  • Radical Hospitality and Political Intimacy in Grahamite Boardinghouses,
           1830–1850
    • Abstract: After enduring three days of crowded steamboats, segregated cars, and rutted roads, three hundred travel-weary abolitionists filed slowly toward their appointed meeting place in May of 1840 only to meet a menacing crowd. Residents of New York City's fourth ward lined Franklin Street to jeer the unwelcome arrivals. Familiar with such episodes, the antislavery delegation from New England moved with practiced calm toward St. John's Hotel. Urban boardinghouses overflowed with reformers during each anniversary week in the 1830s and 1840s, inundating the scarce lodging spaces otherwise accessible to abolitionists. Added to these usual pressures, the Garrisonian contingent also anticipated an exceptionally ugly battle ... Read More

  • The Reign of Error: North American Information Politics and the French
           Revolution, 1789–1795
    • Abstract: "It was as if the French Revolution took place in Canada," remembered the Canadian radical Henri-Antoine Mézière. After the eruption of what would become the French Revolution in 1789, Mézière described how Canadians would assemble "in the towns in small groups, tell each other about the latest news received, rejoice with each other when the news is favorable to the French and grieve (but not desperately) when it is unfavorable." Most Canadians held deep ties to France, and their participation in the French empire remained in living memory. Likewise, the inhabitants of the United States felt a kinship for their recent allies in the American war for independence and enthusiastically celebrated the early French ... Read More

  • Reclaiming a Revolutionary Past: War Veterans, Pensions, and the Struggle
           for Recognition
    • Abstract: In March 1818, Congress passed into law a bill that seemed to mark a watershed moment in the contest over public memory of the Revolutionary War. The Pension Act finally recognized and rewarded the services of rank-and-file war veterans from the conflict that gave birth to the new nation. Introduced by President James Monroe—a former Continental Army officer himself—the Pension Act was hailed as "an auspicious circumstance," by one Congressional Representative. It was "gratifying evidence of the re-connexion of public feeling with the principles of the Revolution."1Historians have generally seen the Pension Act of 1818 as a marker of a transformation in public sentiment over the memory of the Revolutionary War. In ... Read More

  • Prejudice for Profit: Escaped Nun Stories and American Catholic Print
           Culture
    • Abstract: During the sweltering summer of 1834, a gang of working-class men—brickmakers, sailors, apprentices, and firemen—surrounded the Ursuline convent in Charlestown, Massachusetts. The crowd, acting on rumor that Sister Mary St. John Harrison "has been secreted or abducted" to Canada against her will, threatened to burn the convent to the ground unless she was released. When Harrison did not come forward, they set fire to the convent and school with "twelve nuns, and fifty-seven female scholars" inside. Newspapers from Maine to Maryland reported how the rioters stole the Mount Benedict ciborium, smashed the sisters' expensive musical instruments, and converted the personal library of Boston's Bishop Fenwick into fuel ...

  • Introduction: Continental History and the American Revolution in DuVal and
           Taylor
    • Abstract: Continental history is not new. Historians have applied a continental lens to the study of early America since the days of Francis Parkman, Frederick Jackson Turner, and Herbert Bolton. While the approach may have deep historiographical roots, important recent works have turned to continental history with fresh eyes to reinterpret the American Revolution with a more expansive geography in mind. Two works have garnered significant attention in this regard: Kathleen DuVal's Independence Lost: Lives on the Edge of the American Revolution and Alan Taylor's American Revolutions: A Continental History, 1750–1804.The review editors of the JER solicited three review essays from prominent scholars in the field to ask them ...

  • Going Continental' Romantic Transnationalism and Contemporary
           Interpretation of the American Revolution
    • Abstract: The twenty-first century's second decade has been defined by conflict between those who would find meaning in nations and national identity and those who believe in a global community or globalism. The resulting clashes fill our news outlets and shape electoral politics in many societies, including our own. It is a struggle that has permeated many aspects of contemporary life and seems unlikely to end soon.A division that parallels this conflict is evident in the study of the American Revolution.

