America After the Civil War
For this discussion board, you will need to watch Reconstruction: America After the Civil War: Then think about the following statement: “It seemed that the longer Reconstruction continued, the more the former Confederates lamented the loss of their way of life.” Using specific examples from the film, discuss whether or not you believe this assessment to be true. How were blacks treated in the South after the Civil War? Is this similar or different to how you might have imagined based on the textbook?
