Beyond the Civil WarStreaming Video - 2011
When General Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox, it marked the end of a terrible period of conflict that nearly destroyed the United States. But it also marked the beginning of a period of recovery that was in many ways as painful as the war itself. Freed blacks remained essentially enslaved, and race and tax riots, marauders and insurgents, profiteers, carpetbaggers, the KKK, and Jesse James all contributed to the post-Civil War turmoil. This A & E Special uses dramatizations, archival photos, and meticulous scholarship to show in stunning detail the trials that befell America during the time period known as Reconstruction.
