  • Editors’ Note
    • Abstract: This joint issue, “Writing To and From the Revolution,” is the product of a two-year collaboration with the William and Mary Quarterly aimed at reconsidering the ways in which the American Revolution served as a watershed separating the colonial and national periods and, by extension, much of the scholarship in the WMQ from that in the JER. We began with a series of questions: How and why does it matter that many of us still write to or from the Revolution' Are there better ways to conceptualize change and continuity' How has writing to or from the Revolution shaped the ways in which we have written about the Revolution itself ' Taken together, the essays collected in the two journals help us to see the ...

  • Introduction: Expand or Die: The Revolution’s New Empire
    • Abstract: This joint issue of the William and Mary Quarterly and the Journal of the Early Republic asks if we have miscast the American Revolution by treating it either as the culmination of colonial history or as the foundation for the early republic. Does focusing on the coming revolution distort the colonial past to serve a teleology' Or do we a priori assume that the revolution was a watershed between a rather somnolent colonial society and a modernizing republican order' What happens to our histories if instead we plant the revolution in the middle of a longer flow of change: does it appear more or less transformative' Defining “The American Revolution” becomes more difficult as our discipline waxes ...

  • Toward a Social History of Federalism: The State and Capitalism To and
           From the American Revolution
    • Abstract: Coming to terms with the American state requires a better understanding of this power on the periphery. Thus far in the twenty-first century, interest in the history of the state and capitalism is back with a vengeance. Like so many other readers of the Journal of the Early Republic, I could not be happier about this development. What many have called the new histories of the state and of capitalism, when combined, argue for a strong and effective nation–state in the early national United States, and a national (really international) capitalist economy with slavery at its center. These literatures are ascendant for a reason; they are very good and challenge traditional claims about a United States barely ... Read More

  • 1776, Viewed from the West
    • Abstract: In 1784 on the west side of the Appalachian Mountains in the tiny town of Jonesborough, a group of white settlers met and declared their independence. They established a state they eventually called Franklin and petitioned for admission into the new United States. When that avenue seemed closed to them, they still tried desperately to shore up their fragile new state, especially through violence against neighboring Cherokee towns. The ambitious little state of Franklin failed within about five years, but not before it had sparked new rounds of violence in the trans-Appalachian region and highlighted critical questions about sovereignty, statehood, and expansion in the young federal union. This ... Read More

  • Ancients, Moderns, and Africans: Phillis Wheatley and the Politics of
           Empire and Slavery in the American Revolution
    • Abstract: In a letter to Mohegan minister Samson Occom published in eleven colonial newspapers during the spring of 1774, Phillis Wheatley engaged in an extended comparison of religious and political liberties, relating both to the question of African slavery. Rev’d and honor’d Sir, I have this Day received your obliging kind Epistle, and am greatly satisfied with your Reasons respecting the Negroes, and think highly reasonable what you offer in Vindication of their natural Rights: Those that invade them cannot be insensible that the divine Light is chasing away the thick Darkness which broods over the Land of Africa; and the Chaos which has reign’d so long, is converting into beautiful Order, and ...

  • Commerce and Conquest in Early American Foreign Relations, 1750–1850
    • Abstract: Early American foreign relations revolved around commerce. Most books on American diplomatic history begin with the premise that the United States inevitably occupied a continent. When we think about foreign relations, therefore, we all too often think about conquest. Consider two recent and crucial studies. Peter Onuf ’s sophisticated analysis of Jefferson’s ideas on nationhood assumes that the Sage of Monticello believed that the United States would march across the continent to form an empire of liberty. Eliga Gould shares this perspective and argues that as early as 1776 Americans planned on replacing the British empire with a continental nation of their own that would allow the United States to be an ...

  • Conclusion: Writing To and From the Revolution
    • Abstract: What a time to be writing this article. In 2017, we are living through our own unlooked-for American Revolution, thanks to an election that revealed an America quite different from what many had thought. From social media to kitchen tables, citizens and noncitizens alike are reflecting on the nature of American democracy, of political participation, and of national identity. The timing could not be better to appreciate a series of thoughtful and trenchant analyses of the significance of the birth of this country. Readers of the Journal of the Early Republic and the William and Mary Quarterly know how difficult it is to overstate the enormous role that the American Revolution plays in the American ...

