  • Slavery, Capitalism, and the Interpretations of the Antebellum United
           States: The Problem of Definition
    • Abstract: In the space of three years, from 2013 to 2016, a flurry of books crowded the reading lists of historians of pre–Civil War America, all of which emphasized the ties between Southern slavery, capitalism, and modern economic development: Walter Johnson, River of Dark Dreams, Edward Baptist, The Half Has Never Been Told, Sven Beckert, Empire of Cotton, Calvin Schermerhorn, The Business of Slavery and the Rise of American Capitalism, 1815–1860, and Sven Beckert and Seth Rockman, eds., Slavery's Capitalism. Besides insisting that the rise of Western wealth was rooted in the enslavement of Africans who were brutally treated and, in the nineteenth-century American case, forced into mass migration to supply cotton to the ...

  • "A General Concurrence in the Propriety of the Repeal": Male Friendship,
           Party, and Section in the Kansas-Nebraska Bill
    • Abstract: On January 22, 1854, a Sunday, a group of Democratic politicians secretly met at the White House to discuss the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, as part of the organization of Nebraska Territory. The assemblage featured many of the leading men of the Democratic Party, including the two chief principals of the proposed repeal, Stephen A. Douglas of Illinois, chairman of the Senate Committee on Territories, and David Atchison of Missouri, Senate president pro tempore. Also present at the meeting were the two senators from Virginia and the ideological heirs to the states' rights philosophy of John C. Calhoun—Robert M. T. Hunter, the chairman of the Finance Committee, and James M. Mason, the chairman of the Foreign ... Read More

  • A War of Words: The Rhetorical Leadership of Jefferson Davis by R. Jarrod
           Atchison (review)
    • Abstract: R. Jarrod Atchison's slim monograph, A War of Words: The Rhetorical Leadership of Jefferson Davis, attempts to show how Davis, as president of the Confederacy, was "shortsighted," and "settled for short-term successes at the price of creating more serious rhetorical problems … in the long run" (1). A communications professor, Atchison argues that Davis precipitated the erosion of Confederate nationalism by repeatedly deploying rhetoric that he later contradicted. In one such revealing example of incongruity, Davis exuberantly defended slavery in his response to the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 but a year and a half later supported conditional emancipation in order to augment the Confederate army.In five ...

  • A Kingdom Divided: Evangelicals, Loyalty, and Sectionalism in the Civil
           War Era by April E. Holm (review)
    • Abstract: In A Kingdom Divided: Evangelicals, Loyalty, and Sectionalism in the Civil War Era, April Holm offers a new twist on old-fashioned institutional church history. With her sensibilities as a twenty-first-century political historian fully on display, Holm tells the story of members and leaders within three distinct faith traditions—Baptists, Methodists, and Presbyterians—as they shaped and were shaped by the politics of slavery in the then-western or "border" (between slavery and freedom) region of the United States (7). Beginning her study at "the tail end of the Second Great Awakening" in the early 1830s, the author chronicles the divisions and attempted reunions that characterized mainstream evangelicalism in ...

  • Fighting Irish in the American Civil War and the Invasion of Mexico:
           Essays ed. by Arthur H. Mitchell (review)
    • Abstract: As its seemingly straightforward title suggests, this edited collection of essays focuses on the Irish who fought during the great mid-nineteenth-century wars that convulsed a continent. The "fighting" here takes on a variety of forms, from trading volleys on the front lines to marching in partisan ranks against nativist political candidates, violently defending the economic high ground from perceived competitors, and cutting through bureaucracy to secure postwar service pensions. Essayists employ equally expansive definitions of Irish, meaning that in the end, this volume's subject matter proves far less straightforward than it initially appears.Although the book's title gives equal billing to the Mexican-American ...

  • The Stormy Present: Conservatism and the Problem of Slavery in Northern
           Politics, 1846–1865 by Adam I. P. Smith (review)
    • Abstract: When exploring the sectional crisis and the torturous path to war, historical treatments of politics in the Civil War–era North often array free-state conservatives against antislavery radicals. In these accounts, Northern conservatives are normally portrayed as either unconcerned by the problem of slavery or openly sympathetic to the South's proslavery agenda. In The Stormy Present: Conservatism and the Problem of Slavery in Northern Politics, 1846–1865, Adam I. P. Smith turns this binary on its head to explain how by the late 1850s the vast majority of Northerners had arrived at the conclusion that slavery threatened white liberty and, once the Civil War commenced, accepted the abolition of slavery as a ...

