  • "Make 'em Laugh": Why History Cannot Be Reduced to Song and Dance
    • Abstract: Whether professional scholars agree or not, the musical Hamilton has been widely praised for its historical value. Jody Rosen (who is not a historian) asserted without qualification in The New York Times Magazine that the musical was a "rigorously factual period drama." The Huffington Post credited the historical Hamilton for envisioning the United States as a "unified nation, a strong federal government and an urban, industrial society—all things Democrats embrace today," as opposed to Jefferson's "rural utopianism." Caught up in the dramatic personality of the play's protagonist, these writers downplay the fact that Hamilton's major (and not so hip) constituency—the "one percent"—were wealthy speculators. Theater ... Read More

  • Martha Ann Honeywell: Art, Performance, and Disability in the Early
           Republic
    • Abstract: On November 3, 1828, the celebrated artist Martha Ann Honeywell arrived at Rembrandt and Rubens Peale's museum in Baltimore. For the past week, Rubens had intensively advertised her artistic achievements and atypical appearance in the Baltimore Patriot, and local citizens hotly anticipated her arrival. As Rubens explained, Honeywell was known as "a great curiosity" throughout North America and Europe as much for her embroidery, waxwork, miniature writing, and paper cutting as for her singular body, which lacked arms and hands and had just one foot with three toes. Along with the citizens of Baltimore, the Peales were clearly delighted with the opportunity to add Honeywell to the museum's selection of artistic and ... Read More

  • Introduction: Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton: An American Musical and the
           Early American Republic
    • Abstract: By now, we all know the story: In 2008, Lin-Manuel Miranda, a twenty-eight-year-old composer, lyricist, and performer, fresh from his Broadway hit In the Heights, took Ron Chernow's Alexander Hamilton on vacation to Mexico. The 800-page biography of the first Secretary of the Treasury might have seemed like strange candidate for a beach read. But the sympathetic study, which recounted the personal and political ascent of a West Indian émigré from a nondescript childhood to his death in a duel, resonated. Miranda, himself the child of Puerto Rican immigrants who had achieved professional success in the United States, saw in Chernow's book a distinctly American story, an immigrant striver's story. The following ... Read More

  • Will the Real Alexander Hamilton Please Stand Up?
    • Abstract: Since February of 2015, we've been in the midst of a Hamilton conversation: a disjointed, angry, joyful, sometimes lightweight, sometimes weighty multimedia debate. Its roots are in a book, a bill, and a show. In 2004, Ron Chernow's blockbuster Hamilton set the stage for our current onslaught by depicting Hamilton as a heroic but forgotten founder who deserves recognition. In 2015, the Treasury Department invested Hamilton-celebrating with a sense of purpose by threatening to remove him from the ten-dollar bill. And later that year, Lin-Manuel Miranda's revolutionary and seemingly irresistible musical Hamilton transformed that celebration into a cultural phenomenon with staying power. In the theater world, the ... Read More

  • Crooked Histories: Re-presenting Race, Slavery, and Alexander Hamilton
           Onstage
    • Abstract: "American history can be told and retold, claimed and reclaimed, even by people who don't look like George Washington and Betsy Ross," observes Lin-Manuel Miranda in Hamilton: The Revolution. Miranda's Broadway triumph boldly reinvents Alexander Hamilton's biography as a deconstruction of national identity formation, subverting audience expectations not only of musical theater, but about how contemporary audiences should imagine the racial and ethnic backgrounds of America's founding fathers and mothers. And as other scholars have noted, in addition to using actors of color to represent white historical figures (such as Hamilton, Jefferson, Madison, Washington), Miranda laces his retelling of the Revolution's ...

  • The American Revolution Rebooted: Hamilton and Genre in Contemporary
           Culture
    • Abstract: The American public has become enamored with stories of and about the founding period. Hamilton: An American Musical, while distinctive, engages with an emerging entertainment genre shaped by the culture industry (whether in Hollywood or on Broadway) for today's anxious United States audiences. Observant viewers can easily identify these productions' hallmarks: The setting can be instantly visually communicated; there are heroes with recognizable qualities but are nonetheless indistinct in the popular imagination, so writers can play with them; the villains are ethnically British, minimizing the likelihood of public-relations blowback; nobody likes slavery, the true brutality of which is never shown; and women can ...

