Reconstruction and the National Park Service


Because the National Park Service reflects the historical priorities of Americans over time, it’s not surprising that it is so lacking in sites interpreting Reconstruction, since the great growth period for the NPS came when Reconstruction was not seen as so central to U.S. history as today. Hopefully, this is a good sign that not only is the agency taking the period seriously, but that the government will actually create some new sites to interpret the period exclusively.
