  • The Politics of Continuity and Change in the Long Civil War Era
    • Abstract: Now is the right time to reevaluate our broad approach to politics in the Civil War era, not because the political history of the mid-nineteenth century is stale or failing, but rather because political history of the period is thriving. In fact, Civil War–era political history of the last fifty years is among the most creative and methodologically sophisticated in the discipline; historians have effectively used the tools of social, cultural, economic, and legal history, as well as employed cross-disciplinary ideas from political science, sociology, and psychology to reimagine political participation, organization, and governance in this period. We now know more about politics from the local to the national level ... Read More

  • "City of Refuge": Child Refugees and Soldiers' Orphans in Civil War St.
           Louis
    • Abstract: In the mid-1850s, John Rose and his wife, Melissa, moved from Tennessee to Sugar Loaf Township, Arkansas. Rose purchased land and started a farm that was apparently large enough to support his young family.1 In 1860, the Roses welcomed the last of their six children into the world. Although Arkansas was a slave state, Rose was not a slaveholder, and when Arkansas voted to secede from the United States, he enlisted as a private in the Union army. After he was killed by "Guerrilla Indians," Melissa Rose and her children fled to St. Louis, where she died in a refugee home in March 1865.2 Several of the children, including Winnie, Jesse, Henry, and Leroy ended up in an institution established for the children of Union ...

  • The New Civil War Revisionism, Twenty Years Later: A Roundtable in Honor
           of Edward L. Ayers
    • Abstract: Presented in the December 2011 volume of Civil War History, historian J. David Hacker's groundbreaking research revised one of the least revisable figures in US history—620,000, the number of Civil War dead. Drawing on new data and methods, especially new census data, Hacker projected that war's human toll was closer to 750,000 and perhaps as high as 850,000.1 Not only has this new body count led historians to amend one of the war's most recognizable facts, but it also, in a sense, upped the war's ante. Hacker's estimate speaks to a fundamental human if not historical calculation: what amount of suffering for what amount of good'This question of the Civil War's costs is of particular interest to a body of ...

  • The Calculus of Violence: How Americans Fought the Civil War by Aaron
           Sheehan-Dean (review)
    • Abstract: Historiographically at least, the Civil War seems to grow bloodier every year. Recent explorations of soldier and civilian deaths have pushed the war's combined butcher bill upward toward perhaps a million lives lost, in a divided nation of about 31 million people. Yet as bad as it was, it could have been much worse. As Aaron Sheehan-Dean points out in his introduction to The Calculus of Violence, more than 20 million people died in China's roughly contemporary civil war. In Mexico's long Caste War of the Yucatan, 35 percent of the population lost their lives. The American Civil War was somehow simultaneously catastrophic and more controlled. Explaining that apparent paradox is at the heart of Sheehan-Dean's ... Read More

  • Upon the Fields of Battle: Essays on the Military History of America's
           Civil War ed. by Andrew S. Bledsoe and Andrew Lang (review)
    • Abstract: To paraphrase Mark Twain, rumors of the death of military history have been greatly exaggerated. Over the past few years, at conferences and in other formats, historians have worried about the future of Civil War military history. The creative work this excellent collection gathers and the broader research projects behind the essays should calm fears that the field is in jeopardy. To the contrary, the range and the strength of the work represented here suggest the dynamism among current practitioners and promise more for the future.The essays show the versatility of the military history being practiced today. In some cases, social or economic or environmental history yield new insights about topics typically ... Read More

  • The War for the Common Soldier: How Men Thought, Fought, and Survived in
           Civil War Armies by Peter S. Carmichael (review)
    • Abstract: Peter S. Carmichael's new monograph, The War for the Common Soldier: How Men Thought, Fought, and Survived in Civil War Armies, investigates what happened to ideas and cultural values on the proving ground of war and how soldiers negotiated their deeply held beliefs through the shattering experience that the conflict became for many of them. The book consists of seven chapters whose themes overlap to provide a penetrative look into the mental arena of the Civil War soldier. Through a learned and compassionate close reading of his source material, Carmichael demonstrates how both Confederate and US soldiers developed a distinctive pragmatism of thought and action without ever fully abandoning their 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 the fact 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, inspired by Dave Grossman's On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning How to Kill in War and Society (New York: Bay Back Books, 2009), is the first to write a dedicated study of killing in the Civil War. Steplyk set out to write a "killogy" of the Civil War. At heart, his book deals with Civil War soldiers ... Read More

  • War Stuff: The Struggle for Human and Environmental Resources in the
           American Civil War by Joan E. Cashin (review)
    • Abstract: Since 2000, an increasing number of environmental historians have made the Civil War a center of inquiry. At the same time, Civil War historians have begun to pay closer attention to the nonhuman contexts of their work—although one might argue that weather, terrain, disease, and animals have always featured in military historians' work. In War Stuff, Joan Cashin seeks to enter this ongoing conversation by exploring the attitudes of soldiers, administrators, civilians, and army officials toward both human and nonhuman resources during the Civil War.Cashin argues that the pressures of war toppled antebellum views of the material world, freeing soldiers from prewar mores of rural communalism and the stewardship of ...

