  • Fortune, Fame & Desire: Promoting the Self in the Long Nineteenth Century
           by Sharon Hartman Strom (review)
    • Abstract: In Chapter 5 of Fortune, Fame & Desire: Promoting the Self in the Long Nineteenth Century, Sharon Hartman Strom asks her readers to reflect on the "sturdy lad" of Ralph Waldo Emerson's 1841 essay "Self-Reliance" and to consider Harriet Wilson, an African American writer, entrepreneur, and Spiritualist lecturer, as "both a congruent and disruptive example … of what a self-reliant in the mid-nineteenth century could be" (149). This tension is the central focus of Fortune, Fame & Desire, an examination of self-making and self-reliance in the long nineteenth century.Fortune, Fame & Desire weaves together over a dozen biographies to capture the different spheres of opportunity for nineteenth-century individuals to ...

  • The Rabbi's Atheist Daughter: Ernestine Rose, International Feminist
           Pioneer by Bonnie S. Anderson (review)
    • Abstract: In recent years, multifaceted treatments of antebellum women's rights have transformed a narrative once dominated by Seneca Falls. A renewed turn to biography among historians of American women in general has further added to knowledge of activists and ideology. Like recent treatments of Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton (among others), Bonnie S. Anderson's biography of the remarkable Ernestine Potowska Rose explores a once-famous activist and utilizes her life to offer new insights about the movement for rights in antebellum America and beyond. Anderson's engaging biography offers a transatlantic portrait of Rose's attempts to argue throughout her life that women's rights are human rights and ... Read More

  • Archives of Labor: Working-Class Women and Literary Culture in the
           Antebellum United States by Lori Merish (review)
    • Abstract: Lori Merish's Archives of Labor offers a nuanced and thoroughly researched analysis of antebellum American working-class women's engagement with literary culture—not only as figures represented within various texts, but as readers, writers, and purchasers of printed matter. "Antebellum workingwomen's subjectivities and desires," Merish argues, took on "complex, often contradictory forms" (10). Even as working-class and poor women came to represent economic exploitation and suffering—poverty's downward spiral—in mainstream discourse, through such figures as the prostitute, the seamstress, the widow, and the factory operative, female labor activists and other working-class women authors, Merish shows, "crafted ...

  • Lunsford Lane and Me: Life-Writings and Public Histories of an Enslaved
           Other
    • Abstract: Standing in the quiet of the place, breathing slowly, I sought the plot in which Lunsford Lane lies: old New York Bay Cemetery in Jersey City, P North section, row N, grave 7. Scholars had given up on tracing Lane, many identifying his death as "circa 1863." No one had known that he lived until 1879 and had died alone in a tenement house in Greenwich Village. But I had found him and his wife, Martha, almost. My eyes surveyed the landscape. I admired the lone, magnificent oak before me, surrounded by tombstones that cropped up like mushrooms, different heights and widths, some upright, others aslant, gradually clustering in the shaded northwestern corner of P North section. Most are marble or granite with clearly ... Read More

  • Modern Gratitude: Patriarchy, Romance, and Recrimination in the Early
           Republic
    • Abstract: In early 1802, an enraged Luther Martin put pen to paper in order to expose the true character of a new enemy, Richard Raynal Keene. He intended to publish for all to read—at least all in his home-town of Baltimore and its environs—the story of how a trusted fellow gentleman had turned against Martin and revealed himself to be a "monster." He entitled the eventually five-part work Modern Gratitude. Over the previous decade, Martin, a member of the Constitutional Convention and the attorney general of Maryland, and many other politically minded men had regularly turned to newspapers, circulated letters, and pamphlets to wage paper duels in the court of public opinion over who had acted honorably or not in political ...

  • Dangerous Alliances in the New Mexico Borderlands: Charles Bent and the
           Limits of Family Networks
    • Abstract: The family was asleep when the Mexicans and Pueblo Indians came in the chill early morning hours of January 19, 1847. They pounded on the door, clambered onto the roof, and shouted for the family's Ute servant woman to let them in. When Charles Bent, an Anglo American trader and the territorial governor, confronted them and demanded to know the meaning of the assembly, the crowd shouted back, "we want your head, gringo"—they had come to kill him. While Bent talked, his wife and other women frantically dug at the house's adobe walls, hollowing out a passageway into an adjoining room using an iron cooking spit and soup ladle. Then the crowd opened fire. Two arrows struck Bent, who staggered back into the front room ... Read More

