This is an excellent video covering Reconstruction in Tennessee. It comes to us from WNPT, the Tennessee Public Broadcasting channel.
The video’s description reads: “The end of the Civil War was not the end of hostilities between North and South. Years of fighting over how to reunite the divided country and what role millions of newly freed African Americans would play still lay ahead. Tennessee’s tumultuous Reconstruction era is a riveting tale of revenge, domestic terror, and broken promises.”

Hat tip to Randy Lucas for this. I’ve been very tough on Mr. Lucas, but he deserves thanks for finding this video.
