  • Inglorious Passages: Noncombat Deaths in the American Civil War by Brian
           Steel Wills (review)
    • Abstract: In October 1864, Union army chaplain George Knox mounted a borrowed horse. When he pulled the reins, the horse reacted harshly to the army bit, reared, then fell backward, landing on the chaplain. Knox suffered severe damage to his head and legs. After enduring intense pain for a couple of days, Knox died. One of the soldiers in his unit recounted in his diary, "Mr. Knox is dead. . . . At night I lay down feeling more sad than I have for many days. God knows the future" (119).As Brian Steel Wills's new volume makes plain, such deaths were painfully commonplace during the Civil War. Soldiers died when artillery misfired, or when they got drunk and fought. Others were hit by lightning, drowned while bathing, mangled ... Read More

  • Petersburg to Appomattox: The End of the War in Virginia ed. by Caroline
           E. Janney (review)
    • Abstract: A quarter of a century ago, Gary W. Gallagher published the first entry in what went on to become the Military Campaigns of the Civil War series. Since then, students of the war have looked forward to the essays found in successive books. Each volume considers a campaign in the eastern theater through chapters on both military and nonmilitary topics, written by leading academic scholars as well as public historians. This work, the eleventh in a projected thirteen volumes but the first edited solely by Caroline E. Janney, ably continues the scholarly tradition Gallagher first established in 1994.Five of the volume's nine essays deal effectively with battles and leaders during the war's final months. Combined, they ... Read More

  • In the Wake of War: Military Occupation, Emancipation, and Civil War
           America by Andrew F. Lang (review)
    • Abstract: Asked to list the ways in which military policy shaped the Civil War and vice versa, we might include topics such as emancipation, hard war, and the Lieber Code. Andrew F. Lang's superb new book offers perhaps an unanticipated but paramount addition to this list: occupation. Building on the work of Mark Grimsley and others, In the Wake of War serves as a powerful reminder of the unintended consequences of ideology and policy. Ironically, Lang explains, the crisis of wartime occupation both paved the path toward emancipation and limited the scope of Reconstruction because of a military ethos premised on the ideal of the citizen-soldier.In its earliest years, the United State rejected the notion of a large standing ...

  • The Forgotten Emancipator: James Mitchell Ashley and the Ideological
           Origins of Reconstruction by Rebecca E. Zietlow (review)
    • Abstract: Rebecca Zietlow, a law professor at the University of Toledo, has written the first full-scale biography of James Mitchell Ashley, an influential Republican Party politician who advocated for the freedom of slaves and the rights of laborers. His most significant contributions came during Reconstruction, when he shepherded the Thirteenth Amendment through Congress and supported bills establishing what Zietlow calls "a positive right to free labor" (131). His advocacy of free labor is as important to Zietlow as his antislavery radicalism. She argues that Ashley's free labor values precipitated his antislavery activism and persisted after slavery's destruction because he believed that capital should not exploit labor. ... Read More

  • Beyond Freedom: Disrupting the History of Emancipation ed. by David W.
           Blight and Jim Downs (review)
    • Abstract: The problem at the core of this collection—the contested and multiple meanings of freedom after the American Civil War—enters the historiography of emancipation from two distinct vantage points. First, the differing perspectives of the main protagonists—planters, freedpeople, deliverers—figure prominently in a complicated historical narrative. They brought varying, often irreconcilable understandings of freedom to bear in the protracted confrontation opened up by emancipation. W. E. B. DuBois noted more than eighty years ago in Black Reconstruction in America that these "contending and antagonistic groups spoke different and unknown tongues," shouting past one another while attempting to advance their particular ...

  • Guest Editor's Introduction: Reconsidering Civil War Veterans
    • Abstract: In 2015, James Marten, Brian Matthew Jordan, Barbara Gannon, and Wayne Wei-siang Hsieh offered broad analyses of veterans within a national and global context in this journal's first special issue on veterans. Their work reflected a strong body of scholarship that has continued to grow and enrich our understanding of veterans' readjustment to civilian life, the challenges they faced as their age advanced and their health declined, and the battles they waged over how their service would be remembered and who would tell that story.But for all of this rich scholarship, significant holes and flawed interpretations remain in our work on veterans, which this special issue seeks to fill. Scholars are well versed, for ... Read More

  • Free to Go Where We Liked: The Army of Northern Virginia after Appomattox
    • Abstract: On the morning of April 13, 1865, Capt. William Henry Harder of the Twenty-third Tennessee departed Virginia bound for his home. The thirty-five-year-old had served through the entire four years of war. In 1861, he had raised a company of nearly one hundred men from the Cedar Creek area of Perry County, Tennessee. Outfitted in uniforms sewn by Harder's mother and other local women, the company marched off to war, seeing action at Fort Donelson and then Shiloh, where its captain was wounded and taken prisoner. Harder spent the next few months recovering at Camp Douglas before returning to his command in the fall of 1862. During the following two years, Harder and his men fought at Stones River and Chickamauga before ... Read More

