  • Editor's Overview
    • Abstract: Our September issue continues our state of the field series, with an exploration of how the internet is affecting the study of the American Civil War. Earl J. Hess assesses its impact in six categories based on not only on research but two surveys conducted with Civil War scholars and an additional survey conducted with the staff of archival institutions. Its findings are as follows: First, the web has made an enormous amount of published primary material available to historians. Second, staff members of archival institutions have encountered many limitations in their efforts to scan and place large amounts of unpublished primary material on the internet. Third, there is no evidence that the internet has enhanced ... Read More

  • The Internet and Civil War Studies
    • Abstract: Even though it may seem as if the internet has always been a feature of our lives, it actually is no more than a quarter century old. That is enough time for it to have had an important impact on the field of Civil War studies, and yet no one has pondered that impact, assessed its importance on how we currently work, or predicted where this information superhighway could take us in the next quarter century.This essay is a first step toward assessing the internet's effect on Civil War studies. I see six broad categories associated with the World Wide Web that are relevant to Civil War scholarship. What follows is a brief summary of findings and conclusions within each category, with more information on these ... Read More

  • "The Last and Most Precious Memento": Photographic Portraiture and the
           Union Citizen-Soldier
    • Abstract: In January 1863, New York volunteer Alfred Cranston wrote to his sweetheart Lizzie in Brooklyn from a picket post along the Potomac River. In closing, Cranston noted that he had included one of three photographs Lizzie had given him at his departure in 1861. He asked her to treasure it in anticipation of his return. Cranston had carried the image "in all the marches & through all the fights." It was imperative that this visual and tangible relic of his loved one be kept safe so that he could "lay claim to it" on his return. As Cranston closed the letter, he reemphasized that Lizzie must "take care of it & the original for me."1 While he retained two photographs to carry through his service, he sent the third home ...

  • The History of the Tangier Difficulty: The American Civil War in Morocco
    • Abstract: It was a typically mild February day in 1862 in Tangier, Morocco. James DeLong, US consul to Morocco, kept watch from his perch in the US legation, from which he had a direct view of the Bay of Tangier. On clear days, he could identify every ship that passed through the Strait of Gibraltar and thus entered the Mediterranean Sea. Since his arrival in the fall of 1861, he had been constantly vigilant for signs or reports of Confederate naval operations. On the morning of February 19, word arrived that two Confederate sailors had disembarked in Tangier en route to Cadiz, Spain, aboard a French ship. DeLong leapt into action and summoned a handful of Moroccan guards to assist him. Together they marched through the ... Read More

  • Beyond Freedom: Disrupting the History of Emancipation ed. by David W.
           Blight and Jim Downs (review)
    • Abstract: This compelling, provocative collection of essays opens a window into some of the most pioneering scholarship on slave emancipation. Emerging out of a 2011 conference organized by the editors as well as historian Greg Downs, the volume brings together eleven essays by a range of scholars who consider different aspects of emancipation and also challenge some of the dominant lines of argument in this field. Some pieces follow a "traditional" essay format: they investigate a specific question regarding slave emancipation and draw on historical evidence to solidify the argument. Many are "think pieces," meditating on issues of violence, suffering, and the role of the historian in contemplating these topics. The ... Read More

  • The Loyal Republic: Traitors, Slaves, and the Remaking of Citizenship in
           Civil War America by Erik Mathisen (review)
    • Abstract: Among its many other transformational effects, the Civil War exploded the agreed-on understandings of citizenship that had guided the nation from its founding. But secession did much more than nullify the principle of federalism. On both sides of the contest, central government officials presumed to exercise a direct relationship with citizens of the states that would have been unthinkable before Fort Sumter. In the process, prewar assumptions and practices were turned upside down or discarded, often to be replaced by entirely new ones. Erik Mathisen explores this transformation through the dual prisms of loyalty and military service, with a broad focus on the two warring nations and a narrow focus on ... Read More

           the Atlantic World by Kay Wright Lewis (review)
    • Abstract: Kay Wright Lewis's goal is to correct past accounts of slavery and its aftermath that have inadequately acknowledged the fear and trauma created by the racialized violence African Americans experienced. In A Curse upon the Nation: Race, Freedom, and Extermination in America and the Atlantic World, Lewis claims that "extermination was part of a racialized ideology used to sustain" slavery (2). For African Americans, the memories of that violence in the antebellum South and in the Jim Crow society that followed "remained significant into the Civil Rights era" (2). Whites in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Lewis argues, believed that emancipation and black equality would lead to a race war and the extinction ... Read More

