  • Introduction: Federalism in the Civil War Era
    • Abstract: This special issue focuses on the role of federalism in the Civil War era, primarily in the years before the war. Federalism—or the distribution of power among different governing bodies—defined how most nineteenth-century Americans understood their relationship to the government, both in theory and in practice.1 These men and women did not simply interact with the government and the law; rather, they were forced to navigate the complex relationships and overlapping authorities among the various governing bodies and regulations that made up the federal system.Until recently, Civil War–era political and legal historians primarily viewed federalism as a binary—as the relationship between the federal government and ...

  • The Legal World of Elizabeth Bagby's Commonplace Book: Federalism, Women,
           and Governance
    • Abstract: The commonplace book that Elizabeth Bagby kept in the 1820s and 1830s might not seem related to federalism, but it is. Bagby, a white married woman who lived on a modest Virginia plantation, began it with a remarkable inscription. In the family account, she wrote, "Charge yourself for every article bot [sic] for, and used . . . whether to eat, drink, wear, furniture for the House or Kitchen . . . Doctors Fees &c &c." But "such things as you pay for, in weaving, in butter, cloth or any thing made entirely within yourself, it may be as well to take no acct of, except in way of memorandum."1 What on earth did she mean' Bagby was referring to the fact that free married women could claim property and act as their own ...

  • The People's Revolution of 1856: Antislavery Populism, National Politics,
           and the Emergence of the Republican Party
    • Abstract: The first Republican convention began with a call for popular uprising. In Philadelphia on June 16, 1856, the night before the official party meeting began, crowds gathered at Twelfth and Market Streets for a series of "revolutionary speeches." The first man on the podium was California delegate John Alexander Wills. A longtime abolitionist and Liberty Party veteran, Willis would later contribute the iconic phrase that headlined the Republican platform, arraigning slavery and polygamy as "twin relics of barbarism."1 But now, on convention eve, he boasted to the raucous outdoor crowd that he had just witnessed an inspiring "popular revolution" in San Francisco. A self-styled "Vigilance Committee" had taken control ... Read More

  • Devolved Democracy: Federalism and the Party Politics of the Late
           Antebellum North
    • Abstract: Late antebellum northern politics was full of seeming anomalies that do not fit into standard historical narratives of a national two-party system of ideologically distant Republicans and Democrats. When we delve into state politics, we quickly encounter slaveholding, popular sovereignty, and states' rights Republicans; free labor and protectionist Democrats; and a two-party system composed of three, four, or sometimes five parties. Such apparent quirks begin to make sense, however, when one accounts for the many ways that federalism shaped politics in the antebellum United States. This article draws on evidence from the late 1850s to offer a guide to the ideas, structures, and mechanisms that made American ... Read More

  • Vagabond Voters and Racial Suffrage in Jacksonian-Era Pennsylvania
    • Abstract: In 1837, delegates in Harrisburg argued over African American suffrage as they amended the Pennsylvania constitution. Democrats wanted to change the provision that allowed for black voting. The arguments for such an act involved more than racism, overlapping with class-based worries of the harm that could come if a coalition formed of black and white indigent and transient voters. Some hoped to overturn a constitutional provision requiring taxes to be paid in order to vote, but a delegate from Lancaster County warned against this move. He declared that the loss of an economic restriction would attract what one scholar has termed indigent transients and who he called "the vicious vagrant, the wandering Arabs, the ... Read More

  • State Sovereignty and Migration before Reconstruction
    • Abstract: The U.S. Supreme Court interpreted the Constitution's fugitive slave clause and the 1793 Fugitive Slave Act for the first time in the 1842 case of Prigg v. Pennsylvania. The Constitution provided that slaves who escaped from their home state would be "delivered up" when their owners claimed them. Yet the 1793 federal law designed to enforce that provision did not specify legal procedures by which slaveowners and their agents would establish their claims on alleged runaways, nor did it explicitly state which public officials were charged with enforcement. Amid rising antislavery sentiment, free state legislatures had entered the arena, establishing procedures intended to create some semblance of fair legal process ... Read More

  • The Threat of Consolidation: States' Rights and American Discourses of
           Nation and Empire in the Nineteenth Century
    • Abstract: A paradox of U.S. history has been Americans' commitment to limiting the power of their national government—often articulated as a defense of states' rights—amid that same government's rise to a continental and then world power. Connecting nineteenth-century debates over federalism with the intertwined discourses of nation and empire, this essay explores that contradiction by examining how states' rights advocates used the term "consolidation" to critique the emerging concept of the nation-state. It deals with political discourse, or patterns of ideas repeated and shared over time.

  • They Were Her Property: White Women as Slave Owners in the American South
           by Stephanie E. Jones-Rogers (review)
    • Abstract: Almost fifty years ago, Anne Firor Scott's The Southern Lady: From Pedestal to Politics, 1830–1930 (1970) changed the image of the white woman in slaveholding southern families from that of the frivolous belle to the plantation mistress with a host of responsibilities. In the flood of scholarly writings that followed, notions about these privileged white women have taken many forms. Inflected by the second wave of feminism, these analyses sometimes made women appear victims of the southern patriarchy. In contrast, scholars such as Elizabeth Fox-Genovese believed that although the plantation mistresses lacked power, even in the household, they nonetheless were deeply complicit in supporting the institution of ...

