Donald L. Miller and Waldo E. Martin, Jr. follow the Civil War from after the Battle of Vicksburg to its conclusion and into Reconstruction, from 1863 to 1875. The presentation looks at the Battle of Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Address; Lincoln's reelection and assassination; Reconstruction challenges and policies, including the expectations of the newly freed slaves; the presidencies of Andrew Jackson and Ulysses S. Grant; and the reemergence of white supremacy and racial violence in the South.
