Completing the Revolution

In some ways, the  Civil War completed the American Revolution. The ideals boldly  proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence, that “all men are created  equal”, were now being somewhat realized. The reality was that at the  end of Reconstruction the United States was still, in fact, an  “unfinished nation,” and that it will be the Civil Rights era and its  accomplishments that completed the revolution.
