Reconstruction Era National Park
"The Reconstruction era, 1861-1898, was the historic period in which the United States grappled with the question of how to integrate millions of newly freed African Americans into social, political, economic and labor systems. The historical events that transpired in Beaufort County, South Carolina, make it an ideal place to tell stories of experimentation, transformation, hope, accomplishment, and disappointment."
