The History Channel shows in stunning detail the trials that befell America as it healed during the Reconstruction. Blood continued to flow freely long after peace was made. Murder, terrorism & chaos filled the void left by the devastation of the war. "Free" black men & women remained enslaved. Race & tax riots, marauders and insurgents, profiteers, carpetbaggers, the KKK and Jesse James all contributed to the turmoil. Using archival images, accurate dramatizations & the latest scholarship, this DVD is an informative and dramatic account of this terrible, shameful episode in American history.