  • Emory Upton: Misunderstood Reformer by David J. Fitzpatrick (review)
    • Abstract: This is the first full scholarly biography of Emory Upton, the US Army's leading intellectual in the immediate post–Civil War period, since the 1960s. David Fitzpatrick has been working on Upton for nearly three decades; he intervenes accurately and decisively in some of the most crucial debates in American military history.Emory Upton has many specific strengths: its attention to Upton's personal life; his restlessness and ambition; and the details of his time at West Point; his international trips; and the controversies over his writings, particularly his tactical manuals, which were perhaps the most advanced of the day. Although the volume's focus is on Upton the professional reformer, two chapters examine Upton ... Read More

  • Frederick Douglass: America's Prophet by D. H. Dilbeck (review)
    • Abstract: With the 2018 publication of D. H. Dilbeck's Frederick Douglass: America's Prophet and David W. Blight's Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom, the two hundredth anniversary year of Douglass's birth has taken on a prophetic cast. For Dilbeck, Douglass is best understood as a Christian writer and activist who "cherished the words of the prophet Isaiah and the gospel of Jesus Christ" (3). Dilbeck develops his argument by emphasizing the importance of Christianity to Douglass's autobiographies and speeches. As a result, there is much here that is familiar for those who know Douglass's writings. Rather than considering the autobiographies as artfully crafted works that may not always represent how Douglass felt at the ... Read More

  • The Price for Their Pound of Flesh: The Value of the Enslaved, from Womb
           to Grace, in the Building of a Nation by Daina Ramey Berry (review)
    • Abstract: Among the countless horrors and injustices of slavery, surely one of the most abject for the soul of enslaved people was the knowledge of their bodies' monetary values. This information followed them for their entire lives under bondage, the price moving up and down in tandem with age, health, and appearance. It dictated their daily demands, the formation of their relationships, and the cohesion of their families. As Daina Ramey Berry vividly demonstrates in her gripping new book, however, valuations were not limited to life itself. For enslaved individuals, their price tags preceded birth and remained attached even after death. Through these pricings, Americans waged a brutal battle, in both real and spiritual ... Read More

  • Denmark Vesey's Garden: Slavery and Memory in the Cradle of the
           Confederacy by Ethan J. Kytle and Blain Roberts (review)
    • Abstract: "Telling the whole story can make for an uncomfortable experience," write Ethan J. Kytle and Blain Roberts in Denmark Vesey's Garden, their remarkable new book on how Americans remember slavery (329). Those who prefer their history "whitewashed" to obscure slavery's brutality and minimize the institution's role in the Civil War will find this book uncomfortable, indeed.A husband-and-wife team with doctorates from the University of North Carolina, Kytle and Roberts teach at California State University, Fresno, and contributed regularly to the New York Times's Disunion series on the Civil War. This book grew from their experiences living for two years in Charleston, where they were appalled by the unwillingness of ... Read More

  • Capital and Convict: Race, Region, and Punishment in Post–Civil War
           America by Henry Kamerling (review)
    • Abstract: In 1866, South Carolina governor James Orr argued for overhauling the state's penal system. With those held therein "exempt from all labor," he claimed, they remained "vicious, depraved non-producers" (28). While Orr complained specifically about the treatment of freedmen newly under the state's authority, his sentiments encapsulated national theories regarding the intersection of incarceration, work, and character. In Capital and Convict, a comparative study of the penal systems South Carolina and Illinois developed between 1865 and 1886, Henry Kamerling probes the nexus between understandings of convicts' depravity, labor's reformative power, and capitalism's emerging hegemony. Rather than producing fundamentally ... Read More

  • Midnight in America: Darkness, Sleep, and Dreams during the Civil War by
           Jonathan W. White (review)
    • Abstract: Arguing that scholars have overlooked the importance of sleep and dreams in their study of the Civil War's effect on ordinary Americans, Jonathan W. White offers an original examination of Civil War Americans' daily and nightly experiences. White contends that dream reports provide unique insight into Civil War America that no other primary source can—dreams, according to White, "can help us see what they saw, feel what they felt, and hear what they heard" (xiii). By examining hundreds of unpublished and published diaries, letters, and memoirs, White argues that both Northerners and Southerners sought to make sense of the changing world around them by recording and sharing their dreams.For White, analysis of sleep ...

  • Editor's Overview
    • Abstract: Our June issue returns to our state of the field series and brings us a unique twist on the passage of the Kansas-Nebraska Act. James L. Huston explores a recent hot topic in historical scholarship of the antebellum period: the roles of slavery and capitalism. The recent flurry of scholarly works on slavery has concluded that slavery was "not only a capitalist endeavor but virtually the starting point of capitalism." Huston is unconvinced of this, particularly since scholars have failed to provide meaningful definitions for the terminology they seek to describe. His article explores how definitions of capitalism as tied to slavery have evolved over time, and he offers some recommendations for where the field can go ... Read More
