The Reconstruction Era Reference Library provides targeted information on post-Civil War America, from the end of the war in 1865 to the Compromise of 1877.

Reconstruction Era Reference Library: Biographies examines key figures from the era, such as Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, Edwin M. Stanton, Charles Sumner and many others.


"Twenty-four biographies are provided here with an additional article, "Confederate Leaders," which includes brief articles about Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, Alexander Stephens and Robert A. Toombs. These articles are long enough to start students on reports about important persons in this time. Encouraging students with carefully created questions will lead to expanded content through broader research."--Blanche Woollsl, October 2005
