Reconstruction and Civil Rights

Here’s Professor Eric Foner of Columbia University speaking at the U.S. Capitol Historical Society’s 2017 symposium. The video’s description reads, “Eric Foner talked about the challenges of establishing civil rights for freedmen in the Reconstruction period and beyond. This talk was part of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society’s annual symposium.”

This is a truly outstanding presentation. It’s well worth your time.

    Al,
    Another timely post. Prof. Foner is always an excellent speaker. This is the first time I heard of the reasoning on why armories are located in the inner cities, I have to check this out.
