  • Editor's Note
    • Abstract: The essays in this issue seek to reopen debates on topics central to our understanding of Civil War causes and the administration of the war, namely, tariffs, states' rights, and Confederate draft exemption. Another essay revisits an important freedom suit that stood ominously in the background as the Dred Scott case was argued. In each, the author pays careful attention to the words and actions of legislators—and litigators—as they sought to respond to local needs while navigating a national crisis. There are all sorts of surprises here.The issue opens with Earl Hess's Tom Watson Brown acceptance speech. Hess issues a call to action for scholars to continue to find ways to revitalize military history by refusing ... Read More

  • Rejuvenating Civil War Military History: A New Take on Infantry Tactics
    • 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 2015. Tad Brown, president of the Watson-Brown Foundation, awarded the prize to Earl Hess for his book Civil War Infantry Tactics, published by the Louisiana State University 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 3, 2016, in St. Pete Beach, Florida. The SCWH judges and administers the book prize.In the aftermath of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, it is evident that a significant reevaluation of the war's military ... Read More

  • System, Process, Agency, and Contingency in the Study of Antebellum
           Policymaking: The Tariff of 1846
    • Abstract: "It is mentioned as a remarkable coincidence," observed the New-York Tribune on July 31, 1846, "that one vote carried the Tariff of 1824; one vote the Tariff of 1828; one vote in each House carried the Tariff of 1842; and by one vote in the Senate the Tariff of 1846 has become a law." The Tribune got its figures wrong, but the pattern it identified was nonetheless significant, and certainly no coincidence; the tariff was a fiercely contested issue during the antebellum period, and the fate of legislation on the subject was typically decided by extremely small margins.1 This was particularly true for the Walker Tariff of 1846, the prompt for Horace Greeley's editorial, which squeezed through the Senate by ...

  • "On Behalf of His Race and the Lemmon Slaves": Louis Napoleon, Northern
           Black Legal Culture, and the Politics of Sectional Crisis
    • Abstract: In the fall of 1852, a free black New Yorker named Louis Napoleon upended the plans of a Virginia couple, Jonathan and Juliet Lemmon, who were hoping to move to Texas with their seven children and eight slaves. The household had sailed to New York City in order to make a steamship connection to New Orleans—at the time, this was one of the fastest routes to the Southwest. Their itinerary, however, presented a problem: New York was technically free soil. The state legislature had made this assertion of territorial sovereignty explicit in an 1841 statute. A strict reading of this law forbade the Lemmons from holding slaves within New York's borders, even for a few hours. Napoleon, a black laborer, wanted a local court ... Read More

  • "Tell Us Something about State Rights": Northern Republicans, States'
           Rights, and the Coming of the Civil War
    • Abstract: In August 1857, Ohio governor Salmon P. Chase visited Cincinnati, ostensibly to discuss a state treasury scandal. His main purpose was to stump for reelection. Chase was chosen as Ohio's first Republican governor in 1855, but his two-year term would soon expire, and he came to Cincinnati to solicit votes. Like other Republicans, Chase wasted no opportunity to discuss slavery; before finishing his late-summer speech, he examined that "great question that constantly absorbs our thoughts, and demands our continual attention and enlists our feeling." Alluding to the slave power theory he had long expounded, Chase warned that "the Federal Government is reduced to be the despotism of a slave oligarchy." The evidence was ... Read More

The original act, passed in April 1862, had provided a list of exemptions for essential home-front occupations, including Confederate and state officers; mail carriers; teachers; nurses; printers; apothecaries; ministers; employees in mines, furnaces, and foundries; and men working on the railroads. In thinking about the requirements of the home front, legislators had forgotten several fundamental needs, among them the need to supervise the nation's slave population. In the antebellum South, the control of slaves, particularly on plantations, often rested in the hands of white overseers. In addition to performing their police role ... Read More

  • The Strange Career of Judge Lynch: Why the Study of Lynching Needs to Be
           Refocused on the Mid-Nineteenth Century
    • Abstract: The systematic reporting and analysis of lynching began as a way to shock ordinary white Americans, both northern and southern, to reconsider the system of racial oppression and segregation that dominated the United States at the turn of the twentieth century. The impact of such antilynching work on the lives of African Americans in the South is open for debate, but there is no doubt that the efforts of early lynching specialists shaped the scholarly study of lynching all the way to the turn of the twenty-first century. While applauding this foundational work, this essay nevertheless argues for a broadening of lynching as a field of study. The history of mob violence in the United States is for not only those ...

  • Plantation Kingdom: The American South and Its Global Commodities. by
           Richard Follett, etal. (review)
    • Abstract: This collection of four essays, with an introduction and conclusion by Richard Follett, brings together some of the best historians who study the history of the commodity crops made by enslaved labor in the U.S. South. The production and distribution of these crops—tobacco, rice, cotton, and sugar—shaped more than the slave society that attempted to destroy the United States by fission in 1861. These four crops not only made the United States and its globally hegemonic capitalist economy possible, but also played (especially if we add sugar's other adopted homelands to the account) a dispositive role in the historical emergence of modern global capitalism as a whole.Each essay expresses some of the insights of its ...

