  • Early American Disability Studies
    • Abstract: If a scholar of the early Americas wanted to learn more about the understudied topic of disability in the period, she might head to her desk, open her computer, and keyword search disability or disabled in a digital database like Early American Imprints, Early English Books Online, or Eighteenth Century Collections Online. Sure enough, she would find over twenty thousand combined citations, a great number of which point to legal and religious documents that use disability as a metaphor to describe individuals alienated from God or who had somehow lost their legal rights. While she would find documents that refer explicitly to physical or cognitive impairment, those citations would neither be as numerous nor as ... Read More

  • The Governor’s Two Bodies: Polity and Monstrosity in
           Winthrop’s Boston
    • Abstract: Scholars of early New England are surprisingly indifferent to monsters. To a contemporary reader, John Winthrop’s allegations that Mary Dyer and Anne Hutchinson gave birth to monsters are one of the more puzzling aspects of the Antinomian Controversy. Even though this theological and political struggle remains a perennial subject of inquiry for early Americanists, little of this attention has focused on the stories of Dyer’s and Hutchinson’s monstrous births.1 In spite of many disparate scholarly approaches to the Antinomian Controversy, almost without exception this body of scholarship downplays the accounts of monstrous births Massachusetts governor John Winthrop includes in his narratives of the Bay Colony’s ...

  • “Confined unto a Low Chair”: Reading the Particulars of Disability in
           Cotton Mather’s Miracle Narratives
    • Abstract: In his Election Day sermon to the General Assembly of Massachusetts Bay on May 27, 1696, Cotton Mather prophesied the imminent arrival of the kingdom of God: “The Tidings which I bring unto you, are, That there is a REVOLUTION and a REFORMATION at the very Door, which will be vastly more Wonderful, than any of the Deliverances, yet seen by the Church of God” (Things 33−34). The evidence for this vision was drawn in part from scriptural calculation of the promised end of the Roman church, but Mather also saw prelusive glimmers of the millennium in recent wonderful events. Now that the “Antichristian Apostasy” was plainly doomed, he had reason to believe God’s miraculous power was returning to the world: “For there ... Read More

  • “Defective in One of the Principle Parts of Virility”: Impotence,
           Generation, and Defining Disability in Early North America
    • Abstract: In the winter of 1728–29, Anna Maria Miller, a resident of Philadelphia County, entered a petition with the local legislature asking to “be relieved from her unhappy Marriage” to her husband, one George Miller, to whom Anna Maria had been married for about two years. Miller first named George’s “frigidity and incapacity” as her reason for seeking a dissolution of the marriage, on the grounds that he lacked the “ability to perform his Conjugal Duty,” shoring up her claim with her assertion that George was “defective in one of the Principle parts of Virility necessary for Generation.”1 In her petition, Anna Maria requests that her husband be examined by a board of local doctors, in order that they might testify to ...

  • Lunacy and Liberation: Black Crime, Disability, and the Production and
           Eradication of the Early National Enemy
    • Abstract: Insanity is the saddest and most terrible of all diseases,—the most pitiable and helpless of all the states and forms of human helplessness. And yet it is a condition to which all men are liable, and into which any man may at any time fall with or without premonition.In its relation to crime it presents one of the darkest and most mysterious problems of medical and criminal jurisprudence.In 1795, a Massachusetts slave named Pomp confessed to having murdered his owner, Captain Charles Furbush, with an axe while the man lay sleeping in his bed. Pomp’s firsthand account of the murder was published in a broadside, the Dying Confession of Pomp, A Negro Man, Who Was Executed at Ipswich, on the 6th August, 1795, for ... Read More

    • Abstract: In 1792, Thaddeus Beebe, a private in the First Regiment of Connecticut Continental Troops, applied to the District Court of Connecticut for an invalid pension. In 1776, just over one month after the ratification of the Declaration of Independence, the Continental Congress had passed an act entitling soldiers who were disabled in the line of duty to half pay for the duration of their disability (Ford 5: 702–05). Hoping to take advantage of recent legislation that had renewed this act (An Act to Provide for the Settlement), Beebe presented his case before the court. Richard Douglass, the second lieutenant in Beebe’s regiment, testified that “in the year 1777 Beebe was Agreeably to an Order of Congress Inoculated for ... Read More

