Reconstruction and the Gilded Age

In the decades following the Civil War, America expanded quickly—growing larger, richer, and more diverse, but the chasm between rich and poor grew with equal rapidity. Noted historians discuss the dynamic period of the late 19th century, a time when American society was divided on ethnic, racial, religious, economic, and political lines.

Richard White is Margaret Byrne Professor of American History at Stanford University and the author of The Republic for Which It Stands: The United States during Reconstruction and the Gilded Age, 18651896. Louis P. Masur (moderator) is Distinguished Professor of American Studies and History at Rutgers University.
