Imagine that you were given the job of designing an exhibit on Reconstruction for the general public. How would you explain Reconstruction’s significance? What years would you use to mark the period? (i.e. would you keep the conventional periodization of 1865-1877, start the period earlier, and/or extend it to include later years?). What people, and/or political, social, economic, and/or cultural dynamics would your exhibit highlight? Choose at least 4 examples to include in your exhibit and explain what each example teaches the public about the significance of Reconstruction.
