  • “They Cannot Expect . . . That a Loyal People Will Tolerate the
           Utterance of Such Sentiments”: The Campaign against Treasonous Speech
           during the Civil War
    • Abstract: On the basis of two sworn statements charging him with disloyalty, Isaac Thomas, a resident of Bucks Country, Pennsylvania, was arrested and incarcerated in Moyamensing Prison in September 1862. Thomas, a twenty-three-year-old schoolteacher, had previously so offended his neighbors with his language that they had thrown him out of a store. Thomas’s most recent affront to community sentiment, according to one witness, was his insistence that if he volunteered for military service at all, he would enlist in the Confederate army. Although Thomas never acted on his provocative statement, one of his accusers concluded that it was not safe to leave the man at liberty. William Stavely, who denounced Thomas independently ...

  • Confederate Imaginations with the Federals in the Postwar Order
    • Abstract: When two old antebellum Democratic Party colleagues, Francis P. Blair Sr. of Maryland and Confederate president Jefferson Davis met in Richmond, Virginia, in January 1865, they found much to discuss. As historians have noted, the veteran Border State politician and journalist wished to render reunion palatable to Davis. To this end, he hoped to tempt Davis into a joint program of expansion within the United States, and, by so doing, rekindle antebellum American nationalism and the popularity of reunion. Davis had a very different agenda. Historians know well and have documented his commitment to Confederate independence, but less understood is how the president envisaged the consequent postwar relationship between ... Read More

  • “Plenty of Work to Do”: Correspondence of an Illinois Farm Girl during
           the American Civil War
    • Abstract: “There is and will be plenty of work to do,” lamented young Mary Ann O’Donnell on February 18, 1862, as she toiled away on her family’s farm in Jasper County, Illinois. These words may seem trivial and mundane; after all, during those days in February, momentous military events were occurring in the American Civil War. Two of the most decisive events in the Civil War occurred in February 1862. Grant’s capture of Fort Henry on February 6 and Fort Donelson on February 16 destroyed the Confederacy’s first line of defense in Kentucky, forced the abandonment of a large portion of Tennessee, opened Northern invasion routes along the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers, and allowed Union gunboats to penetrate the Confederacy ...

  • Marital Cruelty in Antebellum America by Robin C. Sager (review)
    • Abstract: In this slim monograph, Robin C. Sager examines marital cruelty in antebellum America and its use in divorce cases. While much has been written about marriage, divorce, and even domestic violence in nineteenth-century America, this volume represents the first effort to analyze various types of cruelty levied against one’s spouse. Sager surveys legal terrain in three states—Virginia, Texas, and Wisconsin—including more than fifteen hundred cases of spousal cruelty, which shed light on marriage as both institution and lived experience.Through a comparative approach, Sager tests traditional assumptions about local influences on violent behavior. We learn that, despite its reputation for violence, the South ... Read More

  • I Remain Yours: Common Lives in Civil War Letters by Christopher Hager
           (review)
    • Abstract: The rich emotions and poetic qualities of Civil War letters were not confined to men of high status or education; even barely literate farmers could and did evoke profound passions via the written word. Through I Remain Yours: Common Lives in Civil War Letters, English scholar Christopher Hager explores the nature and significance of the millions of letters written during the Civil War. The 1860s were an era of widespread literacy, but many people were only barely literate, which posed great challenges, as they relied on this medium to maintain family relationships. Hager claims the average Civil War soldier produced seventy or more letters during his service, vastly outnumbering 1860’s average of five to six ... Read More

  • Pure Heart: The Faith of a Father and Son in the War for a More Perfect
           Union by William F. Quigley Jr (review)
    • Abstract: William Quigley’s Pure Heart is a single book with two separate stories. The first is an examination of the intersection of religion and politics at Christ Church, an Episcopalian parish in Philadelphia, focusing especially on the sermons of its rector, Reverend Benjamin Dorr. The second is a tale of the 121st Pennsylvania Regiment, narrated chiefly through the letters of the minister’s son, William White Dorr, lieutenant and later captain. Both are thoroughly researched and beautifully told. In his prologue, Quigley makes clear that the first story is his primary focus: “My purpose is to explore and explain how Benjamin Dorr managed to keep his church of mostly elite Philadelphia whites intact during and ...

    • Abstract: The American Civil War presents historians with an incredible opportunity to delve into the personal experiences of soldiers and officers through the wealth of letters, diaries, and other written materials accumulated and preserved by a literate society that understood the war as a momentous event in history. These resources allow historians to see the events unfold from the ground up and analyze how Americans of all backgrounds interpreted and experienced the conflict. Many of these collections are held in private hands, or within libraries and historical societies, but published collections are invaluable to historians and students of the war who want to access the writings of these men. This Will Make a Man of ... Read More

  • Prison Pens: Gender, Memory, and Imprisonment in the Writings of Mollie
           Scollay and Wash Nelson, 1863–1866 ed. by Timothy J. Williams and Evan
           Kutzler (review)
    • Abstract: Editors Timothy J. Williams and Evan Kutzler offer a much-needed new perspective on the study of Civil War prisoners in Prison Pens: Gender, Memory, and Imprisonment in the Writings of Mollie Scollay and Wash Nelson, 1863–1866. Williams and Kutzler disregard the age-old debates about which Civil War prison was the worst or who was to blame for the atrocious conditions and high mortality rate. Instead, using the Civil War letters of a Confederate prisoner and his sweetheart, they challenge historians to consider the roles class, culture, gender, and prison narratives played in perpetuating the Lost Cause mythology.Prison Pens is chronologically organized around fifty-five previously unpublished letters between ...

