  • Naming Our African Ancestors: Pushing, and Respecting, the Limits
    • Abstract: Historians of both early America and precolonial West Africa want to know more about the men, women, and children who were enslaved in Africa and brought to America. Each of these individuals had an important story to tell, as we can only glimpse in the rare documented accounts of Venture Smith, Olaudah Equiano, and a handful of others. What were their lives like in Africa, and from which part of the continent did they originate' How, exactly, did they lose their freedom' What factors led to their arrival in South Carolina or New York or elsewhere' How did they survive' And who among us are their descendants' Oral histories in both America and West Africa testify to attempts by descendants to remember lost family ...

  • Fear of a Black Planet: Toward a Diasporic History of the Early Republic
    • Abstract: In an earlier edition of this journal, Jennifer Morgan explored the thorny question of periodization that lay at the heart of both the Society for Historians of the Early Republic and the Journal of the Early Republic. Morgan noted that although her teaching and research regularly cover the lives of African American women living in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, she does not think of herself as a scholar of the early republic. Rather, she sees her work as conversant with histories of "the early Atlantic, or colonial, or antebellum, or eighteenth century, or Civil War, but not early republic." In ... Read More

  • Africa and the Early American Republic: Comments
    • Abstract: The story is familiar. In 1776, a revolution against corruption and fiscal military expansion galvanized action among its participants and political leaders, including boycotts of Atlantic goods and a new agreement no longer to participate in the transatlantic slave trade. The revolution created a state that prioritized a moral and ideological system of government and attempted to renegotiate its commercial relationship to European empires.But this was not the 1776 revolution in North America. It was a jihad in the Upper Senegal region. Its George Washington was Abd al-Qadir Kane, the new Alimaami of the state of Futa Toro. And in 1785, he got the French to agree that they would no longer sell his countrymen into ... Read More

  • "Brothers Gonna Work It Out": Imagining a Black Planet
    • Abstract: I commend the editors of the Journal of the Early Republic for commissioning these provocative essays challenging concepts that are, arguably, the raison d'etre of the journal and SHEAR. By framing the "early republic" through the lens of African and African-descended peoples, some might argue that the crucial project of American nation-building loses its primacy. Yet, as these essays powerfully demonstrate, Africandescended peoples were at the center of American nation-building, even when they were not. The nation's founding fathers excluded the vast majority of black people from full personhood, let alone political participation. For the enslaved, there simply was no "American republic." Nevertheless, African ... Read More

  • Africa in the Early Republic/the Early Republic in Africa
    • Abstract: As the nation commemorates the 400th anniversary of the first recorded sale of Africans into Jamestown, it is obvious even to casual observers that Africa has been present in North American life from the beginnings of English colonization—since Before the Mayflower to borrow Lerone Bennett, Jr.'s famous title. So it's undoubtedly true that Africa was present during the era of the early republic. But, having said that—and this simply reiterates Jason Young's invocation of Jennifer Morgan on chronology—it's important to make some distinctions. On the one hand, Africa was present in the early republic because it has always been present in the societies that have become the United States. Africans and their descendants ... Read More

  • Mapping Distress: Taxation and Insolvency in Virginia, 1782–1790
    • Abstract: Debt and taxes cast a long shadow over the decade following the American Revolution. A sense of uncertainty and impending crisis prevailed amid signs of optimism and nascent potential. The close of the war reopened the nation's ports but the resumption in trade was incomplete. American merchants could no longer trade directly with the West Indies as a consequence of having exited the British mercantile system. While debtors could rejoice that the courts remained closed to British creditors, domestic lenders pressed their own claims for payment. Where Americans had complained that paper money had been too abundant during the war years, they now complained of its scarcity. Deflation magnified the value of debtors' ... Read More

  • The Dutch Crisis of 1787, American Foreign Policy, and the Constitution
    • Abstract: General William Heath, like many of his contemporaries, kept a diary. As he surveyed the world from his home in Roxbury, Massachusetts, his entries moved from local to national and international affairs. In July and August of 1787, he mentioned the crisis in the Netherlands. By September, the Dutch crisis took up more space in Heath's diary. On September 27, 1787, Heath observed that Prussia would "march an army of 60, or 70,000 men to the relief of the Stadtholder." That turned out to be a wild exaggeration. A week later, he noted that Great Britain and Prussia would support the stadtholder, opposed by France. On October 10, Heath believed "that there is some hope of an accommodation of the dispute." The next ... Read More

  • "They Have Exercised Every Art": Ecological Rhetoric, a War of Maps, and
           Cherokee Sovereignty in the Arkansas Valley, 1812–1828
    • Abstract: In 1824, the U.S. Indian agent in Arkansas wrote a surprising report concerning the Cherokees' contested land claims in the Arkansas River Valley. The council of Arkansas Cherokee chiefs had insisted that the agent's report include their Cherokee-made map, a "sketch of the country," showing the full extent of Cherokee territorial claims to the region between the Arkansas and White Rivers. The disputed lands would later encompass the mountains of northwest Arkansas and the prairies of eastern Indian Territory.

