  • Imagining a Hemispheric Greater America
    • Abstract: In the summer of 2015, sixty-some scholars from at least four countries gathered in the breathtakingly beautiful town of Banff, Canada, to explore the common struggles over sovereignty that shook North America during the 1860s. Featured were the crises faced by the countries of Canada, Mexico, the United States, and the indigenous populations within them. The five articles in this special issue represent a fraction of the rich ideas offered about the struggles over which ruling and economic structures should prevail and which people should determine them. Both Mexico and the United States, of course, endured civil wars. Canadians, meanwhile—partly prompted by the disorder south of their border—in 1867 moved to ... Read More

  • British North America and a Continent in Dissolution": The American Civil
           War in the Making of Canadian Confederation
    • Abstract: No Canadian historian would deny that the American Civil War had an impact on the 1867 decision of the British North American colonies to form a federal union. But how important the Civil War was among the other economic and political factors that led to Confederation has long been a subject of controversy, in large part reflecting how Canadian historians have viewed the nature of the American–Canadian relationship. The first serious scholarly studies of that relationship were written between 1936 and 1945, as part of a twenty-five-volume series sponsored by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, on the relations of Canada and the United States. Not surprisingly, since the emphasis of the series was on the ... Read More

  • Disunited Daughters of the Confederations: Creoles and Canadians at the
           Intersection of Nations, States, and Empires
    • Abstract: According to Grace King, perhaps the first female historian of the South, the best way to understand the Creole woman was to compare her to other iconic women of North America. She was not a "puritan mother," nor a "hardy Western pioneeress." She was "simply a Parisian, who came two centuries ago to the banks of the Mississippi—partly out of curiosity for the New World, partly out of ennui for the Old—and who, 'Ma foi!' as she would say with a shrug of her shoulders, has never cared to return to her mother country." This emotional woman who "refused to eat corn-bread, and demanded slaves" was not that different at first from the "Frenchwomen" of Canada who, forced by the rigorous necessities of climate and savage ...

  • Law, Allegiance, and Sovereignty in Civil War Mexico, 1857–1867
    • Abstract: In North America, the 1860s were a time of radical political experimentation. Crises in various countries engendered constitutional transformation, the renegotiation of sovereignty, and war. As civil strife threatened to tear the two republics apart, the Confederate States and Maximilian's Mexican empire marked out roads not taken. The resounding triumph of Union, liberalism, and republican principles secured the character of the U.S. and Mexican regimes. Meanwhile, British possessions in North America peacefully refashioned the bonds of empire to create a confederated Dominion.1 This "revolution in sovereignty" engendered relatively recognizable versions of the three North American nations we know today. In ... Read More

  • North American Peonage
    • Abstract: As he labored over the first volume of Das Kapital in 1867, Karl Marx paused to describe the system of servitude that existed in North America: "In some States, particularly in Mexico (and before the American Civil War, also in the territories taken from Mexico), slavery is hidden under the form of peonage"—wrote the German sociologist—"and by means of advances, repayable in labor, which are handed down from generation to generation, not only the individual laborer but his family become the de facto property of other persons." Marx was referring to a sprawling system of labor coercion that had existed for centuries in Mexico and the American Southwest and—contrary to his assertion—would survive and even thrive in ...

This essay makes the case for doing so with reference to North America circa 1850–85, a span in which the continent was the site of several of the world's most ground-breaking developments in transport and communications: the introduction of regular steamship traffic between New York and San Francisco (from 1849); the completion of transcontinental railroads in three different polities (Panama in 1855; the United States, first in 1869; Canada in 1885), as well as major north-south trunk systems such as the Illinois Central Railroad (1856) and the Mexican Central Railway (1884); and, not to be forgotten, the inauguration of the first regular ...

  • Colored Travelers: Mobility and the Fight for Citizenship before the Civil
           War by Elizabeth Stordeur Pryor (review)
    • Abstract: Elizabeth Stordeur Pryor uses travel as a lens to examine black freedom in the North during the antebellum era, exploring in Colored Travelers the challenges and obstacles black Americans encountered as they journeyed inside and outside the United States. Pryor convincingly asserts that government-sanctioned segregation, social customs, and popular culture "surveilled, curtailed, and discouraged black mobility," and she contends that African Americans refused to be contained and instead fought for their right to move freely around their communities, the country, and the world (1). Her approach is as refreshing and creative as it is illuminating. Many historians have detailed the restrictions placed on black freedom ... Read More

  • Recaptured Africans: Surviving Slave Ships, Detention, and Dislocation in
           the Final Years of the Slave Trade by Sharla M. Fett (review)
    • Abstract: Sharla Fett's splendid book on illegally enslaved Africans is at once readable and accessible, while making several key contributions to scholarship on slavery, the slave trade, and emancipation in the nineteenth century. The book will interest a wide cast of scholars and would be appropriate for advanced undergraduate students. Before a few years ago there was relatively little scholarship on the slave trade after its abolition took effect in 1808, and historians have actively been working to fill the gaps in our knowledge. Fett is one of them, and her most recent book helps fill a crucial one. The book offers a tight chronology, mostly between 1857 and 1861, and traces the experiences of roughly eighteen hundred ...

