Overview

In the summer of 1868, just three years after the end of the U.S. Civil War, the country was at war again. This time, however, the fight was not on the battlefield. A fierce dedication to determining the fate of the South led Congress to choose to impeach the president and then place him on trial for defying Congressional authority. To many observers, the impeachment and trial of President Andrew Johnson symbolized the larger power struggle between the executive and legislative branches of the U.S. government. Reconstruction examines one of the most controversial eras in U.S. history. During Reconstruction, the nation sought to reestablish itself in the aftermath of the Civil War, to overcome regional politics, and to redefine the political, social, and economic realities of the nation's four million black citizens.

The Civil War: A Nation Divided offers a unique perspective on the Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in America's history. Featuring primary source material, each title in this informative new set details a specific topic of life during the war and its immediate aftermath.
