  • “When a State Abounds in Rascals”: New York’s Revolutionary Era
           Committees for Public Safety, 1775–1783
    • Abstract: After receiving “frequent complaints . . . made by . . . well affected inhabitants,” on July 24, 1780, the Albany County Commission for Detecting and Defeating Conspiracies (ACDDC), a patriot institution created to root out dissent in all its forms, ordered their Door Keeper Jacob Kidney to apprehend John Partherton, William Lee, and Ann Lee. Deeming “their conduct and conversation” a danger to “publick peace,” the ACDDC feared these suspicious residents were “daily dissuading the friends to the American cause from taking up Arms in defence of their Liberties.” If the three resisted, the ACDDC permitted Kidney to call as many men as necessary to accomplish his charge. Two days later, Kidney reappeared before the ... Read More

  • Confronting Colorism: Interracial Abolition and the Consequences of
           Complexion
    • Abstract: Anthony Burns’s reputation preceded him when he entered school in the fall of 1855. A year earlier, his arrest and trial in Boston under the Fugitive Slave Act had galvanized an immense public backlash. Burns’s supporters had purchased his freedom along with a scholarship for him to study in the secondary school of Oberlin College, the most famous of a network of abolitionist educational institutions open to all students—male and female, “of color” and white. Former slaves became minor celebrities on Oberlin’s campus, with whites purportedly competing to sit beside them at meals. While a harrowing personal history distinguished Burns, his dark complexion also set him apart (see Figure 1).1Most African American ... Read More

  • From Shylocks to Unbelievers: Early National Views of
           “Oriental” Jews
    • Abstract: The ongoing reexamination of early American representations of Islam has provided important insight into the impact of North Africa on the new nation and the evolution of American orientalism, as well as context for modern tensions between the United States and the Islamic world. However, historians have largely overlooked representations of the Jewish population found in the same documents. This omission partly results from the divergent methodologies of historians of Islam and Judaism in early America. Because there was no visible Muslim population in the early republic (although likely a considerable invisible enslaved population), scholars interested in American–Islamic interaction and orientalist attitudes ...

  • Throwin’ Scholarly Shade: Eric Williams in the New Histories of
           Capitalism and Slavery
    • Abstract: Worse still as we shall discover, there is only the slightest resemblance between these assertions and what Williams actually maintained.Most of the people who have helped to make their livings off of telling us what’s wrong with Eric Williams just wish they were as smart as he was.The year 1944 saw the publication of Capitalism and Slavery in the United States. Authored by Eric Williams, a young colonial West Indian Negro and professor at Howard University, it was an explosive work. With a bold, mordant wit, the book shattered conventional wisdom by intertwining and recasting the histories of European industrialization, African enslavement, and abolitionism. According to Williams, the emergence of industrial ... Read More

  • Before the Pioneers: Indians, Settlers, Slaves, and the Founding of Miami
           by Andrew K. Frank (review)
    • Abstract: Andrew K. Frank’s Before the Pioneers is a deep history that explores 4,000 years of human settlement on the north bank of the Miami River, the location of present-day downtown Miami, Florida. Frank’s volume examines a site that is only a few square acres, but the book ranges through thousands of years of history. He begins with Florida’s geologic formation and the migration of people to the Florida peninsula some 12,000–14,000 years ago. The book ends where, as he notes, many histories of Miami open—with booster Julia Tuttle, industrialist Henry Flagler, and the incorporation of the city in 1896. In between, Frank explores the many people who shaped the north bank site to suit their own purposes—Tequestas and ... Read More

  • Liquid Landscape: Geography and Settlement at the Edge of Early America by
           Michele Currie Navakas (review)
    • Abstract: Colonial powers, from Spain to the United States, tended to think of the flat, swampy peninsula of Florida as a hard place to govern that was even harder to settle. In this smart new book, Michele Currie Navakas argues that Florida’s difficult geography, especially at its southern terminus, made it a rich site of cultural production and political debate. Florida, Navakas reminds us, was a place where mangrove trees could create new land, where the distinctions among islands, reefs, and mainland were seldom clear, and where hurricanes dashed ships to pieces and remade coastlines. These features raised “pressing questions about place, personhood, and belonging that animated U.S. culture and literature during the ... Read More