  • The Disaffected: Britain's Occupation of Philadelphia during the American
           Revolution by Aaron Sullivan (review)
    • Abstract: Philadelphia and its significance in the American Revolution has been long acknowledged and studied, but the existing scholarship has lacked focus on the period of British occupation and those individuals without strong political attachments. In The Disaffected: Britain's Occupation of Philadelphia during the American Revolution, Aaron Sullivan provides an in-depth, thorough overview of the nine-month occupation of the city and offers a look at individuals whom he terms "disaffected." He defines the term carefully and cautiously in his introduction, noting that these individuals should be best understood as those whose "defining feature was less loyalty to than lack of support or affection for either party in the ...

  • Literature, American Style: The Originality of Imitation in the Early
           Republic by Ezra Tawil (review)
    • Abstract: Plainspoken. Unaffected. Rough and unpolished. Inelegant, but authentic. In the middle of the nineteenth century, American writers would celebrate these as fundamentally American literary traits representing a sharp break with European traditions. Calling himself "an American, one of the roughs," Walt Whitman would promise in Leaves of Grass to embody "an American rude tongue." While Europeans remained mannered, decadent, and artificial, Americans had ostensibly stripped away the excessive ornamentation of gentility and exposed a more honest way of writing.As Ezra Tawil shows in Literature, American Style, these American celebrations of plain, unaffected artlessness were far from a new phenomenon at midcentury: ...

  • Facing Empire: Indigenous Experiences in a Revolutionary Age ed. by Kate
           Fullagar and Michael A. McDonnell (review)
    • Abstract: In Facing Empire: Indigenous Experiences in a Revolutionary Age, editors Kate Fullagar and Michael McDonnell place indigenous peoples at the center of histories of the British Empire during the Age of Revolution (1760–1840). Even indigeneity, the editors observe, is a category born of empire: a shorthand through which colonial officials could distinguish between imperial subjects imported by empire, and those whose residence pre-dated imperial imposition. These essays range from Australia, the West African coast, Pacific Islands, the Great Lakes, the Persian Gulf, the Ohio country, to the Scottish Highlands. The editors facilitate comparisons between diverse indigenous experiences and strategies, and seek to ... Read More

  • Coast-To-Coast Empire: Manifest Destiny and the New Mexico Borderlands by
           William S. Kiser (review)
    • Abstract: One of the most oft-used paintings in U.S. history classrooms is probably John Gast's "American Progress" (1872). For most readers, the image is familiar: An angelic woman in white rises above a scene of U.S. expansion, as American settlers and technological innovations advance across the North American continent and scatter Native Americans and wildlife in their wake. It is usually used as an illustration of "Manifest Destiny," the idea that nineteenth-century Americans believed a continental U.S. nation was god-ordained and thus inevitable, and acted accordingly.1 As an illustration of historical reality, however, this portrait has received much critique in recent decades. Historians have recast U.S. expansion as ... Read More

  • Sarah Gray Cary from Boston to Grenada: Shifting Fortunes of an American
           Family, 1764–1826 by Susan Clair Imbarrato (review)
    • Abstract: Sarah Gray Cary from Boston to Grenada is an intimate portrait of a New England family whose fortunes derived from Caribbean sugar and slavery during the Revolutionary era. Susan Clair Imbarrato follows Sarah Cary as her family's heart, connecting husband and children through her correspondence as they spread across the Atlantic for education and trade.The book is more than a biography. It grapples with the economic, political, and moral struggles that preoccupied the Cary family from their plantation interests in Grenada during the American Revolution, through the 1795 rebellion in the British colony, and beyond. How did the family survive financially in the upheaval of the era' How did they reconcile their ... Read More

