Overview

From the award-winning authors of Who Built America?, Freedom's Unfinished Revolution offers a ground-breaking presentation of the Civil War and Reconstruction. Filled with a wide array of original source materials including letters, speeches, excerpts from novels and newspapers, photographs, engravings, art and political cartoons, Freedom's Unfinished Revolution arose out of what the Teacher's Advisory Committee has called "the need and desire to create a textbook for high school students that would make the Reconstruction come alive."