  • Toward a More Perfect Hamilton
    • Abstract: In their fascinating libretto, Hamilton: The Revolution (2016), Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter interviewed Quest-love, iconic hip-hop drummer for The Roots, who openly admitted "[i]t's been a while since hip hop has been able to show its brilliance . . . now it's sort of coasting." Hip-hop first emerged in the 1970s as a counterculture rooted in the issues and aspirations of primarily black and brown people, a hybrid music that drew inspiration from divergent cultural streams. Hip-hop culture has always been driven by an often materialistic ambition to move from margins to the center of American music, art, and fashion. In recent times, the culture seems to have lost its way, forgotten its roots, as it ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: Once a year, the JER features an essay that seeks to cast fresh eyes on the study of the early American republic. Here, Sarah Barringer Gordon and Jan Shipps offer new ways of viewing the infamous Mountain Meadows Massacre of 1857, that "fatal convergence" that resulted in a Mormon militia killing 120 Methodists making the westward migration through Utah. If once we saw that atrocity as clarifying sharp differences between religious groups, Gordon and Shipps seek to persuade us to change our minds. Their essay insists that we see how much the Methodists and Latter-Day Saints shared in common with regard to ideologies of slavery, empire, patriarchy, and violent dispossession—and it implies that many other Americans ...

  • Fatal Convergence in the Kingdom of God: The Mountain Meadows Massacre in
           American History
    • Abstract: "O Lord, my God, receive thy spirits, it is for thy Kingdom that I do this." This was the prayer uttered by a Mormon participant in the notorious Mountain Meadows Massacre of 1857, as he fatally shot those already wounded. The massacre was an important by-product of religious change in early national life, and an infamous example of white-on-white violence in the antebellum American west. The longer history and dynamism of religious conflict uncovered here reveals deeply related expressions of faith by Methodist migrants on the move and Mormon settlers on the ground. As members of both faiths converged at Mountain Meadows, each was determined to build the Kingdom of God on earth and each assumed that they alone ... Read More

  • "The Open Violence of Desperate Men": Rethinking Property and Power in the
           1835 Baltimore Bank Riot
    • Abstract: This is the story of a riot with two legacies. The Baltimore Bank Riot erupted over frauds related to the recent closing of the Bank of Maryland, and was one of the most violent spectacles of an era well known for its spectacular violence. For several tumultuous days and nights in August 1835, mobs of angry Baltimoreans ransacked the palatial homes of the bank's managers and trustees. The bankers, many believed, had robbed thousands of people of everything that mattered most: wages earned through years of toil; funds that provided support for their dependents; securities that ensured a comfortable future. Order was not restored until a group of impromptu soldiers led by an aging war hero gained control of the ... Read More

  • World Wide Enough: Historiography, Imagination, and Stagecraft
    • Abstract: Is Hamilton good history? Or is this the wrong question? Hamilton: An American Musical is both an intriguing and imperfect vehicle for understanding the history of the American Revolutionary era. The show is grounded in learned interpretation of archival sources. The show's writer, Lin-Manuel Miranda, drew extensively from Ron Chernow's well-researched biography, Alexander Hamilton. He and his co-creators also researched primary sources, quote from them extensively in the libretto, and use facsimiles of them on stage. Finally, the creators consulted other works to get a sense of historical context, while adding references to hip-hop, musical theater, films about the Revolutionary era, and other sources.1At the same ...

  • Comment: "Fatal Convergence in the Kingdom of God"
    • Abstract: When the minister Steven Chapin of Maine addressed his fellow Baptists in 1841, he referenced a logic of American providential destiny that by then had become standard evangelical fare: "Why should God have a country so extensive, so fertile, and occupying the most favorable position . . . unless it be his design to make us eminently instrumental in accomplishing his purposes of mercy?"1 His rhetoric encompassed a heady but toxic mix of religious righteousness, geographical entitlement, and intractable missionary zeal that would justify all manner of accomplishments and atrocities, including the repeated displacement, enslavement, and cultural destruction of native peoples; the centuries-long captivity of Africans ...

  • Nat Turner and the Rising in Southampton County by Jr. David F.
           Allmendinger (review)
    • Abstract: For generations, the story of Nat Turner, the slave rebel of Southampton County, Virginia, has challenged historical narrators to weave a coherent story from thin strands of sparse source material. This has resulted in seamless narratives, such as Stephen Oates's Fires of Jubilee: Nat Turner's Fierce Rebellion (1975), as well as magisterial furor, such as that occasioned by the novel that William Styron titled after the rebellion's key source, The Confessions of Nat Turner (1967). The real Turner has remained obscure, however. Kenneth S. Greenberg's fine collection of essays, Nat Turner: A Slave Rebellion in History and Memory (Oxford, UK, 2004) went far in offering correctives. But, as Charles Burnett ably ... Read More

  • The First U.S. History Textbooks: Constructing and Disseminating the
           American Tale in the Nineteenth Century by Barry Joyce (review)
    • Abstract: Barry Joyce has written a remarkable, timely, necessary, and fun book about early U.S. history textbooks. He has taken what might have been a boring slog through outdated texts and brought them to life. Packed full of evidence and insight, Joyce's narrative helps us see how the American creation story came into being. He does for the American narrative what Jeffrey Pasley in The Tyranny of Printers: Newspaper Politics in the Early American Republic (Charlottesville, VA, 2001) did for political parties, looking closely at the often ignored textbook authors who, in ways that are sometimes less than pristine, assembled a national story that, in time, became The Story.Most contemporary scholars of American textbooks ...

