  • Counterfeit Kin: Kidnappers of Color, the Reverse Underground Railroad,
           and the Origins of Practical Abolition
    • Abstract: Sam Scomp rose early. He was a runaway from a slave plantation in New Jersey and had been sleeping rough at different spots in Philadelphia for the last few nights. Probably hungry and surely stiff, Scomp set out toward the docks at the end of Market Street. His plan was to try to earn enough money to buy breakfast by helping ships' crews cart barrels and boxes from their holds into town. Just fifteen years old, Scomp was young and strong, but he did not have his own wagon or wheelbarrow and barely knew anyone. So it must have seemed like a blessing when a mixed-race man walked up to Scomp to offer him work unloading a shipment of "Peaches, Oranges, Water Melons &c" from a small sloop at anchor out by the Navy ...

  • "The Most Valiant in Defense of His Country": Andrew Jackson's Bequest and
           the Politics of Courage, 1819–1857
    • Abstract: On June 8, 1845, Andrew Jackson, former president, military hero, and Democratic Party icon, died at his Hermitage estate outside Nashville, Tennessee. Word of Jackson's death spread rapidly across the nation. Democratic newspapers eulogized him as a champion of the common man, while Whig journals adopted a more temperate tone—partisan divisions and political memories still cast a long shadow. Cities and towns held funeral observances to commemorate the General's passing. Jackson's last will and testament, his final message to his countrymen as it were, commanded notice too: Bequests to family and friends included the "elegant" swords awarded Jackson for his various military deeds, no less than four of these, along ...

  • "Reducing Free Men to Slavery": Black Kidnapping, the "Slave Power," and
           the Politics of Abolition in Antebellum Illinois, 1830–1860
    • Abstract: When the Pope County Circuit Court, which sat deep in southern Illinois, convened its October 1844 session, it had a regular docket of criminal indictments: larceny, trespass, assault, and various violations for disturbing the peace. One case, however, stood out: A jury indicted Peyton Gordon, a Virginia-born resident of Pope County, for kidnapping a free African American woman and selling her into slavery. The evidence indicated that Gordon broke into a free African American man's house and, in the dark of night, made away with his daughter. It was the second kidnapping indictment in Pope County in as many years. Meanwhile, at roughly the same time that Gordon allegedly kidnapped a free woman, on the opposite side ... Read More

  • "Too Mean to Live, and Certainly in No Fit Condition to Die": Vandalism,
           Public Misbehavior, and the Rural Cemetery Movement
    • Abstract: Thronged with visitors arriving by boat, omnibus, and carriage, and on foot, Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery in the 1840s had a problem shared by other such cemeteries during the antebellum period. As the New York Evening Post reported,Frequent instances have been known, even on ordinary occasions, when the vandalism of visitors has prompted them to scale the little enclosures, plunder the flowers which affection has planted upon the graves of the departed, and bear them away in the shape of bouquets, as gifts to those who are equally indifferent as to the source whence they were procured. Some of the monuments, we are told, have had their corners knocked off in a spirit of mere wantonness, and the knife of the ... Read More

  • Mapping Intersectionality, Imagining Music, and Excavating America's
           African Archives
    • Abstract: Laurent DuBois's The Banjo: America's African Instrument and Randy J. Sparks's Africans in the Old South: Mapping Exceptional Lives across the Atlantic World illustrate the continued significance of Paul Gilroy's pathbreaking work Black Atlantic.1 Over two decades later, the Black Atlantic's critique and reframing of ethnicity, imperialism, and colonialism echoes strongly in these two books. However, both works highlight new directions in the study of enslaved Africans and their diasporic movement. Both Africans and The Banjo demonstrate the relatively recent scholarly push to integrate the scholarship of African history, Atlantic history, and American history.2 From the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries ...

    • Abstract: As the title suggests, The American School references Matthew Pratt's 1765 painting in which Benjamin West appears to instruct a gathering of young American artists. Susan Rather reevaluates this much-discussed composition not as an homage to West as is often the case, but as a signpost of optimism on the part of Pratt—a hopeful message that soon, American artists would rival the status and identity of their European counterparts. The dual quest to both discern the "Americanness" that evolved in a post-Revolutionary society and how that emerging identity would couple with a rising appreciation for the role of artists versus artisans serves as the underlying premise for The American School: Artists and Status in the ...

