The Civil War remains the singular most devastating event in the history of our Republic. More persons were killed in this one war than in all military events from the Revolutionary War to current military engagements cumulatively. The unprecedented loss of lives and destruction to property was not from without as within. How to put Humpty Dumpty back together again? The formidable challenge during the period of Reconstruction brought out the best and worst in Americans. The U.S. government imposed a de-Nazification program on Germany after WWII enabling it to achieve incredible healing in a relatively short time. Imagine if there had been a de-Confederization program after the Civil War how much closer we would be to “a more perfect Union?” The best efforts of Reconstruction, amid an incredibly challenging scenario, sought heroically to heal the wound of slavery and a civil war. Reconstruction remains a work in progress.
