  • Editor’s Note
    • Abstract: One hundred and fifty years since Reconstruction, we believe now is a propitious time to take stock of the scholarly literature and public memory that shape our collective understanding of that crucial era. Almost thirty years after the publication of Eric Foner’s monumental Reconstruction: America’s Unfinished Revolution, we are in the midst of a deep, searching exploration of how to define, analyze, and narrate the crucial period that began during the Civil War and extended, arguably, until the close of the century. Given the vibrancy of the field and growing attention to the public history of the era, it seems wise not to try to pin down exactly where we stand but to take stock, advance ideas, and generate ...

  • Introduction: The Future of Reconstruction Studies
    • Abstract: Historians of Reconstruction are currently at a crossroads. Reconstruction remains one of the most controversial—and least understood—aspects of American history, and that controversy began in the era of the Civil War itself. The genealogy of historiographic debate is familiar to anyone who has spent any time in the field: from the early competing interpretations of participant historians; to the white supremacist and anti-democratic arguments of the Dunning school and the challenge from W. E. B. Du Bois to that view; to the 1960s advent of “revisionism” followed by “post-revisionism”—both of which rejected the Dunning school but were apparently divided on the degree to which they emphasized the hopeful or dour ...

  • The Future of Reconstruction Studies
    • Abstract: Reconstruction in the Southhttp://journalofthecivilwarera.org/forum-the-future-of-reconstruction-studiesOn its face, Reconstruction was the discrete historical process of reintegrating the former Confederacy into the American nation. This process began as soon as the Union captured territory in the Confederacy (circa early 1862) and concluded with the compromise after the disputed election of 1876, which marked the restoration of home rule by southern whites. But as the inherited periodization of the nineteenth century loosens its grip on our imaginations, the noun “Reconstruction,” as applied to postbellum historical processes and to the 1862–77 period, is likely to lose much of its utility as a descriptor for ...

  • The Future of Reconstruction Studies
    • Abstract: The Civil War and State-Building: A Reconsiderationhttp://journalofthecivilwarera.org/forum-the-future-of-reconstruction-studiesA favored way of interpreting American political development is to stress the revolutionary effects of the Civil War on the American nation and its state. In this view, the defeat of the Confederacy interred state’s rights and concentrated power in the central government to an unprecedented degree. This central state, this “Yankee Leviathan,” in the words of Richard Bensel, first focused on creating a legal and political environment in which capitalism could flourish. In the hands of the Populists and Progressives, this same central state then developed the political resolve and ... Read More

  • The Future of Reconstruction Studies
    • Abstract: Political Historyhttp://journalofthecivilwarera.org/forum-the-future-of-reconstruction-studiesThis essay describes how the traditional understanding of Reconstruction politics—as one focused on elections and office holding—was transformed by revisionist work during the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Although the most explicit statement and application of the new paradigm to Reconstruction politics was featured in Steven Hahn’s A Nation under Our Feet (2003), its conceptual origins can be found in the massive archival, documentary project of the Freedom and Southern Society project at the University of Maryland and in theories of politics that emerged during the third wave of feminism. The Freedom ... Read More

    • Abstract: Birthright Citizenship and Reconstruction’s Unfinished Revolutionhttp://journalofthecivilwarera.org/forum-the-future-of-reconstruction-studiesIt is difficult to point to any moment during the past two centuries when the principle of birthright citizenship was not the subject of debate. This essay suggests that the Reconstruction-era ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, in this sense, is best understood as an important, though not definitive, moment in the history of birthright. The import and the limits of events in 1867–68 followed on the heels of antebellum debates over the status of free African Americans. And they were followed by continued uncertainty about birthright when, at the century’s close ... Read More

Spurred by path-breaking research from Daniel Stowell, John Giggie, James Bennett, John Coffey, Curtis Evans, and still others, that scholarship has been particularly effective in demonstrating why African American churches became so important for black community life as well as the course of Reconstruction in the former confederacy. Significant work from, among others, Donald Mathews, Scott Poole, Molly Oshatz, Allen Guelzo, and Michael Hochgeschwender has also shown how thoroughly the religion of white Americans was affected by ...

