Reconstruction

A Primary Source History of the Struggle to Unite the North and South After the Civil War

Primary Sources in American History

The Civil War, and the Reconstruction following it, was one of the most significant periods in U.S. history. Here, the author explains President Lincoln's dilemma in keeping the country from engaging in a civil war and the subsequent struggles to unite the North and South after the war ended. Primary source documents offer information on the Radical Republicans and their desire to give equal rights to freed blacks, and on the conditions that would not improve for years as the country was forced to contend with riots, lack of rights for freed slaves, lynchings, and tampered elections.
