  • Editor's Overview
    • Abstract: Our June issue kicks off a brand new series, edited by Earl J. Hess, professor of history at Lincoln Memorial University and an esteemed member of our Civil War History editorial board. Our State of the Field series will explore the current status of many subfields within the scholarship of the Civil War Era and provide some tantalizing possibilities for new directions in research and scholarly topics. We begin with Bradley Clampitt's exploration of the Civil War and Reconstruction in Indian Territory. The American Civil War and Reconstruction divided and devastated the population of Indian Territory, a region characterized by a Civil War–era experience dissimilar to that of other border regions and where the ...

  • 2018 Hubbell Prize Awarded
    • Abstract: Adam H. Domby has won the John T. Hubbell Prize for the best article published in Civil War History during 2017. His study, "Captives of Memory: Contested Legacy of Race at Andersonville National Historic Site," Civil War History (September 2017), was selected by the journal's editorial advisory board. The prize earns the recipient a $1,000 award from The Kent State University Press.His article examines competing memories of Andersonville Prison from 1865 to the present by tracing the role of race and racial conflict in shaping how Andersonville has been remembered. White southerners' postwar attempts to reinterpret and erase the site's divisive legacy met with resistance, not only from former white prisoners but ... Read More

  • In the Midst of Fire and Blood: Union Soldiers, Unionist Women, Military
           Policy, and Intimate Space during the American Civil War
    • Abstract: Eight years after the war, Katherine Couse, the thirty-four-year-old daughter of northern immigrants, could still remember the campfires. During the week that Union soldiers stayed on her family's prosperous farm, the night was "brilliantly illuminated by hundreds of [them] in every direction." The Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse brought three of the five corps of Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's army near the home of these staunch unionists. Their parents dead and their older brothers in New York City, the three young women remained in Virginia to oversee the farm. They welcomed thousands of men to their property, giving up their house and barn to be used as hospitals and allowing the dead to be buried in their lawn. The ... Read More

  • Robert Penn Warren, Wendell Berry, and the Dark Side of Civil War History
    • Abstract: Wendell Berry is descended from slaveholders, a fact he admits freely in The Hidden Wound, his moving 1970 essay on the legacy of slavery and race relations in the United States. Berry writes that his great-grandfather, though a slaveholder, "was evidently a rather mild and gentle man by nature." During the Civil War, John Johnson Berry lived on a small farm in Kentucky that seemed an altogether idyllic place. Unlike the Big Houses and plantations of the Deep South, the farm needed the labor of only a few slave hands and was small enough "where domestic violence would have been very noticeable and disruptive." But John Johnson Berry had inherited a problem. He owned a slave who, according to family tradition, "was ... Read More

  • Self-Evident Truths: Contesting Equal Rights from the Revolution to the
           Civil War by Richard D. Brown (review)
    • Abstract: For all of us who thought we understood the precept that "all men are created equal," Richard Brown's exhaustive study proves us wrong. The Declaration of Independence's inspiring words sound definitive, but, as Brown points out, they were meant to be aspirational rather than a paean to accomplishment. Besides, was the expression inclusive' At a time when class, race, and gender divisions trumped equality, did it really mean all Americans' How did "all men" eventually become all people' In short, we can only wish Jefferson and his generation had explained what they meant—even if they meant what they said. This, according to Brown, is the point, and one that is often overlooked: colonial convictions about liberty ... Read More

  • The Slaveholding Crisis: Fear of Insurrection and the Coming of the Civil
           War by Carl Lawrence Paulus (review)
    • Abstract: With a vivid narrative, Carl Lawrence Paulus ably describes how fear consumed the American South on the eve of the Civil War. The horror that induced manic frenzy among southerners, primarily elites, was the concern that a slave rebellion was imminent. In The Slaveholding Crisis: Fear and of Insurrection and the Coming of the Civil War, Paulus examines the often-studied role that fear had in motivating southern secessionists. The fear of revolt, heavily intensified because of the 1791 Haitian Revolution, remained prevalent in the minds of pro-slavery advocates. Weaving together the themes of fear and the Haitian Revolution, Paulus contends that this anxiety reinforced a southern version of American exceptionalism ... Read More

  • 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

  • Apostle of Union: A Political Biography of Edward Everett by Matthew Mason
           (review)
    • Abstract: Good biographies do more than simply bring a historical figure's story to life; the best accounts shed light on the complex moment in which that actor lived. From this perspective, Matthew Mason's "political" biography of Massachusetts conservative Edward Everett is an exceptional contribution to the history of the Civil War era. In ten tightly argued chapters, Mason demonstrates that Everett's political career was defined by an overwhelming commitment to the American Union above all else, disrupting the standard narrative of a sectional politics defined solely by northern or southern interests. Everett sought (sometimes successfully) to promote a vision of the Union based in "nationalism, law and order, and ... Read More

  • Wendell Phillips: Social Justice and the Power of the Past ed. by A. J.
           Aiséirithe and Donald Yacovone (review)
    • Abstract: Studies of antebellum reform often provide an incomplete picture of the efforts of figures such as Wendell Phillips, who became a prominent reformer in the prewar period and continued to agitate in the postwar era. In outlining the continuities and divergences between his antislavery work and his later involvement in the labor movement, women's rights, and Indian reform, the essays in this volume present a more complete image of Phillips, his contexts, and even his afterlives.In his elegant lead essay, James Brewer Stewart describes Phillips's unique reverence for tradition as a crucial component to his success as one of the period's greatest orators. Stewart demonstrates how Phillips effectively appealed to the ... Read More

