  • Editor's Overview
    • Abstract: Our first issue for 2018 explores new directions in the medical history of the Civil War. Zachery Fry examines the Army of the Potomac after the Seven Days' battles in July 1862. The soldiers faced poor health and even poorer spirits. For six weeks, soldiers suffered in diseased swamps and meadows on the James River, wondering aloud what their sacrifices had accomplished for the Union struggle. Politically aware officers argued over who was to blame for the hardship, Republicans castigating McClellan and Democrats calling out the administration. Embittered and ill-supplied enlisted men, many just beginning to understand the war's policy dimensions, complained of conservative officers protecting southern property ... Read More

  • McClellan's Epidemic: Disease and Discord at Harrison's Landing,
           July–August 1862
    • Abstract: As he sat down to write a letter on July 20, 1862, Brig. Gen. David B. Birney had recently survived the hardest week of his Civil War experience to date. After lingering in the Chickahominy swamps and fighting to a standstill in the Seven Days' battles, the Army of the Potomac under Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan retired to a new position nestled in the humid marshes and meadows along the James River southeast of Richmond. There, the battered and traumatized army faced a new threat—rampant diseases that exacted an unprecedented toll on the troops. Birney summarized the army's plight when he wrote to a friend, "Malaria has decimated our troops. We have lost more by fatigue [and] exposure … than we would have in ... Read More

  • More Than Paper and Ink: Confederate Medical Literature and the Making of
           the Confederate Army Medical Corps
    • Abstract: When the Confederate States Medical and Surgical Journal first appeared, in January 1864, it flourished. Despite the challenges of war, shortages of materials, and scarcity of labor, the Journal survived its first year of publication and lived to see 1865. Preparing to pen his first editorial of the new year, James B. McCaw marveled that "the circulation of the Journal … surpassed any reasonable expectation" and encouraged his fellow "physicians of the South" to continue their contributions. "If the Journal fails" he warned, "the fault shall be laid to the door of the Southern profession, who refused to … shew themselves true lovers of their calling."1 To McCaw and other physicians living in the Confederate States ...

  • The Birth of a Nation: A Roundtable
    • Abstract: Nate Parker's The Birth of a Nation (2016) is the second major motion picture focusing on slavery to be released since 2013 and part of the growing genre of films that have shifted the popular narrative of slavery, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. While historians of the nineteenth century have long understood the Lost Cause's problematic nature in defining the narrative of slavery and the Civil War era, popular history, especially that presented through the medium of film, has been slower to tackle this subject. Through the first half of the twentieth century, Hollywood films tended to glorify the war, and the realities of chattel slavery—the driving force behind secession—were downplayed. The miniseries Roots ... Read More

  • The Rivers Ran Backward: The Civil War and the Remaking of the American
           Middle Border by Christopher Phillips (review)
    • Abstract: Mention border areas in nineteenth-century America, and western scholars might cite the borderlands field that focuses mainly on old Spanish colonies that now comprise much of the Sun Belt. Others will point to the border states in the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln's statement on emancipation that he wanted God on his side but needed Kentucky. Identifying western border states seemed easy: Kentucky and Missouri, slave states that remained in the Union. But Christopher Phillips's remarkable new book should make all who study the nineteenth century think differently and deeply about the Civil War's border regions and perhaps borderlands history.The Rivers Ran Backward focuses on those traditional border states, and ...

  • Bushwhackers: Guerrilla Warfare, Manhood, and the Household in Civil War
           Missouri by Joseph M. Beilein Jr (review)
    • Abstract: Just as Confederate guerrillas proved a mysterious and elusive foe for their Union pursuers, so too have they long eluded historians. This is changing. An explosion of scholarly work on guerrilla warfare in the past quarter century has brought guerrillas and their war out of the margins of the Civil War narrative. Yet, while their war is better understood than ever before, the fighters attached to the moniker remain in the shadows. Joseph M. Beilein Jr's Bushwhackers provides an intriguing and provocative lens through which modern scholars might begin to get a better view of these men and their motivations. Beilein uses Missouri as his laboratory to explore the nexus between the culture of masculinity, calculated ... Read More

           Gunslingers in the American West by Matthew Christopher Hulbert (review)
    • Abstract: Over the past few years, Matthew C. Hulbert has established himself as a scholar of the Middle Period by producing works that look at the convergence of two subjects that have become ubiquitous in the field of Civil War studies. The first is irregular warfare, which a decade or so of scholarship by the likes of Clay Mount-castle, Thomas D. Mays, Robert Mackey and, especially, Daniel E. Sutherland has established was a much more extensive and important aspect of the conflict than historians had previously appreciated. One manifestation of this is a rapidly growing body of scholarship on the war in Missouri and along the state's border with Kansas, where with the conventional war effectively settled by early 1862 ...

