“An Uphill Battle: The Unfulfilled Promise of the Civil War 1865-1896”

June 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Free

At the end of the Civil War, great change seemed promised with the first federal civil rights acts and amendments. Why instead did the nation descend into segregation? In recognition of Juneteenth, lead historic-site interpreter Gavin Malone explores the constitutional amendments, the first federal civil rights acts, Delaware’s political climate and reactions to federal legislation ending with the Plessy decision. 302-744-5054 or mailto:OSHmuseum@delaware.gov.
