  • Blue Jacket, Anthony Wayne, and the Psychological and Symbolic War for
           Ohio, 1790–95
    • Abstract: The conclusion of the American Revolution ended hostilities on the eastern side of the Appalachian Mountains, but a volatile and violent situation persisted in the Ohio Country. Unlike the sporadic traders, who for over a century wandered their way through the region, a new stream of settlers poured over the Ohio River, intent on becoming permanent residents. The numerous indigenous nations of the region resolved that they would not give up their homelands without a fight. As white settlers traveled down the Ohio River in 1788, Indian raiding parties destroyed white settlements with disturbing effectiveness, frequently dispatching their floating targets.1 Peace negotiations stalled as the United States failed to ...

  • Luke Swetland’s Narratives Revisited
    • Abstract: This article is based on Revolutionary War veteran Luke Swetland’s (1729–1823) narrative1 printed in the 1780s regarding his experiences as an Indian captive, plus the 1875 publication from Amos O. Osborn of two manuscripts ascribed to Swetland; and Edward Merrifield’s 1915 version, which combines Osborn’s information to sequentially depict events. Due to the damaged document then available to them, Osborn and Merrifield start Swetland’s narrative with his second night as a captive. This article uses Swetland’s full narrative, the events in chronological order, with dates, entries, and notes added for clarification. After the war, Luke Swetland applied for the Revolutionary War veteran pension, which was partially ... Read More

  • Ohio’s John A. Bingham in Meiji Japan: The Politician as Diplomat
    • Abstract: Ohio’s John Bingham was a well-known and successful political figure at the middle of the nineteenth century.1 Despite losing his congressional seat in the wave of Democratic victories in 1862, he was reelected two years later and became a prominent participant in prosecuting Lincoln’s assassins and in drafting the Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution. Moreover, 2018 marked the 150th anniversary of his role in the impeachment trial of Andrew Johnson.Yet Bingham, who served eighteen years in Congress, also had a notable diplomatic career that lasted a full dozen years, two-thirds as long as his better-known political one. In this regard, his career would anticipate a number of later ambassadorial postings of ... Read More

  • The Case for Western Reserve: Medical Education Reform in the Midwest,
           1900–1920
    • Abstract: Western Reserve University expands our understanding of the reform processes of early twentieth-century medical education in the United States. The institutional powerhouses of the East Coast dominate historical accounts, but change may have occurred differently and more slowly in medical schools of the Midwest and West. Western Reserve University (WRU), although midwestern and supported by meager endowments, ranked among the best medical schools in the early 1900s.1 It is clear that medical education reform leaders were not limited to the Northeast because, as Kenneth Ludmerer states, “improvements at these schools [in the Midwest] occurred quietly, almost without notice.”2 Western Reserve University’s Medical ...

  • Unsettling the West: Violence and State Building in the Ohio Valley by Rob
           Harper (review)
    • Abstract: You may think the history of the Ohio Valley between 1765 and 1795 is settled. Now comes Rob Harper’s Unsettling the West. He provides a clear and well-argued thesis while reframing the historical discussion from the very first pages when he employs the term colonists in place of the more traditional settlers. He refutes traditional views that maintain British imperial weakness bred frontier wildness, and that colonization of the region occurred from the “bottom-up” led by independent frontiersmen. His revisionist account concludes by questioning Frederick Jackson Turner’s frontier thesis.Readers can rely on Harper’s concise prose to introduce a complex web of social, political, and economic evidence gleaned from ...

  • Grant by Ron Chernow (review)
    • Abstract: This volume is not likely to become a Broadway musical. It may be the most satisfactory biography of Ulysses S. Grant yet written. “In truth, Grant was instrumental in helping the Union vanquish the Confederacy and in realizing the wartime ideals enshrined in the Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth Amendments. The Civil War and Reconstruction formed two acts of a single historical drama to gain freedom and justice for black Americans, and Grant was the major personality who united the two periods” (xxii).His place as military leader remains reasonably secure, but Chernow’s major contribution is his compelling description of Grant’s rule as liberator and protector of the slaves and freedmen. He concludes, with ... Read More

  • President McKinley: Architect of the American Century by Robert W. Merry
           (review)
    • Abstract: This fine biography about William McKinley is persuasive. The journalist William Merry, who has written a convincing study about President James K. Polk, depicts William McKinley as a well-mannered, decisive, and as an effective state and national leader. Consisting of twenty-nine chapters, this biography extensively treats McKinley as a Gilded Age leader whose industrial views and aggressive foreign policy helped especially to bring the nation into the twentieth century.The first seven chapters are devoted to McKinley’s achievements during his early life. He was born on January 29, 1843, in Niles, Ohio, as the seventh son of Nancy and William McKinley. After the family moved to Poland, he attended the town’s ... Read More

  • The Second Coming of the KKK: The Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and the
           American Political Tradition by Linda Gordon (review)
    • Abstract: For some, the 1920s rouses images of flappers, Model T Fords, and radio. Yet, a countermovement ran alongside this rise in consumerism, promiscuous culture, and urban life. That countermovement, according to Gordon, was the “second Klan,” which began in 1915 and ran with remarkable success until 1926. She describes the Klan as a social movement that effectively blended nationalism with religion, espoused antielitism, and advocated for a return to tradition. As such, it was a mainstream movement far larger than the first Klan. Gordon makes it clear in the introduction that she is “offering an interpretation” of the 1920s Klan, “not a scholarly monograph” (7). She admits personal and modern political influences in ...

  • Rethinking the American Labor Movement by Elizabeth Faue (review)
    • Abstract: Elizabeth Faue’s Rethinking the American Labor Movement is a primer for senior undergraduate students, trade union activists, and the wider public. As the author promises, it is a “short and accessible” overview, but one that offers us a new synthesis. Its claim to newness is based primarily on the fact that the author places race and gender at the center of the history of the US labor movement. The resulting book offers us something more than an institutional history. Rather, focusing on watershed moments, the book examines the history of alliances among diverse groups of workers. In doing so, it presents a strong argument that the trade union movement was fundamentally weakened by its failure to recognize that ... Read More

  • Refining Nature: Standard Oil and the Limits of Efficiency by Jonathan
           Wlasiuk (review)
    • Abstract: Most previous accounts of the history of the Standard Oil Company have focused on the business techniques that John D. Rockefeller used to dominate the newly emerging petroleum industry: ruthless competitive practices, new technologies (such as Frasch’s process to desulfurize crude oil), systematic cost cutting, and, especially, vertical integration. These techniques enabled Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company, with its refining capacity centered in Cleveland, to acquire control of 90 percent of America’s petroleum production by the 1880s and become the model for modern corporate organization. Wlasiuk’s book, however, takes a different tack. He focuses on the environmental repercussions of Standard Oil’s ... Read More