  • Crossing the Deadlines: Civil War Prisons Reconsidered ed. by Michael P.
           Gray (review)
    • Abstract: Over the past twenty or so years, the long-neglected topic of Civil War prisons has finally gotten something approaching the scholarly attention it needed. Part of the reason for the relative neglect is that it remains a volatile topic and writing about it requires a particularly thick skin. Another part of the reason is, as Benjamin Cloyd discusses in his fine concluding essay, Civil War prisons just do not fit the era's narrative as it has been written about for well over a century. The death and suffering of so many in each side's pens do not fit the "familiar (and comfortable) narrative ground of decisive battlefield moments" making them difficult to understand (207). As Cloyd further points out, in the ... Read More

  • Penitentiaries, Punishment, and Military Prisons: Familiar Responses to an
           Extraordinary Crisis during the American Civil War by Angela M. Zombek
           (review)
    • Abstract: Angela Zombek's Penitentiaries, Punishment, and Military Prisons is a welcome addition to the growing scholarship on Civil War POWs and prisons. Recent works use Civil War prison historiography as a means to better understand the very souls of the Union and Confederacy, as well as the United States. (See recent works authored and edited by Roger Pickenpaugh, Benjamin G. Cloyd, and Michael P. Gray.) Zombek adds to this body by attempting to understand how these societies treated their imprisoned citizens and enemies before, during, and after the war. Her book demonstrates the continuity of incarceration practices over time, focusing more on antebellum precedents and wartime practicalities than on postbellum ... Read More

  • Our Country: Northern Evangelicals and the Union during the Civil War Era
           by Grant R. Brodrecht (review)
    • Abstract: In recent years numerous works have appeared examining religion during the Civil War era. Grant R. Brodrecht gives us another fine addition in this field that helps better understand the role of evangelical religion in the North. He focuses on the concept of the Union, which for evangelical Protestants "connoted a country formed by the providential hand of God, in addition to the idea that it should remain whole and filled throughout with evangelical Protestantism" (15). This definition suits Brodrecht well in making his argument that evangelicals sought to use the Civil War and Reconstruction to preserve and strengthen their vision of the Union. While not disregarding the role of freedom in the Civil War and ... Read More

  • Houses Divided: Evangelical Schisms and the Crisis of the Union in
           Missouri by Lucas P. Volkman (review)
    • Abstract: Lucas Volkman has produced a richly textured history of Missouri evangelicals—Presbyterians, Baptists, and Methodists—experiencing denominational division and exacerbating sectionalized conflict within the border state from the 1830s through Reconstruction. Appearing as the latest installment in Oxford's Religion in America series, the book is commendable in several respects. By treating the denominational schisms throughout the entire era, Volkman boldly—and truthfully—proclaims that he "breaks new ground" (xiii). Perhaps more notable is his portrayal of how the national disputes played out legally, politically, in churches, through the media, and sometimes violently in the lives of various people—male and female ...

  • Catholics' Lost Cause: South Carolina Catholics and the American South,
           1820–1861 by Adam L. Tate (review)
    • Abstract: By the end of the American Civil War, the Catholic Church's progress in Charleston and South Carolina since the diocese's formation in 1820 was all but destroyed. Thus concludes Adam L. Tate's Lost Cause: South Carolina Catholics and the American South, a work that traces the development, debates, and dense theological discussions the Irish Catholic Church engaged in until the eve of secession. Tate's engaging look at South Carolina Catholics and their antebellum expansions provides an insight into how a minority religious entity integrated into Southern institutions. Within the microcosm of the Diocese of Charleston, every facet of South Carolina's history from the 1820s to 1860s is explored, showing how the ... Read More

  • The Know Nothings in Louisiana by Marius M. Carriere Jr. (review)
    • Abstract: Louisiana nativism often leaves historians scratching their heads. As the nation hurtled toward secession and war, the nativism movement burst onto the electoral scene like a shooting star and fizzled out nearly as fast. Its main vehicle, the American Party, was cloaked in secrecy, its adherents told to answer "I know nothing" when queried about it. It seemed more Illuminati than mainstream political movement, what with its three degrees of membership and speakeasy admission rituals. But by harnessing the period's turbocharged ethno-nationalism, the Know Nothing movement came within a whisker of enshrinement as the nation's second major party. And nowhere else in the Deep South did the American party make deeper ... Read More

  • Editor's Overview
    • Abstract: Our December issue continues our State of the Field series with an exploration of the state of Civil War–era political history. Rachel Shelden argues that the field is as vibrant as ever, producing wide-ranging and methodologically fresh interpretations of various aspects of the period. In particular, some of the best new work investigates new questions about the contours of slavery, freedom, and citizenship; the role of the State; and military, transnational, and economic policy concerns. At the same time, most of this work tends to explore either pre- or postwar problems rather than the full sweep of the era. In part, we have been trapped by old historiographical divides that center on revisionism. Given this ... Read More