  • My Brother Slaves: Friendship, Masculinity, and Resistance in the
           Antebellum South by Sergio A. Lussana (review)
    • Abstract: Lewis Clarke famously proclaimed in 1842 that "a slave can't be a man!" and, until recently, most scholars who commented on slave masculinity seemed to agree. But focused studies of manhood among the enslaved, while still few and very recent, are challenging simplistic generalizations that slavery was a profoundly emasculating experience and that heroic resistance was the only way for a slave to assert manliness. Fortified by the growth of masculinity studies and a growing body of research on women in slavery, historians are widening their conceptualizations of slave manhood beyond family life and violent resistance and combing the evidence in search of male slaves' inner and everyday lives.

  • Wendell Phillips, Social Justice, and the Power of the Past ed. by A J
           Aiséirithe and Donald Yacovone (review)
    • Abstract: Students and scholars of the Civil War era are familiar with Wendell Phillips, the man called "abolition's golden trumpet." This impressive anthology does well to integrate his work not only as an advocate of abolition, but also as an activist for women's, immigrants', and workers' rights; a critic of corporate wealth; and an advocate of economic regulation. This is the first focused consideration of Phillips since James Brewer Stewart's Wendell Phillips: Liberty's Hero (1986). Despite a flurry of scholarship over the past three decades, Stewart's biography has aged well, and Wendell Phillips, Social Justice, and the Power of the Past is better seen as an extension of rather than a replacement for that work. ...

  • Evangelical Gotham: Religion and the Making of New York City, 1783–1860
           by Kyle B. Roberts (review)
    • Abstract: Each chapter in this fine study of the development of evangelical culture in antebellum New York City is balanced in a similar way. First, Kyle B. Roberts introduces a topic and links it to his thesis. Then he presents an often arresting story focused on a particular figure, strapping flesh and blood to the bare bones of his argument and showing us how his ambitious, agonized, and adaptable evangelicals dealt with the whirling confusion of modernity in the city presented to them. From the heartbroken Lewis Tappan, torn between his passionate abolitionism and his campaign to open churches to the poor, to the steely Phoebe Palmer, whose apparent rectitude covered a woman struggling to balance her commitment to ...

  • This Vast Southern Empire: Slaveholders at the Helm of American Foreign
           Policy by Matthew Karp (review)
    • Abstract: Not that long ago scholars portrayed antebellum southern planter-politicians as parochial, keen on walling themselves off from the changing world. Even as intellectual and economic historians chipped away at the image of a culturally isolated, anticapitalist South, political historians continued to study their actors chiefly within their plantation kingdoms, state legislatures, or as combatants in an increasingly raucous national political arena.Starting in the late aughts, however, historians thrust southern statesmen onto the world political stage. Building on the pioneering work of Robert E. May's The Southern Dream of a Caribbean Empire, 1854–1861 (1973) and more fully developed nineteenth-century global ... Read More

  • The Slaveholding Crisis: Fear of Insurrection and the Coming of the Civil
           War by Carl Lawrence Paulus (review)
    • Abstract: Carl Paulus contends that white southerners from the 1790s to the 1860s were haunted by the possibility of slave insurrection. He starts by showing how deeply the Haitian Revolution stirred repercussions on the North American mainland. "Santo Domingo" signified a dreaded nightmare of black rebels, slaughtered whites, and a world turned upside down. Paulus then moves ahead to revisit dozens of familiar handholds—Gabriel, the War of 1812, Denmark Vesey, David Walker, Nat Turner, Thomas R. Dew, emancipation in the British West Indies, immediate abolitionism, the postal campaign, the gag rule, James Henry Hammond's and John C. Calhoun's proslavery overtures, controversies about western territory, and the intensifying ... Read More

  • Literary Cultures of the Civil War ed. by Timothy Sweet (review)
    • Abstract: Two generations or so ago, Civil War–era historians would have been familiar with the works of scholars interested in Civil War literature. Robert Penn Warren, Edmund Wilson, Alfred Kazin, Daniel Aaron, even Lewis P. Simpson popped up in many of our discipline's most significant monographs. And as insightful and trusted as those older readings of Melville and Whitman, Bierce and Crane, Chesnut and Grant have proven to be, the world of Civil War–era literary studies has moved on since the war's centennial. A lot. Yet historians, it seems, have not caught up. Instead, we continue to pay homage to literary scholars of the past. We do so at our peril.The recent collection Literary Cultures of the Civil War, edited by ... Read More

  • War upon Our Border: Two Ohio Valley Communities Navigate the Civil War by
           Stephen I. Rockenbach (review)
    • Abstract: Eschewing the pervading state-history models of his era, historian Edward C. Smith looked instead to topography and waterways as social connectors and dividers. In his 1927 study, The Borderland in the Civil War, he argues that the lower halves of northern states often had more in common with the upper parts of southern states than they did with the rest of their own state. Indeed. Although the study of this "middle ground" has advanced a great deal since Smith's pioneering work—Edward L. Ayers's In the Presence of Mine Enemies: The Civil War in the Heart of America, 1859–1863 (2003) and Christopher Phillips's The Rivers Ran Backward: The Civil War and the Remaking of the American Middle Border (2016) detail how ...

