Turning Points in the History of the South: Part 3 - Reconstruction Repercussions (Prerecorded)

John Boles

The South has long been a region considered different from the rest of the nation, although in colonial days the South was precisely what promoters in England expected and wanted colonies to be and New England was the exception. But that all changed. This course examines developments that shaped the history and culture of the region.

Part III: Reconstruction Repercussions
This class will discuss the variety of ways that the consequences of the Civil War effected the region in particular. The South of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century was the poorest, sickest, most racist, least advanced section of the country, with the most deplorable politics.