  • Comment: Borderlands of Violence
    • Abstract: This is a complex, daring, and humane article. Professors Gordon and Shipps have managed to evince scholarly ambition while avoiding any evidence of academic pretension. They have struck a delicate balance, doing the historian's work of struggling to understand even the most horrifying episodes from the past, embracing empathy but not sympathy for morally compromised subjects, without ever shading into the voyeuristic practices of recent studies of violence that sometimes seem to flirt with pornographic fascination. And they have crafted work that overflows with memorable prose, sentences and turns of phrase that lingered with me long after I finished reading, as well as an architecture that, in my view, packs a ...

  • Founding Sins: How a Group of Antislavery Radicals Fought to Put Christ
           into the Constitution by Joseph S. Moore (review)
    • Abstract: Founding Sins, by Joseph S. Moore, looks at the American outgrowths of Scotland's covenanting sects, those Presbyterians who split off from the established Church of Scotland and adhered to Scotland's seventeenth-century national covenants—the National Covenant of 1638 and the Solemn League and Covenant with England five years later. In those documents, Scots Presbyterians committed themselves to maintain the true religion at home and to reform the Church of England according to "the example of the best Reformed Churches." Most Scots would eventually abandon those commitments either at the Restoration or the "Glorious" Revolution. But a remnant retained their commitment to the documents and to the ideal of a ...

  • Great Lakes Creoles: A French-Indian Community on the Northern
           Borderlands, Prairie du Chien, 1750–1860 by Lucy Eldersveld Murphy
           (review)
    • Abstract: In this study, Lucy Eldersveld Murphy examines how the Creoles of Prairie du Chien, located at the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers, shaped and experienced the community's incorporation into the United States. With its origins as a Meskwaki (or Fox) village, Prairie du Chien emerged as an outpost of the French fur trade and grew into an important fur-trade center that served a diverse Indigenous population. By the end of the eighteenth century, a Creole town had taken root there, with a multi-ethnic population comprised primarily of the descendants of Indigenous women and Francophone men. It was, as Murphy points out, one of many such towns scattered across the Great Lakes region, in which ... Read More

  • Privateers of the Americas: Spanish American Privateering from the United
           States in the Early Republic by David Head, and: Privateering: Patriots
           and Profits in the War of 1812 by Faye M. Kert (review)
    • Abstract: With privateering—the state licensing of individuals to wage war at sea against declared enemies—mostly an anomaly in the contemporary world, it is easy to overlook its significance to past conflict. And yet this tactic, typically a weapon of weak powers unable to construct their own navies, was absolutely central to the military struggles for independence of the western hemisphere's young republics. But privateering was also about so much more than mere penury. Claiming the right to authorize commerce raiding was an important marker of legitimacy and self-determination for emerging nations in North and South America. To issue letters of marque was to stake a claim for the legal right to do so; indeed ... Read More

  • Liberty's Prisoners: Carceral Culture in Early America by Jen Manion
           (review)
    • Abstract: Liberty's Prisoners, by Jen Manion, offers an expansive examination of penal reform in early republican Philadelphia. A firm work of social history, the book explores the lives and experiences of male and (later) female reformers as well as black, immigrant, and poor (native-born) white women and men within and beyond the prison. Manion locates the prison's post-Revolution emergence in male social elites' anxiety over rebellious servants, workers, blacks, and women, who demanded the freedom promised to them in the Revolution. Officials forced these groups into labor as public punishment or into the prison, workhouse, or almshouse, which effectively reinforced blacks' and poor whites' past with slavery or enforced ...

  • American Antiquities: Revisiting the Origins of American Archaeology by
           Terry A. Barnhart (review)
    • Abstract: Anthropologists have too often depicted their pre-professional ancestors in ways that encourage readers to take them less seriously than they deserve.1 The value of Terry A. Barnhart's revisitation is that it gives scholars a nuanced history of how early researchers utilized the methods and information at hand to reach their conclusions about American antiquity, conclusions he contends were often more rational and at times more accurate than current anthropologists are comfortable believing.Barnhart begins by pointing out that some of the first European attempts to come to terms with the ancient mounds were not too erroneous. For instance, when the Soto expedition crossed through the Mississippian world in the ... Read More