  • Escaped Nuns: True Womanhood and the Campaign against Convents in
           Antebellum America by Cassandra L. Yacovazzi (review)
    • Abstract: Cassie Yacovazzi's Escaped Nuns is that wonderful thing: good history that's also a good read. In this lively exploration of antebellum Americans' combination of fascination with and loathing of Catholic nuns and convents, Yacovazzi analyzes texts and tells stories with equal verve, making a persuasive case that "nun hating" was both a significant and a revealing element of antebellum culture.Positioning her work with care, Yacovazzi is, she explains, building on the work of scholars such as Jenny Franchot, Tracy Fessenden, and Marie Anne Pagliarini, all of whom have analyzed "the centrality of sexual deviance in anti-Catholic literature of the antebellum era" (xxi). Yacovazzi has chosen to "focus … entirely on ... Read More

  • The City–State of Boston: The Rise and Fall of an Atlantic Power,
           1630–1865 by Mark Peterson (review)
    • Abstract: The product of decades of labor in the archives, Mark Peterson's The City–State of Boston is a grand achievement. Presenting a unique and powerful interpretation spanning two-and-a-half centuries, Peterson's "biography of a city–state" (21) recovers a vital Atlantic perspective on Boston's geopolitical and intellectual history. He describes Boston as an autonomous early modern Atlantic imperial city, controlling the fortunes of a vast domain, and charts its decline. Those enthralled by the Red Sox and Patriots know the enduring reach of "Boston's" hegemony, but Peterson is focused on the circumstances of its trajectory in the early modern Atlantic world. His book will inspire new thinking about the seventeenth ... Read More

  • Building a Revolutionary State: The Legal Transformation of New York,
           1776–1783 by Howard Pashman (review)
    • Abstract: While significant attention has been devoted to the development of a national system that united the thirteen colonies in rebellion against Great Britain, scholarship has infrequently addressed the experience of individual states shifting from colonial government to semi-stable self-government. No longer colonies, but not yet part of an integrated and independent nation, they were still charged with the task of building a legal system that could administer justice, authority, and order amid ongoing chaos and conflict. Howard Pashman explores the development of such a system in New York during its wartime status as a "revolutionary state." By focusing exclusively on the rebuilding of one state's legal system ...

  • Jefferson's Daughters: Three Sisters, White and Black, in a Young America
           by Catherine Kerrison (review)
    • Abstract: In Jefferson's Daughters, Catherine Kerrison examines an impressive array of historical sources to distinguish the complex lives of Martha Jefferson Randolph, Mary "Maria" Jefferson Eppes, and Harriet Hemings. The former two women, the daughters of Martha Wayles Jefferson, and the latter, the enslaved daughter of Sally Hemings, led lives that diverged greatly from one another. Aimed mainly at a general audience, the book largely explains in three sections—each roughly dedicated to each daughter—the circumstances foisted upon them, and the decisions they made that sometimes challenged social norms.The three sections of the book move from Martha to Maria to Harriet, and correspondingly from the largest primary-source ...

  • Appealing for Liberty: Freedom Suits in the South by Loren Schweninger
           (review)
    • Abstract: Loren Schweninger, the former Project Director and Editor of the Race and Slavery Petitions Project, spent years collecting antebellum-era freedom suit records from state archives and county courthouses across the South. Appealing for Liberty represents the findings of decades of painstaking research and analysis. It seeks to uncover "how, when, and why" African Americans petitioned for their freedom, explores the roles and backgrounds of the lawyers and other southern whites who participated in the suits, and investigates "how judges and juries respond[ed]" to them (3). Drawing on an impressive data set of 2,023 suits (with 4,601 black and Native American plaintiffs) from every slave state and the District of ... Read More

  • Henry Clay: The Man Who Would Be President by James C. Klotter (review)
    • Abstract: Henry Clay has suffered from long periods of scholarly neglect, including a 54-year drought between his two major twentieth-century biographies, published by Glyndon G. Van Deusen in 1937 and Robert V. Remini in 1991.1 In the past decade, however, a flurry of Clay biographies has appeared, along with several broader histories that feature the Kentuckian in a leading role. Do we need more books on Henry Clay' The short answer is yes. Remini's exhaustive cradle-to-grave narrative still offers the most detailed traditional biography, but there is ample room for more tightly focused interpretations of Clay's remarkable career and the context in which it unfolded. Indeed, James C. Klotter's treatment of Clay's futile ... Read More

