Overview

The period following the Civil War, known as Reconstruction, was a troubled time for the United States. The North had won the Civil War and reunited the Union. The South, which had fought for its independence, was bitter as it tried to adjust to being part of the United States once again. African-American slaves were freed and made citizens. To these former slaves, the victory of the North fulfilled their dreams of being free. They found out, however, that freedom could be quickly taken away as white Southerners protested the changes it imposed upon them by the North with violence and hatred. In The Reconstruction of the South After the Civil War in United States History, author Marsha Ziff traces the course of Reconstruction, highlighting the people and the events involved in one of the most turbulent times in American history. She examines the frustration and determination of African Americans as they began their journey out of the ruins of slavery and the Civil War toward freedom and equality.
