Civil Rights Act April 9, 1866 An Act to protect all Persons in the United States in their Civil Rights, and furnish the Means of their Vindication.

  • Compose a thoughtful answer to one of the questions.(I recommend you do this in a word processing program and then cut and paste your answer into the discussion forum).
  • Begin with a clear thesis statement (argument) that directly answers the question.
  • Next, develop TWO concrete examples drawn from TWO different assigned course materials.
  • Please cite each of your sources using a simple parenthetical citation form, including author’s last name, abbreviated title, and page. E.g.: (Foner, GML, 486).
  • Answers must be at least 200 words in length. Please use full sentences.

1) Eric Foner describes the ratification of the three Reconstruction Amendments as a “great constitutional revolution”? Why? In your opinion, what was most “revolutionary” about them? What least? Why?

2) In his Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln argued that the Civil War would lead to a “new birth of freedom” for the United States. Looking back from the end of the Reconstruction in 1876, was he right? Do you think he would have been satisfied with the results of Reconstruction? Why or why not?

3) How important to understanding the history of Reconstruction is it to get the ‘view from the bottom rail’? Why?

These book, and the PDF are the course material to choose the sources.

Eric Foner, Give Me Liberty! An American History, volume 2, Brief Fourth Edition:  xxiii-xxvi (on the theme of freedom); 442-74.

James Davidson and Mark Lytle, After the Fact: The Art of Historical Detection, volume 2, 6th edition: chapter 8, “View from the Bottom Rail”
