Reconstruction Era

Video Segment |04:33

Outlines the Reconstruction Era during 1865 to 1877, a time when many questions needed answers. Should free slaves receive assistance? What changes do confederate states have to make before being readmitted back into the union? Unfortunately, the fight for African Americans to gain true equality was not gained during this time and would take nearly a century.
