The Reconstruction Era and the Fragility of Democracy

How does society rebuild after extraordinary division and trauma, when the ideals and values of democracy are most vulnerable? We will explore this significant period  in U.S. history, when Americans were faced with the challenge of restoring a nation amid the social and political upheaval of the civil war. In this workshop, we will also have the benefit of discussing this tempestuous moment in history at the birthplace of renowned scientist, educator and humanitarian George Washington Carver.

After this workshop, you will become part of the Facing History educator network, which allows you access to a rich slate of educator resources, and be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost.
