What was reconstruction? / by Sherri L. Smith ; illustrated by Tim Foley.

Smith, Sherri L., (author.). Foley, Tim, 1962- (illustrator.).


"Reconstruction -- the period after the Civil War -- was meant to give newly freed Black people the same rights as white people. And indeed there were monumental changes once slavery ended -- thriving new Black communities, the first Black members in Congress, and a new sense of dignity for many Black Americans. But this time of hope didn't last long and instead, a deeply segregated United States continued on for another hundred years. Find out what went wrong in this fascinating overview of a troubled time"-- Provided by publisher.
