Review: CAUSE: RECONSTRUCTION AMERICA 1863-1877 by Tonya Bolden

Impressions In Ink reviewed Cause: Reconstruction America 1863-1877 by Tonya Bolden for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011.  Here’s an excerpt:

Books on the Reconstruction can be one-sided, meaning an author can express his own feelings about the Civil War through the pages of their book. I did not feel that Cause by Tonya Bolden was written in anyway slanting to one side or the other. Views are expressed by those people that lived during this time period from both sides of the Civil War. Views are expressed from the Presidents that were in office during this period.

Views are expressed from freed slaves that lived during this time period. I feel this is a balanced book from any angle.
