Rebuilding America: Reconstruction and Jim Crow

After the Civil War, Virginians eagerly embraced economic development and technological change while resisting political and social change. Indeed, as Virginia moved forward in many ways and living standards improved, society was rigidly segregated by race. This program examines the ways in which Virginians and other former Confederates dealt with rebuilding and reunification after the Civil War. Particular attention is paid to the impacts of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, the origins of Jim Crow, and other steps taken to disenfranchise African Americans and poor whites.
