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.
