  • In Memoriam
    • Abstract: We mark with sadness the premature passing of Anthony E. Kaye on May 14, 2017. In a series of conversations with Bill Blair in 2009–2010, when they were both at Penn State, Tony helped to found and articulate the vision for the Journal of the Civil War Era, and he served as Associate Editor. Author of Joining Places: Slave Neighborhoods in the Old South (UNC Press, 2007), Tony was at work on an ambitious new study of the Nat Turner revolt. Tony enjoyed putting scholars of disparate fields in conversation with one another; we like to think his broad vision lives on in the pages of ... Read More

  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: The essays in this volume should inspire us to reconsider how we measure the changes wrought by the Civil War. Two pieces highlight how the postwar South remained littered with traps that ensnared freedpeople and poor whites in poverty and dependency. Confederate widows, too, were directed to new roles that looked a good deal like the old ones—although there were benefits to accepting them. We begin with an essay that suggests a new way to mark one critical change the war set in motion.Mark Noll uncovers a robust criticism American Catholics offered of Protestants, whose focus on an individual relationship with and interpretation of the scriptures tore at the social fabric and propelled the country into civil war. ...

  • The Catholic Press, the Bible, and Protestant Responsibility for the Civil
           War
    • Abstract: In his April 3, 1865, diary entry, George Templeton Strong recorded the transcendent exultation he witnessed in New York City when news arrived that Richmond had fallen to Union forces. Strong, a prominent lawyer, founder of the U.S. Sanitary Commission, and a vestryman at Wall Street's Trinity Episcopal Church, immediately secured permission to ring the bells at Trinity in celebration. His diary entry, headed "Petersburg and Richmond! Gloria in Excelsis Deo," underscored the harmony of religious and civic sentiments that fueled the city's jubilation. A great crowd, he wrote, "a rude, many-voiced chorale," repeatedly sang "the last two lines" of the national anthem "with a massive roar." As religious ardor rose ... Read More

  • "If Heart Speaks Not to Heart": Condolence Letters and Confederate Widows'
           Grief
    • Abstract: On May 6, 1863, Leila Habersham strolled through her wealthy family's well-tended garden in Savannah, Georgia, chatting with a friend. A shout from the nearby house shattered the calm. Running home, Leila discovered terrible news—her husband was dead. Confederate lieutenant Frederic Habersham had been struck in the head by a shell fragment at the Battle of Chancellorsville and was killed instantly. For the next few weeks, Leila went through the motions of mourning in a daze; even the funeral seemed but a blur. As the shock began to wear off, she clung to one particular form of comfort: the flood of letters that poured in over the ensuing weeks. The funeral service and black crepe might have been more visible signs ... Read More

  • Freedom, Economic Autonomy, and Ecological Change in the Cotton South,
           1865–1880
    • Abstract: Within the vast scholarship on post–Civil War southern agriculture, there is a common narrative. The region emerged from the conflict defeated, physically scarred, and economically handicapped. Its 4 million slaves were free but faced significant obstacles to acquiring capital, land, or agricultural resources. A series of constraints—such as a lack of capital, the war's alterations to credit and debt structures, reduced access to livestock and farm machinery, changing labor arrangements in the wake of emancipation, and a series of droughts—complicated farmers' efforts to resurrect crop production. Still, cotton prices were high, and many planters hoped for a quick return to prosperity. Between 1865 and 1875, the ... Read More

  • Pensions and Protest: Former Slaves and the Reconstructed American State
    • Abstract: A chilling wind tore through central Georgia in the winter of 1865. Huddled in tents near Atlanta was the 138th U.S. Colored Troops, organized nearby just months before. One of the last black regiments formed in the Civil War, it drew its numbers from the formerly enslaved populations fleeing plantations in the wake of Sherman's March. One unhappy night, the icy current ripped a tent away from its stakes, leaving exposed a man who would endure the consequences for sixty-five years.As a slave, he had been known as Anderson Odom. Now he was Anderson Freeman. After escaping Jack Odom's plantation at age twenty, Freeman had made the one-hundred-mile journey northward through Georgia from Columbus to Atlanta, where he ...

  • Rethinking the Confederate Home Front
    • Abstract: This essay began with a conceptual problem I encountered while writing a book about the escape of several thousand Union prisoners of war from the Carolinas during the fall of 1864 and the new insights those escapes revealed about the collapse of the Confederacy. Fleeing prisoners navigated a landscape that historians have traditionally described as "the home front," yet as I followed their journeys, I realized that the conditions they encountered did not fit very well with my understanding of the concept, which assumes a separation between civilian populations and the military conflict. For example, according to the conventional home front / battlefront dichotomy, Spartanburg County was ensconced in the home front ... Read More

