  • Ancient Metropolis: Prehistoric Cincinnati
    • Abstract: No subject connected with the Ohio Valley from the late eighteenth through the late nineteenth century elicited more scientific and popular interest than the prehistoric Indian mounds and earthworks that formed such a conspicuous feature of the landscape. The novel and curious subject of American antiquities appealed to those of an empirical bent as well as those with more romantic inclinations. Those remains struck a chord of cultural nationalism in a young republic in search of native grounds and national identity. What could be more original and American than the aboriginal monuments encountered during the western expansion of the nation' While little was known about the mounds and their contents, the very ...

  • Voting with Their Arms: Civil War Military Enlistments and the Formation
           of West Virginia, 1861–1865
    • Abstract: Few today associate West Virginia with slavery. Dating back to the state's formation in 1863, historians have asserted that the loyal mountaineer population rejected Virginia's secession because the western part of the state had virtually no connection to the "peculiar institution." On his inauguration day, the new state's first governor affirmed a thesis about West Virginia's formation that persists to this day. Arthur I. Boreman opined in his inaugural address that eastern neglect led to the state's formation. Representatives from eastern Virginia exercised disproportionate influence at the state capitol in Richmond and, he argued, used tax revenue to support improvements in their part of the state at the expense ...

  • Insanity in Civil War Ohio
    • Abstract: During the Civil War, who suffered war-related mental breakdowns so severe that they were admitted to Ohio's insane asylums' Patient records that became accessible to the public in 2016 provide an answer to that question. Individuals can be identified by name and situated within the war's unfolding events. Their behavior before their admission in the hospital can be observed, and some notion of their medical and psychological treatment can be gleaned from the records. This newly available evidence represents one small chapter in the history of humanity's recurring struggles with mental illness and offers important insights into the psychological trauma wrought by the Civil War.1During the 1850s, it was a truism in ...

  • Preserving the Photography of the Braun Sisters
    • Abstract: Sisters Annette and E. Lucy Braun were scientists who lived and worked in Cincinnati, Ohio during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Annette was born on August 28, 1884, and her sister Emma Lucy was born on April 19, 1889.During a time when few women in the United States pursued careers in higher education, each of the Braun sisters became respected scholars and researchers in her field. Annette, an entomologist, became the first woman to earn her PhD from the University of Cincinnati, in 1911. E. Lucy became the second woman to earn a PhD from the same university in 1914, when she graduated with a degree in botany.1Annette and E. Lucy made significant scientific contributions in their fields and were active ... Read More

  • An Englishman in a Kentucky Regiment: The Civil War Letters of Robert Winn
    • Abstract: But let us look at the nature of the war going on - is slavery likely to be interfered with' If so by which party, and how' Would a restoration of the union at the present time not help to strengthen slavery and save it from destruction' Would a long protracted war not be the means of its destruction'1The letters of Robert Fletcher Winn form part of the Winn-Cook Family Papers held at the Filson Historical Society. Between 1861 and 1865, millions of Americans like Winn marched off to war with the expectation that they could maintain contact with their home communities via the mail. From his first days in training camp in Kentucky to his last campaign in North Carolina, Winn maintained a steady stream of ... Read More

  • Bringing the Civil War Home: Local History and the Ohio Valley
    • Abstract: The Ohio Valley is American history's great laboratory. Few other regions of the country give scholars as representative a sample (to borrow from our friends in the hard sciences) of the United States in all the nation's maddening and fascinating complexity. The experiments we can conduct in this region are necessarily more complex than those in homogeneous regions elsewhere but are ever more telling for when we apply historical lessons to our own time. Historical middle America, contrary to its popular contemporary image, is a region not of representative American homogeneity but rather of representative American diversity.Yet it is a hard region to study for the same reasons that make it attractive.

