  • Bill Blair's Wonderful Life
    • Abstract: It's a bit of a trope on long-running television programs that at some point a character will face a personal crisis or moment of doubt, which leads to some sort of far-fetched plot device in which the beloved It's a Wonderful Life is played out. Eventually, the character realizes their positive impact on their family and community, and comes to understand the richness of their own lives.None of us want to think about the SCWH and our tribe of Civil War era scholars without Bill Blair. He is, of course, a great friend, generous colleague, and upstanding man. Former presidents of the SCWH described Bill as wise and kind, indispensable and professional, purposeful and energetic, humble and classy. He is all of those ... Read More

  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: Readers of this issue will find essays that align over questions about border diplomacy and Civil War–era American expansionism, with an opening essay weighing in on when and why the war ended as it did and a review essay that reflects on the future of military history. In between there are spies, rogue diplomats, and double agents.We begin with Andrew F. Lang's Thomas Watson Brown Book Prize talk, "Union Demobilization and the Boundaries of War and Peace," which joins the work of scholars like Gary Gallagher and Mark Wahlgren Summers in arguing that Civil War Americans did not bemoan the war's civil rights shortfalls as much as recent scholars do. In the essay, as in his book In the Wake of War, Lang argues that ... Read More

  • Union Demobilization and the Boundaries of War and Peace
    • Abstract: Editor's Note: The following represents the acceptance speech for the Watson Brown Prize for the best book published on the Civil War era in the calendar year 2017. Tad Brown, president of the Watson-Brown Foundation, awarded the prize to Andrew F. Lang for his book In the Wake of War: Military Occupation, Emancipation, and Civil War America, published by LSU Press. These remarks were given at the annual banquet of the Society of Civil War Historians (SCWH), held during the Southern Historical Association annual meeting on November 9, 2018, in Birmingham, Alabama. The SCWH judges and administers the book prize.When I received the advance copy of In the Wake of War in late 2017, I scarcely imagined standing here ... Read More

  • "We Must Have Chihuahua and Sonora": Civil War Diplomacy in the
           U.S.–Mexico Borderlands
    • Abstract: On January 2, 1862, Col. James Reily relinquished command of his Texas volunteer regiment and departed southern New Mexico on a mission of borderlands intrigue. Bound for Chihuahua City, three hundred miles to the south, he bore the honorific title of special ambassador for the Confederate States of America. Accompanied by a twelve-man escort, Reily had instructions from his commanding officer, Brig. Gen. Henry Hopkins Sibley, to meet with Governors Luis Terrazas of Chihuahua and Ignacio Pesqueíra of Sonora to discuss several topics "of great importance both to the operations of this Army and to the future relations of these [Mexican] States with the Confederate States."1 Reily hoped to achieve three specific ...

  • The Lost Continent of Abraham Lincoln
    • Abstract: On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln spoke at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, the site of one of the most decisive battles of the U.S. Civil War, just four months earlier. The Union victory at Gettysburg in July and the Confederate surrender of Vicksburg, which followed almost simultaneously, were battlefield triumphs that seemed to tilt the strategic situation of the Civil War decisively in favor of the North. By the time he spoke at Gettysburg, however, Lincoln was deeply concerned that events in Mexico offered the Confederacy a geopolitical victory in the New World that threatened to negate much of what Federal armies had accomplished in Pennsylvania and Mississippi.Lincoln's ...

