Columbia, South Carolina, offers visitors the unique opportunity to dive deep into American history and learn about the Reconstruction Era, a time of hope and turmoil following the Civil War. This short period from 1865 to 1877 was a challenging time of rebuilding the nation by integrating the southern states back into the Union after the Civil War.

Efforts are being made to bring greater attention to the Reconstruction Era, emphasizing its significance in shaping American history. Columbia, South Carolina, is leading the charge with the Reconstruction Era Trail, which tells the story of the post-Civil War period as it happened in Columbia, South Carolina.