  • The Social Life of Maps in America, 1750–1860 by Martin
           Brückner (review)
    • Abstract: The Social Life of Maps in America is a very social book. It is outgoing and connected in tone, focus, and scope, which emphasizes the nature and role of maps in multiple dimensions of American civic and personal life. Riffing on Arjun Appadurai’s, The Social Life of Things (Cambridge, UK, 1986), Brückner emphasizes the need to understand the meanings of maps not only from “within the content” but also “from the outside” (10). Much like the texts discussed, Social Life of Maps links disciplines, formats, and data in ways that Google, GPS, and Twitter location services would envy, resulting in a book relevant to social as well as physical topography, past and present.Immaculately curated and organized, Social Life ...

  • In the Looking Glass: Mirrors and Identity in Early America by Rebecca K.
           Shrum (review)
    • Abstract: The best kind of history should make you see the world anew. Rebecca K. Shrum’s In the Looking Glass does just that. The world in which nearly every American became intimately familiar with what Shrum calls their “mirror selves” took place slowly, unevenly, and shaped, in surprising ways, how peoples across the Atlantic world practiced and constructed race, gender, identity, and magic. Combining evidence and methodologies from written sources, probate inventories, visual studies, archaeology, ethnology, and oral history, Shrum carefully presents the contours of what she can and cannot know about the historical social lives of mirrors. And by devoting serious consideration to the practices of Europeans, European ... Read More

  • Experiencing Empire: Power, People and Revolution in Early America ed. by
           Patrick Griffin (review)
    • Abstract: Recently, scholars of the eighteenth century have paid increasing attention to empire as something that occurred on both sides of the Atlantic, something which, as Patrick Griffin describes it in his introduction to this collection, was “imagined on the margins as much as it was at any center” (10). This collection of twelve essays offers a window into how diverse actors—from transgressive French colonial wives in St. Louis to a Scottish coffeehouse owner—constructed and negotiated empire. Arising from a 2013 conference celebrating Timothy Breen and his influence in the field both as a scholar and mentor, this collection provides tantalizing snapshots into some of the best and most current research being done on ...

  • First Martyr of Liberty: Crispus Attucks in American Memory by Mitch
           Kachun (review)
    • Abstract: Breathes there a soul so dead as never to have heard of Crispus Attucks' Surely not today. Yet as Mitch Kachun explains in First Martyr of Liberty: Crispus Attucks in American Memory, Attucks’s death was not always so familiar. Kachun traces the memory of Attucks as a named participant and, in some versions, the instigator of the 1770 event later called the Boston Massacre. Attucks was unfamiliar to most black Americans until 1840, and Bostonians did not memorialize him with a monument until 1888. Most Americans did not learn of Attucks in school books and fictional treatments until another sixty or seventy years after that. Kachun explains why Attucks’s story was variously forgotten, resurrected, embellished ... Read More

  • The Revolutionary War Lives and Letters of Lucy and Henry Knox by Phillip
           Hamilton (review)
    • Abstract: Phillip Hamilton’s edited collection of the letters of Lucy and Henry Knox during the American Revolution seeks to correct what he sees as a surprising lack of scholarship on the couple. Positioning the Knoxes’ correspondence as an alternative to the better-known and oft-cited letters of John and Abigail Adams, Hamilton contends that the Knoxes’ wartime exchanges offer an overlooked and accessible window into the American Revolution. Unlike the Adamses, the Knoxes were young (18 and 24 respectively), childless (at least at the start of the conflict), and newly married. Henry Knox was an officer in the Continental Army. Lucy Flucker Knox came from a prominent loyalist family, and split with her parents and siblings ... Read More

  • Jefferson’s Body: A Corporeal Biography by Maurizio Valsania
           (review)
    • Abstract: In the preface to his monumental biography of Thomas Jefferson, Merrill D. Peterson made what he characterized as a “mortifying confession”: Despite two decades of study, Jefferson remained “elusive,” his personality still “impenetrable.”1 Although Jefferson wrote thousands of letters and left ample evidence of his political viewpoints, he concealed the essential elements of his personality from posterity, tantalizing today’s scholars with numerous seeming paradoxes. In Jefferson’s Body, Maurizio Valsania professes to have found a way to finally breach the Jeffersonian defenses and offer a glimpse into the inner life of the Sage of Monticello. Through a corporeal biography, a “coherent historical narrative about ... Read More