  • Response: How Do Early Americans with Disabilities Act?
    • Abstract: What is disability? Is it a condition that attaches to a body or a mind, or to a social role or legal category? This question lies at the heart of the field of disability studies as it has emerged in the last thirty years, and it is central to the five essays contained in this special issue as well. In their introduction, Sari Altschuler and Cristobal Silva observe that “the concept of disability was inchoate in early America” (6), and this inchoateness presents both a challenge and an opportunity for scholars of disability in early America. All five of these essays, along with the editors’ introduction, demonstrate the rich and compelling scholarship that can emerge when the analytic frame of disability studies is ... Read More

  • Old Stories, New Networks
    • Abstract: In a book about his 1829 mission to negotiate a treaty for the land of the Winnebago people, Caleb Atwater paused to describe the oratory of Chief Hoowaneka (Little Elk), a leader of the Winnebago delegation and one of Atwater’s main opponents in the negotiations. “His gestures were very graceful,” Atwater wrote, “but, in those parts of his speech, where he felt deeply, what he said, his gesticulation was violent, and his whole soul appeared to be agitated in the highest degree” (qtd. in Gunn 74). Details about the gestures and facial expressions of famous leaders were common in political memoirs of Atwater’s era. Just a few years earlier, Thomas Jefferson had described Andrew Jackson in similar terms, saying ... Read More

  • Exceptionalism, Agency, and the Misunderstood Origins of American Culture
    • Abstract: Under the aegis of American exceptionalism the eighteenth century might as well be dubbed the age of agency. In that narrative of American history the American Revolution has often been cast as the story of the assertion, finally, of human agency. Americans chose not only to separate from the mighty British Empire but to form a new kind of government based on the principle of individual choice and ultimately the premise of self-determination. That these ideals only applied to property-holding white males was an inconvenient (and perhaps temporary?) detail that would be remedied over time (more or less time depending on one’s political inclinations, racial and gender ideologies, or tolerance for change). We can see ... Read More

  • Liberty’s Prisoners: Carceral Culture in Early America by Jen Manion
           (review)
    • Abstract: The foundational histories of the rise of the Anglo-American penal state published in the United States in the 1970s shone a bright spotlight on its techniques of domination and the political and ideological underpinnings of its carceral power. Together, David J. Rothman’s The Discovery of the Asylum: Social Order and Disorder in the New Republic (1971), Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison (1977, trans. Alan Sheridan), and Michael Ignatieff’s A Just Measure of Pain: The Penitentiary in the Industrial Revolution, 1750–1850 (1978) described a revolution in authority in the fifty years either side of 1800 in which the penitentiary displaced the scaffold as the preeminent machinery of ...

  • The Origins of American Religious Nationalism by Sam Haselby (review)
    • Abstract: The Origins of American Religious Nationalism is a frustrating book. Its central argument is important and provocative, but its development is disorganized, obscured by frequent digressions, and compromised by methodological problems. Haselby maintains that in the decades following the Revolution a distinctively American mode of nationalism developed. The defining features of this new American nationalism were populism, antielitism, racism, and religion, represented in their fullness by the presidency of Andrew Jackson. He argues persuasively that Protestant activism played a central role in creating this national identity. In his analysis, religion in the early Republic was not only shaped by political forces, it ... Read More

  • Planters, Merchants, and Slaves: Plantation Societies in British America,
           1650−1820 by Trevor Burnard (review)
    • Abstract: Trevor Burnard’s new book is a response to Russell R. Menard’s challenge to scholars to historicize three things: the development of largescale British colonial sugar, rice, and tobacco plantations; the gang labor system of slavery they generally employed; and the dominance of the planter class in the colonies with such systems. That is, rather than assume an almost natural evolution of small farms into ever-larger colonial staple plantations, historians need to investigate when, how, and why large plantations were brought into existence. Burnard, like Menard, brings to this exploration of the causes and consequences of the plantation system a broad background of research in the archival sources of both the ... Read More

