Reconstruction | Palmetto Heritage


This show explains the importance of the election of 1876 and as a result how SC at one time had 2 governors from different political parties, who tried to rule the state at the same time. Reconstruction is told from two different viewpoints, a former slave, who is a democrat, and a plantation owner (now a red shirt), who is a Republican. Together they explain the role that the Red Shirts played in ending reconstruction in South Carolina.