  • Slavery's Capitalism: A New History of American Economic Development ed.
           by Sven Beckert and Seth Rockman (review)
    • Abstract: If this book's topic no longer seems new, that is in part because its editors and essayists have been at the forefront of a renewed effort to show how significant slavery was to the early United States economy. Their essays suggest that the label "slavery's capitalism" is the best way to comprehend that economy before the Civil War. Slavery infiltrated capitalism—and vice versa—such that we cannot understand one without the other. In order to capture the nature and extent of this symbiotic relationship, these scholars draw from labor history, social history, business history, financial history, and political economy. Their source bases include the records of financial, legal, and educational institutions; the ... Read More

  • Africans in the Old South: Mapping Exceptional Lives across the Atlantic
           World by Randy J. Sparks (review)
    • Abstract: In this book, Randy Sparks offers a series of case studies of women and men who traveled from West Africa to the American South—and sometimes back again—in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Sparks does not claim these individuals were typical or representative. Rather, he argues that their extraordinary stories, reconstructed through meticulous research and careful analysis, illuminate a range of possibilities, strategies, and identities that would otherwise remain obscure. The result is an engaging study that enriches our understanding of the transatlantic slave trade, the American South, and the Atlantic world.The first two chapters explore the experiences of members of two mixed-race ...

  • The Power to Die: Slavery and Suicide in British North America by Terri L.
           Snyder (review)
    • Abstract: Outspoken proslavery politician James Henry Hammond claimed in 1845 that he could not recall "a single instance of deliberate self-destruction" among slaves (155). Hammond's view, undergirded by the twin ideologies of paternalism and racism, was pervasive among antebellum white southerners. His denial about slave suicide bolstered the paternalist narrative that slaves were well cared for, content, and therefore had no reason to take their own lives. Racialized ideas about slaves' nature also informed beliefs about the rarity of slave suicide. Whites believed blacks were cowardly and thus lacked the fortitude to commit self-murder; they claimed that because slaves were intellectually and constitutionally inferior ... Read More

  • The Other Slavery: The Uncovered Story of Indian Enslavement in America By
           Andrés Reséndez (review)
    • Abstract: For all of its unfathomable brutality, the history of black chattel slavery in the United States comes to a decisive conclusion: the emancipation of nearly 4 million African Americans by 1865. By contrast, the history of Indian enslavement in the Americas reaches no clearly defined close, as Andrés Reséndez argues in his ambitious new work on the subject. It ends rather indeterminately in the late nineteenth century, not with a bang, but with a whimper.But not for lack of effort. First the Spanish Empire, then the Mexican government, and finally the United States all made concerted efforts to stamp out practices of Native American enslavement within their domains. Despite these well-intentioned campaigns, Indian ... Read More

  • Bonds of Union: Religion, Race, and Politics in a Civil War Borderland By
           Bridget Ford (review)
    • Abstract: In this perceptive and nuanced volume, Bridget Ford sets out to explain how Americans from oppositional backgrounds came to see each other as participants in the same national project. Building on recent work that has drawn attention to the depth of meaning the idea of "union" held for nineteenth-century Americans, Ford skillfully expands the implications of this work by focusing on the early republic's "Western Country": the Ohio River valley, and especially its largest and most important cities, Cincinnati and Louisville (3). In these river communities that shared so much in common, Ford shows how actors forged "bonds of union" that established connections across the slave–free divide, kept Kentucky in the Union ...

  • The Politics of Black Citizenship: Free African Americans in the
           Mid-Atlantic Borderland, 1817–1863 By Andrew K. Diemer (review)
    • Abstract: In January 1817, a group of black Pennsylvanians held a meeting that resulted in a unanimous denunciation of the American Colonization Society (ACS) and its program of removing black people from the United States. This is perhaps one of the best-known moments in antebellum black politics—a well-documented collective gathering that produced a clear political statement that black people were Americans. Andrew Diemer adds valuable texture to this well-worn story. He notes that despite the oft-cited unanimity of the gathering, James Forten, a wealthy black Philadelphian and vocal protest leader, was initially undecided on colonization but that popular black sentiment swayed his opinion. Diemer also frames this meeting ... Read More

    • Abstract: About eighteen pages into Alfred L. Brophy's University, Court, and Slave: Pro-Slavery Thought in Southern Colleges and Courts and the Coming of Civil War, I began to worry that the author was promising too much. According to Brophy, the book explains the intellectual foundations of proslavery thought through studies of individual thinkers and universities; the politicians who put these ideas into practice and the antislavery literary imaginary that arose in opposition; the proslavery judges such as Joseph H. Lumpkin who developed an economic rationale that expanded the salience of their doctrines; the slaves who pushed proslavery legal thought to the limits of its inhumanity; and, finally, the moral basis of ...

