  • Southern Cross, North Star: Why the Middle Mattered—and
           Matters—in Civil War History
    • 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 2016. Tad Brown, president of the Watson-Brown Foundation, awarded the prize to Christopher Phillips for his book The Rivers Ran Backward, published by the Oxford University Press. These remarks were given at the annual banquet of the Society of Civil War Historians (SCWH), held during the Southern Historian Association annual meeting on November 10, 2017, in Dallas, Texas. The SCWH judges and administers the book prize.A half century after the coincidence of the civil rights movement and the centennial of the Civil War, cities in the former slave states and ...

  • Guest Editor's Introduction: The Future of Abolition Studies
    • Abstract: When Judy Giesberg asked me to guest edit a special issue on abolition and solicit essays that would showcase new directions in abolition studies, I welcomed the opportunity. For a field that has been ploughed thoroughly—from global syntheses of the transition from slavery to freedom in the western world by some of the most eminent historians of slavery and abolition such as Robin Blackburn, Seymour Drescher, and David Brion Davis to numerous finely grained studies of African Americans, women, Garrisonian, political, and evangelical abolitionists in the last few decades—it might seem that we have nothing new left to say about abolition. In fact, as the original essays in this issue illustrate, we have barely begun ... Read More

  • Mo Tappan: Transnational Abolitionism and the Making of a Mende-American
           Town
    • Abstract: During the latter half of March, in the dry season of 1870, missionary Henry Johnson gathered a collection of folktales in the Mende language. Born in Sierra Leone to Yoruba parents who had been rescued from the slave trade and colonized by the British, Johnson was a gifted linguist with a keen interest in African cultures. Based at Mo Tappan, a small town on the edge of the colonial frontier, and assisted by translators, he set about interviewing Mende subjects with scientific precision. Although his original manuscript is now lost, an English translation survives in the archives of the Church Missionary Society, the organization that financed his efforts.1 The collection of twenty-six stories includes fables and ...

  • The Indian's Cause: Abolitionists and Native American Rights
    • Abstract: In 1833, black abolitionist Maria W. Stewart insisted, "The unfriendly whites first drove the native American from his much loved home. Then they stole our fathers from their peaceful and quiet dwellings, and brought them hither, and made bond-men and bond-women of them and their little ones."1 Stewart's claim that the enslavement of Africans in the Americas necessitated dispossessing Native Americans was a central feature of abolitionist rhetoric after 1830. Abolitionists came to this conclusion through their engagement with the fight against Indian removal that began in the wake of Andrew Jackson's election. It was not just the historical dispossession of Indians that concerned abolitionists but the effort in ... Read More

  • Antislavery Utopias: Communitarian Labor Reform and the Abolitionist
           Movement
    • Abstract: When Frances Wright arrived at New Harmony, Indiana, in the spring of 1825, she was struck by a sense of possibility. As she recalled in a letter to friends at home in her native Britain, on first encountering Robert Owen's experimental community on the banks of the Wabash River, "A vague idea crossed me that there was something in the system of united labor as there in operation w[hi]ch m[igh]t be rendered subservient to the emancipation of the South." Like other radical reformers who set their sights on the changing relations of employment brought about by industrialization in the first half of the nineteenth century, Wright decried "the baleful effects arising out of the division of labor" and the "selfish ...

  • Black Transcendentalism: William Cooper Nell, the Adelphic Union, and the
           Black Abolitionist Intellectual Tradition
    • Abstract: William C. Nell was a black abolitionist, activist, historian, and community leader who helped lead one of the most important black intellectual clubs in Boston. He also had sustained and close interactions with New England Transcendentalists, like Ralph Waldo Emerson, Theodore Parker, A. Bronson Alcott and others. These two aspects of his life were not as disconnected as some scholarship on antebellum black radicalism or Transcendentalism might lead us to suspect. In fact, through conversations with Transcendentalists Nell developed strategies for talking about the political and social advancement of African Americans.

  • Reconsidering Politics in the Study of American Abolitionists
    • Abstract: In his 2005 Society for Historians of the Early American Republic presidential address, "Reconsidering the Abolitionists in an Age of Fundamentalist Politics," James Brewer Stewart pleaded with scholars to reintegrate histories of the abolitionist movement and antebellum American politics. Stewart lamented that "to read in" the abolition studies and political history literatures was "to slip back and forth between alternate universes." Since then, historians have reinvigorated the study of abolitionist politics. With a spate of recent syntheses by "big names" in the field and some exciting new publications on the horizon, we are now primed to reexamine how the American abolitionist movement both generated novel ...

