Nothing to Crow about...Reconstruction in Virginia
An Integrated, Interdisciplinary, Thematic unit created collaboratively to incorporate Virginia Standards of Learning with a variety of essential skills for 4th grade students. Virginians faced serious problems in rebuilding the state after the war. Freedoms and rights promised to African Americans were slowly taken away after Reconstruction, and it would take years to win them back. After the Civil War, industry and technology, transportation, and cities began to grow and contribute to Virginia's economy.
