  • Chapter 15"What Is Freedom?": Reconstruction, 1865–1877After the Civil War, freedpersons (formerly enslaved individuals; freedman/freedmen; freedwoman/freedwomen) and white allies in the North and South attempted to redefine the meaning and boundaries of American freedom. Freedom, once for whites only, now incorporated black Americans. By rewriting laws, African-Americans, for the first time, would be recognized as citizens with equal rights and the right to vote, even in the South. Blacks created their own schools, churches, and other institutions. Though many of Reconstruction’s achievements were short-lived and defeated by violence and opposition, Reconstruction laid the basis for future freedom struggles.
  • In this lecture, we will work through a number of themes that focus on the creation, implementation, and removal of the period of post–Civil War Reconstruction in the United States from 1865–1877. The are four major subtopics of this lecture, which together tell the chronological and thematic development of many of the events during the Reconstruction Period—The Meaning of Freedom, The Making of Radical Reconstruction, Radical Reconstruction in the South, and The Overthrow of Reconstruction. When studying both the textbook and lecture notes, it will be helpful to connect each of these larger topics’ meanings to construct an understanding of Reconstruction as a whole. Additionally, connecting the people, events, dates, and overall anecdotes (historical stories/examples) within each subtopic will also give you a better understanding of each individual stage of Reconstruction.
