The Significance of Reconstruction after the Civil War in American history

IDEAS-CWSC Gilder Lehrman public lecture

Reconstruction after the Civil War is the least-known era in the American past. Professor Foner explains why an understanding of reconstruction is essential to knowledge of the course of American history, and American society today.

Eric Foner, DeWitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia University, is one of the USA's most prominent historians. He received his doctoral degree at Columbia under the supervision of Richard Hofstadter. His most recent book is Forever Free: The Story of Emancipation and Reconstruction (2005).
