I'm not old enough to have lived through this period, but my dad and mom did. My grandfather was born before the Civil War, so he vividly remembers the period of so-called "reconstruction." Anyway, I can't imagine what it must be like to have lived through the advent of cars, air travel, space, and the whiners of today's brave new world. But I know this for sure, I deeply appreciate all that my father and his generation did to make my world such a place of opportunity.