  • Reluctant Reformer: Nathan Sanford in the Era of the Early Republic by Ann
           Sandford (review)
    • Abstract: Seemingly inadvertently, independent scholar Ann Sandford has produced in this biography of her relative Nathan Sanford a portrait of the frustrations of life as a truly second-rate American politician. Sanford pursued his ambitions across decades via the law and politics, but even according to the evidence compiled by this biographer eager to prove that Sanford “deserves recognition and our attention,” he never acquired the prominence or influence he hoped for (3).Sanford was born on Long Island in 1777, and his long public career stretched from New York City to the state capital in Albany to the nation’s capital. The intensity of his ambition as a young man was revealed when he “dropped the first ‘d’ in his ... Read More

           to the Constitution by George William Van Cleve (review)
    • Abstract: In “We Have Not a Government”: The Articles of Confederation and the Road to the Constitution, George William Van Cleve, research professor at Seattle University School of Law, traces the collapse of the Confederation Congress from 1783–87. Because the Confederation lacked either an independent source of revenue or enforcement power over the states, Van Cleve argues, it proved unable to resolve several challenges that faced the United States in the aftermath of the Revolutionary War. By 1786, these failures convinced most Americans that the Confederation had become moribund and that they must take a chance on political reform through a constitutional convention.Van Cleve explains that the restoration of peace in ...

  • Diminishing the Bill of Rights: Barron v. Baltimore and the Foundations of
           American Liberty by William Davenport Mercer (review)
    • Abstract: In February of 1833, an aged John Marshall delivered the final decision of his 34-year career on the U.S. Supreme Court: in Barron v. Baltimore, he effectively ruled that the Bill of Rights did not apply to state or local governments. Marshall’s judgement in Barron has puzzled scholars for two primary reasons. First, by restricting the applicability of the Bill of Rights to the federal government, the decision deviated from much of Marshall’s earlier jurisprudence that had used the Court to uphold or expand federal power. Second, Marshall’s disregard for natural-law arguments was out of sync with the prevailing practices of state and federal courts considering issues of individual rights at the time.William ...

  • American Sanctuary: Mutiny, Martyrdom, and National Identity in the Age of
           Revolution by A. Roger Ekirch (review)
    • Abstract: In American Sanctuary, A. Roger Ekirch tells the riveting story of mutiny, murder, escape, and retribution in its full detail. He connects the fate of HMS Hermione sailors to the partisan politics of the United States in the late 1790s. It is a story not just about disgruntled and ill-treated sailors, but it is about fundamental issues of American identity and governance—such as personal liberty, national sovereignty, citizenship, alien rights, and separation of powers. Ekirch asserts that the story of a British mutiny “powerfully influence[d] the momentous election of 1800” and more significantly, “helped to shape the infant Republic’s identity” (xii).He divides the story into three parts, which are bookended with ...

  • Blood from the Sky: Miracles and Politics in the Early American Republic
           by Adam Jortner (review)
    • Abstract: David D. Hall’s seminal work, Worlds of Wonder, Days of Judgement, demonstrated how thoroughly enchanted was the world that the New England Puritans inhabited.1 In this provocative and beautifully written book, Adam Jortner convincingly argues that the age “of miracles and wonders” declined, but did not end, when the Puritans became Yankees (x).The early republic was replete with encounters with the supernatural: visions of angels and gods, mystical conversions, healings, tongues speaking, exorcisms, and other heteroclites. Blood rained from the sky above Ohio in 1804, not far from the site of the famed Cane Ridge revivals (1). Enlightenment principles of epistemology changed the nature of religious experience in ...

