Virtual Tour: Civil War & Reconstruction Exhibit @ the National Constitution Center
Join us as we explore the National Constitution Center’s compelling exhibit, Civil War and Reconstruction: The Battle for Freedom and Equality, as a museum educators leads us through the exhibit. Learn how constitutional clashes over slavery set the stage for the Civil War, and how the nation transformed the Constitution after the war during the Reconstruction period, taking a particularly close look at the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments.
Along the way, our guide will highlight the stories of people like Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, and other figures central to the conflict over slavery. We will also get an up-close look at special artifacts on display, including original copies of the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments, Dred Scott’s signed petition for freedom, a fragment of the flag that Abraham Lincoln raised at Independence Hall, a commemorative copy of the Emancipation Proclamation signed by Lincoln, and more!