  • The Washingtons: George and Martha, “Join’d by Friendship, Crown’d
           by Love by Flora Fraser (review)
    • Abstract: The latest trend in biographies of the founding fathers has been to tell the story of a married couple or a group, as in the many biographies of John and Abigail Adams. British biographer Flora Fraser has taken this approach before in her book on King George III’s six daughters, but now she has turned her attention to America. Her portrait of George and Martha Washington’s marriage is detailed and thoroughly documented, but like most popular histories, focuses on narrative rather than broader historical arguments and insights. Writing about the Washingtons is far more challenging than the Adamses; unlike the copious correspondence John and Abigail Adams left, the Washingtons apparently burned ... Read More

  • The Papers of George Washington: The Revolutionary War Series, Volume 23:
           22 October–December 1779 ed. by William M. Ferraro (review)
    • Abstract: The Papers of George Washington Project, begun in 1968, marches on, with the end now in sight. Sixty-three out of a planned ninety volumes have been published, with completion said to be coming within the next eight years. Once finished, more than 140,000 Washington documents will have been gathered, edited, annotated, and published in both printed form and as a digital edition as part of the Founders Online and Rotunda collections. The present volume covers a little more than two months at the end of 1779. It shows Washington principally as an administrator. He did no fighting but a lot of writing as he waited for news of operations in Georgia, saw his hopes for a Franco–American assault on British-occupied ... Read More

  • Boy Soldiers of the American Revolution by Caroline Cox (review)
    • Abstract: Soldiering, according to early modern expectations, was a man’s work. Military service required strength and endurance. Armies consequently had little use for boys. In the Revolutionary War, Congress and the rebellious states set sixteen as an age limit for their recruiters and draft policies. Nevertheless, Caroline Cox has identified hundreds of boys who joined regiments fighting for American independence. Most of these boys were between thirteen and fifteen years old, but some were as young as nine. She estimates that 1.5 to 2.5 percent of Continental soldiers were younger than sixteen. Cox’s work opens windows into the diversity of experiences in the Revolutionary War and the relationship between ... Read More

  • From Loyalists to Loyal Citizens: The DePeyster Family of New York by
           Valerie H. McKito (review)
    • Abstract: What happened to the loyalists after they lost the American Revolution' Maya Jasanoff ’s immensely popular Liberty’s Exiles tracks the fortunes of some 60,000 Tory refugees who fled the independent states and filtered out to Canada, England, the Caribbean, and other remaining outposts of the British Empire.1 But could such onetime enemies ever return to the homes they had forsaken' Would homesick exiles ever be re-accepted back into societies that considered them apostates and betrayers' In at least one significant case, according Valerie McKito, the answer was a resounding yes. From Loyalists to Loyal Citizens is a multi-generational family biography of the DePeysters of New York, focusing in ... Read More

  • Citizen Sailors: Becoming American in the Age of Revolution by Nathan
           Perl-Rosenthal (review)
    • Abstract: As Jesse Lemisch revealed in the 1960s, Jack Tar was not a “rebel without a cause.”1 Since then, scholars have struggled to identify who Jack Tar was and what cause or causes he embraced. Nathan Perl-Rosenthal contextualizes sailors’ early American republic world. He does not see sailors as united by material conditions, labor arrangements, or class conflict as have Marcus Rediker and Peter Linebaugh. Neither were seamen primarily motivated by revolutionary ideology. Like the sailors in Paul Gilje’s work, Perl-Rosenthal’s Jack Tars are motivated by the need to make a living in a complex and war-torn Atlantic world, which put seafarers in the “midst of a struggle for national citizenship” (270). In his ... Read More

  • The American Revolution, State Sovereignty, and the American
           Constitutional Settlement 1765–1800 by Aaron N. Coleman (review)
    • Abstract: In The American Revolution, State Sovereignty, and the American Constitutional Settlement 1765–1800, Aaron N. Coleman reminds readers about the importance of state sovereignty to Americans who lived in the last four decades of the eighteenth century. Nationalist historians, according to Coleman, have viewed events through the eyes of the Federalists and missed the importance of this principle. The governments that Americans established during that time, Coleman contends, were rooted and remained committed to the idea of state sovereignty because they believed that the states would be better protectors of liberty. After the American Revolution, however, Alexander Hamilton and the Federalists undermined state ... Read More