  • Contested Conventions: The Struggle to Establish The Constitution and Save
           the Union, 1787–1789 by Melvin Yazawa (review)
    • Abstract: Melvin Yazawa offers a new account of the Philadelphia Convention and the subsequent ratification conventions. He does so in relatively brief compass, with an emphasis on the Federalists' argument that America faced a crisis in 1787–89. Though not pathbreaking, this part of the book is concise and readable. Yazawa concludes with an account of James Madison's response to the Nullification Crisis of 1832–33, plus an attack on originalism in constitutional interpretation. He does not make clear why these are included, and they mar the book.Yazawa says that he will focus on the sense of crisis that was in the air in Philadelphia and during the ratification campaign, and here is a tip that the book will reflect ...

  • The Fate of the Revolution: Virginians Debate the Constitution by Lorri
           Glover (review)
    • Abstract: In The Fate of the Revolution: Virginians Debate the Constitution, Lorri Glover fills a curious gap in the literature on the ratification of the Constitution. While Virginia and Virginians figure prominently in general studies, there has been no book devoted solely to Virginia since Hugh Grigsby's in 1890 and 1891. Glover has made extensive and effective use of both The Documentary History of the Ratification of the Constitution and the large body of secondary works to reach a simple conclusion; that the Virginia debates "were the most important—and the most evenly matched—of all the state conventions called to decide whether to adopt or reject the US Constitution" (1). Only Massachusetts and New York matched the ... Read More

  • The Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798: Testing the Constitution by Terri
           Diane Halperin (review)
    • Abstract: The first specialized treatment of the Alien and Sedition Acts since John C. Miller's Crisis in Freedom: The Alien and Sedition Acts (Boston, 1951) and J. Morton Smith's Freedom's Fetters: The Alien and Sedition Acts and American Civil Liberties (Ithaca, NY, 1956), Terri Diane Halperin's The Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 examines the constitutional and political crisis of the late 1790s. Although slim and aimed at undergraduates, this work packs a powerful punch.Halperin argues that the primary political and constitutional question of the 1790s revolved around "the proper role of the people in a republic" (9). Using this traditional question, Halperin provides a succinct overview of the early part of the 1790s. ... Read More

  • The Haitian Revolution and the Early United States: Histories,
           Textualities, Geographies ed. by Elizabeth Maddock Dillon and Michael
           Drexler (review)
    • Abstract: Michel-Rolph Trouillot's observation that the tendency to see the Haitian Revolution as having been "silenced" and the former French colony in highly negative terms—freakish, bizarre, grotesque, and "unexplainable"—has led to a lack of acknowledgement of the history of connections between Haiti and other countries. Scholarly attention regarding Haiti has ebbed and flowed, despite the political and cultural impact of its anticolonial, antislavery revolution on the United States. Haiti and the United States were closely intertwined. Therefore, Elizabeth Maddock Dillon and Michael J. Drexler argue, "it should no longer be possible" to write a history of the early republic without mentioning Haiti or St. Domingue" ... Read More

  • Our Sister Republics: The United States in an Age of American Revolutions
           by Caitlin Fitz (review)
    • Abstract: Examine any textbook or recent monograph and you will find, with few exceptions, that the global history of the early republic is still dominated by new interpretations of old yarns about the XYZ Affair, the Quasi War, Tripoli, embargos, impressments, and the War of 1812. With the publication of Our Sister Republics, Caitlin Fitz joins a coterie of young scholars who are pushing the field to consider the early U.S. republic's ties to the rest of the world outside of Europe. Like the ordinary and extraordinary people who are its subjects, Fitz uses Latin America as a mirror to reexamine the United States. Our Sister Republics turns a familiar story about early national politics and inter-American relations into an ... Read More

  • From Furs to Farms: The Transformation of the Mississippi Valley,
           1762–1825 by John Reda (review)
    • Abstract: From Furs to Farms analyzes economic and political change in the Illinois Country from 1762–1825, and it aims to emphasize "the multiethnic, multiracial assortment of peoples living and working in the Mississippi valley" (20). In the vein of recent works by Bethel Saler and Robert Morrissey, Reda offers an exploration of the contingencies of early American economic and political development in the Old Northwest and Mississippi Valley.1Reda's history bridges the revolutionary period with good reason since the "Illinois Country in this period was an international crossroads with a highly diverse population and ties in several directions to international markets and competing imperial powers" (4). This ... Read More

  • The Borderland of Fear: Vincennes, Prophetstown, and the Invasion of the
           Miami Homeland by Patrick Bottiger (review)
    • Abstract: A simple history of the Midwest in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries might categorize its dramatis personae into a small number of monolithic and clearly differentiated groups, most importantly natives and conquering settlers. Narrating consequential turning points such as the Northwest Ordinance, the Treaty of Greenville, the rise of Tenskwatawa and his village at Prophetstown, and ultimately the defeat of native peoples at the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811, such a history might locate the cause of conflict between natives and newcomers in the straightforward resentments and contestations associated with settler colonialism and the native response it inspired. Actors in this story would profess ... Read More

