Although the cannons had fallen silent the Union would be preserved, the reunited United States of America now had a difficult task: Reconstruction of the decimated Southern states. The era from 1865-77 is what many historian view as the "Second Civil War," in which the major political players of the day-Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson and Ulyesses S. Grant among them-fought to reintegrate freed slaves into society and unify the nation once again. 2004/color/175 min/NR/widescreen.