  • American Sectionalism in the British Mind: 1832–1863 by Peter
           O'Connor (review)
    • Abstract: Peter O'Connor contributes to the literature on how the British viewed the American Civil War by expanding the examination chronologically, situating British wartime views in earlier discussions of American sectionalism that date back to the 1830s. Other scholarly treatments of British opinion on the war primarily limit themselves to discussion of reactions of the 1860s, but O'Connor's analysis of British intellectual commentary on American sectionalism, political policy, and regional culture demonstrates the way antebellum views of the United States helped set the stage for the early ambivalent British reactions to the Civil War. O'Connor points out that only after Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation did many ... Read More

  • The Civil War Dead and American Modernity by Ian Finseth (review)
    • Abstract: Ian Finseth's The Civil War Dead and American Modernity is an apt academic complement to George Saunders's Lincoln in the Bardo (2017). The artfully constructed monograph analyzes the relationship of the Civil War dead to four "epistemic predicaments" fundamental to an American modernity that emerged in the wake of the war (21). The first chapter explores the increased sense of the mediated character of all experience, "the loss of a genuineness and authenticity in our relationship to the world," by examining journal entries, letters, and memoirs that describe direct personal encounters with Civil War corpses (75). The second chapter addresses the growing dominance of the image as medium of information through ... Read More

  • Slaughter at the Chapel: The Battle of Ezra Church, 1864 by Gary
           Ecelbarger, and: The Battle of Peach Tree Creek: Hood's First Effort to
           Save Atlanta by Earl J. Hess (review)
    • Abstract: Comparative reviews provide a unique challenge for the reviewer—in addition to discovering similarities in coverage and contrasting differences in approach, style, and content, the reviewer can find it difficult to avoid developing a preference for one work over the other and then using the review to justify that opinion. While Gary Ecelbarger's Slaughter at the Chapel and Earl Hess's The Battle of Peach Tree Creek continue both authors' investigations into the pivotal Atlanta campaign of 1864, providing detailed, traditional accounts of Confederate general John Bell Hood's series of wasteful, attritional assaults in the last weeks July 1864, which eventually cost the Confederacy control of the city, there are ...

  • Andrew Jackson Donelson: Jacksonian and Unionist by Richard Douglas Spence
           (review)
    • Abstract: Occasionally, individuals working in the shadows are the unsung drivers of history. Andrew Jackson Donelson is a fine biography of one of the unsung figures of the Jackson era. Richard Douglas Spence, a plant physiologist, has written a thoroughly researched, and updated biography of Andrew Jackson Donelson, the nephew and ward of President Andrew Jackson. Donelson's diverse career as a presidential advisor, diplomat, and politician placed him in the center of the critical events of the Jackson era. Spence argues that Donelson worked tirelessly to promote Jackson's vision of democracy and Union, while seeking to bridge the divisions of partisan and regional tensions that threatened to divide the country. Donelson's ... Read More

  • Two against Lincoln: Reverdy Johnson and Horatio Seymour, Champions of the
           Loyal Opposition by William C. Harris (review)
    • Abstract: In Two against Lincoln: Reverdy Johnson and Horatio Seymour, Champions of the Loyal Opposition, William C. Harris illustrates the ways a US senator and a wartime governor challenged Republican policies during and after the Civil War. Harris's double political biography focuses on these men's public lives and is a welcome addition to recent works that have highlighted the roles of those who opposed the most extreme positions on both sides of the Civil War. The first section of the book focuses on Johnson's lengthy public service career, and the second concentrates on Seymour's wartime and Reconstruction era experiences.Reverdy Johnson, a former Whig from Maryland, initially supported Lincoln's suspension of the writ ...
