This installment of the acclaimed PBS television series "American Experience" looks at one of the least understood periods in American history, Reconstruction, which spanned the tumultuous years from 1863 to 1877. The documentary tracks the extraordinary stories of ordinary Americans -- Southerners, Northerners, white and black -- as they struggle to shape new lives in a United States turned upside down.
