Battle Over Reconstruction Mark Summers talked about the political battles surrounding Reconstruction and how the era has been understood through history. Mr. Summers used political cartoons, newspaper headlines, and individual anecdotes from the period to illustrate the primary topics of debate and how many of the issues argued are still relevant today.
