Bridging the Gap

We understand that instructors may choose to end a course prior to the Civil War, or begin a course starting with the Civil War. To accommodate variations in course syllabi, we have made the Civil War and Reconstruction chapter (Vol. 1, Chapter 15) available as a separate PDF download.

“Learned and inviting, this beautifully realized consideration of the American experience deploys the craft of history to advance a profound account of fundamental themes. By integrating political, social, demographic, and economic understanding, the combination of analysis and narrative power in Building the American Republic will prove stimulating to teachers as well as their students.”—Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University
