The Wars of Reconstruction Presentation

This is Douglas Egerton speaking about his book, The Wars of Reconstruction.  This is a good presentation.  The description of the video says, “Professor Douglas Egerton talked about his book The Wars of Reconstruction: The Brief, Violent History of America’s Most Progressive Era, in which he looks at politics in both northern and southern states following the Civil War, and argues that the early post-Civil War years saw major progressive reforms.”  He dispels several myths that you still find all over the place from people who don’t study history.
