The end of the American Civil War is not the end of the conflict between Northern states and Southern states. The battlefield shooting is over, but the political arguments about civil rights go on sometimes with new violence between whites and black citizens. It is a confusing and dark time as Americans try to put their broken nation back together. The lessons learned and missed - in the Reconstruction Era will affect American history for another 100 years. This graphic novel will make sense of the social and political swirl at the end of the 1800s.
