National Reconciliation After the Civil War Caroline Janney talked about national reconciliation and its limits in the post-Civil War era. She argued that the Spanish-American War in 1898 bonded former white Confederates and Unionists into one national army, helping to reunite the country. But, she said this reunion came with restrictions that denied equality for African-American soldiers, a division mirrored in American society at-large.

“The Civil War, the Spanish-American War and (the Limits of) National Reconciliation” was a part of the American Civil War Museum’s 2016 symposium “The Road from Appomattox: Political Violence, Military Conflict, and National Reunion,” a day-long symposium held at the Library of Virginia in Richmond. close