  • A More Civil War: How the Union Waged a Just War by D. H. Dilbeck (review)
    • Abstract: In Western society, prominent thinkers have frequently raised questions about the morality of warfare. How can self-proclaimed Christian societies send armies to maim and butcher other men' Is killing and destruction acceptable in a war fought for a sacred cause' Is it really possible to wage war justly' In the case of the American Civil War, which killed nearly 750,000 soldiers and caused incredible destruction throughout the South, it would be natural for one to dismiss any such notions of a "just" war. However, D. H. Dilbeck, assistant professor of history at Oklahoma Baptist University, believes the Civil War much more complicated than that.In A More Civil War: How the Union Waged a Just War, Dilbeck attempts ...

  • Slavery on the Periphery: The Kansas Missouri Border in the Antebellum and
           Civil War Eras by Kristen Epps (review)
    • Abstract: In Slavery on the Periphery, Kristen Epps examines the institution of slavery in a place where it has often been overlooked—the western frontier between Kansas and Missouri. Slavery as an abstract idea was obviously very important to the region—as the struggle over whether Kansas would be a slave state made abundantly clear—but few studies have examined the experiences of the enslaved people who actually lived in this region. While their number was not large, Epps makes the case that enslaved people played a significant role in the settlement of the region.In her effort to recapture the day-to-day lives of enslaved people in the Kansas–Missouri border region, Epps turns to the techniques of microhistory. This is a ... Read More

  • The Risen Phoenix: Black Politics in the Post–Civil War South by
           Luis-Alejandro Dinnella-Borrego (review)
    • Abstract: Luis-Alejandro Dinnella-Borrego has returned attention to a somewhat neglected topic of postwar African American politics. Against the historiographical trend now a few decades strong of exploring grassroots organizations and activism, Dinnella-Borrego's The Risen Phoenix: Black Politics in the Post–Civil War South focuses on six black congressmen and their congressional records. In seven chronologically arranged chapters, the book charts how these congressmen shifted their tactics and rhetoric as the prospects of civil rights and interracial democracy waxed and waned between roughly 1865 and 1900. Throughout, Dinnella-Borrego argues that, despite the holdover of Dunningesque interpretations of African American ... Read More

  • The Politics of Black Citizenship: Free African Americans in the
           Mid-Atlantic Borderland, 1817–1863 by Andrew K. Diemer (review)
    • Abstract: Andrew Diemer delves into the middle of an ongoing historical debate about the meaning of the border between slavery and freedom in the years before the Civil War. For the last decade, many historians have recast the Mason-Dixon Line as a fluid borderland instead of freedom's definitive boundary. Nineteenth-century Americans certainly understood this fluidity as its permeability excited slavecatchers, kidnapped slaves, white abolitionists, and anti-abolitionists, creating much sectional tension. Diemer breaks new ground in this area by examining how free blacks used this permeability to their advantage in advocating for their own citizenship rights in a system that continually pushed them to the margins of the body ...

  • Too Great a Burden to Bear: The Struggle and Failure of the Freedmen's
           Bureau in Texas by Christopher Bean (review)
    • Abstract: In a recent examination of the Civil War's ambiguous conclusion, in After Appomattox: Military Occupation and the Ends of War (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2015), Gregory P. Downs writes, "The government could protect freedpeople or it could return to peacetime, but it could not do both" (5). In Too Great a Burden to Bear, Christopher Bean argues that the Freedmen's Bureau sure tried. Through meticulous attention to sub–assistant commissioners in Texas—the men who over-saw the bureau's daily functioning in the field—Bean portrays a well-intentioned, occasionally successful, but ultimately overwhelmed effort to protect the rights of former slaves as the nation transitioned out of slavery and from ...

  • Remembering Reconstruction: Struggles over the Meaning of America's Most
           Turbulent Era eds. by Carol Emberton and Bruce E. Baker (review)
    • Abstract: Americans, influenced by race, region, politics, and time, have developed a problematic, sometimes unmindful, but enduring relationship with Reconstruction. Indeed, even as the nation moves through the era's sesquicentennial years, Reconstruction's memories arguably have a greater influence over a wider stretch of American life than do the more dramatic events of the preceding Civil War years. Scratch the surface of controversies over modern voter identification laws or the removal of a New Orleans monument erected in 1891 to commemorate an earlier street battle, and the lingering impact of Reconstruction, with its contested memories, becomes apparent. It has been so since the 1870s, as the essays in Remembering ... Read More
