Reconstruction from Present

Civil War ended 150 years ago with the announcement of Robert Lee E.’s formal surrender by Confederate Army General Robert Lee. America will continue its focus on the sequicentennial reconstruction period, which was turbulent and disturbing. The History of Reconstruction in the United States to Present examines the events that have occurred from the Civil War to today. The emphasis of this book is on the most important economic, social, and political movements in the 21st century. Shortly after America’s Civil War (1865-1977), there was a push to solve the slavery problem and its related economic, social and political legacy. Also, the crisis resulting from readmission of slaves had to be addressed. In addition to the formal unification, an effort was made to consolidate the 11 states who had secessions during and after the war. Reconstruction to Present, the new company that presented the deal, offered solutions to the social and economic welfare of Americans.

Limitation Civil Liberties During World War I, citizens were subjected to disturbing limitations. During the First World War, the government adopted a series of resolutions which severely restricted civil liberties. The draft and the entry into the war were clearly linked with widespread dissent (European Conference on Computer Vision, and In Fleet, 2014. In 1917, in response to the dissent, the government passed The Espionage Act. Although the law was meant to curb dissent and repress it, courts abused its provisions to punish those who disagreed with it. Voices of FreedomAccordingly, this collection of documents shows that, while freedom may not have had a clear definition in the past, it still has a timeless definition that is unchanging. In fact, the United States has a history that is heavily influenced by debates and conflicts over freedom. Crises like Civil War, American Revolution and Cold War played a crucial role in changing the definition of freedom.

The Committee on Public Information or CPI was a government-funded independent agency created to change public opinions in order to support the First World War. It was an entity independent that spent approximately 26 months creating considerable enthusiasm for war initiatives.

Reconstruction to Present had a major influence in the promotion of patriotism as well as combating dissident groups. To deal with people who perceived themselves as rebellious, organizations such as the American Protective League were formed. APL also made German-Americans swear allegiance to the government, ensuring their safety and that of other Americans. United States Post Office carried out an important task in confiscating magazines belonging to companies deemed unpatriotic. As a consequence, the United States Post Office confiscated the magazines of companies that were deemed unpatriotic (European Conference on Computer Vision; & in Fleet, 2014).

Coercive Patriotism During World War I, coercive patriotic behavior took many forms. The government took measures to make the people support their mission to take an active part in World War I. The government used strong propaganda to convince the public of its ideologies. The government also used coercive patriotism to force citizens to purchase war bonds. People viewed extending hard and soft loans to the federal government as a way of showing their patriotism.

ConclusionReconstruction to Present was seen as a new deal that offered practical solutions that helped to enhance the socioeconomic welfare of the United States citizens. This included the period following the First World War in which the government took steps to solve the economic, political and social problems resulting from the war. The government wanted to improve relations between the federal and state governments so that the citizens could take an active part in the shaping of the economy.
