted by corruption, vindictiveness and greed, and ultimately failed in its nobler aims. The author undertakes to put together in one continuous thread of story, the key events of the period in each of the southern states.
