How the North Won the War and the South Won the Peace

To understand what’s happening today, I need to understand why it is happening today. We live in a world colored by the myth that the Civil War settled the issue of race in the US once and for all. In fact, the North may have ‘won’ the war, but the South won the peace and continued to treat African Americans much the same way they had before the war but without institutionalized slavery.
