Ulysses S. Grant and Reconstruction

Here’s Joan Waugh, Professor of History at UCLA, speaking on Ulysses S. Grant in Reconstruction.  Reconstruction is a topic we all need to learn more about, especially since its historiography was polluted in the early 20th Century by the Dunning School.  This is a really good lecture and discussion at the end.