  • A Savage War: A Military History of the Civil War by Williamson Murray and
           Wayne Wei-Siang Hsieh (review)
    • Abstract: This volume falls readily into a well-known type of book on Civil War history. Murray and Hsieh set out to write a general military history of the conflict much in the mode of Russell F. Weigley's A Great Civil War: A Military and Political History, 1861–1865 (2000), John Keegan's The American Civil War: A Military History (2009), and even in many ways Bruce Catton's books published in the 1960s. Organized chronologically, the volume takes the reader through the conflict mainly by discussing strategy, generalship, major campaigns, and battles.Within the confines of what Murray and Hsieh set out to do, they have done it well. The book is a handsome product with very good maps and a clear, engaging writing style. The ... Read More

  • The Yankee Plague: Escaped Union Prisoners and the Collapse of the
           Confederacy by Lorien Foote (review)
    • Abstract: Beginning in the fall of 1864 and lasting until the war's end, the Confederate home front faced a new and formidable foe—some twenty-eight hundred Union soldiers who escaped from makeshift prison camps in North and South Carolina. They were, declares Lorien Foote in her new book on the subject, "a different kind of invading army, one that was weak and unarmed. They never fought a conventional battle. But they heralded the collapse of the Confederate States of America" (20).The experience of imprisonment and escape inspired an unusual number of narrative accounts, from diaries to memoirs, both published and unpublished, that Foote makes the basis for assessing this "Yankee plague" and its role in the breakdown of ...

  • The End of Days: African American Religion and Politics in the Age of
           Emancipation by Matthew Harper (review)
    • Abstract: Matthew Harper has written a persuasive, interpretively fresh, and historiographically necessary book, and he has managed to do all of this with admirable clarity and concision. While political historians like Steven Hahn have unearthed a welter of grassroots political activity in the religious institutions of nineteenth-century African Americans, and while scholars of religion have long debated whether African American religious beliefs stoked resistance or undermined it with otherworldly distractions, Harper fills a puzzling gap in our understanding of how freedpeople's faith conditioned their politics. Previous accounts of the "intersection of religion and politics" in African American history have overlooked ... Read More

  • Democracy and the American Civil War: Race and African Americans in the
           Nineteenth Century eds. by Kevin Adams and Leonne M. Hudson (review)
    • Abstract: Democracy and the American Civil War is a collection of essays based on talks given at Kent State University's 2012 Symposium on Democracy, which took on the topic of democracy and the Civil War in honor of the Civil War's sesquicentennial. In each of the essays, an established scholar of nineteenth-century American history explores how the pressures of the Civil War, the chaos of its aftermath, and shifting ideas of race affected conceptions of American democracy and citizenship. It is a slim work that touches on a number of big issues.The diverse topics covered in the book are all united by the theme of race and democracy, but the authors come at it from wildly different angles, exposing to the reader just how ...

  • The Ghosts of Guerrilla Memory: How Civil War Bushwhackers Became
           Gunslingers in the American West by Matthew Christopher Hulbert (review)
    • Abstract: The role of guerrilla conflict in the course and outcome of the Civil War has moved steadily toward the center of the story. Starting with Michael Fellman's Inside War: The Guerrilla Conflict in Missouri during the American Civil War (1989), appearing nearly thirty years ago, and put solidly into place by Daniel E. Sutherland's A Savage Conflict: The Decisive Role of Guerrillas in the American Civil War (2009), the vital place of irregular warfare, not only on the western fringe of fighting but across theaters, is now pretty much part of the historiographical canon. Matthew Christopher Hulbert now has taken a welcome step in positioning the topic more broadly within our understanding. His purpose, nicely achieved ... Read More

  • The Politics of Mourning: Death and Honor in Arlington National Cemetery
           by Micki McElya (review)
    • Abstract: Over 4 million people annually visit Arlington National Cemetery, clicking photographs of John F. Kennedy's gravesite, the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the National Mall from the heights at Arlington House. In the cemetery gift shop, they can purchase its histories. Most are flashy coffee-table books that inspire patriotic sentiment by relating the narratives of the military dead who came to lie in the cemetery's pristinely ordered rows of graves. Yet Arlington National Cemetery's history, symbolism, and meaning is far deeper and more nuanced than any of the gift-shop books relate. Today, it is America's most hallowed grounds, but it began as a plantation sanctified by the sweat ... Read More