  • Bluegrass Music: Sounds and People in Motion
    • Abstract: Bill Monroe's song "Heavy Traffic Ahead" is a glimpse of the working life of a musician in the mid-1940s, hinting at the kinds of work that filled the days and nights of culture workers in the still-forming country music industry. There is loading up on the run, driving from state to state, playing in town after town—and returning to a home base; in Monroe's case, Nashville, Tennessee, and weekend shows on the WSM radio station that were a mainstay of his career. In their recently released biographies of Curly Seckler and Bill Clifton, Penny Parsons and Bill C. Malone have added to this historical perspective, showing bluegrass as music on the move. One of the common threads running through Parson's and Malone's ... Read More

  • Dividing the Union: Jesse Burgess Thomas and the Making of the Missouri
           Compromise by Matthew W. Hall (review)
    • Abstract: When the average student of early-nineteenth-century America recalls the great political leaders of that era, Senator Jesse B. Thomas of Illinois does not immediately spring to mind. That able—if unassuming—legislator, best known for proposing the Missouri Compromise's 36°30' line of demarcation between slave and free territory, is generally mentioned in passing while titans such as Henry Clay occupy center stage. In Dividing the Union, Mathew W. Hall has endeavored to give Thomas his due, utilizing the narrative of his subject's successive migrations and his progress up the political ladder as a lens through which to understand the issue of slavery in the early republic.Born in Maryland in 1775, Jesse Thomas moved ...

  • Pembroke: A Rural, Black Community on the Illinois Dunes by Dave Baron
           (review)
    • Abstract: Pembroke, Illinois, is off the beaten track along the Illinois—Indiana state line about seventy-five miles south of Chicago and twenty miles east of Interstate 57. Nestled in the poor farming country of the Illinois dunes, the township is home to just over two thousand people, mostly African Americans who moved there to escape urban life and establish a rural community. In Pembroke: A Rural, Black Community on the Illinois Dunes, Dave Baron brings the people of Pembroke to life and draws a picture of a community that belies scholarly and popular stereotypes about where and how African Americans live, particularly low-income families. Baron is a white lawyer from Chicago who spent time in Pembroke as a teenager on a ... Read More

  • For Their Own Cause: The 27th United States Colored Troops by Kelly D.
           Mezurek (review)
    • Abstract: In recent years, a number of excellent studies of the U.S. Colored Troops (USCT) have appeared, providing more and more analysis and understanding of the role of African American participation in the Civil War. To this list of outstanding monographs, one must add Kelly Mezurek's For Their Own Cause, a survey of the wartime and postwar activities of the 27th USCT. Although created late in the conflict, the unit was present at many of the major events of the late months of the war. Organized in January 1864, the 27th participated in the siege operations around Petersburg, the capture of Wilmington, and surrender of Confederate armies in the East. Mezurek completes the history of the 27th with a thorough account of ... Read More

  • Kentucky and the Great War: World War I on the Homefront by David J.
           Bettez (review)
    • Abstract: David Bettez's book presents a detailed state history of domestic mobilization during the nineteen months in which the United States was directly involved in wartime hostilities during the First World War (April 1917–November 1918). He outlines Kentuckians' largely enthusiastic responses to food conservation policies, fuel conservation, war bond drives, conscription, and other wartime measures, all of which amounted to an unprecedented governmental involvement in individuals' everyday lives. At the outset, Bettez indicates that Kentucky presents an important case study for historians' work on the home front during the Great War, since the state was both "progressive" in its legislative efforts, and "regressive" in ...

  • Engineering Victory: How Technology Won the Civil War by Thomas F. Army Jr
           (review)
    • Abstract: Engineering Victory: How Technology Won the Civil War by Thomas F. Army Jr. examines the convergence of military engineering and technological innovation as a decisive factor in the outcome of the Civil War. The author contends that effective application of engineering expertise in the Union army, matched against simultaneous engineering shortcomings and missteps within the Confederate army, tipped the balance in favor of northern victory. As such, the book's subtitle is slightly misleading; while the author does examine the implementation of military technology during the Civil War, his primary focus is on army engineers, their training, and their military effectiveness. Navies are largely overlooked, despite ... Read More

  • The Dealmakers of Downstate Illinois: Paul Powell, Clyde L. Choate, and
           John H. Stelle by Robert E. Hartley (review)
    • Abstract: Politics is sometimes described as the art of the possible. And while politics is not always artfully and elegantly conducted, political history nonetheless offers many exemplars of effective practitioners—masters of the quid pro quo. The political culture of downstate Illinois in the mid- and late twentieth century produced three such consummate politicians in the persons of Paul Taylor Powell (1902–1970), Clyde Lee Choate (1920–2001), and John Henry Stelle (1891–1962). All found common ground in small towns and became power brokers in southern Illinois. They worked both sides of the aisle in the Illinois General Assembly, forging coalitions that brought their constituents jobs and new facilities, including ... Read More
