F311 Fall 2018 Reconstruction after the Civil War
Thursdays, 11:50–1:15, Oct. 18–Nov. 8
Instructor: Alan Gropman
Reconstruction has been badly examined in United States history. People old enough to take OLLI courses were taught even more lies about Reconstruction than about the causes of the Civil War, its military history, and the worth of Ulysses S. Grant. Racism became the foundation of textbook histories of the era, and it still affects culture and politics today.
