Tonight I'm joined by Prof. Daina Ramey Berry, Prof. Eric Walther, and Prof. Allyson Hobbs, three scholars of American history, to unpack the causes and consequences -- both immediate and enduring -- of the deadliest war in U.S. history, 150 years after its final battle.

In the clip below, the panel reflects on the period of Reconstruction immediately following the war, and on the incompleteness of a landless emancipation.