  • The Panic of 1819: The First Great Depression by Andrew H. Browning
           (review)
    • Abstract: As I write this review in the fall of 2019, little brouhaha has attended the bicentennial of the Panic of 1819, the first nationwide economic catastrophe in U.S. history.1 In contrast, this year's semi-centennial of the first moonwalk involved a simulated rocket launch projected on the Washington Monument. Both events were firsts: one barely remembered but experienced by an entire nation, and the other experienced by one man but commemorated with national pyrotechnics.And yet, for historians of the early American republic, Andrew H. Browning's The Panic of 1819: The First Great Depression should ignite some historiographical fireworks. Browning's book is, in the language of Neil Armstrong, a "giant leap" in our ... Read More

  • Figures of Speech: Six Histories of Language and Identity in the Age of
           Revolutions by Tim Cassedy (review)
    • Abstract: In Figures of Speech, Tim Cassedy examines the political, social, and cultural significance of the view, axiomatic in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, that languages shaped the minds and characters of their speakers. It is a cultural history, informed by the history of the book and media studies, that focuses on the lives of five men and one woman who "put language at the center of their identities and lived out the possibilities of their era's linguistic ideas" in an era of political upheaval (6).The book's first chapter focuses on Nicholas Dufief, a young aristocrat who fled revolution in France and St.-Domingue. Taking refuge in Philadelphia, he established himself as a teacher of French and ... Read More

  • The Genesis of America: U.S. Foreign Policy and the Formation of National
           Identity, 1793–1815 by Jasper M. Trautsch (review)
    • Abstract: The United States remained a land of confusion at the end of the War of Independence. While the hastily built union of thirteen disparate states had managed to prosecute a protracted war against their former colonial master, the conflict had failed to create a strong sense of national identity among Americans. The United States did not have a hold on the heart of most Americans in 1783.Jasper Trautsch's new book argues that partisan debates about U.S. foreign policy played a key role in the emergence of national identity in the United States. The Genesis of America seeks to understand how Americans came to conceive of their national community being distinct from the other nations of the world. For Trautsch, U.S. ... Read More

    • Abstract: We live in cynical political times. It's easy—common even—to ascribe base motives or rationales to people's actions, particularly in the realm of politics and law. This cynicism is not reserved to our contemporary political landscape; it filters into our view of historical actors. Carli Conklin brilliantly and persuasively compels us to buck this trend and to take seriously the words inscribed in one of the foundational documents of the United States: the Declaration of Independence. Conklin does not ask us to abandon our critical assessment of the founders' intentions; rather she charges us to ground our understanding of these actors in their own times and conceptions of themselves.

  • Frontiers of Science: Imperialism and Natural Knowledge in the Gulf South
           Borderlands, 1500–1850 by Cameron B. Strang (review)
    • Abstract: Frontiers of Science: Imperialism and Natural Knowledge in the Gulf South Borderlands, 1500–1850 is a careful assessment of the contingency of numerous forms of early modern natural knowledge. Cameron Strang argues that imperialism shaped the acquisition and circulation of knowledge in early America, a conclusion in line with similarly astute works about the history of science. A view of science from the Gulf South is transformative for appreciating the persistent intensification of the alliance between knowledge production and imperial ventures. The horrific consequence of this intertwining of natural knowledge and political agendas is multivalent modes of violence, including U.S. reinforcement of racial ... Read More

  • Church in the Wild: Evangelicals in Antebellum America by Brett Malcolm
           Grainger (review)
    • Abstract: Early American evangelicals led vibrant, dynamic mental lives, interpreting and acting upon the standards of both this world and the world they believed would come. They consumed and deployed a canon of literature that included, in addition to the Bible, hymns, theological treatises, and practical essays and manuals that emerged from the English Reformation and Enlightenment. Much of that corpus addressed the natural world or relied on nature for its primary metaphors. Evidence of that engagement is found not only in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century print sources but also in the manuscript letters and journals of evangelicals. Nevertheless, we rarely associate evangelicals with veneration of nature.Brett Malcolm ... Read More

  • The Practice of Citizenship: Black Politics and Print Culture in the Early

    • Abstract: Derrick Spires, an associate professor of English at University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, wrote The Practice of Citizenship: Black Politics and Print Culture in the Early United States in part to respond to the sense that discussions about print culture, the public sphere, and democratic deliberation had left out black participants and visions. The resulting work, though, is far more interesting than if Spires simply had applied the theories of Jürgen Habermas or others to early African American literature. Instead he develops his own theory of how black thinkers and writers developed what he calls a "practice of citizenship." Scholars working on black radicalism, American print culture, and antebellum ... Read More

    • Abstract: Accounting for Slavery offers a nuanced and meticulously researched analysis of management practices on West Indian and southern U.S. plantations. While historians have explained slavery's centrality to American economic development by examining relationships between the plantation complex and financial capital, northern industrialization, and global commodities markets, Rosenthal looks at the books. Through a close reading of plantation accounts and by finding parallels between plantations and later nineteenth-century corporations, she argues that slaveholders were early practitioners of scientific management.Rosenthal organizes her account chronologically and thematically around four business practices: ...

