9780195077575: A History of US: Book 7: Reconstruction and Reform

America began to rebuild after the devastation of the Civil War. Urban areas grew, the plains and western farm lands became settled, the women's and labor movements began, and exciting new inventions, such as the telegraph, telephone, and electric light, began to appear. Reconstruction and
Reform epitomizes the story of the struggle to fulfill the promise of freedom, the cornerstone of A History of US.

From the Publisher:

Covering a time of great hope and incredible change, Reconstructing America is a dramatic look at life after the Civil War in the newly re-United States. Railroad tycoons were roaring across the country. New cities sprang up across the plains, and a new and different American West came into being: a land of farmers, ranchers, miners, and city dwellers. Back east, large-scale immigration was also going on, but not all Americans wanted newcomers in the country. Technology moved forward: Thomas Edison lit up the world with his electric light. And social justice was on everyone's mind with Carry Nation wielding a hatchet in her battle against drunkenness and Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. DuBois counseling newly freed African Americans to behave in very different ways.
