    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.
