The Reconstruction Presidents, by Brooks D. Simpson, presented by Rob Dickson.
In this work, author Brooks Simpson, a very well published author on the subject, looks at Reconstruction from the perspectives of Presidents Lincoln, Johnson, Grant, and Hayes. It deals with the nearly intractable, hopelessly thorny national problem of just how should America become one country again after a terrible Civil War without carrying the scars forever. Simpson looks closely into the manner in which these four presidents handled the re-knitting of the political and social national fabric and finds that their own personal styles had a great deal to do with their successes and failures. Simpson shines light on a poorly understood, but critical era of American history whose echoes can be heard today.