    • Abstract: It is ironic that New York City has often been overlooked as a center of publishing in the early United States, though that distinction is not without reason. The two figures traditionally seen as the dominant publishers of the early republic, Mathew Carey of Philadelphia and Isaiah Thomas of Worcester, each have deep archives of their business records available at libraries with a longstanding commitment to the study of the printing and book trades (the Library Company of Philadelphia and its neighbor, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, for Carey and the American Antiquarian Society for Thomas). Though plentiful records exist for New York’s major publishers, they are not similarly concentrated. In An Empire ... Read More

  • American Nationalisms: Imagining Union in the Age of Revolutions,
           1783–1833 by Benjamin E. Park (review)
    • Abstract: With American Nationalisms, Benjamin E. Park has set himself an extremely ambitious task—tracing the relationship between nationalism and federalism across the first half-century of the young United States. To do so properly, he explains, one must recognize that the meanings of both nationalism and federalism changed over time and space, that their articulation even in a single time and place varied among groups and even individuals and was shaped by an evolving print culture, and that the various formulations of nationalism and federalism in the United States emerged amidst an equally fluid discussion of these concepts in the revolutionary Atlantic world. By incorporating such a rich perspective, Park shows ... Read More

  • Slavery and Silence: Latin America and the U.S. Slave Debate by Paul D.

    • Abstract: Joining recent works by Caitlin Fitz, Matthew Karp, and Brian Delay, the late Paul Naish’s Slavery and Silence probes how perceptions of Latin America shaped culture, racial ideologies, territoriality, and expansion in the United States between the 1820s and the Civil War. A deft blend of social, cultural, literary, and political history, Slavery and Silence furthers our understandings of the construction of the racial ideologies that underwrote slavery and conquest in the early republic.Drawing on a variety of disciplines and theories, the introduction explores why so many whites found themselves unwilling to discuss slavery in the United States between 1831 and 1852. Naish argues that most whites preferred ... Read More

Designed mainly as a classroom text, this nicely illustrated book begins with a handy timeline of major events and concludes with a useful glossary of terms. The text itself is highly descriptive, explaining vignettes in the history of these sister republics through the lives of eight individuals.The book begins by placing the Spanish American real de a ocho or “piece-of-eight” at the center of the global trading network of the late eighteenth century, emphasizing its importance for the early development of the U.S. monetary system. ...

  • The New Middle Kingdom: China and the Early American Romance of Free Trade
           by Kendall A. Johnson (review)
    • Abstract: At any point in time, the U.S. relationship to China has been characterized by mystique, incomprehensibility, dissimilarity, and great hope for similarity, which ultimately turns to vilification when the Chinese state and people resist. The conundrum of an unconsummated relationship with China is ongoing and, according to Hong Kong-based author Kendall Johnson, it has been formative in the development of the United States’ identity as a virtuous commercial empire. Why, then, has this “romance of free trade” tied to East Asia been so overlooked by those who founded American Studies, Johnson asks' In the book’s final sentence, he makes the point that has become cliché yet refuses to gain saliency: The U.S. expansion ...

  • Rainy Lake House: Twilight of Empire on the Northern Frontier by Theodore
           Catton (review)
    • Abstract: Under a blistering summer sun in 1823, an injured John Tanner stalked up the path to the Hudson’s Bay Company trading post at Rainy Lake House, near the border between the United States and Ontario. When Tanner—known to the Company’s traders as “The American” and to Ojibwe peoples as Gichi-mookomaan—reached the fort, he pounded his fists against the gate and accused the men inside of abducting his daughters. When the Company men dismissed Tanner’s accusations, he solicited the aid of both the Company’s “chief factor,” Dr. John McLoughlin, and a U.S. military officer, Major Stephen Long, who happened to be leading a scientific–military expedition into the region at the time. These three men were well acquainted with ... Read More

  • Jews on the Frontier: Religion and Mobility in Nineteenth-Century America

    • Abstract: Seventeen-year-old telegraph worker Edward Rosewater struggled to hold down a job, roaming throughout the Midwest in search of reliable employment. Although a Jew, Rosewater attended a smattering of Christian churches, including a Tennessee revival. Characters with shifting religious identities like Rosewater serve as a vehicle for Shari Rabin’s ambitious argument that the religious lives of nineteenth-century Americans demonstrate continuity with the much-discussed “nones” of the twenty-first century.1 Rabin argues that the fluid religious identity that characterized Jews like Rosewater prior to the Gilded Age was not exceptional, but rather the “default” setting for religiosity in America (3). Heartily embracing ... Read More

