One-Day Seminar: Civil War and Reconstruction hosted by Lancaster History Museum (Lancaster, PA)
November 16, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm
With the nation’s struggle to end slavery successful, Reconstruction should have been a peaceful process to repair the Union and to extend full civil and political rights to the former slaves. Instead, it degenerated into violence and strife with black civil and political rights indefinitely postponed. We will use period documents to examine and explain the Reconstruction period.
Registration opens at 8:30 am