  • When Service Is Not Enough: Charity's Purpose in the Immediate Aftermath
           of the Civil War
    • Abstract: In September 1863, the U.S. Sanitary Commission (USSC)'s Special Relief Committee of the Women's Pennsylvania Branch reported its monthly activities to the organization's Board of Managers. "To thirteen persons an allowance of $1.00 weekly is approved. The persons so aided are Worthy discharged soldiers, who have contracted disease in the service + are unable to work for the support of their families." True, "some who are now deserving may be overlooked," the secretary admitted, "but the committee feel that of these now aided, none are unworthy."1 The final line of the report is telling. Better to let a deserving applicant slip through the cracks, the report implied, than provide relief for the undeserving.Here, in ... Read More

  • "Every Comfort, Freedom, and Liberty": A Case Study of Mississippi's
           Confederate Home
    • Abstract: In the early 1930s, three aging men entered the Jefferson Davis Soldiers' Home—commonly known as Beauvoir—in Biloxi, Mississippi. They were Confederate pensioners who suffered under such persistent poverty that the state admitted them to its facility for Confederate veterans, wives, and widows. Two of the men, Frank Childress and Nathan Best, each bore signs of wartime injuries; one of Best's injuries was so severe that it required the amputation of his arm. None of this made these men exceptional cases at the home. What was exceptional was that all three men—Childress, Best, and James Burney—had been enslaved Confederate body servants during the Civil War. This made them eligible for pensions from the state of ... Read More

  • Union Veteran Migration Patterns to the Frontier: The Case of Dakota
           Territory
    • Abstract: John Lawlor Jolley's path to Dakota Territory reflected the experiences of many of the Civil War veterans who made their way to the American West in the decades following their military service. Jolley, who was born in 1840 in Montreal, Canada, to Irish immigrants, led an antebellum life characterized by mobility and migration. His family left Montreal when John was five years old but remained in Canada. Perhaps driven by the recent death of his mother, Jolley left school at age twelve and took up the harness-making trade, becoming a journeyman harness maker by the time he was sixteen. One year later, he struck out on his own, left Canada, and migrated to Portage, Wisconsin, to practice his newly mastered ... Read More

  • When the Hurlyburly's Done / When the Battle's Lost and Won: Service,
           Suffering, and Survival of Civil War and Great War Veterans
    • Abstract: Marching in the Gettysburg Liberty Parade in May 1918 was a drum corps consisting entirely of Civil War veterans.1 As local citizens demonstrated their patriotism—notably with the Kaiser hanging in effigy—the old soldiers helped keep the pace for two thousand citizens who turned out to vigorously support the Great War. It was no doubt a moving moment, the nation's largest veteran demographic encouraging and supporting the next generation of soldiers to fight for cause and country in a very different war waged on a very different continent. Though fifty years separated the trenches of Petersburg from those of the western front, for one moment, the men who fought in the nation's bloodiest war marched alongside ... Read More

  • The Dawn of Detroit: A Chronicle of Slavery and Freedom in the City of the
           Straits by Tiya Miles (review)
    • Abstract: In recent decades, nationwide news articles have underscored devastation, decline, and decay in their descriptions of the current state of Detroit. References to Detroit's heyday usually harken back to its distinction as the "Motor City" and the birthplace of Motown Records. In The Dawn of Detroit: A Chronicle of Slavery and Freedom in the City of the Straits, Tiya Miles exquisitely excavates and reconstructs "a chronicle of Detroit, an alternative origin story that privileges people in bondage, many of whom launched gripping pursuits of dignity, autonomy, and liberty" (2). Her book unveils the quilted and vexed history of Detroit's multinational, multiracial, multilingual, and multicultural past—composed of ... Read More

  • Great Crossings: Indians, Settlers, and Slaves in the Age of Jackson by
           Christina Snyder (review)
    • Abstract: Christina Snyder's new book, Great Crossings: Indians, Settlers, and Slaves in the Age of Jackson, simultaneously tells a small story—that of Richard Mentor Johnson's Choctaw Academy—and the biggest story in U.S. (and possibly modern global) history—the birth of the empire that would eventually transform the world. Snyder masterfully illustrates how the community of Great Crossings, Kentucky, the home of Johnson's academy, "embodied the meeting of space, cultures, and time that distinguished the period between the War of 1812 and the coming of the Civil War" (15–16). The "adolescent empire," she argues, offered optimism and possibility, but ultimately "coalesced around principles of intolerance, exclusion, and ... Read More

  • The Lost Founding Father: John Quincy Adams and the Transformation of
           American Politics by William J. Cooper (review)
    • Abstract: In this exceptional biography of John Quincy Adams, William J. Cooper examines the remarkable life of the sixth president while using Adams's expansive career to describe how American politics changed over his lifetime. Cooper writes that Adams's defeat by Andrew Jackson in the presidential election of 1828 "signaled the beginning of a popular politics buttressed by organized, vigorous political parties. . . . Never again could a presidential candidate claim to wear a mantle that had literally been possessed by the Founding Fathers" (258).Although the title of Cooper's book casts him as a "lost" Founding Father, it may be more useful to think of Adams as the last one—the final in a line of American leaders who did ...