    • Abstract: Juliet Shields’s comprehensively researched study contributes to and extends the “archipelagic” study of late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth-century literature by focusing on writing by and about Scots, Irish, and Welsh immigrants to the American colonies and then to the United States. The book combines detailed attention to relatively canonical works (Charles Brockden Brown’s Wieland [1798] and Edgar Huntly [1799], James Fenimore Cooper’s Last of the Mohicans [1826], Robert Southey’s Madoc [1805]) with brief discussions of numerous novels, stories, and sketches, composed in English and addressing, in one way or another, distinctly nonmetropolitan experiences of belonging or displacement. Recent events in the ... Read More

  • Aiming for Pensacola: Fugitive Slaves on the Atlantic and Southern
           Frontiers by Matthew J. Clavin (review)
    • Abstract: In 1770, a man in his midtwenties ran away from enslavement in the British colony of North Carolina. He found refuge in an Indian town before continuing on to Pensacola, the capital of another British colony, West Florida. On his way, he may have passed a man going the opposite direction who had been born in Angola and was running from Pensacola to Creek Indian country. These two men were hardly alone. As Matthew J. Clavin notes in his excellent new book, for more than a century, Pensacola was “both a launch and a landing for runaway slaves” (1).While the antebellum Underground Railroad has commanded most of the historiography and almost all of the popular memory of escaping slavery, fugitives traveled North ...

    • Abstract: In The Haitian Declaration of Independence: Creation, Context, and Legacy, Julia Gaffield has gathered a diverse collection of essays that both engage with extant historiography on the Haitian Revolution and, crucially, push discussions forward into state making after 1804. Few Atlantic scholars are unaware of the flourishing scholarship on the course and impact of the revolutionary fighting itself, which has become rich and transnational. This scholarship has influenced and transformed other fields in turn, not only provoking a surge in interest in the revolution’s impact on nearby slave societies but also bringing the fighting into comparative and integrated frames with North Atlantic revolutions and independence ...

  • Slavery and the Democratic Conscience: Political Life in Jeffersonian
           America by Padraig Riley (review)
    • Abstract: The study of political history often focuses on the works of larger than life figures. Certainly this has been true of scholarship dealing with American Republicanism: Thomas Jefferson and his ilk loom over any discussion of early US democracy. This makes sense, of course: those “founders” left copious, often beautifully rendered records—official and otherwise—and their writings still form the backbone of American politics. Padraig Riley’s new book, however, joins a growing body of work acknowledging the fact that political systems are not forged solely by powerful men. Covering roughly the period from 1790 through the Missouri Compromise of 1820, Slavery and the Democratic Conscience charts the ascendance of the ... Read More

  • The Citizen Poets of Boston: A Collection of Forgotten Poems, 1789−1820
           ed. by Paul Lewis (review)
    • Abstract: “For whether I’m a dunce or poet, / I feel above prose, or below it” (29), announces the anonymous author of “The Stage Coach: Inscribed to Mira,” the lead poem in The Citizen Poets of Boston: A Collection of Forgotten Poems, 1789−1820, edited by Paul Lewis. In many respects, this couplet—at once humorous and sincere, witty and unassuming—captures the charming ethos of the entire anthology. It reflects a body of early national poetry composed by average Bostonians (hence the title “citizen poets”) without any pretense to poetic accomplishment, even with occasional irreverence toward the genre. Some unforgiving readers may decide that the amateur verse of Citizen Poets is so lowbrow that it indeed falls beneath ... Read More

  • Finding Charity’s Folk: Enslaved and Free Black Women in Maryland by
           Jessica Millward (review)
    • Abstract: At first glance the title, Finding Charity’s Folk, suggests that the monograph will focus on reuniting the loved ones of an enslaved woman, Charity, born in Maryland circa 1759. However, the deeply researched study is more generally about the historical location and position of black women, or “folk,” whose legal savvy and assistance from others helped them navigate from slavery to freedom before the Civil War. Jessica Millward channels the narrative through a prism pointed at Charity Folks, who along with her five children and their children made the transition from slavery to freedom while she acquired real and personal property in Annapolis that did much to secure their freedom and legacy.Finding Charity’s Folk ...

