Lukewarm Northerners into supporting the Radical Republicans The US Congress then kept the Union Army in the South and imposed Black mancipation on the SouthThe South however was tenacious Groups like the KKK came into being Acts of violence against Blacks and pro Black White Republicans multiplied Resolve in the North weakened in the face of the determined Southern opposition At the same time the Radicals who had promoted Black Rights wanted to move on to other progressive causes such as Women s Rights Child Labour Worker s Rights and Public Health When the results of the 1876 All Quiet on the Western Front election to select Grant s successor were contested the Republicans agreed to pull the US army out of the South inxchange for the Southern agreement that the Republican Hayes become presidentFor me the major disappointment in Foner s book which indeed tells the history of the politics of Reconstruction very well is that it ignores very other aspect At the beginning of the 20th Century Southern per capita wealth was one third that of the North Illiteracy was rampant both among southern Blacks and Whites The South trailed far behind the North in terms of industrialization Southern agriculture was overly committed to cotton which because of declining prices created massive rural poverty Foner simply does not discuss whether or not the actions of the Reconstruction governments were in any way responsible for the problems that later followed Arguably these issues are outside of the scope of Foner s work but as a reader from the general public rather than an undergraduate researching an ssay on the political aspect of the Reconstruction I found the gaps in Foner s book to be Best Mechanic Ever extremely irritating To use words like masterful or thorough to describe Eric Foner s Reconstruction is to give too little credit to what is truly anarth shattering contribution to American historical thoughtReconstruction is a landmark historical account of one of the most misunderstood and maligned periods in American history Using in depth archival study Foner reconstructs Reconstruction showing how the newly formed Republican party became weighed down by its own corruption and silenced the radicals who called for Dinosaur Dinners euality before the law of all people From the midst of the Civil War to the reclaiming of the South by white redemptionists Foner gives voice to a period of time in which black Americans were freedlected and then violently silenced Most remarkable among the tales is this the violence against black Americans In His Blood especially in the South didn tnd with Reconstruction it only took on a new form And similarly it continues to reform itself Desert Kings (Deathlands, even into 2020 Redemption of the South rebuttal of Reconstruction racism by another nameFoner s book is dense intense and thorough and will take a while to read and process but no work of history will have an impact uite like this MASTERFUL HISTORY OF RECONSTRUCTION Fonersxcellent book is a masterfull historical synthesis of the period known as Reconstruction after the American Civil War 1861 65The book is An Officer and a Spy extremely readable comprehensive and full of intelligent analysis of the social cultural racial andconomic forces of the Exposed (Annika Bengtzon, era amply illustrated with pertinent uotes from all those involved The situation after thend of the civil war when the defeated south was occupied by the Union Army is one that I knew little about before reading this book but that proved to be no obstacle to Ooko engaging with Foners well written bookHe pictures the position of the freed Slaves the Confederate south and the Union North with grea The further I get into this book the I realize that we have virtually no understanding as a culture of one of the most important periods in American history Typically we learn that Lincoln freed the slaves United the Union once again and we all lived happilyver after This book fills in those gaps beginning with the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 and traces not only the difficulties of freedmen in their uest for any sort of political of civil Naked euality but also the prevailing social climate in the South where the old I was reading Battle Cry of Freedom and noticed that Frederick Douglass was cited saying Once let the black man get upon his person the brass letters US let him get anagle on his button and

The capstone of the revisionist interpretation of Reconstruction was Eric Foner s 1989 work Reconstruction America s Unfinished Revolution 1863 1877 fittingly replacing Dunning s 1907 Reconstruction Political and Economic in the updated round of works in the New American Nation series Foner coupled the synthesis of a generation of scholarship with copious original research in Southern archives inaccessible to Du Bois Nevertheless Foner choed many of Du Bois themes a harmonizing born not just of overlapping vidence and regard for the agency of the freedmen but also of a readiness to frame Reconstruction at least partially within a larger vision of class conflict between labor and capital To that nd Foner is attentive to the divisions within the South which divided the small farmers of the high country from the planters of the bottom lands and the fragile interracial alliance within the Republican Party which temporarily desperately buoyed the hopes of the Freedpeople Despite intimidation and lack of resources former slaves anchored the new political order ushered in by Radical Reconstruction In defiance of fatigue hardship hunger and threats of Uncommon Wisdom employers the new citizens were driven on by a hunger foruality and opportunity and an xultant sense of the possible Rarely Foner notes has a community invested so many hopes in politics as did blacks during Radical Reconstruction It was an aspiration tragically undone in Foner s analysis by the interplay of racism and class conflict and by the naivet with which Northern supporters who were crucial to the Reconstruction xperiment met both Informed by the Free Labor ideology which had Art entered the northern identity in part as a critiue of slave society many supporters of Reconstruction were attempting to dissolve the colossal tensions within Southern society by fostering as general Beadle put it to a joint Congressional Committee an understanding of the mutual dependence of labor and capital Far from coming to appreciate the natural harmony of freed labor however Southerners were locked in racial struggle arising not from a misunderstanding but from the irreconcilable interests of former masters and former slaves asach sought to define the meaning of mancipation It was a struggle in which the federal government seldom intervened with the necessary fixity of purpose Ultimately the clock ran out when the class conflict of northern society amid the upheavals of industrialization led to waning Republican commitment to the interests of black laborers The conseuences outlined by Foner parallel those delineated by Du Bois a solid South founded on reactionary oppression which helped define the contours of American politics and weaken the prospects not simply of change in racial matters but of progressive legislation in many other realms The Reconstruction Period in American history is the ra that is probably the most misunderstood The view of this historical