Politics of Reconstruction

This is Eric Foner and Richard Brookhiser having a conversation about politics during the Reconstruction Era. It’s an outstanding video offering us insight into this period of time that we all need to understand a lot better.

The video’s description reads, “Eric Foner and Richard Brookhiser talked about the process of Reconstruction for both the national and local governments. They spoke about political party divisions of the time and the impact of the Reconstruction Amendments.”

    Agree 100% Just listened to it while prepping dinner stuff for the week. Now on to read Dr. Foner’s book on Reconstruction before mid-June