  • The Making of Tocqueville’s America: Law and Association in the Early
           United States by Kevin Butterfield (review)
    • Abstract: The United States is famously a nation of joiners, but how did it get that way? In this intriguing book, Kevin Butterfield of the University of Oklahoma traces the rise of voluntary associations in the early years of the Republic and the changing nature of the associational landscape as the nineteenth century progressed. In a series of short and lively chapters that zoom out to consider organizing efforts across the board and zoom in to analyze the details of particular associations, Butterfield shows that the vibrant world of membership de Tocqueville reported on in the 1830s was not some natural outgrowth of the Revolutionary experience, but the result of four decades of intense debate over the appropriate scope ...

  • Barbaric Culture and Black Critique: Black Antislavery Writers, Religion,
           and the Slaveholding Atlantic by Stefan M. Wheelock (review)
    • Abstract: In the field of early Atlantic studies, Stefan Wheelock identifies a scholarly absence due to a dependency that embraced an “elite, white antislavery version of progress” (x). Rightly so, Wheelock focuses on the “charter generation” of black antislavery intellectuals: Ottobah Cugoano, Olaudah Equiano, James Albert Gronniosaw, David Walker, and Maria Stewart. Despite the recent proliferation of early Black Atlantic studies that engage a polycentric approach to the literature, beyond the usual antislavery notables, this study offers a corrective by privileging solely writers who contributed to American Revolution−era intellectual historiography. Wheelock does not mince his words in trumpeting their heuristic ... Read More

  • The Public Universal Friend: Jemima Wilkinson and Religious Enthusiasm in
           Revolutionary America by Paul B. Moyer (review)
    • Abstract: One of the more intriguing religious phenomena of the American Revolutionary period has to be the Public Universal Friend. He emerged in 1776 when a young Quaker woman, Jemima Wilkinson, fell seriously ill and was on the verge of death. But Wilkinson recovered, and then she claimed she had in fact died and ascended to heaven, and her earthly body had been taken over by a male spirit known as the Public Universal Friend. This entity began a preaching mission, spreading a classic, conservative Quaker massage, gathering converts in and around Wilkinson’s Rhode Island home, and eventually founding a community in western New York that would last nearly one hundred years. This fascinating figure and his community have ... Read More

  • Quakers and Abolition ed. by Brycchan Carey and Geoffrey Plank (review)
    • Abstract: Some of the best-known Quaker abolitionists in literature are to be found in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin (1852). In chapter 13, “The Quaker Settlement,” idealized members of the Society of Friends in Ohio, Rachel and Simeon Halliday, share a meal at the same table with escaped slaves Eliza, Harry, and George Harris, before aiding them in their flight to Canada. Of this memorable moment, Stowe writes, “It was the first time that ever George had sat down on equal terms at any white man’s table; and he sat down, at first, with some constraint, and awkwardness; but they all exhaled and went off like fog, in the genial morning rays of this simple, overflowing kindness” (Boston, 1852 [205]). Stowe partially ... Read More

    • Abstract: This special issue of Early American Literature seeks to continue discussions on the linguistic and geographic resituating of the field through an emphasis on Spanish—as a language, an empire, a spatial conception, and an ideological stand-in for an “America” that is not English. We seek essays on topics from the period of early contact through the Spanish American independence movements, engaging materials from textual, oral, or performance traditions. Essays might explore texts from or about the Spanish-occupied regions of North America that later became incorporated into the United States; perform comparative analyses of authors, works, or literary institutions from across the Americas; examine anglophone ...