  • The Future of Reconstruction Studies
    • Abstract: Reconstruction and Laborhttp://journalofthecivilwarera.org/forum-the-future-of-reconstruction-studiesIn recent years, a new generation of historians has set out to transform our understanding of U.S. history by arguing that slavery was central to the development of American capitalism. Slavery in the American South, they insist, was a capitalist labor system. But what does this new trend in the historiography mean for how we understand Reconstruction? Should historians of Reconstruction revise the prevailing interpretation that the end of slavery brought a transition to a capitalist mode of production in the southern countryside? So far, the latest interpretations of slavery as a capitalist labor system have had ... Read More

    • Abstract: Women’s Rights and Reconstructionhttp://journalofthecivilwarera.org/forum-the-future-of-reconstruction-studiesEvery time we use the singular women’s movement—“the women’s movement”—for Reconstruction, as scholars habitually do, we significantly collapse our understanding. Reconstruction witnessed the largest and most sophisticated expansion in women’s rights activism in the nation to that point. Agendas multiplied, and numbers quickly dwarfed antebellum organizing. Women’s rights movements—North and South, built around everything from economic security to bodily sovereignty—were absolutely integral to the history of Reconstruction. Yet most scholarship proceeds without fully recognizing or engaging this fact. ... Read More

Specifically, we need to reconceive the middle of the nineteenth century as a time when the United States was fundamentally changed by two events, the Civil War and our expansion to the Pacific between 1845 and 1848. Each event altered greatly the national trajectory, and so each deserves our attention on its own terms. Both, however, interacted, raised, or amplified the same basic questions and answered those questions in strikingly similar ways. Bringing the two narratives together requires us to expand the boundaries of Reconstruction in both time ... Read More

Brown begins: “Once likened to a dark and bloody ground, scholarship on Reconstruction now thrives less as a form of combat than as a collective building on a solid foundation.”1 Brown alludes to Bernard A.

Despite strong local backing and a well-organized strategy to support legislation calling for a study to consider establishing the first unit of the NPS devoted primarily to Reconstruction, the effort floundered. This was partly due to the enormous bureaucratic hurdles involved in the creation of a new unit of the NPS, but the primary issue was deep-seated and unresolved attitudes toward race, slavery, and historical memory that ...

Du Bois concludes his 1935 tome Black Reconstruction in America by describing the tragic end of this period as a “crash of hell” falling on African Americans in a “whirlwind” of postemancipation violence. He then depicts this whirlwind as followed by distorted historical accounts, ones that were popular in American academe in the early twentieth century when Du Bois wrote Black Reconstruction and that portrayed the period’s experiment in cross-racial democracy—namely the extension of suffrage rights to African American men—as a brief but costly mistake. Du Bois invokes these misrepresentations of history by imagining a college professor addressing his expectant and curious students: “A teacher sits in ... Read More

    • Abstract: Mark Schmeller takes us deep into the shifting assumptions about what was going on in the public sphere in the early and antebellum republic. How would the collective will of the people be understood and manifested? What was the shape and nature of “public opinion”? Schmeller gives us a carefully crafted and long-overdue argument about how Americans imagined, and used, their sense of “what people think” as an actor in the public arena.At the early stages of his research, we are told, Schmeller saw the light: having planned a project that would start in 1870 and run to 1940, he realized that the great drama in this story ran from the Revolution to the Civil War. The result of this insight is six major chapters on ... Read More

    • Abstract: Nat Turner’s rebellion, a slave revolt that swept across Southampton County, Virginia, in late August 1831, remains America’s most famous slave rebellion. Slave rebels left nearly sixty white men, women, and children dead in their wake as they made their way to the county seat, then called Jerusalem. Though white militia put the rebellion down quickly in forty-eight hours, the county, Virginia, the American South, and the nation reeled. Some whites entertained the abolition of slavery in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Others worked to bolster the South’s long-established power structure. Many more whites, particularly in Southampton County, began the business of picking up the pieces of lives shattered by the ... Read More

  • Slave against Slave: Plantation Violence in the Old South by Jeff Forret

    • Abstract: In this impressively researched and well-written book, Jeff Forret investigates violence among the enslaved on southern plantations. For the historian looking to find evidence that the black-on-black violence of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries originated in the community of slaves, this is not the book. Forret notes that although “the metaphorical ghost of violence continues to haunt contemporary discussions of the black community,” it is misleading to conclude that slavery forced African Americans to turn their violence inward (385). To Forret, such an interpretation fails to account for struggle inequality and the larger role of violence in society. Rather, Forret seeks to place black-on-black violence ... Read More

The nearly six hundred pages of detailed text provide a chronological overview of the antislavery struggle, with the opening section of the book covering the movement’s eighteenth-century “first wave” and early republic transition period, and the bulk of the book analyzing antebellum “second wave” immediatism. Sinha’s focus is on the centrality of African Americans to the movement, and particularly on their ideas: methodologically, this is an intellectual history at heart, a lucid genealogy of abolitionist thought. Sinha is careful at every turn both to ... Read More

Those starting backward for Jon Grinspan’s The Virgin Vote not only will spend a long and rewarding time there; they will then rush eagerly to the front, wondering if the whole work can be as shrewd, as thorough, and as insightful as the citations. They will be agreeably disappointed: the body of the book is better yet. As a study of the excitement and larger significance of political engagement in the party period, this is the most thoughtful and indeed the best book written in at least a generation.