    • Abstract: General readers interested in a fine history of the United States immediately before, during, and immediately after the Civil War who can tolerate some false advertising will appreciate Timothy S. Huebner's Liberty and Union: The Civil War Era and American Constitutionalism. The book's title promises a constitutional history. Its first two sentences declare, "This book is about the relationship between the Civil War generation and the founding generation. That is, it examines how Americans of the mid-nineteenth century understood the founders' handiwork, the Declaration of Independence of 1776, and the Constitution of 1787" (ix). The actual text is a fairly comprehensive history of the United States from 1845 to ... Read More

  • Apostle of Union: A Political Biography of Edward Everett by Matthew Mason
           (review)
    • Abstract: Abraham Lincoln told Americans that they could not escape history. Edward Everett could have said the same, albeit more verbosely. Matthew Mason's rigorously researched and delicately argued biography of the great orator presents him as both a shaper of history and a hostage to it. Although successful in articulating ideological and emotional Unionism, Everett could not temper the divisiveness of sectionalism and slavery. Mason's portrayal of Everett and the tension between union and slavery that molded his thought and career underscores that the moderate middle ground of Civil War–era politics deserves more attention, especially because compromisers and nationalists, despite their best efforts, could not escape ...

  • Gathering to Save a Nation: Lincoln and the Union's War Governors by
           Stephen D. Engle (review)
    • Abstract: Lincoln alone did not save the Union. With a federal government that consisted of only fifteen bureaus (as compared with hundreds of agencies today), and an army of some sixteen thousand officers and men in December 1860, the Union was less than the sum of its parts. The governors of the twenty-three states that remained after secession held the power to raise troops and provide resources; Lincoln would have to advance the war effort while working with men of disparate beliefs and temperaments.Stephen Engle's Gathering to Save a Nation is the first extensive study of this topic since William Hesseltine's Lincoln and the War Governors (1948). Hesseltine argues that Lincoln "was able eventually to dominate his rival ... Read More

  • Braxton Bragg: The Most Hated Man of the Confederacy by Earl J. Hess
           (review)
    • Abstract: Earl J. Hess's provocative new biography, Braxton Bragg: The Most Hated Man of the Confederacy, sets out to correct the historical record about the Confederacy's most controversial army commander. In taking on the South's favorite lightning rod, Hess has set a difficult task for himself. Few generals inspire as much criticism, disdain, and even outright loathing as Braxton Bragg. The irascible North Carolinian's reputation for military incompetence, harsh discipline, the wanton execution of his own soldiers, and tone-deaf mismanagement of his officers dogged him during the war and has tainted him ever since. And, unlike Union luminaries such as Ulysses Grant, William Sherman, and George Thomas, all of whom have ... Read More

    • Abstract: In Bushwhackers, Joseph M. Beilein Jr. joins a vibrant dialogue on what he describes in his introduction as "the most contradictory, contested, and arresting" men to have fought for the Confederacy (1). From Michael Fellman's revolutionary Inside War: The Guerrilla Conflict in Missouri during the American Civil War (1989) to Daniel Sutherland's award-winning A Savage Conflict: The Decisive Role of Guerrillas in the American Civil War (2009) and, most recently, Matthew Hulbert's The Ghosts of Guerrilla Memory: How Civil War Bushwhackers Became Gunslingers in the American West (2016), historians have returned our attention to the Confederacy's irregular fighters: who they were, how they fought, and the impact they ...

  • Extreme Civil War: Guerrilla Warfare, Environment, and Race on the
           Trans-Mississippi Frontier by Matthew M. Stith (review)
    • Abstract: In Extreme Civil War, Matthew M. Stith lays a claim for the trans-Mississippi frontier as the site of an extreme form of the Civil War because of the prevalence of guerrilla war, harsh environmental conditions, and conflicts created by slavery and the participation of Native Americans. He proposes to use this extreme context to further our understanding of the basic nature of guerrilla war.On the face of it, focusing on race and the environment, factors largely overlooked in previous discussions of the war as it unfolded in the region, would appear to be a likely way to further our understanding of the extremes of the Civil War, as Stith terms it. Stith does delve deeply into the particular conditions of the ... Read More

  • Troubled Refuge: Struggling for Freedom in the Civil War by Chandra
           Manning (review)
    • Abstract: Given the heartbreaking refugee crises that have been unfolding around the globe over the past decade, it is unsurprising that Civil War historians have focused their attention on the more than 400,000 African Americans who fled slavery during the Civil War and began the transition from slavery to freedom in refugee (contraband) camps. In Troubled Refuge, Chandra Manning develops an insight she first articulated in What This Cruel War Was Over: Soldiers, Slavery, and the Civil War (2007): that facts and attitudes on the ground mattered just as much as national policy when it came to the experience of African Americans. Building on the work of Thavolia Glymph, Jim Downs, Patricia Click, and Yael Sternhell (among ... Read More

  • No Mercy Here: Gender, Punishment, and the Making of Jim Crow Modernity by
           Sarah Haley (review)
    • Abstract: Sarah Haley's No Mercy Here reveals the routine exploitation of black women's bodies and labor by the carceral state in Georgia in the late nineteenth through early twentieth century. Haley powerfully uses the story of black female incarceration to show "that gender is constructed by and through race, and that the production of woman and other stable gender categories required violence" (8). From the Reconstruction era through 1908, most incarcerated black women were sent to work camps under the convict leasing program. When convict leasing was abolished that year, they worked on the (state-run) chain gang and were often ordered to spend a probationary period as domestic servants.Haley traces the "queering" of ...
