Book Description Facts on File Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This title takes a thorough look at the Civil War and Reconstruction - from the family life ate to favorite pastimes. Characterized by the tragedy of the Civil War and its aftermath, the period of 1860 to 1876 presented the greatest challenge to a still young national government. The battle to abolish slavery and reform the country after the secession of 11 Southern states was led by Abraham Lincoln. Throughout this turmoil, a burgeoning industrial economy - made possible largely by the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869 - began to transform the American economy and society just as profoundly as the effects of the war. Offering readers a fascinating glimpse into this period in history, The Civil War and Reconstruction is written in an easy-to-read narrative format enhanced by helpful further reading lists and black-and-white illustrations. Coverage of this title includes: cities and urban life; education; family and daily life; material culture; population trends and migration; rural life; social attitudes; and, more.
