The influential and seminal work by Eric Foner, Reconstruction: America’s unfinished revolution, is 25 years old this year. I read this book for a history class at the University of South Carolina. It was a real eye opener on the promises and ultimate failure that was Reconstruction in the South after the Civil War. Above is a video of Eric Foner discussing his work at the Organization of American Historians annual meeting in San Francisco.