  • Accounting for Slavery: Masters and Management by Caitlin Rosenthal
           (review)
    • Abstract: Over the past two decades, historians have developed narratives around the history of capitalism in which slavery stands at the center of the nineteenth century's economic transformations. Slavery was not rooted in a precapitalist aristocratic mentality, but rather was one of the engines of the industrial revolution. Slaveholders were sharp-dealing, entrepreneurial, and sometimes brutal landlords and labor lords that supplied the raw materials (sugar, tobacco, and cotton) that fueled the rise of transatlantic commerce. Up to this point, economic historians and new historians of capitalism agree. Where the old and new interpretations diverge is on the centrality of slavery to capitalism itself. The new literature ... Read More

  • Appealing for Liberty: Freedom Suits in the South by Loren Schweninger
           (review)
    • Abstract: Appealing for Liberty is a significant new addition to the scholarship of slavery, providing a wide-ranging analysis of enslaved people's legal action to gain freedom in the U.S. South from the Revolutionary period to the Civil War. While other analyses of freedom suits have often focused on particular states, Loren Schweninger draws on his many years as a director of the Race and Slavery Petitions Project at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro to examine an especially broad range of suits, analyzing 2,023 freedom suits across fifteen slaveholding states and the District of Columbia. Most of these cases took place in the Upper South, where the path to freedom remained more accessible throughout the ... Read More

  • The Gods of Indian Country: Religion and the Struggle for the American
           West by Jennifer Graber (review)
    • Abstract: Seeking to challenge notions of U.S. exceptionalism, historians of the nineteenth-century American West have in recent years replaced older frameworks such as "conquest" and "expansionism" with newer models, especially "empire" and "settler colonialism." This shift encourages transnational comparisons and invokes global contexts. Despite the centrality of religion to imperial and settler colonial projects worldwide, Western scholars have largely neglected religion as a causal force. Jennifer Graber's excellent The Gods of Indian Country demonstrates religion's power in shaping the trajectories of settler colonialism and U.S. empire-building. She convincingly argues that religion was crucial to the processes of ... Read More

  • Frederick Douglass: Prophet of Freedom by David W. Blight (review)
    • Abstract: David W. Blight dons his public intellectual hat in this long-awaited new biography of Frederick Douglass, one of the nineteenth century's most important human rights activists. The first major biography of Douglass in more than a generation, Blight's book was ten years in the making, and well worth the wait. The last major Douglass biography, William S. McFeely's Frederick Douglass (1991), overreached in interpretation and introduced a host of minor and unnecessary inaccuracies into the canon of Douglass scholarship. Blight's volume adds to other recent works in providing a major corrective to the historiography dominated by McFeely and others who relied almost exclusively on Douglass's own writings, especially ...

  • The War for the Common Soldier: How Men Thought, Fought, and Survived in
           Civil War Armies by Peter S. Carmichael (review)
    • Abstract: This book is not your father's history of Civil War soldiers—at least not if your father liked to read Bell I. Wiley, or any of the other historians who have contributed to one of the deepest and most satisfying historiographies of the Civil War era. In The War for the Common Soldier, Peter Carmichael sets out not to examine motivations or ideology, but to explore "the life of the rank and file as it was lived" (10).Carmichael believes that the war forced soldiers in the North and South to bridge the gulf between two competing impulses. "Sentimentalism" helped soldiers understand war as a series of hardships and sacrifices that could be endured through faith, courage, and patriotism. Confronting this conventional ... Read More

  • War Stuff: The Struggle for Human and Environmental Resources in the
           American Civil War by Joan E. Cashin (review)
    • Abstract: In this deeply researched book, Joan Cashin explores the struggle between soldiers and civilians over human and material resources during the Civil War. The historical record exudes southern privation and destruction, but Cashin pursues more elusive dimensions of this problem. She seeks individual cases of seizure and loss, the mentalities of soldiers who plundered, and the bureaucracies that failed to account for rampant theft and ruin. Unearthing the Confederate side of these issues is particularly daunting because government documents burned or vanished in 1865. Cashin studies extensive archival sources to overcome this challenge. By relying on personal correspondence, diaries, court-martial records ... Read More

  • War Matters: Material Culture in the Civil War Era ed. by Joan E. Cashin
           (review)
    • Abstract: Relics and ragged haversacks, bullet-riddled books, bowie knives and bodily fluids, even the rocks and water of the battlefield itself might seem to be the leftover detritus of war, stuff that could easily be lost on the tides of history. But in the hands of the twelve authors brought together here by Joan Cashin, such flotsam is transformed into archival treasure, showing us how Americans engaged with, endured, and survived the war in fascinating new ways. Individually, the essays all add new depth to debates over soldiers' motivations and civilians' loyalties, sectional tensions and military operations, and the process of Reconstruction writ large. But the collection is more than the sum of its parts. Together ... Read More

