This reference for students in middle school and up features accessible writing, larger type, and many b&w historical photos and illustrations, along with a list of research topics for students, plus brief annotations on educational web sites, books, and documentaries on Reconstruction for use in the classroom or independently. Covering both Northern and Southern perspectives during the Reconstruction era after the Civil War, the book begins with a narrative overview from slavery and the Civil War through the Civil Rights movement and the legacy of Reconstruction. The next part of the book provides biographies of nine key figures, including presidents, politicians, social reformers, and former slaves. Part 3 presents excerpts from 15 primary sources, including political speeches, legislation, oral histories, newspaper accounts, and manifestos; each primary source comes with a brief intro for context. The book also contains a chronology from the war to the present, plus a glossary of people, places, and terms. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
