The Civil War in North Carolina Part 3

09/25/2002 | 26m 46s

William Harris & Freddie Parker join Laura Edwards, associate professor of history at Duke University to talk about how women, African Americans and the North Carolina government managed under Reconstruction. The program begins at the end of the Civil War, with North Carolina structurally and economically in ruins. Because more than 40,000 men died in the war, women were forced to learn farm work.
