C-SPAN has done a great job focusing on Reconstruction over the past few years. Many of these talks have already been posted at the Civil War Memory Facebook page, but I thought it would be helpful to feature them in one place. This is not an exhaustive list, but it does reflect the scope of what has been covered thus far. Enjoy.

About Kevin Levin

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post. What next? Scroll down and leave a comment if you are so inclined. Looking for more Civil War content? Join the Civil War Memory Facebook group and follow me on Twitter. Check out my book, Remembering the Battle of the Crater: War as Murder, which is an ideal introduction to the subject of Civil War memory and the 1864 battle.

  1. Kevin, Thanks for this. Guess I need to watch some of these before CWI.

  2. I watched the Cowboys one first (of course). Very enjoyable. I was a bit surprised that the first Texan trail cowboys were former Confederate soldiers and former slaves who just got on with the job – was there no skill to being a cowboy, then? I’d have expected they’d need to hire some experienced Mexican vaqueros.
    A point she didn’t mention with Civil War relevance; I believe Kansas was largely settled by Union veterans who rather objected to the Texas cowboys driving their tick-infested cattle through the country.

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