  • Introduction: Race, Politics, and Culture in the Age of Jacksonian
           "Democracy"
    • Abstract: During the secession crisis, Americans throughout the Free States yearned for "an hour of Jackson," convinced that a dose of Old Hickory's indomitable resolve would stanch treason and save the Union. White southerners also invoked Jackson's malleable political legacy. On July 4, 1856, Augustus E. Maxwell, a Jacksonian Democrat from Florida, eulogized the Old Hero for his dedication to states' rights and his faith in the "sufficiency of man for self-government." Ever since his presidency, diverse Americans have likewise craved an hour of Jackson and embraced unpolished outsiders who repeat his promise to purge the republic of what Maxwell called the "pampered minions of power." The Jacksonian approach to politics as ... Read More

  • Labor Abolition and the Politics of White Victimhood: Rethinking the
           History of Working-Class Racism
    • Abstract: Since the remarkable election of President Donald Trump in 2016, there have been frequent reassessments of American political history, with particular attention focused on the group that allegedly threw the election to Trump, the so-called "white working class." One particular moment for reconsideration has been the election of Andrew Jackson, the president sometimes offered as a precedent to Trump, a populist disruptor who galvanized an emergent cohort of white working-class men into a new governing coalition. This was the moment, as some historians have suggested, when white working-class racism was born, a process in which northern wage earners were racialized as "white slaves," an identity of white victimhood ...

  • Native Suffrage: Race, Citizenship, and Dakota Indians in the Upper
           Midwest
    • Abstract: Of 108 citizens from the Mendota, Minnesota Territory, voting precinct who cast their votes in 1852, at least fifteen were Indians of mixed-ancestry—fourteen Dakota and one Ottawa Indian. Thirteen more were white men with Dakota families, meaning that over 25 percent of the voters in this election were Indians or were the heads of Indian households. This racial and political situation did not fit the typical mold of Jacksonian America. Mixed-ancestry Indians had voted in elections in the upper Midwest since at least 1824, and as early as 1840, when the Dakota Indian Theophilus LaChapelle was elected to the Wisconsin Territorial Legislature, Indians of mixed ancestry exercised political power in the Upper Midwest. ...

  • Sentimental Racism and Sympathetic Paternalism: Feeling Like a Jacksonian
    • Abstract: In 1814 Andrew Jackson performed a deed that biographers often interpret as evidence that he felt pity or empathy toward Native Americans. Jackson rescued a Creek boy orphaned during the battle of Horseshoe Bend, reportedly gathering him from his dead mother's arms. Jackson adopted "Lyncoya" and sent him to be raised among his family, noting to his wife Rachel that he felt an "unusual sympathy" for the orphan. What could possibly explain this action—made by the same man who prosecuted the war that orphaned this boy in the first place' Historian Mark Cheathem points out the paradox: "Jackson's actions toward Native Americans during this period were by any definition contradictory. On the one hand, he endorsed the ... Read More

  • Nature, Religion, and the Market in Jacksonian Political Thought
    • Abstract: Jacksonian Democrats claimed to speak on behalf of America's producing classes, against its economic elites. Voting patterns lent some support to this self-description: On balance, Democratic candidates in the 1830s and 1840s drew their strongest support from rural areas, away from the commercial arteries and towns, and among the urban working classes. It is highly significant for the course of American political thought that this largely rural, populist party laid claim to the ideal of market competition and free trade as one of its fundamental political commitments.In Europe, the urban and commercial interests who pushed for economic liberalization often found themselves opposed by conservative rural populations ...

  • Tocqueville and the Legal Culture of Jacksonian America
    • Abstract: In 1851, Thomas Hart Benton wrote to Martin Van Buren in shock. He had just read Democracy in America, was outraged at Tocqueville's picture of American democracy, and intended to correct the Frenchman's "errors." The British journalist Henry Reeve had translated the two volumes of Democracy in America immediately after their publication in French (1835 and 1840), and by the time Benton read it, the book had been widely acclaimed on both continents. Providing an alternative account of the Jacksonian years, Benton believed, was an urgent task for the Democratic party, for Tocqueville was already "the authority on American democracy in Europe, and with the federalists here, and will be with our posterity if they know ...

  • Afterword: The History and Legacy of Jacksonian Democracy
    • Abstract: Andrew Jackson is in vogue again, and for all the wrong reasons, to legitimize current political positions rather than understand the history of the man and his times. As this issue of the Journal of the Early Republic showcases, the history and legacy of Jacksonian Democracy are far more contradictory than recent populist invocations of him would have us believe. Bradley J. Birzer's In Defense of Andrew Jackson (2018) epitomizes the latter, creating a largely ahistorical, mythical idea of Jackson, his presidency, and his times.1Traditionally, Jacksonian Democracy, including the elimination of property-holding qualifications for voting and an attack on Hamiltonian economic views, was understood to represent the ...