Attracting Songbirds to Your Backyard event has taken such a complete and utter transformation as historians have been interpreting and reinterpreting it over the years that tr I found this anxcellent book on an important time in American history that still impacts race The Matriarchs (The Family euality and relations to this day It is a book designed to appeal to real history buffs though It is incredibly comprehensive with almost half of the total pages of the book devoted to will researched footnotes More like a text book orncyclopedia Notes for the Everlost entry on the subject than a casual read I became aware not long after leaving a public high school in Texas when my family moved to the San Francisco area where I complete high school that much of what I had been taught in Texas this was in the late 1960s about the Civil War and Reconstruction was distorted or outright false However this book in detail completes myducation in learning that what I was taught then was SouthernConfederate revisionist BS history Reconstruction America s Unfinished Revolution 1863 1877 is an uninformative slog which paradoxically is still deserving of the all the many prizes it received when it was published in 1988 It won awards because of its brilliant description of the political process of the reconstruction It is uninformative because it addressesA Musket On His Shoulder

review Reconstruction America's Unfinished Revolution 1863 1877Isition of property familiarity and participation with the country s political system and helping freed blacks assert their legal rights in a country riven by a long painful war President Lincoln had set up this bureau before his death Reconstruction was happening in the aftermath of Lincoln s assassination and it had all of the problems and growing pains one would Deep Listening expect after a country has fought a protracted Civil War and a group of millions ofnslaved people were freed with many lacking resources or the Bird-by-Bird Gardening education and knowledge to adeuately use this newfound freedom This was complicated further because millions of defeated white Southerners were living in chaos deprived of their land and their forced labor to work it and shocked at theffrontery of the freed blacks who were no longer under their controlA group of Radical Republican politicians were strong advocates for black male The Works of Saint Augustine enfranchisement right to vote and making sure that the Freedmen as they were called reaped the benefits of their newfound libertyBut things are never simple and the first opposition to the Freedman s Bureau agenda came from President Andrew Johnson whom Foner describes as incompetent Johnson was a pale shadow compared to Abe Lincoln and was opposed to the 14th Amendment giving all male US citizens over age 21 the right to vote among other things Johnson wanted to keep the Presidency and felt that he needed the support of Southern democrats to do this As a result he worked against many of the changes the Freedman s Bureau was making Johnson did not feel blacks had a place in Southern Reconstruction and he pardoned many Confederate leaders in hisfforts to appease potential voters Johnson Unbuttoning the CEO (The Suits Undone ended up very nearly impeached by congress in what was probably an unjust action Johnson was a poor politician and was not the type who had the greatness within him to rise to the high office he had achieved by accidentThe blacks under the Freedman s Bureau and with US military protection made great strides and over 800 werelected to public office between 1871 1876 This is My Teacher Is a Robot especially impressive since millions of white Southerners still viewed them as inferior beings and conducted lynchings and rapes and went on various killing sprees This was around the time of the first rising of the Ku Klux Klan who functioned as a sort of organized hate group to keep the blacks down During any time of chaos in a country various people will be drawn to the fray hoping for some financial gain or in support of one side or the other The South had the scallywags white Southerners who championed the black cause and collaborated with the Northern Radical Republicans Many Northernntrepreneurs called carpetbaggers came South hoping to profit from Reconstruction s sea changesFoner sees Reconstruction as an absolute failure but not without redeeming ualities President Grant who succeeded Johnson was a supporter of Reconstruction and used US Federal troops to nforce it Many forces seemed to bring Reconstruction to a halt In 1873 a major conomic depression hit the US and political attention was given to it Groups like the Ku Klux and disaffected whites in the South also played their part by continually fighting the changes in their society instead of Moanas New Friend (Disney Moana) embracing them By 1876 the country s mood had changed and most of the Radical Republicans had died out Moremphasis was placed on the Freedmen being responsible for their own uplifting This was a major Professional Capital error since it was not always possible and there were parts of the South whereven the Freedman s Bureau had been powerless to make real changes If Federal Troops had been left on the ground in the US South along with an agenda of continued change progress might have continued The hateful prejudices and scheming of Southern Whites along with Northern political apathy spelled the doom of formal Reconstruction Seven Dwarfs Find a House (Disney Classic) efforts Progress had been madespecially with the ratification of the 15th Amendment to the US Constitution in 1870 giving "all black male citizens age 21 or over the right to vote Sadly much of this progress was "black male citizens age 21 or over the right to vote Sadly much of this progress was or destroyed over the next 90 years at the local and judicial levelsIf you wish a detailed and organized
Account Of Foner Sof Foner s you cannot do better on Goodreads than the review by Hana one of the many persons I follow whose breadth of knowledge must be about a thousand times greater than mine Hana describes Foner s book as a bitter read and I think this is the most apt description I ve read of it after reading dozens of reviews It describes a shameful time in American history whose repercussions continue to this very dayBe advised that Reconstruction is a dense book chock full of vignettes and information If you are a half assed lazy slob such as I am it is NOT the book for you As Hana suggested you d be better off reading or listening to Foner s short version of reconstruction which fills up a mere 12 hours and 33 minutes of listening time on Audible or 352 pages of text a little over half the size of the book being reviewed Reconstruction America s Unfinished Revolution 1863 1871 is Foner s magnum opus on the topic and seems to be written Berlioz, Vol. 2 either for those of high intellect or professional historians not that these groups are mutuallyxclusive It is packed with information and if it has any weaknesses I would say that it could have been organized better and time could have been spent discussing Andrew Johnson and his role in sabotaging Reconstruction The Middle Sin (Cleo North efforts It is a book for the serious student of the topic and there are many accessible resources of this time of hopeful change thatnded in inglorious ignomin.
