  • Scientific Instructions and Native American Linguistics in the Imperial
           United States: The Department of War's 1826 Vocabulary
    • Abstract: In May 1826, the United States' Department of War produced 800 copies of a set of instructions and questions intended "to collect and preserve such information as may be obtained concerning the Indian languages." The instructions asked Indian agents and missionaries to provide translations for 600 words and 113 short sentences, conjugate a few verbs, and answer twelve "Grammatical Queries." Although the Department of War funded and printed this seven-page document and sent it out under the name of Secretary of War James Barbour, the impetus and ideas behind the project came from a small group of philologists keen on developing what they called the "Comparative Science of languages" in the United States.1Since the ...

  • "The Focus of the Wills of Converging Millions": Public Opposition to the
           Jay Treaty and the Origins of the People's Presidency
    • Abstract: Historians of early United States political culture widely acknowledge the Jay Treaty to be a pivotal diplomatic event in the 1790s, and the public debate over it a defining moment in the early history of presidential politics and American democracy. Yet historians have not given adequate credit to George Washington's public critics during the treaty controversy, whose words and actions beyond the control of the executive branch, outside of the presidential election cycle, and in direct defiance of the administration's wishes, profoundly and permanently re-imagined the symbolic role of the presidential office. It was public critics of Washington, outraged at his support for the Jay treaty, who first imagined the ... Read More

  • "Our Rights Are Getting More & More Infringed Upon": American Nationalism,
           Identity, and Sailors' Justice in British Prisons during the War of 1812
    • Abstract: In March 1815, American prisoners of war at Dartmoor Depot in Devon County, England, paraded a straw effigy of a man dressed in pantaloons and a cravat across the prison grounds to the roof of Block Number Seven. After a brief trial, during which the straw man confessed his numerous crimes, the prisoners fastened a halter around the effigy's neck and an executioner hanged him until "dead." After cutting the effigy down, a small group carried the body to a convenient spot in the yard where they burnt it to ashes and scattered the remains to the wind. The prisoners conducted the execution in silence while British guards looked on. Perhaps the guards would have interrupted the proceedings if the effigy had been of the ... Read More

  • The Angel of Nullification: Imagining Disunion in an Era Before Secession
    • Abstract: The early 1830s was a tumultuous period for South Carolina's politicians and intellectuals. Federal regulations from the past decade, passed to help northern manufacturing, threatened to slow the cotton industry that thrived in southern states. Citizens were split between "unionists," who believed the nation's interests superseded state concerns, and "nullifiers," who believed the state had a right to challenge federal laws. Many of South Carolina's most prominent thinkers believed there was both an expanding gulf between them and the northern states and, more importantly, that the national government was conspiring to override the state's economy and society. Those who took the charge in reconstructing a narrative ... Read More

    • Abstract: Like Meredith McGill's American Literature and the Culture of Reprinting (Philadephia, 2003) and Trish Loughran's The Republic in Print: Print Culture and U.S. Nation Building, 1770–1870 (New York, 2007), London and the Making of Provincial Literature is ambitious in its scope and argument and fundamentally challenges our understanding of the nation as a category of analysis in American book history of the first half of the nineteenth century. Joseph Rezek offers a bracing reorientation of the literary market in the early nineteenth century, arguing that the United States shared with Scotland and Ireland a provincial orientation toward London as a center of English-language publishing. In The World Republic of ... Read More

  • War of Two: Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, and the Duel That Stunned the
           Nation by John Sedgwick and: Aaron Burr in Exile: A Pariah in Paris,
           1810–1811 by Jane Merrill, John Endecott (review)
    • Abstract: John Sedgwick is a journalist and a descendant of Theodore Sedgwick, an early national politician who was friend to both Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. It was while going through his ancestor's papers that Sedgwick's interest in their duel was sparked, but alas, Sedgwick is out of his depth in attempting to explain what is not only the most famous duel in American history but also the most puzzling.One of the main problems with the book is the number of factual errors. Any one of these taken by itself might be seen as trivial, but the accumulation of such errors indicates careless research and detracts from the author's credibility. Two examples will suffice. Sedgwick states that Burr's wife Theodosia Bartow ... Read More

