150th Anniversary of Reconstruction

Here’s a discussion among historians David Blight, Eric Foner, and Edna Greene Medford, moderated by Harold Holzer, on Reconstruction.

This is an excellent discussion.

The video’s description reads, “Historians and authors talked about the 150th anniversary of Reconstruction and examined the challenges faced in the post-Civil War era of reunifying and rebuilding the Union. They spoke about the role of the Freedmen’s Bureau, the impact of carpetbaggers, and the importance of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments. Due to audio difficulties at the beginning of the program, this discussion was joined in progress.”