  • Medicalizing Blackness: Making Racial Difference in the Atlantic World,
           1780–1840 by Rana A. Hogarth (review)
    • Abstract: Rana A. Hogarth's Medicalizing Blackness examines how white physicians in the Greater Caribbean defined blackness as a clinically significant marker of difference. Their efforts helped to sanction white control over black bodies, both slave and free. However, the writings of these physicians in the decades surrounding the turn of the eighteenth century were not simply a byproduct of the growing proslavery ideology. Although the claims physicians made about the perceived peculiarities of black bodies served those who wanted to justify slavery, Hogarth argues that, before the 1840s, professional authority and financial gain were the most important factors driving such claims.Hogarth divides her study thematically ...

  • Medical Bondage: Race, Gender, and the Origins of American Gynecology by
           Deirdre Cooper Owens (review)
    • Abstract: In this cleverly titled book, Deirdre Cooper Owens uses the intersection of class, gender, medicine, and authority to study enslaved black and Irish women's bodies in the evolution of gynecology as a medical specialty during the early to mid-nineteenth century. Whites knew that "black women literally carried the race and extended the existence of slavery in their wombs" (8), but studying reproductive health on slave plantations, and among Irish immigrant women, is difficult. Owens faced many problems, but detailed census records opened the way to explore the issue of babies born during medical experimentation, which in turn opened the door to the world of enslaved gynecological subjects. Owens applies a ... Read More

  • The Trouble with Minna: A Case of Slavery and Emancipation in the
           Antebellum North by Hendrik Hartog (review)
    • Abstract: Despite its self-effacing title, this slender book invigorates the study of gradual abolition in the first four decades of the nineteenth century by focusing on how courts interpreted the laws that defined the era. Hendrik Hartog uses a dispute in northeastern New Jersey over who bore the responsibility for the care of a partially blind African American woman named Minna to examine with extraordinary care, specificity, and nuance the extended gradual emancipation process. He argues that the legal regime that freed the children of enslaved mothers while binding those children to service created ambiguities and opportunities exploited by whites and by blacks in different ways. Time-bounded servitude encouraged ... Read More

  • Civic Longing: The Speculative Origins of U.S. Citizenship by Carrie Hyde
           (review)
    • Abstract: What role does the imagination play at a time of national crisis' That question is at the heart of Carrie Hyde's recent book, Civic Longing: The Speculative Origins of U.S. Citizenship. In it, Hyde discusses the political and cultural history of citizenship in the United States before the Civil War. Disputes over the meaning of citizenship were commonplace in the antebellum era, and citizenship played a central role in the legal reforms of the Reconstruction era. While historians and legal scholars have thus explored legal precedents in depth to understand the meaning of citizenship in the Reconstruction era, Hyde, an English professor, brings a unique perspective to this discussion by exploring the cultural ...

  • The F Street Mess: How Southern Senators Rewrote the Kansas-Nebraska Act
           by Alice Elizabeth Malavasic (review)
    • Abstract: The story of the infamous "F Street Mess" has been given an insightful book-length treatment. In the introduction to her book, Alice Elizabeth Malavasic recalls the pervasive belief among northern politicians of the existence of a slave power in national politics. From there, she argues that messmates and senators Robert M. T. Hunter and James M. Mason of Virginia, Andrew P. Butler of South Carolina, and David Rice Atchison of Missouri indeed conspired together and formed the "most powerful bloc in the U.S. Senate" during the 1850s, most clearly revealed in their ability to repeal the Missouri Compromise as part of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 (8).In her analysis, Malavasic echoes the interpretation of Roy F. ...

  • American Sectionalism in the British Mind, 1832–1863 by Peter
           O'Connor (review)
    • Abstract: In the winter of 1860–61, Americans had a choice to make. Would the Union continue to survive intact as it had, or would the election of Abraham Lincoln prove momentous enough to finally rend the union of the states' The choice they made inaugurated the bloodiest conflict in the nation's history. But Americans were not alone in making a choice. Nations, primarily in Europe, decided between Union and Confederacy just as Americans did at home. Nowhere else was this decision as important as it was in Great Britain. Peter O'Connor's American Sectionalism in the British Mind, 1832–1862 examines the dilemma British elites faced in deciding whether to support the North or the South. O'Connor's study follows from the ... Read More

  • Frederick Douglass: America's Prophet by D. H. Dilbeck (review)
    • Abstract: In this concise biography, D. H. Dilbeck focuses on the development of Frederick Douglass's prophetic Christianity and its "core moral and theological convictions" as integral to his political activism (6). The book is divided into three parts. The first, "The Seeking Slave, 1818–1838," focuses on Douglass's childhood of enslavement in Maryland through his daring escape to the North. Using Douglass's autobiographies as his source, Dilbeck juxtaposes Douglass's critique of Christian slaveholders with his encounters with black Methodism in order to illustrate his emerging prophetic consciousness. In part 2, "The Zealous Orator, 1839–1852," Dilbeck traces Douglass's career as a political activist in the North and ... Read More