  • The Home Frontier: Households, Gender, and National Expansion in the Early
           Republic
    • Abstract: The classic tale of American expansion measured frontier development as a succession of individual men: "waves" of frontiersmen marching "single file" in a westward "procession of civilization." While frontier mythology depicted the West as a purely masculine realm, erasing gendered relations of power, early American gender ideology actively obscured women's significance beyond the home. Historians of the early American West have spent decades dismantling these myths, recovering the social histories of white and Native women in borderlands regions and illuminating dynamics of gender, sex, and power on the frontier. And yet despite those essential contributions, parts of the field continue to treat women's and ... Read More

           Mailer (review)
    • Abstract: For centuries, European and colonial American governments had supported favored churches, funding them, according them exclusive privileges, and suppressing their rivals. The newly established United States operated according to a different set of rules. By 1791, every state granted the free exercise of religion, while the amended Constitution forbade Congress from making laws respecting religion. It was an epochal change. Yet it did not stop clergymen from meddling in matters of state, nor civil authorities from meddling in matters of faith.The nature of that enduring entanglement is the focus of Spencer W. McBride's probing and sharply reasoned Pulpit and Nation: Clergymen and the Politics of Revolutionary ... Read More

    • Abstract: Steven Bullock and Jane Merritt have given us two beautifully written, deeply researched, and methodologically important books that trace the interconnections between society, politics, and economy in eighteenth-century North America. Specifically, they demonstrate how taste and desire, emotions and economy shaped critical developments in American history. Despite their titles, however, only Merritt explores the history of tea and tyranny. Jane Merritt's tightly argued study of the political economy of tea illuminates how American concerns about monopolies and imperial power manifested itself in the rejection and repatriation of tea. She shows how a variety of interpretations of monopoly and free trade ignited the ... Read More

    • Abstract: "The United States was itself an empire before it was a nation," Bernard DeVoto wrote in The Course of Empire (1952), "though it was first a people who had made a society" (391). Edward Larkin's concisely and elegantly written study does not make clear distinctions between people, society, or states, but it does offer a long-overdue application of the insights of historians of the Imperial School to the interpretation of early American literature and painting. Larkin is a literary critic with a secondary interest in art. His argument is that the literary and visual culture of the early republic embraced empire as a way of imagining the not-always-hierarchical connections that tied together the multiple sovereigns ...

  • Indians in the Family: Adoption and the Politics of Antebellum Expansion
           by Dawn Peterson (review)
    • Abstract: It is easy to remember one of the central insights of Second Wave Feminism: "the personal is political." It is much harder to put those words into historical practice. After all, the sources on which historians rely reflect an older configuration, in which politics and statecraft inhabit one plane of importance and visibility, while family life and intimate relations carry on more discreetly. Only in the past generation have scholars found ways beyond, around, or simply through the usual dichotomy. Dawn Peterson's new book is an impressive case in point.Centering on adoption in both a literal and metaphorical sense, Indians in the Family reconsiders the efforts by Choctaws and other southern Indian nations to cope ...

  • Ethnology and Empire: Languages, Literature, and the Making of the North
           American Borderlands by Robert Lawrence Gunn (review)
    • Abstract: In late 1846, Hector Lewis Garrard traveled west on the Taos Trail, settling for two months with the Cheyennes. "For pastime," Garrard wrote in his 1850 book Wah-To-Yah and the Taos Trail, "I began a glossary of the Cheyenne tongue" (62). He pointed at objects and, inquiring as to their names, recorded the responses of his hosts. When Garrard later recited their replies, his efforts were "greeted with lively sallies of laughter" (62). Garrard's hosts thought him a "mah-son-ne—'a fool'" not only for his mispronunciations, but also, as Garrard implies, for the confidence he placed in his anthropological endeavors (62). Though Garrard assumed that his efforts would provide a basis for further intercultural exchange ... Read More