  • Charleston and the Emergence of Middle-Class Culture in the Revolutionary
           Era by Jennifer L. Goloboy (review)
    • Abstract: Jennifer Goloboy recounts an interesting and detailed history of merchants in Charleston, South Carolina, from the 1760s to the 1820s. By framing this period as the “Revolutionary Era,” she argues for important continuities in the commercial culture of Charleston before and after the Revolutionary War. The lives and habits of Charleston merchants, she argues, offer a new perspective on the important organizing factors in the history of middle-class culture in America. “Above all,” Goloboy writes, “I hope to dispel the idea that ‘middle-class’ inherently implied ‘nice’: economically and socially progressive, engaged in nurturing a close family life” (4). Charleston merchants were sharp dealers, whose main object was ... Read More

When your subject left behind no documents written in his own hand, when the extent of his travels through the Atlantic world is exceeded only by the broad scope of his impact and legacy, and when the historiography surrounding him is fraught with controversy, the task is nearly impossible. All of this marks the work of Douglas R. Egerton and Robert L. Paquette in producing The Denmark Vesey Affair: A Documentary History as a monumental achievement. In more than eight hundred pages, Egerton and Paquette have put together an annotated document collection that details the context, events, and influence of Denmark Vesey’s planned 1822 revolution in ...

  • Blackface Nation: Race, Reform, and Identity in American Popular Music,
           1812–1925 by Brian Roberts (review)
    • Abstract: In 1844, the Hutchinson Family Singers performed for the first time “Get Off the Track.” Penned by the family’s lead lyricist, Jesse Hutchinson, the song linked the era’s primary symbol of progress to the abolitionist cause. “Roll it along! through the nation,/Freedom’s car, Emancipation,” the family sang with increasing intensity. Unsurprisingly the song resonated with an antislavery audience; even William Lloyd Garrison reputedly danced in the aisle to its rhythmic beat. More curious, however, is the inspiration for the song’s melody. Hutchinson drew, or rather stole, his tune from a blackface song—Dan Emmett’s catchy “Old Dan Tucker.” How a blackface song could become the most recognized abolitionist anthem of ... Read More

    • Abstract: Jim Crow North is a wonderfully compact compendium of many of those things readers (including historians) would like to know concerning the realities of racism as practiced and sometimes reformed in antebellum New England. A generation of scholars has produced dozens of books and many scores of articles on seemingly endless facets of slavery and black lives in New England and the Old North. The numbers of such works are legion, and the subtleties of their monographic arguments so dizzying, that it has become difficult to make sense of the avalanche unless one is willing to become a specialist on the topic. Thankfully, the veteran historian Richard Archer, emeritus professor of history from Whittier College, has ... Read More

  • The Slaveholding Crisis: Fear of Insurrection and the Coming of the Civil

This book is about competing visions of American exceptionalism and the narrative that created the Confederate States of America. Was America unique in that liberty was the right of all people, regardless of socioeconomic status or race' Or was the United States special because its particular balance of white power prevented slave insurrections from upending the great American experiment' For the southern elite, one had only to look at the violent revolution in Saint-Domingue (modern-day Haiti) to see the truth: Abolitionism would corrupt and destroy America’s distinctive constitutional government. Carl Paulus convincingly advances the thesis ... Read More

  • Borderland of Slavery: The Struggle over Captivity and Peonage in the

    • Abstract: William Kiser begins his monograph by flipping a commonly held belief on its head: “that the Civil War and the Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution ended slavery in the United States” (15). What follows is a persuasive set of arguments that compares categories of coerced labor in the Southwest—“debt peonage” and “captivity”—with the categories of coerced labor in the Southeast—chattel slavery and sharecropping, from the era of the Mexican–American War up through Reconstruction. The intervention is twofold: First, Kiser wants to broadcast that Native captivity and debt peonage were not merely regionally significant phenomena, but national ones as well; second, and in the vein of the first, he contends that the ...
