    One thought on “The Civil War and Reconstruction”

    1. Since this was such a long book I will pick a few things that I found interesting. One, the south was hardly unified prior to the civil war. In some cases the majority of counties voted in referendum to remain part of the union and representatives went and voted to secede anyway. The hypocrisy of the south is even more shocking then I thought. As soon as they split in the name of a decentralized government, the first thing they did was form a strong central government.

    2. The best book to read and reference on Civil War and Reconstruction, especially reconstruction. We have for so long focused on the war itself and forget about the Fallout and atrocities afterward. A must read and a permanent reference volume for any student of the Civil War and government.

    3. Defense, serious history, but well worth the trouble. If you want to be able to have an informed opinion of the effects of the Civil War this is a great place to start.

    4. Even though the American Civil War ended in 1865, the revenge on and control of the South continued until 1876. The Republican party sought to punish white Southern Democrats for trying to secede from the Union. This helped give rise to the Klu Klux Klan which was founded by these Democrats to keep control over the new black Republicans.