  • Horace Holley: Transylvania University and the Making of Liberal Education
           in the Early American Republic by James P. Cousins (review)
    • Abstract: In his short life from 1781 to 1827, Horace Holley embodied key transitions of the early republic. His father was an unlettered farmer who became a successful merchant and sent all three sons to college. Holley transformed himself from law student to well-placed minister to college president, from Calvinist defender to vague Unitarian, and from urbane New Englander to western booster. But he never updated his elitist tendencies, maintaining a "postpolitical" (217) cultural Federalism that ultimately squeezed him out of Jacksonian Kentucky's populist political culture. Despite missed opportunities, James P. Cousins's Horace Holley is a readable case study of these larger frictions and makes a valuable contribution ... Read More

  • John James Audubon: The Nature of the American Woodsman by Gregory Nobles

    • Abstract: Audubon's fan base has never approached Thoreau's among academics. His genius merits a more generous appraisal by academic historians, a wider and deeper analysis of his writings, and an appreciation of his art as texts as well as works of science and aesthetics. Surely, Audubon's place in the history of the book and publishing is secure as the genius who created the closest thing to a Gutenberg Bible that this nation will likely ever produce. Birds of North America, especially in the elephant edition, is a cathedral among books, a product of unbridled ambition, of hubris on the scale of Orson Welles and Citizen Kane, and that might easily have become Audubon's "The Other Side of the Wind," Welles's infamously ...

  • This Vast Southern Empire: Slaveholders at the Helm of American Foreign
           Policy by Matthew Karp (review)
    • Abstract: Once we thought that slavery was an anachronism in the emerging modern world of the nineteenth century, and that in their gloomy hearts slaveholders knew it. While they fought strenuously and ingeniously to withstand the coming change, the most keen-sighted, like John C. Calhoun, knew that it was an uphill battle, and in the long run likely a losing one. Masters of reaction, prophets of the past, slaveholders struggled mightily to stave off the future. Ultimately they failed and were doomed to fail. The arc of progress, both economic and moral, bent toward liberty.Would that it were so simple. A recent barrage of scholarship challenges this comforting teleology of advancing civilization. Slavery, it argues, was not ... Read More

    • Abstract: "What is this popular sovereignty," asked the Bangor Daily Whig on April 18, 1857, "if under it the Mormons may not keep as many wives as they please' It protects slaveholding, according to democratic doctrine; why not polygamy'" Although the newspaper's equation of slavery with a marriage practice northerners and southerners alike deemed barbaric was deliberately provocative, the question was not without merit. Popular sovereignty is virtually synonymous with the Kansas–Nebraska Act in the historical imagination. But Brent Rogers's welcome study of Mormon struggles for self-governance in Utah Territory reminds readers that Bleeding Kansas wasn't the sole locus in the national debate over the exercise of power in ...

    • Abstract: Wendell Phillips: Social Justice and the Power of the Past recaptures the intellectual acumen, class-defying egalitarianism, and penetrating oratory skills of one of the most prominent nineteenth-century radicals. The authors place Phillips within a larger transatlantic context that encourages readers to examine current social justice issues through a kind of sustained meditation on such a heroic figure. The book opens with a discussion of the heart of Phillips's radicalism: agitation. Philosophical "isms" or social programs were, for Phillips, pragmatic means toward reaching a more extensive and stable democracy, for neither programs nor parchments could replace the agitator. Agitation became his mantra, as he ... Read More

  • Before Dred Scott: Slavery and Legal Culture in the American Confluence,
           1787–1857 by Anne Twitty (review)
    • Abstract: The St. Louis Circuit Court Historical Records Project, an online repository that documents the nearly three hundred freedom suits that appeared in the St. Louis Circuit Court, is a fantastic resource for historians of slavery and the law, and Anne Twitty makes good use of those records in this cogent and deeply researched book. Twitty argues that the proliferation of freedom suits that appeared in the St. Louis Circuit Court was the result of ordinary people's knowledge of the law. Fluid boundaries between slavery and freedom in that region created what she terms a "radical indeterminacy of status," that is, a peculiar mixture of freedom and unfreedom where these seemingly stable categories broke down, allowing ...

  • Man's Better Angels: Romantic Reformers and the Coming of the Civil War by
           Philip F. Gura (review)
    • Abstract: Scholars have remarked on the litany of social experiments, many committed to moral and political reform, which flamed in the early American republic. Alice Felt Tyler's and Ronald Walters's surveys explained mass movements including temperance, school reform, and antislavery as well as the more eccentric phenomena of utopian communities and phrenology. Rooted in Protestant evangelical religion, these reforms reflected Americans' grappling with the country's diversification and expansion and the spread of market forces. Tyler attributed this reform era to Americans' general optimism, predisposing them to be open to change. Walters, conversely, located the reforms' impulse in middle-class Americans' concern about ...