  • New Ways Out: Reaching Beyond the Academy and the Coast
    • Abstract: Although Kathleen DuVal's Independence Lost focuses on the Gulf Coast, while Alan Taylor's American Revolutions tackles the entire American Revolution, the two overlap more than enough to merit comparison. Both seek to complicate our collective memory of Patriots fighting Redcoats by also seeking to convey the perspectives of Loyalists, African Americans, women (kindling hopes that the upcoming sestercentennnial will also be a sistercentennnial), and Native Americans. The friendly ghost of Richard White looms over both authors, each of whom responded to his Middle Ground in the title of a previous book, Taylor's Divided Ground and DuVal's Native Ground. Like White, DuVal calls her chapter on the 1780s ... Read More

  • A Politician Thinking: The Creative Mind of James Madison by Jack N.
           Rakove (review)
    • Abstract: In Jack N. Rakove's new book on James Madison, readers are promised insight not so much into Madison's thought, but into his way of thinking. The effort to explore how Madison thought, argued, and evolved provides a welcome intervention in the scholarship of a relatively lesser-studied founder.Rakove stresses Madison's unique status as a political thinker who wrote strikingly little "for publication or persuasion." (5) Throughout the book, Rakove draws upon Madison's correspondence and notes to show how his ideas developed over time. For example, a letter to Caleb Wallace in the wake of Madison's battle against the religious assessment bill and in favor of the Bill for Religious Freedom in Virginia was "the first ... Read More

  • Original Intents: Hamilton, Jefferson, Madison, and the American Founding
           by Andrew Shankman (review)
    • Abstract: Hamilton, Jefferson, and Madison were all good republicans, united in their commitment to American independence. Their collaboration culminated in the ratification of Madison's Constitution, Andrew Shankman writes in his succinct and engaging account of the founding, only to collapse with the inauguration of the new federal government and implementation of Treasury Secretary Hamilton's controversial financial system. Hamilton, Madison, and Jefferson agreed that "the national government had to gain the power to tax, regulate trade, and enact laws that the states would have to obey" (15). But that agreement disguised fundamental disagreements about the constitution and character of a modern republic that would erupt ... Read More

  • Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and the British Challenge to Republican
           America, 1783–1795 by Michael Schwarz (review)
    • Abstract: A little more than a decade ago, Michael Schwarz published in these pages a groundbreaking article, which argued that it was Alexander Hamilton and not James Madison who shifted his position on relations with Great Britain after the ratification of the Constitution. In Federalist 11, Hamilton had supported the idea of using discriminating tariffs against the British to coerce commercial concessions. When Madison attempted to put these policies into place in 1789 and the early 1790s, Hamilton balked, coddled up to the British, and insisted on treating the British on par with other foreign powers. He hoped to thereby avoid a trade war and sought to guarantee a dependable revenue stream. Thomas Jefferson, James ... Read More

  • First Ladies of the Republic: Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, Dolley
           Madison, and the Creation of an Iconic American Role by Jeanne E. Abrams
           (review)
    • Abstract: America's founding fathers have long been the focus of biographers, but over the past few decades, scholars have used the insights of women's history to examine the lives of the founders' wives. Jeanne E. Abrams's First Ladies of the Republic draws together recent historiography on women and politics, biographies, and published correspondence to create the first monograph to address America's earliest first ladies collectively. Abrams argues that Martha Washington, Abigail Adams, and Dolley Madison all contributed to the development of the role of first lady, each building on her predecessor. Telling their stories together allows Abrams to show clearly how the women influenced one another and identify each woman's ... Read More

  • Surviving Slavery in the British Caribbean by Randy M. Browne (review)
    • Abstract: Colonial Berbice, the subject of Randy Browne's exceptional new book, was a hellish place. Rain pelted down incessantly, flooding the low-lying lands that lined the Berbice River. The scorching heat, rising to 90°F in the summer, made the waterlogged colony a steaming inferno. Dutch colonists forced almost five thousand enslaved people to toil for them in this hostile environment during the eighteenth century. But it would be the British, who conquered Berbice in 1802, who would transform the river into a true plantation colony by importing tens of thousands of captive Africans. Ambitious planters forced them to drain swamps, clear tropical forests, and plant sugar, coffee, and cotton. Wading up to their knees in ... Read More

  • Warner Mifflin: Unflinching Quaker Abolitionist by Gary B. Nash (review)
    • Abstract: Gary B. Nash's biography of the indefatigable Warner Mifflin aims to place the almost forgotten Quaker activist at the center of a revised account of abolitionism during the Revolutionary era. The nearly seven-foot-tall, peripatetic Mifflin cast his shadow across debates about slavery in the late eighteenth century, while embracing a standard of personal conduct toward his own former slaves that shields him from the charges of hypocrisy (and worse) that bedevil the reputations of his founding-father contemporaries. He pioneered practices—the responsibility to make restitution to the formerly enslaved and to aid runaways in their journey northward to freedom—that would have put him in the abolitionist vanguard of ...

