We tend to forget the failure of Reconstruction all too easily; this talk went a good way toward correcting that.
This seminar was the last in a series of 26 consecutive Monday seminars on American History by Dr. Bell. This review is about the entire series. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget and that I wish was still ongoing! Being able to spend 26 Monday afternoons learning about early American history through Reconstruction in chronological order with a presenter as brilliant as Dr. Bell was an absolutely privilege as well as a fantastic learning process. He can't be beat with his combination of erudition, passion, sense of humor, warmth, and eloquence. Every one of the 26 seminars had me fully engaged, and each time I walked away with something deeply important about American history that helped me understand my world better. I can't thank him enough for devoting 26 Mondays to this endeavor. It was also great fun because he makes it fun!
The finale to a wonderful series of lectures by Dr Bell My Mondays will not be the same