  • "Luke-Warm Abolitionists": Eli Thayer and the Contest for Civil War
           Memory, 1853–1899
    • Abstract: In 1854, Eli Thayer enjoyed national recognition as the founder of the New England Emigrant Aid Company (NEEAC). Sending immigrants to Kansas Territory under the watchful eye of company agents and with the aid of northern capital, he harnessed the power of popular sovereignty to promote the antislavery cause in the fledgling state. He mobilized his fellow northerners to support a gradual solution to the problem of slavery and its westward expansion. The NEEAC became embroiled in the controversy of Bleeding Kansas, as Thayer's free-state settlers clashed with southern immigrants. As the sectional conflict over the territory erupted into a political upheaval that dominated entire sessions of Congress in 1854, 1856 ... Read More

  • Beyond the Chessboard of War: Contingency, Command, and Generalship in
           Civil War Military History
    • Abstract: Traditional military history, while the most venerable approach to understanding the Civil War's martial past, remains somewhat controversial. Earl J. Hess describes the essence of traditional military history as works including "campaign and battle studies, tactical and strategic histories, studies of weapons, and biographies of major commanders."1 In the last decade, Hess, George C. Rable, Gary W. Gallagher, Katherine Shively Meier, and many other distinguished Civil War historians have called, repeatedly, for an evolution of how we think about all aspects of traditional Civil War military history. Yet despite these warnings to adapt, some historians of the Civil War era remain unconvinced about the centrality ... Read More

  • A Curse upon the Nation: Race, Freedom, and Extermination in America and
           the Atlantic World by Kay Wright Lewis (review)
    • Abstract: This is an important book that sheds light on contemporary dilemmas.For almost nine decades following the launching of the successful revolt against British rule in North America in 1776, the anticolonial rebels and their successful republican project endured what could easily be termed "low-intensity conflict" in the form of resistance by the enslaved and uprisings by the Indigenous—often aided by London and related external foes—not to mention anti-Catholic and anti-Mormon conflict. Yet what Kay Wright Lewis focuses on in A Curse upon the Nation is not just resistance by the enslaved but also the oft-expressed desire to "exterminate"—her unearthing of the repeated use of this term is itself remarkable—this ...

  • The Reinvention of Atlantic Slavery: Technology, Labor, Race, and
           Capitalism in the Greater Caribbean by Daniel B. Rood (review)
    • Abstract: This highly informative book illuminates the impact of technology, competition, and resistance on the major slave economies of the nineteenth-century Americas—those of the United States, Cuba, and Brazil. Daniel Rood vividly conveys how slavery was interwoven with sugar making, wheat growing, flour kneading, cotton baling, railroad construction, maritime navigation, and other laborious and complex processes. He explains how "racial capitalism" conscripted a captive labor force of African descent, and how the slaveholders exploited the ingenuity and knowledge of their slaves. Industrial methods intensified this slaveholder capitalism.Among those whose activities Rood studies are the adventurer Matthew Fontaine ... Read More

  • Bound in Wedlock: Slave and Free Black Marriage in the Nineteenth Century
           by Tera W. Hunter (review)
    • Abstract: The history of slave marriage is a relatively well-studied topic, first birthed in the 1970s through a rising interest in the cultural history of slavery. Since then, researchers from various disciplines have published state-based and comparative histories that examine the domestic lives of enslaved people, showing how they loved, courted, married, and even fought one another. Tera Hunter's Bound in Wedlock is the most recent addition to this growing canon. It is an exhaustive study of both slave and free black marriages, the latter of which is a topic that until recently was vastly underexamined. Drawing on a wide swath of primary sources, some previously unknown, Hunter provides the most complete analysis of how ... Read More

  • The Captive's Quest for Freedom: Fugitive Slaves, the 1850 Fugitive Slave
           Law, and the Politics of Slavery by R. J. M. Blackett (review)
    • Abstract: Richard J. M. Blackett, an eminent historian of black abolition and the Civil War, attempts to provide a comprehensive history of the fugitive slave controversy in this book. Based primarily on research in local newspapers from the period, a method pioneered by Stanley Harrold in his award-winning Border War: Fighting over Slavery before the Civil War (2010), this book takes a deep dive into the numerous instances of enslaved people voting with their feet against slavery in the decade before the war. Combining that research with a reading of most (though not all) of the historiography on the subject, Blackett, like several historians in the recent past, seeks to understand the history of the Underground Railroad ...