  • The Burr Conspiracy: Uncovering the Story of an Early American Crisis by
           James E. Lewis (review)
    • Abstract: In his 1947 article, "Aaron Burr and the Historians," Julius W. Pratt wrote, "The time has come when it should be possible to form something like a definite estimate of Aaron Burr."1 Three-quarters of a century later, we are no closer to "a definite estimate" of the New York politician, third vice president, killer of a current pop-culture phenomenon, and possible traitor. Like those of their earlier counterparts, the most recent biographies of Burr—by Nancy Isenberg and David O. Stewart—offer no consensus, particularly regarding his conspiracy to either invade Mexico, lead the West to secede, or both. Nevertheless, they are both in agreement about its significance, with Isenberg referring to the conspiracy as a ... Read More

  • Birthright Citizens: A History of Race and Rights in Antebellum America by
           Martha S. Jones (review)
    • Abstract: Birthright Citizens is an important, path-breaking study that brings readers deep into the subject explored in Henry Louis Gates Jr., et al., The Oxford Handbook of African American Citizenship (New York, 2012). Martha S. Jones's eight concise, gracefully written chapters reveal the complexities of citizenship among free blacks, from the 1790s through adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868. Although Baltimore and Maryland supply her primary focus, the reach of her study includes the entire United States. Jones takes William Yates's little-known Rights of Colored Men to Suffrage, Citizenship, and Trial by Jury (Philadelphia, 1838) as her point of departure. Yates, a white New York abolitionist, supplied ... Read More

  • Democracy's Schools: The Rise of Public Education in America by Johann N.
           Neem (review)
    • Abstract: A short preface opens Democracy's Schools and sets the stage for the rich history that unfolds. This book provides readers with a clear impression of the origins and function of public schools in the early American republic. Johann N. Neem argues that public education and American democracy went hand in hand, as issues of localism, curriculum, politics, and diversity loomed large. The Founding Fathers even asserted that a flourishing democracy demanded an educated citizenry. Thomas Jefferson, for instance, believed that neighborliness defined good citizenship and thus white children and youth needed to be taught that value along with basic skills and knowledge in order to fortify the republic. Good citizenship ... Read More

  • Perishing Heathens: Stories of Protestant Missionaries and Christian
           Indians in Antebellum America by Julius H. Rubin (review)
    • Abstract: When I was in third grade, the nuns in my school used to share with us little booklets with stories and pictures of saints. The vast majority of the women included were virgin martyrs. They lived lives of piety and purity, witnessed for their faith, and died young. (The loveliest, in my young opinion, was St. Catherine of Alexandria, whose name I chose for my confirmation, naturally.) Sociologist Julius H. Rubin's Perishing Heathens gives us, in his tales of some of the American missionaries of the early nineteenth century and their Indian converts, what we might think of as the Protestant evangelical version of my Catholic saints. And unless you're keen about suffering for the kingdom of God, it's not a pretty ... Read More

  • The Medical Imagination: Literature and Health in the Early United States
           by Sari Altschuler (review)
    • Abstract: When tasked with writing the history of American medicine, it may seem counterintuitive to say that imagination, genre, and literary devices supply an integral part. We might concede that the body beset by diverse ailments in the early years of the republic provides excellent fodder for fiction. Think, for example, of American gothic thrillers about yellow-fever epidemics, such as Charles Brockden Brown's Arthur Mervyn (1799), or a girl rendered strangely emotionally numb from a snakebite in the womb, such as Oliver Wendell Holmes's Elsie Venner (1861). However, we might also ask, don't such fictions simply reflect medical attitudes of the day about anesthesia or a devastating outbreak' In this monograph, Sari ... Read More

  • Poetry Wars: Verse and Politics in the American Revolution and Early

    • Abstract: I wonder whether readers will recall that in 2003, amid the frenzied runup to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the White House became embroiled in a controversy with some poets. Led by the poet and publisher Sam Hamill (who died in April 2018), a group of authors invited by Laura Bush to participate in a symposium celebrating American poetry promised to use the proceedings as an opportunity to protest the government's warmongering, which resulted in the First Lady calling off the event. The "Poets Against the War Movement" subsequently prompted a surge of popular interest in the roles poems play during times of public crisis. If the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, elicited a discussion about poetry's power to ... Read More

In Brooklyn's Renaissance: Commerce, Culture, and Community in the Nineteenth-Century Atlantic World, Melissa Meriam Bullard reminds us that, for some Brooklynites, that cultural tradition dates back almost two centuries to a time before the then-independent city was consolidated into New York City. This substantial new book focuses on the "mid-nineteenth century when a core of wealthy commercial men and their families … created a cultural renaissance in their adopted city. Working together they laid the groundwork for Brooklyn's modern cultural ... Read More