  • The Founders and the Idea of a National University: Constituting the
           American Mind by George Thomas (review)
    • Abstract: In 1795, George Washington famously pledged to donate $20,000 worth of stock in the Potomac River Company to fund a national university. As its title suggests, George Thomas's The Founders and the Idea of a National University is about the broader vision that lay behind Washington's donation and the widespread support for a national university among the founding generation.Benjamin Rush first proposed a national university in 1787. Later that year the Constitutional Convention considered the idea, but opted not to include it in the final document. The national university reappeared in most early republican plans for education reform and drew support from the first six presidents. Congress even considered the idea ... Read More

  • Holy Nation: The Transatlantic Quaker Ministry in an Age of Revolution by
           Sarah Crabtree (review)
    • Abstract: In Holy Nation, Sarah Crabtree argues that Quakers responded to budding nationalism in the United States and Europe during the age of revolutions by embracing a theology of Zion. As she does so, she provides an important contribution to the ongoing discussion of religion and nationalism. By examining an outsider group, one that challenged state power and maintained a transnational identity, Crabtree offers insights on the role of religion in the tumultuous years between the 1750s and 1820s. During these years, Quakers began referring to themselves as a Holy Nation. This was, Crabtree argues, a "theological, political, and emotional response" to the times (4). Through their embrace of Zion, Quakers asserted a ... Read More

  • Building the Empire State: Political Economy in the Early Republic by
           Brian Phillips Murphy (review)
    • Abstract: We need more books like Brian Murphy's study of the politics of economic development in New York during the early republic. Most histories of the period, to the extent they examine economic topics at all, focus on the national level—on the early finances of the federal government, controversies over the First and Second Banks of the United States, national debates over internal improvements, and rising sectional tension over the tariff and the expansion of slavery. The recent surge of interest in the history of capitalism has done little to shift that focus. Yet, at the same time, it is well known that the policies that mattered most for economic development during this period were the work of the states. It was ... Read More

  • Frontier Democracy: Constitutional Conventions in the Old Northwest by
           Silvana R. Siddali (review)
    • Abstract: By the time the states of the Old Northwest were formed, there was a long constitutional tradition on which their founders could draw. Beginning in the Revolutionary era, the eastern states had discarded their colonial charters and drafted constitutions reflecting the experimentation in political thought brought by independence. Pennsylvania, with its unicameral legislature, was the most famous example of a state that was held to have taken the lessons of the American Revolution against executive power too much to heart. Whether one subscribes to the thesis that the United States Constitution marked a counter-revolution against the excesses of legislative and democratic power, the document did create a system of ...

  • The Prophet and the Reformer: The Letters of Brigham Young and Thomas L.
           Kane ed. by Matthew J. Grow and Ronald W. Walker (review)
    • Abstract: Thomas Kane and Brigham Young were not natural friends. Kane was a Philadelphia Democrat born into a wealthy family. He had a reforming spirit, and he was constantly weak from illness. Kane opposed injustice and inequality, whether in the form of religious persecution, slavery, or capital punishment. Throughout his life, he also sought religious fulfillment, but Kane never found comfort in institutional religion. Young was his mirror opposite. Born into rougher circumstances, this Mormon leader lived his life on the edges of society. Young embraced an upstart faith, preached it to the ends of the earth, and assumed the mantle of leadership after the death of its founder, Joseph Smith. When all seemed lost, he acted ... Read More

  • The "Colored Hero" of Harper's Ferry: John Anthony Copeland and the War
           Against Slavery by Steven Lubet (review)
    • Abstract: John Brown's body may lie moldering in the grave, but the militant abolitionist and his October 1859 raid on Harpers Ferry are alive and well in modern scholarship.1 Recent works have cast Brown as an idealistic revolutionary who fought for racial equality, albeit through controversial means. The historiography, however, overlooks the other participants in the Brown raid.2 Legal scholar Steven Lubet here expands our knowledge of the Brown cadre with a biography of the black raider John Anthony Copeland. Born free in North Carolina in 1834, Copeland moved as a child with his family to Oberlin, Ohio, and soon became a mainstay in the abolitionist community. He was inculcated in the "tenets of nonviolence" practiced ... Read More

  • Free Labor: The Civil War and the Making of an American Working Class by
           Mark A. Lause (review)
    • Abstract: A curious gap lies at the intersection of labor history and Civil War history. Except for its role in the New York City Draft Riots, labor activism during the war years has received relatively little attention from Civil War historians; while in labor histories, workers have tended to morph into soldiers for the duration of the war, bracketed by their antebellum and post-war labor struggles. Of course, a labor issue—slavery—lies at the heart of the Civil War, but it is treated as such mostly in terms of the labor shortage incurred by slave owners when their slaves decided to become rebels, fugitives, "contrabands," or Union recruits; few have looked at slaves' actions themselves as labor activism. Mark A. Lause has ... Read More
