This chapter explains reconstruction and redemption after the Civil War. Bishop Benjamin Tanner was convinced that Congressional Reconstruction heralded the beginning of a New World. Reconstruction brought the abolition of slavery and the restoring of their family life on a more permanent basis. Despite the gains of Congressional Reconstruction for black families, the Civil War was a lingering catastrophe for South Carolina's children.