    • Abstract: The border between slavery and freedom occupies a contradictory place in histories of the Civil War era, in which it appears at once central and peripheral. In recent years, a growing number of scholars have attempted to reconcile these contradictions in narratives that identify the border—however it might be defined—as crucial to our understanding of sectionalism and war. Christopher Phillips’s meticulously researched and well-evidenced The Rivers Ran Backward is a welcome addition to this body of work. Phillips brings together insights gained over several decades of writing and publishing on the topic to construct a new and comprehensive interpretation of the border region and the sectional crisis.Phillips ...

These essays are about “educated people for whom ideas mattered” (2). Foote and her fellow coeditor, Kanisorn Wongsrichanalai, have assembled a superb volume in which the pieces fit together wonderfully.Joan Waugh’s short, charming, and absolutely essential foreword sets the stage.

Recent decades, however, have brought greater scholarly attention to this war fought under the “black flag.” Most notably, Michael Fellman’s pathbreaking Inside War: The Guerrilla Conflict in Missouri during the American Civil War (1989) and Daniel Sutherland’s A Savage Conflict: The Decisive Role of Guerrillas in the American Civil War (2009) established a more prominent place for irregular fighters within the prevailing narrative of the Civil War.

In the first group, Michael Winship’s “The American Book Trade and the Civil War” and Christopher Hanlon’s “The Transatlantic History of Civil War Literature” serve up fresh material on subjects not as familiar as those treated by neighboring essays on Harriet Beecher Stowe, the American Renaissance, and realism, though each of these neighbors has virtues, too.

For the most part, the book’s contributors ignore policies like the Emancipation Proclamation for an analysis of individuals and institutions, and the relationships between them. Sometimes they make new contributions to older debates over, say, who freed the slaves and why. Sometimes they take the long view, placing their story in a broader geographic or temporal context. Sometimes they engage the problematic circumstances that facilitated black freedom or the troubling consequences that that freedom provoked. But whatever its particular focus, each essay helps advance the ... Read More

    • Abstract: This book is an important and ambitious contribution to current reassessments of Reconstruction-era literature, in part for its focus on oft-neglected works from the period, but also because it situates this writing within a context that identifies the way progressive-minded literature participated in fueling a conservative backlash that directly contributed to the collapse of Reconstruction. The reassertion of white male privilege at the expense of progressive and positive cultural change in the post–Civil War period is a crucial part of American literary history, and yet it is often glossed over for the more traditional focus on the rise of American literary realism. Kennedy-Nolle’s book begins with the ... Read More

As the nation continues to grapple with the tragic 2015 massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, moviegoers witness in Free State of Jones (2016) a snapshot of the Civil War that confronts diluted Lost Cause narratives. In this fraught time, Parsons’s book challenges academic audiences to reconsider the origins, meaning, and dark history of the Ku Klux Klan. Just as we cannot escape the historical connections to Charleston while engaging the ugly power of racial violence on the silver screen, Parsons exposes readers to the troubling realization that the Klan was not a local or regional institution. ...

With the influx of immigrants in the postwar era, this dialogue extended beyond the serious issues that confronted freedpeople. Analyzing the politics of exclusion, Edlie Wong argues in Racial Reconstruction that “the Reconstruction Amendments and the extension of nominal citizenship to black freedmen did not break the constitutive link between whiteness and citizenship” (1). As a study of race, identity, and citizenship, this book highlights the “sociolegal constructions of race and racial power” and the “varied mechanisms by which citizens and immigrants were assigned and invested with ...

Since the publication of Irwin Unger’s The Greenback Era: A Social and Political History of American Finance, 1865–1879 (1964) and Walter T. K. Nugent’s The Money Question during Reconstruction (1967), historians of Reconstruction have paid little attention to finance and monetary policy. Rather, developments related to emancipation, race, citizenship, constitutionalism, reunion, and reconciliation—to name just a few areas—have dominated the scholarly agenda of the postwar years. Yet, as Barreyre persuasively demonstrates, questions ... Read More

Cimbala focuses on veterans’ transition from soldiering to civilian life, which he defines as extending from “war’s end through their journeys home” (xiv).
