What Did Reconstruction Achieve?

Date: Thursday, July 1, 2010
Time: 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

Reconstruction remains one of the most disputed periods in American history. How did it re-create the nation that collapsed in 1861? Did it solidify the North's victory or permit the South to escape defeat? Did it resolve the issues that caused the War or merely postpone a final reckoning?