  • For Their Own Cause: The 27th United States Colored Troops by Kelly D.
           Mezurek (review)
    • Abstract: By the war's end, 178,975 African Americans, constituting roughly one-twelfth of all the soldiers who fought for the United States, had filled 145 infantry regiments, seven cavalry units, thirteen artillery groups, and one engineering battalion. An astonishing 74 percent of northern black men of military age enlisted to fight for a nation that denied them citizenship. Despite this, the black soldiers who donned blue have been curiously understudied. Classic studies by Benjamin Quarles and Dudley Taylor Cornish are now more than half a century old, while important recent studies by Joseph Glatthaar and John David Smith examine black soldiers within the context of their relationship with white officers or their ...

  • Driven from Home: North Carolina's Civil War Refugee Crisis by David
           Silkenat (review)
    • Abstract: Contemporary events often illuminate historiographical weaknesses. The civil rights movement revealed academia's failure to chronicle the black experience, various culture wars shined the light on numerous understudied groups, and guerilla warfare studies experienced a surge in the wake of Vietnam and again during the War on Terror. It is not by accident that David Silkenat's Driven from Home is published amid numerous global refugee crises. Arguing that the experiences of Civil War refugees reshape how historians conceptualize the southern home front, slaves' transition to freedom, and the false binary of home front and battlefield, Silkenat chronicles the refugee experiences of four groups: slaves, white ...

  • Reconstruction in Alabama: From Civil War to Redemption in the Cotton
           South by Michael W. Fitzgerald (review)
    • Abstract: In 1869, Nathan Bedford Forrest ventured to Alabama to promote a new railroad venture. Because his road's future depended on county referenda in the state's black-majority plantation belt, the Klan figurehead found himself in the awkward position of soliciting freedpeople for their support. He asked prominent African American politicians to publically champion his road; he told black workers he would compensate them with land; and, when racial purists in the Democratic press attacked him, he defended himself in a Republican paper. In other words, when it suited him, Forrest compromised his white supremacist credentials in order to advance his business interests.This surprising vignette encapsulates Michael W. ... Read More

  • The Retreats of Reconstruction: Race, Leisure, and the Politics of
           Segregation at the New Jersey Shore, 1865–1920 by David Goldberg
           (review)
    • Abstract: David Goldberg's The Retreats from Reconstruction: Race, Leisure, and the Politics of Segregation at the New Jersey Shore, 1865–1920 continues the historiographical trend that expands our understanding of Reconstruction and the Civil War's consequences beyond the plantation South. In this case, Goldberg examines the politics of race and segregation in the resort communities of Asbury Park and Atlantic City, New Jersey. He argues that over the last decade of the nineteenth century and first decades of the twentieth century, consumption and consumer freedom replaced the free labor political economy of the Civil War era at the Jersey shore. Subsequent clashes between working-class African Americans, middle-class white ... Read More

  • Hopes and Expectations: The Origins of the Black Middle Class in Hartford
           by Barbara J. Beeching (review)
    • Abstract: Hopes and Expectations is a compelling microhistory of the black experience in America explored through the travails and triumphs of the Primus Family—descendants of Gad Asher, who was sold into slavery before reclaiming his freedom after serving in the American Revolutionary War.Barbara Beeching's monograph narrates the experiences of an emergent black middle class and the immediate family of Holdridge Primus—the grandson of Asher—who migrated from North Branford to Hartford, Connecticut, around 1830. Though just thirty miles separated the town and city, they were marked by significant differences in demographic composition and economic opportunity. The Primus family members were among few African Americans in the ... Read More

  • Reconsidering Roots: Race, Politics, and Memory ed. by Erica L. Ball and
           Kellie Carter Jackson (review)
    • Abstract: In January 1977, ABC aired a television miniseries based on Alex Haley's book Roots: The Saga of an American Family. For eight consecutive nights, more than 130 million Americans tuned in to follow the life of Kunta Kinte, beginning in his West African village, continuing with the Middle Passage, and through his and his descendants' enslavement. The show refuted racist stereotypes about enslaved people; they were not happy or content, they were brutalized and yet they resisted and formed families. Given the critical acclaim and impact on popular culture, one would expect Roots to be regularly analyzed in academia. Yet, as editors Erica L. Ball and Kellie Carter Jackson explain, the miniseries and book have mostly ... Read More

  • The Civil War and Reconstruction in Indian Territory: Historiography and
           Prospects for New Directions in Research
    • Abstract: During the closing scenes of the Civil War, the authors of the Camp Napoleon Compact, an extraordinary document, concluded that "an Indian shall not spill an Indian's blood" and promised, "The tomahawk shall be forever buried. The scalping knife shall be forever broken." Delegates pledged peace between Plains tribes and Confederate-allied Indians, while the compact lamented the decline of Native populations and called for a united front among all Indians to protect against common enemies. Those powerful sentiments resulted from a diplomatic conference that took place May 25–27 at a traditional Native American meeting place near the Washita River in Indian Territory. Confederate-allied Indians, Plains Indians, and ... Read More