  • A Strife of Tongues: The Compromise of 1850 and the Ideological
           Foundations of the American Civil War by Stephen E. Maizlish (review)
    • Abstract: For those looking for a detailed account of the titanic nine-month congressional struggle over the complex set of issues that were resolved in the Compromise of 1850, this is not the work to consult. For books that discuss how Congress fought and labored over such a diverse set of issues in the first session of the 31st Congress—California statehood, territorial governments and the status of slavery in Utah and New Mexico, the volatile boundary dispute between Texas and New Mexico, federal responsibility for the Texas debt, abolition of the slave trade in the District of Columbia, and southern demands for a stricter fugitive slave law—the most comprehensive accounts are in Holman Hamilton's Prologue to Conflict: ...

  • Performing Disunion: The Coming of the Civil War in Charleston, South
           Carolina by Lawrence T. McDonnell (review)
    • Abstract: In Performing Disunion, Lawrence T. McDonnell argues that historians of secession have focused too much on why the Civil War came in 1861 instead of investigating who accomplished the task and how they did it. The significance of secession in this book comes less from the political motivations behind it and more from the people who performed disunion. "Of this, we know almost nothing," McDonnell posits. "Which means that we know precious little about secession at all" (9). Historians can and will debate that provocative claim, but McDonnell lays out, in painstaking detail, how the citizens of that hotbed of secessionism—Charleston, South Carolina—performed disunion in 1860–61. And to McDonnell, "performed" is the ... Read More

  • Fighting Means Killing: Civil War Soldiers and the Nature of Combat by
           Jonathan M. Steplyk (review)
    • Abstract: Fighting Means Killing probes a question that many civilians long to ask of returning veterans: "Did you kill anybody'" (5). Moreover, it invokes that question's illicit companion: If so, did you enjoy it' As Jonathan Steplyk acknowledges, these are distinctly post–Vietnam War inquiries. Since the late 1970s, antiwar activists have often preferred to characterize soldiers as the victims or, at least, the instruments of unethical military or governmental overlords. Killing came to be understood as an avoidable, objectionable aspect of war with lasting psychological consequences for veterans. In applying these questions to the American Civil War, Steplyk reveals that, in contrast to modern civilian mores, Confederate ... Read More

  • Civil War in the Southwest Borderlands, 1861–1867 by Andrew E.
           Masich (review)
    • Abstract: "From 1861 to 1867 the diverse peoples—Indian, Hispano, and Anglo—of the Southwest Borderlands struggled for survival and dominance in civil wars, quite apart from the Civil War of the Southern rebellion that raged in the eastern United States" (3). So begins Andrew E. Masich's Civil War in the Southwest Borderlands, which examines the fighting in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico that took place from the start of the U.S. Civil War in 1861 to discharge of the last New Mexico volunteer in 1867. The Southwest Borderlands was a vast theater of war, the combatants, as I have noted elsewhere, far more peoples than armies.Masich's first chapter covers these peoples. He identifies some twenty-seven ... Read More

  • Our Country: Northern Evangelicals and the Union during the Civil War Era
           by Grant R. Brodrecht (review)
    • Abstract: Alexander Stephens once wrote of Abraham Lincoln, "The Union with him, in sentiment, rose to the sublimity of a religious mysticism" (19). Grant Brodrecht's new book shows that Lincoln was not alone. For many Civil War–era Americans—especially white northern evangelicals, the focus of Brodrecht's work—deep religious convictions gave meaning to the Union and lent cosmic significance to the struggle to save it.Brodrecht, in attempting "to give some old sources a new read" (12), has made a much-needed contribution to recent scholarly efforts to fully recover the meaning of the Union among Civil War Americans. He has successfully recovered the "evangelical unionism" so pervasive in nineteenth-century American religious ... Read More

  • The Civil War and the Transformation of American Citizenship ed. by Paul
           Quigley (review)
    • Abstract: This edited collection offers fresh takes on an old question: How did citizenship evolve in the Civil War era' Following the lead of scholar Laura F. Edwards, the authors answer the question by providing examples of everyday people using intricate networks of relationships to individuals, communities, and local, state, and federal governments alternately in place of legal citizenship and as a means to attain recognition of legal citizenship. As befitting a collection written on the Civil War era in this day and age, this book laudably avoids the all-too-common black men–white men binary, including two chapters that focus on black women, and one on Chinese immigrants and Native Americans.Elizabeth Regosin and Tamika ...

