The Epilogue looks at the period that immediately followed the Civil War in America and the challenges the country faced. After the Civil War much remained to be determined about two issues: the position of ex-slaves in the political, economic, and social system of the South and the political re-formation of the ex-Confederate states. Little attention was given to these issues in the letters in this volume. The Epilogue tries to explain why this might be.
