Wartime Reconstruction: Imagining the Aftermath


The Turning point in the Civil War was the re-election of Abraham Lincoln in 1864. Although the concerted efforts of northern Peace Democrats and a palpable war weariness among the electorate made Lincolns victory uncertain, timely Union victories in Atlanta and Mobile in September of 1864 secured Lincolns re-election in November. This lecture concludes Professor Blights section on the war, following Lee and Grant to Appomattox Courthouse, and describing the surrender of Confederate forces.