  • In the Shadow of "Dred Scott": St. Louis Freedom Suits and the Legal
           Culture of Slavery in Antebellum America by Kelly M. Kennington, and:
           Before "Dred Scott": Slavery and Legal Culture in the American Confluence,
           1787–1857 by Anne Twitty (review)
    • Abstract: In June 2012, Saint Louis was ahead of the curve. That month, the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation and the National Park Service unveiled a statue of Dred and Harriet Scott on the south-facing lawn of the city's Old Courthouse. The monument was a reparation of sorts for the couple's defeat in Scott v. Sandford (1857). The state of Maryland caught up in 2017, balancing the equation. First in Frederick and then in Baltimore and Annapolis, officials took down likenesses of U.S. Supreme Court chief justice Roger Taney, a defender of slavery and responsible for thwarting the Scotts' quest for freedom. The reinterpretation of history drove these changes. When descendants of the Scotts and of Taney appeared together in ... Read More

  • Slavery on the Periphery: The Kansas-Missouri Border in the Antebellum and
           Civil War Eras by Kristen Epps (review)
    • Abstract: Kristen Epps's Slavery on the Periphery considers the institution of slavery along the Missouri-Kansas border from the creation of Missouri's "Little Dixie" in the 1820s to the end of the Civil War. Epps focuses on what she calls the "social geography of labor" along the Missouri-Kansas border (3), noting that "slave mobility was a key factor in shaping the contours" of the life of the enslaved in the area (2). She not only contends that slavery was a going concern in the Show-Me State, but she also reminds us that slaves were present in Kansas until it entered the Union as a free state in 1861.Epps breaks new ground by considering the Kansas-Missouri region as a single unit. She shows that there were "overlapping ... Read More

  • Indians in the Family: Adoption and the Politics of Antebellum Expansion
           by Dawn Peterson (review)
    • Abstract: At the turn of the nineteenth century, the government of the United States embraced the "civilization" of Native Americans as a central goal of national Indian policy. With the help of philanthropists and religious organizations, federal officials sought to convince Native Americans to abandon their languages, religions, and social practices and to assimilate into the new republic. This campaign, its architects hoped, would achieve the bloodless elimination of indigenous peoples and allow the steady expansion of the United States. As Native Americans assimilated, the United States would absorb tribal territories, replacing Indian nations with settler communities. Some Native Americans accepted elements of the ... Read More

  • Man's Better Angels: Romantic Reformers and the Coming of the Civil War by
           Philip F. Gura (review)
    • Abstract: Philip F. Gura's fine new book is a history of the perfectionist impulse that took hold of many Americans in the decades before the Civil War. The author or editor of more than a dozen books, Gura is a sure-handed guide through the complicated, and often convoluted, plans conjured up by antebellum intellectuals, prophets, and dreamers. Weaving together chapter-length biographies of seven such figures—George Ripley, Horace Greeley, William Batchelder Greene, Orson Squire Fowler, Mary Gove Nichols, Henry David Thoreau, and John Brown—Man's Better Angels explores the contours of Romantic reform, paying particular attention to its pitfalls.Gura's most important revelation is that the Panic of 1837 had a profound impact ...

  • A Mind to Stay: White Plantation, Black Homeland by Sydney Nathans
           (review)
    • Abstract: Some forty years in the making, Sydney Nathans's new book tells a remarkable story and is a monumental achievement. It delineates the experiences, from the mid-nineteenth century to the present, of a group of 114 enslaved persons and their descendants. The slaves belonged to Duncan Cameron, one of the largest slaveholders of the North Carolina piedmont, whose son Paul managed his vast agricultural operations. In 1844, Paul Cameron purchased a 1,600-acre plantation near Greensboro, Alabama, and convinced his father to allow him to remove the 114 slaves, mostly in family units, to it. The story also includes 82 slaves whom Paul Cameron later sent to another plantation at Tunica, Mississippi. (After Duncan Cameron's ... Read More

  • Stepdaughters of History: Southern Women and the American Civil War by
           Catherine Clinton (review)
    • Abstract: Catherine Clinton has a talent for finding the complexities of a popular subject but conveying them in an elegant manner accessible to lay readers and satisfying to academic audiences. With subjects ranging from the plantation mistress to Mary Lincoln, and from Fanny Kemble to Harriet Tubman, Clinton's works examine the multifaceted range of women's lives in the bizarre, perverse, yet entirely American South of the nineteenth century. Her latest volume, Stepdaughters of History: Southern Women and the American Civil War, is no different. The product of the Walter Lynwood Fleming Lectures in Southern History, this work might be taken only as a thoughtful synthesis and review of current scholarship on southern women ... Read More

  • Lincoln and the Democrats: The Politics of Opposition in the Civil War by
           Mark E. Neely Jr. (review)
    • Abstract: Understanding northern Democrats during the Civil War era has always been a problematic task. Understudied, they do not fit neatly into a Civil War narrative centered on emancipation—it is easy to forget, for example, that Democrats represented approximately 45 percent of the white northern electorate. They complicate the idea of a unified North marching in lockstep, standing as a reminder that northern war aims varied widely. Historians, most notably Frank L. Klement, in The Copperheads in the Middle West (1960), and Jennifer L. Weber, in Copperheads: The Rise and Fall of Lincoln's Opponents in the North (2006), have typically cast northern Democrats as the foil to Lincoln and the Republicans, emphasizing the ... Read More