  • Slavery and the Democratic Conscience: Political Life in Jeffersonian
           America by Padraig Riley (review)
    • Abstract: Northern Jeffersonians knew that slavery contradicted democracy. But from the emergence of the Democratic-Republican Party in the 1790s through the Missouri Crisis, they rarely figured out how to translate "universalist conceptions" (19) into antislavery success on the national stage. The refusal of southern Republicans to permit the national government from intervening against any aspect of domestic slavery constituted a major obstacle. In Padraig Riley's rendering, a divided mind played at least as big a role, for northern democrats had another, louder voice in their heads than an antislavery one. That voice insistently told political operatives that the best hope for democracy's survival was a cohesive ... Read More

  • Lincoln in the Atlantic World by Louise L. Stevenson (review)
    • Abstract: The transnational turn in writing American history is surely the most significant, influential trend shaping the historiography of the past several decades. Employing more cosmopolitan or international frames of reference, historians of the United States are connecting American events to trends elsewhere, tracing ideas and movements across national boundaries, and rejecting conventional notions of what is loosely condemned as American exceptionalism. For early Americanists, especially, the Atlantic world paradigm now reigns supreme. It was inevitable that Abraham Lincoln would not escape this new orthodoxy, and Louise Stevenson's intriguing portrait of "Lincoln in the Atlantic World" is the latest in a series of ... Read More

  • Eighty-Eight Years: The Long Death of Slavery in the United States,
           1777–1865 by Patrick Rael (review)
    • Abstract: A growing number of influential scholars who study American slavery and abolition, including David Brion Davis, Ira Berlin, and Steven Hahn, have recently depicted the period from the 1777 Vermont Constitution through the ratification of the 13th Amendment as a "long emancipation."1 With his insightful and sweeping survey of abolition in America, Patrick Rael has added a worthy addition to what is quickly becoming a swelling chorus of historians. The central question Rael seeks to answer is why slavery endured so long and ended so violently in the United States when compared with other New World slave societies. His answer lies in the emergence of a potent slave power in the American South. The federal nature of ... Read More

  • Heading South to Teach: The World of Susan Nye Hutchison, 1815–1845
           by Kim Tolley (review)
    • Abstract: In Heading South to Teach: The World of Susan Nye Hutchison, 1815–1845, Kim Tolley recounts the story of a northern teacher's tumultuous thirty-year residence in antebellum North Carolina and Georgia. Basing her analysis on Hutchison's diary, and filling in the blanks with extensive secondary literature, she depicts an ambitious, principled, and conscientious teacher, businesswoman, wife, mother, Christian, and antislavery sympathizer, making her way in, and often despairing of, an unjust world. Presenting her story in three sections—Hutchison's varied and successful career as an educator, her abusive marriage and the local Presbyterian community's intercession on her behalf, and the changing ways she understood ...

  • Slave against Slave: Plantation Violence in the Old South by Jeff Forret
           (review)
    • Abstract: The antebellum South was a violent place. On the eve of the American Civil War, approximately four million enslaved African Americans performed back-breaking labor from sunup to sundown under the constant threat of physical punishment, sexual abuse, and separation from loved ones. Scholars have long noted that white-on-black violence structured everyday life for enslaved people, but they have been less willing to discuss violence within slave communities.Jeff Forret's Slave against Slave: Plantation Violence in the Old South is the first study to comprehensively examine slavery's intraracial violence. The work is not a conservative throwback to pre-revisionist historiography, simplistically equating violence with ... Read More

  • Shall Be Deluged in Blood: A New History of the Nat Turner Rebellion by
           Patrick H. Breen (review)
    • Abstract: Ever since violence erupted in Southampton, Virginia in 1831, the Nat Turner revolt has captured the public imagination, resulting in the publication of a wide array of political tracts, plays, and novels in the last 185 years. By contrast, relatively few historians have taken on the task of scrutinizing a slave rebellion that led to the deaths of about 60 whites, was incited by a band of around 40 enslaved rebels, and made an indelible impact on American history. But in Patrick Breen's fine new book, Nat Turner and his world are again thrust under the microscope, shedding new light on questions not considered previously by scholars. Breen's work revolves around two themes: mobilization and self-preservation. In ... Read More

  • Aiming for Pensacola: Fugitive Slaves on the Atlantic and Southern
           Frontiers by Matthew J. Clavin (review)
    • Abstract: Matthew Clavin provides an insightful study of fugitive slaves in Pensacola, Florida, by offering a corrective on the prevailing narrative of the Underground Railroad and situating it within the historiographies of the Atlantic world, the southern frontier, and interracialism. Clavin explores the development of Pensacola from the colonial period through the Civil War, emphasizing the roles of African Americans in the development of a multiracial society on the fringes of the southern frontier. Importantly, he shows that Pensacola offers an excellent place to study the effects of the Underground Railroad despite the historiographical emphasis that has centered on the Underground Railroad in the Upper South.Clavin ...

