DVD - 2007

In 1866, the year immediately following the end of the Civil War, America was supposed to be reuniting, healing its wounds, and moving past years of civil unrest. However, a closer look into this historic time reveals a sinister snapshot of a discordant nation caught in the midst of deadly race riots and angry insurgencies. Examines the disturbing reality behind the murder, terrorism, and chaos that marked the uncertain period of Reconstruction in America.

Review by Publisher Summary 1

The History Channel takes a look at the years following the end of the Civil War in America on this program. Instead of coming together as a united nation, the country was plagued by racial problems, riots and a government that was losing control of its citizens.