  • Finding Charity's Folk: Enslaved and Free Black Women in Maryland. by
           Jessica Millward (review)
    • Abstract: Scholarly engagement with legal records has led several historians to write microhistories based on cases that explore the experiences of people once hidden from view. In this fashion, Jessica Millward came to write Finding Charity's Folk following her encounter with Charity Folks, "a ghost of slavery who refuses to be silenced" (xvii). In 1797, John Ridout manumitted his (approximately) forty-year-old slave Charity Folks by deed. Within ten years, she had successfully navigated the boundaries between slavery and freedom to secure the freedom of her five children as well. Millward uses her story to illuminate the ways that enslavement and the pursuit of freedom affected African American women and thereby offers a ... Read More

  • The Sacred Mirror: Evangelicalism, Honor, and Identity in the Deep South,
           1790–1860. by Robert Elder (review)
    • Abstract: Since the appearance of Bertram Wyatt-Brown's influential Southern Honor: Ethics and Behavior in the Old South (1982), historians have been gauging the influence and impact of honor on the South, and the related regional violence and strict gender roles that defined honor culture. Older concepts of honor—tied as these were to public perception, shame, and the occasional need for retribution—still dominated below the Mason-Dixon Line, said Wyatt-Brown, long after losing hold elsewhere. Equipped with a mountain of anecdotes, court records, and more, he argues that the North and the South went very separate ways when it came to behavior and ethics: "It was this discrepancy between one section devoted to conscience and ...

  • One Nation Divided by Slavery: Remembering the American Revolution while
           Marching toward the Civil War. by Michael F. Conlin (review)
    • Abstract: The interpretation of the founding of the United States played an important role in the history wars of the 1990s and in the more recent controversies over the content of textbooks and Advanced Placement U.S. history courses. Not surprisingly, these struggles have inspired vigorous debates in contemporary historians' works such as Gary B. Nash, Charlotte Crabtree, and Ross E. Dunn's History on Trial: Culture Wars and the Teaching of the Past (1997) and Andrew M. Schocket's Fighting over the Founders: How We Remember the American Revolution (2015).In his timely contribution to the literature, Michael Conlin reminds us that struggles over the meaning of the nation's founding—and founders—are no new phenomenon. On the ... Read More

  • Confederate Political Economy: Creating and Managing a Southern
           Corporatist Nation. by Michael Brem Bonner (review)
    • Abstract: Michael Brem Bonner aims to reassess Confederate political culture in action in order to establish a new model for understanding the political economy of the South during the Civil War. He challenges scholars who have contended that Confederate oligarchs operated an undemocratic, top-down economy and created state socialism. Instead, Bonner paints a picture of leaders who prioritized national survival over any particular economic doctrine. In their attempt to win the war, Confederate politicians worked with industrial leaders, and this cooperation unintentionally led to the creation of a corporatist state similar to twentieth-century nations. Ultimately, he concludes, "in order to fight modernization the ... Read More

  • Lone Star Unionism, Dissent, and Resistance: Other Sides of Civil War
           Texas. ed. by Jesús F. de la Teja (review)
    • Abstract: Texans have always set themselves apart. Their state's distinctive history, economy, and geography—geographies, really—mean that they are both southern and western, although not fully either. The state's role in the Civil War, most of it enacted a world away from most Texans' doorsteps, and the peculiar problems faced by Texas at the time (its continuing wars with Native Americans and the unrest along its long border with Mexico) has also created a somewhat different relationship between the state's residents and their past. In many ways, the war is a less central component of the state's narrative than it is for other Confederate states, although generations of Texans easily, even casually, adopted the Lost Cause ...

  • Northern Character: College-Educated New Englanders, Honor, Nationalism,
           
    • Abstract: The death of Union soldier Charles Russell Lowell at Cedar Creek in the penultimate year of the American Civil War gave rise to sermonizing and soul-searching in almost equal measure across the New England states. For Unitarian minister Cyrus Bartol, Lowell's death was a sacrifice for the Union, and for Edward Waldo Emerson, whose words from his introduction to Lowell's Life and Letters (1907) open this study, it was a sacrifice that Lowell was almost destined to make. For men like Lowell, as for those who commemorated him, Kanisorn Wongsrichanalai argues, character was destiny; and in the course of the Civil War, for many of the New England elite, that destiny turned out to be death in the name of the nation. It ... Read More

  • From Hometown to Battlefield in the Civil War Era: Middle Class Life in
           Midwest America. by Timothy R. Mahoney (review)
    • Abstract: As further proof of both the vibrancy of the Midwest's historiography and the regional approach to the Civil War era, Timothy R. Mahoney's From Hometown to Battlefield in the Civil War Era: Middle Class Life in Midwest America, the third volume in the author's trilogy on nineteenth-century midwestern society, relates stories about how an emerging urban middle-class culture was shaped by town-building, economic recession, and civil war, along with a core of common beliefs, during the 1850s and 1860s. To do this, Mahoney skillfully draws from an impressive range of archival and published sources to re-create the lives and circumstances of middle-class midwesterners, including diaries, letters, newspapers, local ...