  • Rivers of Sand: Creek Indian Emigration, Relocation, and Ethnic Cleansing
           in the American South by Christopher D. Haveman (review)
    • Abstract: In his first book, Rivers of Sand: Creek Indian Emigration, Relocation, and Ethnic Cleansing in the American South, Christopher D. Haveman examines Creek Indian emigration and relocation in the nineteenth century. Beginning in the late 1820s and accelerating in the 1830s, thousands of white settlers invaded Creek country. With state and federal backing, settlers squatted on Creek lands that Alabama and Georgia claimed for their citizens. Land speculators subsequently defrauded Creeks out of their remaining lands with an arsenal of legal tactics. Altogether, Haveman contends that federal, state, local, and private interests implemented a "systematic program of ethnic cleansing" to remove Creeks from the South (3). ... Read More

  • Groundless: Rumors, Legends, and Hoaxes on the Early American Frontier by
           Gregory Evans Dowd (review)
    • Abstract: In April 1782, while in France, Benjamin Franklin printed a broadside. It contained a bit of news. While on an expedition near the St. Lawrence River, the news sheet announced, New England militiamen had stumbled upon something staggering: nearly 1,000 scalps. They were the scalps of Americans—farmers, wives, boys, girls, and babies, bales full of them. And they were on their way to the British governor of Canada, as if in fulfillment of his orders. "I send herewith to your Excellency," read an accompanying message, "eight packs of Scalps, cured, dried, hooped and painted." It was an outrageous story. It was also entirely fake. Franklin, looking to cast aspersion on the British during treaty negotiations, simply ... Read More

  • Illicit Love: Interracial Sex and Marriage in the United States and
           Australia by Ann McGrath (review)
    • Abstract: In Illicit Love: Interracial Sex and Marriage in the United States and Australia, Ann McGrath inventively explores intimate interracial relationships "across colonizing boundaries" between European-descended settlers and Indigenous peoples during the early republican periods of U.S. and Australian history (xiv). Building on Richard White's work, McGrath calls these relationships a "marital middle ground" that "presented a fundamental challenge to the social, sexual, and colonizing dynamics of settler colonialism" (25, 2). McGrath argues that marriage forms both a subject and a lens for historical analysis as a "bamboozling crossroads of gender, race, class, and colonialism" that is "imagined, embodied, concrete ...

  • Riotous Flesh: Women, Physiology, and the Solitary Vice in
           Nineteenth-Century America by April R. Haynes (review)
    • Abstract: In Riotous Flesh, April Haynes examines the moral reformers who crusaded against the solitary vice (masturbation) in the North between 1830 and 1860. Activists contended that unlike heterosexual sex, this type of stimulation caused insanity, illness, and even death. She argues that "only through the efforts of antebellum female reformers did a majority of Americans come to consider it [masturbation] a deviant, crazy-making act" (4). Women—both white and black—led this movement because they "shared a strong desire to transform the contemporary politics of sexuality" (4).The role of women as leaders in this movement is central to Haynes's narrative. She contends that female reformers who advocated against ... Read More

  • Damned Nation: Hell in America from the Revolution to Reconstruction by
           Kathryn Gin Lum (review)
    • Abstract: Kathryn Gin Lum's Damned Nation: Hell in America from the Revolution to Reconstruction is an impressive work that explores antebellum Americans' persistent belief in hell, and why that belief mattered to both individuals and society.Undergirding this book is a deep consideration of a continuous evangelical community who set the terms of the discourse. Gin Lum follows leading clergy, from Jonathan Edwards to Charles Grandison Finney, and beyond, to explain how among evangelicals the concept of hell was a moving target, refining and adapting to opponents' criticisms and contemporary contexts. All evangelicals retained an insistence that "we" (evangelicals) held absolute truth, and without full acceptance of their ... Read More
