Welcome to the crumb tray.
I can't write until my allergies calm down. Till then, the radical reconstruction of the South after the Civil War was neither radical nor a reconstruction. Discuss.
I believe we should consult Lucas on this. He'd have some ample commentary on this. But he only uses the internet for research. Mostly. I think.
I'd argue it was (a) radical but not (b) a reconstruction. If anything, it was an altered state of the past where symbolic racism became (re)institutionalized.it was pretty radical for the first few years, then US Grant started being a wuss. and an alcoholic. and then shit just went downhill from there.