  • This Grand Experiment: When Women Entered the Federal Workforce in Civil
           War–Era Washington, D.C by Jessica Ziparo (review)
    • Abstract: Recent historiography is expanding our view of how deeply northern women participated in the home-front activities that made the Civil War possible, granting us a better understanding of women arsenal and factory workers, sex workers, teachers, and journalists who join the list of important women reformers, writers, sanitary commission workers, and domestic laborers who have long seemed essential to understanding the war. Jessica Ziparo's This Grand Experiment provides an excellent, detailed look at another group of women who need to be added to the list of essential war workers: the thousands who sought and gained employment in the federal government from 1861 until the early 1870s.Ziparo builds on insights in ...

  • Oliver P. Morton and the Politics of Civil War and Reconstruction by A.
           James Fuller (review)
    • Abstract: The soldiers' friend. The Indiana dictator. Civil War governor and Reconstruction-era senator Oliver P. Morton has been called both. A. James Fuller's comprehensive biography leaves the reader believing that Morton might better have been called Indiana's Abraham Lincoln. Like the sixteenth president, Morton evolved in his political thinking about race and slavery. Both men fiercely defended the Union and were partisan creatures and crafty politicians. Both men cut some constitutional corners in their efforts to keep the Union intact.Fuller is a fair-minded biographer willing to acknowledge Morton's flaws, his combativeness and fierce rhetoric. He was a "great hater" (224). But Fuller is determined to relieve Morton ... Read More

  • Reconstruction: A Concise History by Allen C. Guelzo (review)
    • Abstract: As the title of this book suggests, Allen C. Guelzo has written a very concise history of Reconstruction. More than a hundred pages shorter than the updated edition of Eric Foner's A Short History of Reconstruction (2015), Guelzo's volume is also very readable. As someone who regularly teaches undergraduate classes on the Civil War and Reconstruction, what struck me immediately was how effectively this book could be used in the classroom as a complement to Gary Gallagher and Joan Waugh's The American War: A History of the Civil War Era (2015). Guelzo's book, however, is more than a resource for students. Despite its short length, he provides interpretations—of constitutional authority, free labor ideology, and ... Read More

  • Americans Remember Their Civil War by Barbara A. Gannon (review)
    • Abstract: In 2011, Barbara A. Gannon's The Won Cause: Black and White Comradeship in the Grand Army of the Republic became the definitive book on the history of the GAR. Now an associate professor of history at the University of Central Florida, Gannon has produced the first book-length historiography of Civil War memory. Although Americans Remember Their Civil War is a quick read and can easily be completed in an evening, scholars will return to it again and again as a key reference for historical memory studies.This book will be particularly useful for teaching and as a study guide for graduate students preparing for comprehensive exams. Gannon summarizes the major points of countless important Civil War books, while also ... Read More

  • Rethinking the Civil War Era: Directions for Research by Paul D. Escott
           (review)
    • Abstract: Any survey of Civil War scholarship is an easy target for criticism, given that no single volume can possibly account for a historiography that is so vast and dynamic. Cynics suggest that the outpouring of new publications makes any historiographical treatment of the Civil War dated and not particularly useful as soon as it is released. Paul Escott's Rethinking the Civil War Era will be of limited value to those readers who always go to the index to see if their book has been cited. Those more concerned about the broad interpretive contours of the field, however, will find Escott's thin volume helpful. In seven tightly written chapters, he touches on a range of topics that include the coming of the war, war and ... Read More