  • The Army of the Potomac in the Overland and Petersburg Campaigns: Union
           Soldiers and Trench Warfare, 1864–1865 by Steven E. Sodergren (review)
    • Abstract: Steven Sodergren provides an intriguing study of the Union Army of the Potomac during the last year of the war. Studies of the 1864–65 campaigns tend to focus on either the Overland or the Petersburg Campaign but not both, which makes this study especially useful for understanding the way the army led by George Meade and Ulysses S. Grant waged war in Virginia. The central thesis is based on the changing nature of combat, set first by the intense marching and fighting of the Overland Campaign and followed by the prolonged siege or Petersburg. A month of “frequent high-intensity field combat followed by an even longer period of low-intensity trench warfare degraded” the army’s “will to fight” and then restored it by ... Read More

  • Fighting Means Killing: Civil War Soldiers and the Nature of Combat by
           Jonathan M. Steplyk (review)
    • Abstract: Civil War soldiers worried a good deal about being targets of enemy fire in battle, but we tend to ignore that at least some of them were also concerned about their roles as killers. Jonathan M. Steplyk deserves credit for bringing this idea to our attention. He is not the first; several other Civil War historians have touched on the topic within the context of books on other subjects. But Steplyk is the first to write a dedicated study of killing in the Civil War. He was inspired by Dave Grossman’s On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning How to Kill in War and Society (New York: Back Bay Books, 2009). Steplyk set out to write a “killogy” of the Civil War. At heart, his book deals with Civil War soldiers and ... Read More

  • Hood’s Texas Brigade: The Soldiers and Families of the Confederacy’s
           Most Celebrated Unit by Susannah J. Ural (review)
    • Abstract: Susannah J. Ural has written an uneven but extremely revealing book on a storied military unit. Her work is uneven because it does not adequately explain why the soldiers of the Texas Brigade initially went off to fight in the Civil War or how they compared to soldiers in other units. Her work is revealing because she convincingly explains why the soldiers of the brigade kept fighting despite an astounding casualty rate and difficult circumstances.The most glaring example of its falling short in explaining initial motivation comes in the author’s discussion of secession and the Marshall Guards, a component of Hood’s Texas Brigade. Ural states that Harrison County, where Marshall was the county seat, “voted against ... Read More

  • Civil War Logistics: A Study of Military Transportation by Earl J. Hess
           (review)
    • Abstract: Earl Hess has again contributed to an impressive corpus of scholarship with yet another important contribution, which now stands as the standard scholarly work on the topic. He not only places his subject matter in a global context but points toward further areas of more detailed research, particularly with regard to understanding logistics at higher levels of resolution as they relate to individual campaigns and smaller units. This is especially true of the Confederacy, which, Hess points out, left behind a less extensive documentary source base for the scholarly study of its logistical infrastructure. For the first time, in one succinct volume, we have the logistical underpinnings of both war efforts and the ... Read More

  • Americans Remember Their Civil War by Barbara A. Gannon (review)
    • Abstract: Recent controversies over displays of the Confederate battle flag and the removal of Confederate statues and street names have demonstrated that the Civil War continues to resonate in contemporary culture wars and racial politics. This concise account of how and why Americans have constructed powerful memories of a brutal conflict that killed hundreds of thousands of combatants helps explain its capacity to stir raw emotions long after it ended.Barbara Gannon begins her assessment by distinguishing between the collective memories of those who experienced the war in some form and the compound historical memories of later generations that had no personal memory of the slaughter. Drawing here on the pioneering French ... Read More

  • Civil War Memories: Contesting the Past in the United States since 1865 by
           Robert J. Cook (review)
    • Abstract: One hundred and fifty years and more after the Civil War, Americans are still fighting it, if only its memory. On preserved battlefields and monument squares, in academic monographs and popular culture, shadows of the Blue and Gray contest the legacy of America’s most deadly conflict. In Civil War Memories: Contesting the Past in the United States since 1865 (2017), Robert J. Cook, professor of American history at the University of Sussex and author of Troubled Commemoration: The American Civil War Centennial, 1961–1965 (2011), sets out to perform a monumental task: survey Civil War memory from the fall of Charleston in 1865 to the Charleston shooting in 2015. To do so, he uses a rich collection of secondary ... Read More

  • Editor’s Overview
    • Abstract: Our March issue offers some unique perspectives that tackle the political and social fabric of the nation consumed by war. Julie Roy Jeffrey explores northern attempts to stamp out “treasonous” speech during the Civil War. The voluminous case files of Levi C. Turner, associate judge advocate for the Army, and Lafayette C. Baker, special provost marshal, two officials at the heart of the effort to suppress subversion, supplemented by newspaper accounts, provide detailed evidence of the workings of the federal program to quell dissent outside the usual procedures of civil law. These efforts reveal uncertainties about the nature and limits of free speech, especially when expressed in the public arena, and the ... Read More