  • My Brother Slaves: Friendship, Masculinity, and Resistance in the
           Antebellum South by Sergio A. Lussana (review)
    • Abstract: In My Brother Slaves: Friendship, Masculinity, and Resistance in the Antebellum South, Sergio A. Lussana argues that slave manhood was forged in all-male communities and through many of the same rites and rituals of white, honor-obsessed southerners, including "drinking, gambling, wrestling, and hunting" (7). This homosocial world took shape in sex-segregated "work spaces" and shaped male slaves' development as men, especially through rites and rituals of friendship (19). These friendships, in turn, positively influenced slaves' resistance such as cross-plantation theft, escape, and overt rebellion. Accordingly, the book "reconceptualizes male slave resistance to slavery by shifting attention from the visible ... Read More

  • A Notorious Woman: Anne Royall in Jacksonian America by Elizabeth J. Clapp
           (review)
    • Abstract: Elizabeth J. Clapp's A Notorious Woman: Anne Royall in Jacksonian America recovers the life and career of a remarkable woman who has been forgotten for far too long. Born in 1769, Anne Newport Royall spent her earliest years in relative poverty on the Maryland frontier. At twenty-eight years of age she married the older and wealthier Major William Royall in what would seem to be a rags-to-riches tale. After her husband's death, however, Royall was stripped of her estate by in-laws who accused her of sexual impropriety and spousal abuse. Left with a bruised reputation and no income at fifty-four years old, Royall took up her pen and became one of the most notorious figures of the Jacksonian era literary ... Read More

           Andrew's Court by William S. Belko, and: John Pendleton Kennedy: Early
           American Novelist, Whig Statesman, and Ardent Nationalist by Andrew R.
           Black (review)
    • Abstract: The Pendletons of Virginia, famous for such scions as the Revolutionary era Judge Edmund Pendleton, have, it seems, more branches in their family tree than previously recognized. In this pair of books by William S. Belko and Andrew R. Black, two more Pendleton descendants have been elevated from historical obscurity: Philip Pendleton Barbour, the Old Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives from 1821 to 1823 and Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1835 to 1841, and John Pendleton Kennedy, the Whig politician from Baltimore and author of numerous novels, including most notably Swallow Barn (1832). Taken together, these two biographies successfully shed new light on their subjects and enhance ... Read More

  • Legal Science in the Early Republic: The Origins of American Legal Thought
           and Education by Steven J. Macias (review)
    • Abstract: This is an intellectual history of legal thought in the post-Revolutionary United States—or, rather, it is an outline of one. The book is something like the "introductory lectures" commonly published by the nation's first law professors in the early decades of the nineteenth century, which generally sought to sketch the meaning of law, its underlying philosophy, and all of those basic values upon which they believed the social order in republican America to be based. (For anything more practical, the professors expected students to enroll and to pay tuition.) Steven Macias, who is also a law professor, here only rarely discusses particular legal issues, specific cases, or even broad subject areas within the law. ... Read More

  • The Politics of Black Citizenship: Free African Americans in the
           Mid-Atlantic Borderland, 1817–1863 by Andrew K. Diemer (review)
    • Abstract: Andrew Diemer's The Politics of Black Citizenship is a study of black political activism in Philadelphia and Baltimore during the five decades preceding the Civil War. Following the lead of recent works that chart black engagement with mainstream political culture, Diemer assails the tendency among an earlier generation of historians to depict free African American communities as withdrawn and inward-looking. His goal is to look outward. By "illuminating the role that free African Americans played in antebellum politics and documenting the complexity of the struggle for black citizenship," Diemer argues that free black Baltimoreans and Philadelphians almost single-handedly kept questions of black citizenship in ...

  • Lincoln and the Politics of Slavery: The Other Thirteenth Amendment and
           the Struggle to Save the Union by Daniel W. Crofts (review)
    • Abstract: Daniel Crofts's Lincoln and the Politics of Slavery provides a detailed look at the Thirteenth Amendment that did not pass, what Croft refers to as "The Other Thirteenth Amendment." The actual Thirteenth Amendment is one of the high points of the American Constitution. It finally and belatedly put an end to slavery in the United States, ending the shameful anomaly of the antebellum Constitution that simultaneously contained a far-reaching Bill of Rights while also providing constitutional protection for the right of some human beings to own other human beings. Crofts presents us with another Thirteenth Amendment, a constitutional proposal that passed Congress and had Lincoln's support, but ultimately failed to get ... Read More