  • Upon the Fields of Battle: Essays on the Military History of America's
           Civil War ed. by Andrew S. Bledsoe and Andrew F. Lang (review)
    • Abstract: Sturm und Drang continually surrounds the question of the place of military historians and their labors in Civil War literature and the historical profession. The most recent noteworthy shots fired in this debate are two essays published in December 2014: one by Earl J. Hess in Civil War History and the other by Gary W. Gallagher and Kathyrn Shively Meier in the Journal of the Civil War Era.1 While offering interesting takes on the matter, it is rather difficult to believe these essays will lead to any kind of resolution to the debate anytime soon—even if historians want or need it, and it is not altogether clear that they really do. If nothing else, one can point to one positive consequence these essays have ... Read More

  • Contested Loyalty: Debates over Patriotism in the Civil War North ed. by
           Robert M. Sandow (review)
    • Abstract: The northern home front has slowly become a subject of scholars' attention in the past generation. What we see emerging upends an earlier narrative of a monolithic North—rich, populous, and united in its support of the war effort. Instead, the story that is coming into focus is one rife with dissent. The fault lines are not a real surprise: working class versus middle class and wealthy, immigrant versus native, worker versus employer. The most consistent point of division, however, is political partisanship. This fundamental divide has become increasingly apparent as students of the Civil War have started digging into questions that played out in a variety of ways throughout the conflict: What is loyalty' What is ...

  • The Most Complete Political Machine Ever Known: The North's Union Leagues
           in the American Civil War by Paul Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: Union victory in the American Civil War required maintaining civilian support behind the lines as surely as it required the defeat of the Confederate military. More than a million northerners met this need by joining Union Leagues: semisecretive societies designed to promote unconditional loyalty to the Lincoln administration and to quash treason. In the first book-length treatment of Union Leagues, Paul Taylor provides an engaging study that documents their critical contributions to the war effort and speaks to multiple historiographical debates concerning nationalism, politics, and treason on the northern home front.Taylor begins with a brief look at prewar antecedents—sociopolitical organizations such as the ...

  • Embattled Freedom: Journeys through the Civil War's Slave Refugee Camps by
           Amy Murrell Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: From the prologue to the epilogue, Embattled Freedom offers a compelling account of how African American refugees' search for freedom pushed the nation toward abolition. By surveying approximately three hundred settlements, Amy Murrell Taylor argues that these freedom seekers reappropriated centers of the domestic slave trade and turned them into sites of freedom, transformed military occupation sites into refugee camps, and forged new lives in the heart of war zones. Taylor meticulously recovers the history of these erased settlements and the African American lives transformed therein.Throughout, Taylor takes seriously how much of this transformation was "embedded in military conflict" (11). It was a complex ... Read More

  • Race over Party: Black Politics and Partisanship in Late
           Nineteenth-Century Boston by Millington W. Bergeson-Lockwood (review)
    • Abstract: In Race over Party, Millington W. Bergeson-Lockwood explores a fierce battle waged by a group of African Americans in Boston who recognized the peril of attaching their political fortunes to a Republican Party that had become apathetic to questions of civil rights. By criticizing the party of Lincoln, and later strategically casting votes for Democratic candidates, black independents "stood steadfast in their dedication to racial solidarity over partisanship." While initially seeking "partisan middle ground," black independents eventually "were willing to risk Democratic victories if that meant sending the message to both parties that African Americans no longer would be mere pawns in electoral politics" (6).

  • Denmark Vesey's Garden: Slavery and Memory in the Cradle of the
           Confederacy by Ethan J. Kytle and Blain Roberts (review)
    • Abstract: This study is, as Ethan Kytle and Blain Roberts note, the first to "trace the memory of slavery from its abolition in 1865 to the present" in Charleston, South Carolina (4). By taking this long view, the authors uncover not only the processes by which Lost Cause proponents constructed and reinforced the city's dominant narrative of race relations, but also, significantly, an ongoing history of challenges to this narrative from black Charlestonians. Building on the work of David Blight, W. Fitzhugh Brundage, and others, as well as Stephanie Yuhl's study of the emergence of Charleston's historic preservation movement,1 this project gained added urgency with the tragedy of the Mother Emanuel massacre in June 2015, in ...

  • This War Ain't Over: Fighting the Civil War in New Deal America by Nina
           Silber (review)
    • Abstract: This War Ain't Over provides a fascinating exploration of "how Americans used a troubled past," not just the Civil War but also slavery and Reconstruction, "to navigate a complicated present," the Great Depression and World War II (1). In the midst of the suffering of the Depression, Nina Silber shows, Americans turned their attention to the Civil War, an earlier national trial that foretold ultimate survival and "shaped a history that often spoke directly to their present-day political concerns" (2). Silber has done extensive research in a wide variety of sources and wisely and carefully shows how various groups viewed that troubled past differently and employed its memory for differing purposes. She looks at ... Read More
