By Elizabeth Lee Thompson (Athens, University of Georgia Press, ) pp. $   Foner’s book is indispensible, but dense. A pithier primer can be found in Michael W. Fitzgerald’s “Splendid Failure: Postwar Reconstruction in.

Reconstruction, in U.S. history, the period (–77) that followed the American Civil War and during which attempts were made to redress the inequities of slavery and its political, social, and economic legacy and to solve the problems arising from the readmission to the Union of the 11 states that had seceded at or before the outbreak of war.

Long portrayed by many historians as a time. Reconstruction (), the turbulent era following the Civil War, was the effort to reintegrate Southern states from the Confederacy and 4 million newly-freed slaves into.

Reconstruction - Reconstruction - The end of Reconstruction: Nonetheless, Reconstruction soon began to wane. During the s, many Republicans retreated from both the racial egalitarianism and the broad definition of federal power spawned by the Civil War.

Southern corruption and instability, Reconstruction’s critics argued, stemmed from the exclusion of the region’s “best men”—the. Slavery v. Peonage. Peonage, also called debt slavery or debt servitude, is a system where an employer compels a worker to pay off a debt with work. The Reconstruction era was the period in American history that lasted from to following the American Civil War (–65) and is a significant chapter in the history of American civil truction ended the remnants of Confederate secession and abolished slavery, making the newly freed slaves citizens with civil rights ostensibly guaranteed by three new constitutional.

The Civil War devastated the South, and the end of slavery turned Southern society upside down. How did the South regain social, economic, and political stability in the wake of emancipation and wartime destruction, and how did the South come together with its former enemies in the North.

Why did the South not slip back into chaos. This book holds the keys to the answers to. The book's conclusions are in keeping with current historical interpretation of Reconstruction: “the Bankruptcy Act of helped to stabilize and entrench southern society's class and race structure after the Civil War” (p.

Since the Bankruptcy Act tended to favor local interests, it blunted the implementation of Reconstruction. Southern blacks were used by partisan Republicans as pawns in a larger political game, and the violent reaction of Southern whites was predictable, particularly when in some instances, Southern blacks were prodded to violence themselves by Republican Party zealots.

Leigh’s chapter on “Racial Adjustment” is one of the finest in the book. Klan tactics included riding out to victims’ houses, masked and armed, and firing into the homes or burning them down (Figure ).Other tactics relied more on the threat of violence, such as happened in Mississippi when fifty masked Klansmen rode out to a local schoolteacher’s house to express their displeasure with the school tax and to suggest that she consider leaving.

Moreover, her analysis of the law's repeal in seems hurried. A lack of data, finally, hampers Thompson's efforts to reconstruct an accurate portrait of debtors' property holdings. Nonetheless, historians of Reconstruction must come to grips with the findings of this exceptionally well-researched and well-written book.

Barreyre says Reconstruction created a “new situation” that “affected the whole dynamic of the political system” and encouraged the emergence and crystallization of economic sectionalism in the North. For example, the Bankruptcy Act of was aimed at Southern moratoria on debt recovery.

Ushering in the era of Congressional Reconstruction, the law wiped out the ten southern state governments and grouped them into five military districts. Each district was to hold a convention to frame a new constitution that would give African-American males the right to vote and would ratify the 14th Amendment.Reconstruction encompassed three major initiatives: restoration of the Union, transformation of Southern society, and enactment of progressive legislation favoring the rights of freed slaves.
