In recognition of the anniversary of Georgia’s founding, this short online program is an exploration of this year’s Georgia History Festival theme, “The Promise of a More Perfect Union: Reconstruction and the Gilded Age.” We examine the economic, political, and social changes that Georgians faced in the tumultuous period of the half century following the Civil War. Featuring greetings from friends and leaders across the state, this educational presentation includes classroom resources for guided listening appropriate for Georgia middle and high school students.
Teachers, the video is also available to watch on Schooltube.
