PBS Launches Companion Site For American Experience Reconstruction: The Second Civil War

PBS Launches Companion Site For American Experience Reconstruction: The Second Civil WarOn a misty April evening in 1865, a jubilant crowd packed the White House lawn to hear President Abraham Lincoln’s first speech since the end of the Civil War. They expected a stirring celebration of the Union victory—but instead got harsh reality. 

Even with the South defeated, Lincoln warned, the future would be “fraught with great difficulty.” He called the task ahead reconstruction—a word that has returned to American headlines nearly a century and a half later, in the aftermath of the war in Iraq.

On Monday and Tuesday, January 12 and 13, 2004, at 9pm on PBS, American Experience premieres Reconstruction: The Second Civil War, a two-part, three-hour series that examines one of the least understood periods in American history. Elizabeth Deane (The Kennedys, The Rockefellers, Ulysses S. Grant) is series producer; Llewellyn Smith (Africans in America, Jubilee Singers: Sacrifice and Glory, Race: The Power of an Illusion) is producer of Part I; Patricia Garcia-Rios (Chicago: City of the Century) is co-producer of Part II. Dion Graham narrates. 

A comprehensive Web site at features a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, a state-by-state exploration of Reconstruction events and laws, personal accounts from the era, bonus video material, and a teacher’s guide.