  • Bending Their Way Onward: Creek Indian Removal in Documents ed. by
           Christopher D. Haveman (review)
    • Abstract: The shadow of Indian Removal hangs over American history. Still, conventional histories of our nation rarely account for Indian Removal, and most simply elide it and American Indians altogether or offer only brief introductions to Native America before moving to the Euro American segment of our history. The reasons for this are confounding and complex, but generally speaking, the story of Indian Removal, and indeed of Indian affairs in general, reveals an ugly side to the American experience and challenges much about the American meta-narrative and the quest for democracy. Hence their absence in our historical consciousness.In recent years, though, a handful of historians have begun turning a contemporary ... Read More

  • The Second Seminole War and the Limits of American Aggression by C. S.
           Monaco (review)
    • Abstract: The Second Seminole War and the Limits of American Aggression tells the story of the Second Seminole War (1835–1842) in a vibrant and engaging manner. Addressing not only military topics but also environmental, medical, political, and social issues, C. S. Monaco takes an interdisciplinary approach to the conflict, which he characterizes as "the boldest and most enduring armed struggle by eastern Indians against the forces of the United States" (1).Monaco devotes six of the eleven chapters to a chronological account of the Florida war. In the first chapter, he provides background information about events leading up to the Seminole removal treaties of 1832 and 1833. The author then devotes Chapters 3 through 7 to a ... Read More

  • Embracing Dissent: Political Violence and Party Development in the United

    • Abstract: Jeffrey S. Selinger has written a timely book that describes the development of U.S. political parties from 1783 to the end of the First World War. He sketches out a history from a beginning point decidedly hostile to the existence of political parties to an endpoint where political leaders and scholars had made peace with them. Many of these scholars also had come to regret the unwieldy nature of an atavistic American constitutional design that made "responsible party" governance difficult, if not impossible.In his first chapter, Selinger rehearses much of the argument he will advance in the rest of the work as he describes the risks avoided by nineteenth-century political elites as they sought to prevent violence ...

  • A Kingdom Divided: Evangelicals, Loyalty, and Sectionalism in the Civil
           War Era by April E. Holm (review)
    • Abstract: How does a religious group remain in the world, but not of the world' This question drives April Holm's study of the ways that evangelicals in the Border States negotiated the crises of the Civil War era. Examining the three largest evangelical denominations—Baptists, Methodists, and Presbyterians—she traces how these groups worked out the relationship between religion, morality, and politics in a contested region. Holm's main historical contribution is uncovering the way these Border evangelicals made it their business to avoid conflict by separating religion and politics. They fashioned a theology of spirituality and political neutrality that argued that politics had no place in the pulpit. This politics of ... Read More

  • Making an Antislavery Nation: Lincoln, Douglas, and the Battle over
           Freedom by Graham A. Peck (review)
    • Abstract: For Graham A. Peck, Abraham Lincoln's election as president in 1860 is "perhaps the single-most vital story about freedom's preservation in America" (2). In order to explain the rise and triumph of the Republican Party and antislavery politics, Peck focuses on antebellum Illinois as a state that offers a unique view of a national conflict between slavery and freedom. In his focus on this single state, Peck claims to offer a sweeping reinterpretation of the rise of antislavery politics in the early United States. Scholars of the subject, however, likely will find Peck's study a well-written account of the triumph of antislavery nationalism if not a cutting-edge monograph that reshapes the field.Peck posits that ...

Malavasic's narrative, which spans the years 1837 to 1861, recounts how a tight-knit group of Congressmen who lived together on F Street in Washington, DC—David Atchison of Missouri, Andrew Butler of South Carolina, and Robert Hunter and James Mason of Virginia—came to play a decisive role in proposing and defending the most controversial element of the Kansas–Nebraska Act: the repeal of the Missouri Compromise's 36' 30" line, which banned slavery ...

  • Abraham Lincoln and Karl Marx in Dialogue by Allan Kulikoff (review)
    • Abstract: Ten years ago, an internet search for "Marx and Lincoln" yielded dozens of conspiracy websites that argued that Marx and Lincoln were working together to Stalinize the United States. Such websites highlighted Lincoln quotes that sounded "communistic" and were, ironically, purloined from the literature of the 1930s Popular Front left that had, like other left-wing groups before them, tried to appropriate Lincoln's memory. The most damning evidence of a Lincoln–Marx cabal, according to these conspiracy theories, was their correspondence.The same internet search today turns up radically different results. The conspiracy websites still exist—a top hit is David Duke explaining a Marx–Lincoln conspiracy—but they are ... Read More

Like several books on the memory of Civil War battles, Stoltz's explores politicized memories and public memory through memorialization at the battle site, but he adds the long history of popular culture, extending his study to the present day. The historiographical message is not surprising—that memory has been contested and has waxed and waned and changed with the times—but Stoltz's treatment of the range and variety of ... Read More