  • Excommunicated from the Union: How the Civil War Created a Separate

    • Abstract: William Kurtz's new study of Catholics in the Civil War era and how the conflict contributed to the creation of a separate Catholic identity justifies the lavish praise found on the book's back cover. It is a solidly researched study, balancing a healthy amount of archival sources and printed primary sources, period newspapers, and the best (although by no means all) of the secondary sources available. Kurtz, like Susannah Ural before him with her well-known The Harp and the Eagle: Irish-American Volunteers and the Union Army, 1861–1865 (2006), conducted a sizable amount of research overseas in Irish repositories, and he even managed to plumb the famous Auswandererbriefesammlung in Gotha, Germany, which was the ...

  • Abolitionizing Missouri: German Immigrants and Racial Ideology in
           Nineteenth-Century America. by Kristen Layne Anderson (review)
    • Abstract: No state exhibited more contradictory impulses during the Civil War era than did Missouri. A Union slave state with one of the fastest-growing populations in the American West, a gateway to Bleeding Kansas, and home of the Dred Scott decision and some of the worst guerrilla war in American history, Missouri proved to be a vortex of conflict and chaos. A defining element in Missouri's Civil War was the sizable and growing German immigrant population, most of whom were antislavery by 1861.In recent years historians have come to appreciate and explore the complexity of Civil War Missouri and its centrality in the national debate over slavery. As scholars have come to view the American Civil War in more transnational ... Read More

  • Reconstruction's Ragged Edge: The Politics of Postwar Life in the Southern
           Mountains. by Steven E. Nash (review)
    • Abstract: Steven Nash's new account of Reconstruction in the western North Carolina mountains reveals a regional case of Eric Foner's famous description of Reconstruction as an "unfinished revolution." In this corner of Appalachia, Nash argues in Reconstruction's Ragged Edge, efforts at biracial Republican political power made real strides between the end of the Civil War and 1870, with the support of the Freedmen's Bureau and other federal initiatives. By the later date, reactionary violence, a loss of federal support, and a renewed emphasis on the business of business began to undo much of this change. More broadly, Nash convincingly argues for the importance of Reconstruction histories rooted in the past and politics of ... Read More

    • Abstract: Let's accentuate the positive. This is a nuanced work reflecting on black congressmen during Reconstruction and its aftermath. Through an appreciative examination of six leaders, Dinnella-Borrego shows that they disagreed on a lot. But having determined to provide a deromanticized version of what these beleaguered legislators could accomplish, the author could have gone farther.These six congressmen were relatively prominent. They were James Rapier of Alabama, Josiah Walls of Florida, John Roy Lynch of Mississippi, Robert Smalls of South Carolina, John Mercer Langston of Virginia, and George White of North Carolina. They seem a plausible cross-section of the postwar era's twenty black House members. Still, the ... Read More

  • Gender and the Jubilee: Black Freedom and the Reconstruction of
           Citizenship in Civil War Missouri. by Sharon Romeo (review)
    • Abstract: In May 1864, a black woman named Charlotte Ford was standing outside her Saint Louis home when Thomas Farrell, a white man, ran past and struck her with a brick before running off. He explicitly tied this violence to his devotion to the Confederacy, shouting as he committed the assault: "I am a Jeff Davis man all over" (73). Ford's very presence in the city as a free woman of color was an insult to Farrell, who, in assaulting Ford, enacted his protest against slavery's impending demise. Farrell was captured and put on trial in a military court, and Ford was allowed to testify against him, a civil right that had been denied her before the war. In so doing, Ford reconfigured her civil status and sought justice ... Read More

  • Educational Reconstruction: African American Schools in the Urban South,
           1865–1890. by Hilary Green (review)
    • Abstract: For all of the attention devoted to education during Reconstruction, there is surprisingly little on the establishment and persistence of public schools. Much more interest has been given to the origins of freedpeople's schools through the efforts of northern missionary associations, the Freedmen's Bureau, and local networks. And while the scholarship clearly acknowledges that the establishment of public schools in the South was a lasting achievement, few have bothered to closely examine what happened to those schools after they were first set up. Hilary Green's new book, Educational Reconstruction, fills this gap.Green's main argument is that African Americans ensured the permanence of education for themselves and ... Read More

  • New Men: Reconstructing the Image of the Veteran in
           Late-Nineteenth-Century American Literature and Culture. by John A. Casey
           Jr. (review)
    • Abstract: John A. Casey Jr.'s New Men offers a fresh and compelling portrait that challenges many traditional assumptions about Civil War veterans. The term "veteran," Casey notes, has not always held the same meaning in American culture. Before the Civil War, serving in the military was an experience, but not an identity. That changed, however, when millions of men returned home and increasingly perceived their service as life-changing. Veterans from both the North and South were mindful that they stood apart from the rest of civilian society and that only they could speak authoritatively about the realities of war. And this transformation, Casey argues, marks a watershed moment in American history: "it created a new way of ... Read More