  • Lincoln's Lieutenants: The High Command of the Army of the Potomac by
           Stephen W. Sears (review)
    • Abstract: Stephen Sears has appropriately dedicated his latest book to Bruce Catton. In terms of both content and style, Lincoln's Lieutenants will remind many readers of their early encounter with Civil War history in Catton's classic Army of the Potomac trilogy. This is good old-fashioned narrative history replete with human drama; it is unabashedly great-man history with an emphasis on military decision making at the highest levels. In Sears's view, command decisions mattered most in determining the course and outcome of the Civil War, and so he pays little attention to other issues aside from the ways in which politics influenced the Army of the Potomac. In these pages, even the commander in chief, Abraham Lincoln, is ... Read More

  • American Ulysses: A Life of Ulysses S. Grant by Ronald C. White (review)
    • Abstract: For the last three decades, Ulysses S. Grant has been the beneficiary of a revisionist wave of scholarship that includes more than a few full-scale biographies. Scholars have burnished the favorable portrayals of Grant's generalship offered by J. F. C. Fuller and Bruce Catton while delivering telling blows at criticisms of his shortcomings as a president. One almost rolls one's eyes to hear of a publisher proclaiming the appearance of yet another effort to rescue Grant's reputation and rehabilitate his standing in the American pantheon of heroes as revolutionary, given what we have already seen appear in the wake of William S. McFeely's 1981 study. Those readers hoping for a revelation or even a substantial ... Read More

  • Occupied Vicksburg by Bradley R. Clampitt (review)
    • Abstract: Recent scholars of the Civil War have demonstrated how the home front and battlefront were inextricably connected. Epitomized by LeeAnn Whites and Alecia Long's edited collection, Occupied Women: Gender, Military Occupation, and the American Civil War (2009), and joined by various studies of soldier-civilian relations, occupation, and irregular or guerrilla warfare, the field has increasingly collapsed the distinction between home front and war front. In Occupied Vicksburg, Bradley R. Clampitt's narrative of the Mississippi town brings the participants to life and shows how years of Union occupation transformed "most residents of Vicksburg … into hardcore Confederates" (3). Based on extensive archival research ... Read More

  • Midnight in America: Darkness, Sleep, and Dreams during the Civil War by
           Jonathan W. White (review)
    • Abstract: "Nighttime during the Civil War might reasonably be considered the most sleepless period in American history," writes Jonathan W. White(xix). It is the rare moments of sleep during this period, the dreams of the sleepers, and the recording of, sharing of, and musings on those dreams that are the focus of White's new book. Any professional historian or Civil War buff who has perused soldiers' letters from the Civil War has likely come across at least one dream report. Soldiers and civilians frequently recorded, shared, and analyzed their dreams with the folks back home or at the front. White promises readers that investigating the dreams of people who lived through the Civil War "has the potential to teach us a ... Read More

  • Sex and the Civil War: Soldiers, Pornography, and the Making of American
           Morality by Judith Giesberg (review)
    • Abstract: In Sex and the Civil War, historian Judith Giesberg contributes to the social and cultural history of the Civil War and Reconstruction by investigating the circulation of pornography and its prohibitions. Drawing on newspapers, court records, and manuscript collections from the Kinsey Institute to the YMCA archives to some of the extant pornographic books and illustrations that soldiers circulated throughout Union camps, Giesberg raises profound questions about sexuality and desire, masculinity and its discontents, and the technologies and networks that the Civil War engendered.As Giesberg acknowledges in her introduction, beginning in the 1990s historians Catherine Clinton and Nina Silber transformed the study of ...

  • Reconstruction in Alabama: From Civil War to Redemption in the Cotton
           South by Michael W. Fitzgerald (review)
    • Abstract: Michael W. Fitzgerald's Reconstruction in Alabama offers a new interpretation of the period of Reconstruction (1865–77) in Alabama. No historian has produced a comparable narrative since the publication of Walter Lynwood Fleming's Civil War and Reconstruction in Alabama in 1905. Fitzgerald seeks to present a more "reliable, modern account" than that of Fleming by exploring the ways in which different groups of Alabamians worked together across racial lines to achieve particular political and economic objectives during the period of Reconstruction (2). He also identifies historical moments such as the Panic of 1873 and its subsequent depression that resulted in the collapse of interracial cooperation, growing white ... Read More

  • A Nation without Borders: The United States and Its World in an Age of
           Civil Wars, 1830–1910 by Steven Hahn (review)
    • Abstract: Steven Hahn's ambitious synthesis of the history of the United States from 1830 to 1910 is the latest installment in the planned five-volume Penguin History of the United States series edited by Eric Foner. The book has all the hallmarks of a broad interpretive account that spans decades and lacks the scholarly infrastructure of a heavily documented monograph with footnotes drawn from archival collections. At first pass, it might be tempting to regard such a volume as simply a survey text. However, by placing the Civil War in the middle—rather than at the end or the beginning of his account—Hahn provocatively opens up the field to new interpretive perspectives. By employing this chronology, Hahn is able to pivot ... Read More