  • A Literate South: Reading before Emancipation by Beth Barton Schweiger
           (review)
    • Abstract: In 1826, historian Jared Sparks was making his way through the state of Virginia, gathering documents related to his research on George Washington, when he paid a visit to a Mr. Gray of Fredericksburg, an agent for the North American Review, which Sparks had purchased in 1824. Sparks noted Gray's relative success—forty-six subscribers—in circulating the Review in the vicinity. Yet, he wrote, "[Gray] thinks there will be no such thing as book-making in Virginia for a century to come. People here prefer talking to reading."1 In her rigorously researched and elegantly written study of literacy in the antebellum South, Beth Barton Schweiger maintains that "talking" and "reading" are not so separate. Indeed, in an ... Read More

  • No Property in Man: Slavery and Antislavery at the Nation's Founding by
           Sean Wilentz (review)
    • Abstract: The text of the U.S. Constitution did not spell out the word "slave" prior to the Reconstruction Amendments. Nor did its first framers adopt a human-chattel clause guaranteeing a national right to own people. As James Madison self-reported in his posthumously published "Notes of Debates in the Federal Convention of 1787," it would be "wrong to admit in the Constitution the idea that there could be property in men."1 This well-known constitutional absence (and quotation) has hardly troubled a scholarly consensus on the proslavery force of the framers' handiwork. The numerical incorporation of enslaved people in slave-state federal representation, provision for rendition of interstate fugitives from slavery ... Read More

  • American Honor: The Creation of the Nation's Ideals during the
           Revolutionary Era by Craig Bruce Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Craig Bruce Smith has written a different study of honor. Rather than opening on the battlefield or the dueling ground, the book begins with the delegates arriving at Carpenters' Hall for the First Continental Congress in 1774. Before the Revolution began, these Americans shared an understanding of honor and virtue. When many of these same delegates met two years later to declare independence, they pledged their sacred honor to the cause.Smith argues that common and well-defined conceptions of honor, virtue, and ethics united Americans in the patriot cause. As a consequence, "Americans from expansive gender, social and racial categories transformed them as their own" (2). As individuals came to understand honor and ... Read More

           by Peter E. Gilmore (review)
    • Abstract: For at least fifty years, historians of colonial, revolutionary, and early republican America have characterized Pennsylvania as a place where ethnic, religious, and racial pluralism bred a particularly contentious and competitive brand of interest-group politics that foreshadowed later developments in modern America. As the story goes, William Penn's policies of toleration and his recruitment of Protestant immigrants set the stage for Pennsylvania to become a heterogeneous colony where different groups jockeyed for power. Then came the Revolution, which only intensified the competition as various ethno-religious minority groups, particularly Irish Presbyterians, rushed to fill the power vacuum left by the ...

    • Abstract: Juliane Braun's Creole Drama: Theatre and Society in Antebellum New Orleans is an excellent and timely entry into an untreated area of theatre and antebellum history: francophone New Orleans examined through what Braun calls the "lens of theatre" (3). Braun's study follows renewed scholarly interest in theatre of the colonial and early national periods, with New Orleans serving as a key site to reconsider transnational geographies of early American history. Braun moves beyond a binary of assimilation and resistance to highlight the "often-conflicting strategies" whereby the city's diverse francophone communities positioned themselves in the national, regional, and Atlantic worlds. Theatre served as a vital ... Read More

    • Abstract: In his 1970 biography, Thomas Jefferson and the New Nation, Merrill D. Peterson wrote of his subject, "Of all of his great contemporaries Jefferson is perhaps the least self-revealing and the hardest to sound to the depths of being. It is a mortifying confession but he remains for me, finally, an impenetrable man." Peterson suggested that Jefferson's historical importance might have been one barrier to understanding the man. "Jefferson became so much a part of the nation's ongoing search for itself, so deeply implicated in the whole epic of American democracy, that succeeding generations were unable to see him clearly and objectively in his own life and time." Peterson optimistically asserted, "the twin hysterias ... Read More
