  • Ginseng, China, and the Transformation of the Ohio Valley, 1783–1840
    • Abstract: It may have been growing among the old-growth chestnuts on the side of Little Mountain. Or perhaps it had matured under the butternut trees on the banks of Turkey Creek. Somewhere near the brand-new hamlet of Union in the western Virginia backcountry in October of 1783, a Scots-Irishman named William Ewing spotted a small plant among the deep green understory. He saw the cluster of bright red berries perched atop a peduncle that protruded from the center of the twenty-inch-high herb. He counted the leaves. It had four. His heart beat a little faster. It probably had a large root. Ewing knew this root by itself could provide him with a knife, a pair of spectacles, a pound of gunpowder, a bushel of salt, or maybe a ... Read More

  • The Man Who Moved the Bridge: Cincinnati's Roebling Suspension Bridge and
           Its Inconvenient Site
    • Abstract: With the recent redesign of Cincinnati's waterfront and the creation of Smale Waterfront Park, Cincinnatians are now more closely connected to the water's edge and the John A. Roebling Bridge than they have been in decades. As the bridge, which celebrates its 150th birthday this year, has been knit back into the city's pedestrian experience, visitors are reminded of its inconvenient location. To access it requires a series of turns off the main north-south streets and then another series of turns to get back onto them on the other side. The bridge's engineer, the world-famous John A. Roebling, described the less-than-ideal location in his 1867 final report to the bridge company. He wrote, "As it is, both approaches ... Read More

  • "High School Girls": Women's Higher Education at the Louisville Female
           High School
    • Abstract: In our city, at least, the importance of female education is fully realized. All classes of our citizens look with a degree of pardonable pride upon this school, which is unexcelled by any similar institution in this or any other country. Girls are there given equal advantages with the boys, and fully qualify themselves to adorn any sphere of life, whether it be of the light graces of cultivated literature, or in that more solid learning which fits them to battle with adversity or to reason away unfounded and pernicious prejudices.As late as 1905, Emma Woerner (who would become the first principal of Louisville's J. M. Atherton High School for girls in 1924) was able to enter University of Kentucky as a junior ... Read More

  • Connections in the Collections: Cincinnati Museum Center's Enno Meyer
           Collection
    • Abstract: Cincinnati Museum Center's Enno Meyer Collection was donated to the Ethnology Department of the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History (now part of Cincinnati Museum Center) in the 1980s and comprises original photographic prints and glass negatives of American Indians, an assortment of American Indian artifacts, a handful of letters and some miscellaneous papers. Although small, this collection illuminates an interesting episode in a multifaceted Cincinnatian's young life and in Cincinnati's history. The collection and the story behind it are thoroughly described elsewhere, but a brief retelling is necessary here.1Enno Meyer (1874–1947) began his photography career when he was a boy by working in his father's ...

  • Full of Charm and Variety: The Scrapbook Collection of the Filson
           Historical Society
    • Abstract: Scrapbooking is not a recent phenomenon; the history of turning a book into an album filled with ephemera dates back to the Middle Ages, when it was quite common for well-educated people to keep diaries or journals that recorded their thoughts on life's activities and events around them. Perhaps the earliest known surviving journal is the Journal d'un bourgeois de Paris (The diary of a bourgeois from Paris.) Written by an anonymous French priest sometime between 1409 and 1449, this personal account of fifteenth-century life in France is a treasure trove for historians.1During the nineteenth century, the emergence and increased accessibility of printed material sparked a new trend. People began filling blank, bound ... Read More

  • Toward a New Railroad History': Limitations and Possibilities
    • Abstract: The role of the railroad in the development of nineteenth-century America was so vast as to defy comprehensive understanding, yet most academic historians no longer give railroads much consideration. One can fill a local historical society meeting with a lecture entitled "The Railroads in this Town," and the Transcontinental Railroad is still ubiquitous in college textbooks and lectures. The same can be said, albeit diminishing by the year, of the tumultuous connection between the railroads and the Progressive Era (moment, movement, period—take your pick). As a consequence, both the nitty-gritty detail and the epic stories of success and failure have faded from the consciousness of the general public, the recent ... Read More

  • Race, Paternalism, and Educational Reform in the Twentieth-Century South
    • Abstract: Two new historical works from the University Press of Kentucky, Sam F. Stack Jr.'s The Arthurdale Community School: Education and Reform in Depression Era Appalachia and Andrew McNeill Canady's Willis Duke Weatherford: Race, Religion, and Reform in the American South, examine the efforts of reforming individuals and institutions to alleviate poverty in the South and southern Appalachia from the Progressive Era through the modern civil rights movement. Stack explores the history of the Arthurdale school, a New Deal–era program designed to aid West Virginia miners affected by the decline of the coal industry, while Canady uses the biography of Willis Duke Weatherford (1875–1970) to trace the evolution of southern ...

  • A Rape in the Early Republic: Gender and Legal Culture in an 1806 Virginia
           Trial, by Alexander Smyth. Edited by Randal L. Hall (review)
    • Abstract: Randal L. Hall has given us a gem of a book. When Virginia put John Deskins, a middling farmer of Tazewell County, on trial in 1806 for the rape of Sidney Hanson, the wife of another middling farmer, prosecuting attorney Alexander Smyth gave the closing argument for the Commonwealth. The trial garnered much attention in the community, and some enterprising gentlemen asked Smyth to write a pamphlet detailing as much of it as he could remember, presumably in the hope of selling it commercially. Smyth obliged, but the pamphlet seems never to have been printed for public consumption. Instead, the ambitious lawyer included the account of Sidney Hanson's rape trial as part of a larger collection of his own political ... Read More

  • The Jacksonian Conservatism of Rufus P. Ranney: The Politics and
           Jurisprudence of a Northern Democrat from the Age of Jackson to the Gilded
           Age, by David M. Gold (review)
    • Abstract: What did it mean to be a "radical" in the context of mid-nineteenth century American politics' A "conservative"' A proponent of "limited government"' These are some of the questions explored by historian and independent scholar, David M. Gold, who has ably integrated legal, political, economic, and biographical history in his examination of the life and career of Rufus P. Ranney, a lawyer, jurist, and Jacksonian Democrat from Ohio. Gold finds in Ranney an individual who started out as a "Radical Democrat" in the 1840s but thought of himself as a laissez-faire conservative in the 1870s. While on the surface this would suggest a major reversal, in fact, as Gold argues, Ranney consistently defended individual property ... Read More

  • Driven toward Madness: The Fugitive Slave Margaret Garner and Tragedy on
           the Ohio, by Nikki M. Taylor (review)
    • Abstract: Nikki M. Taylor's Driven toward Madness: The Fugitive Slave Margaret Garner and Tragedy on the Ohio is a rich and heart-wrenching telling of one of the most devastating cases in fugitive slave history. As one of the first books published in the New Approaches to Midwestern Studies series, Taylor's work draws from the personal papers, regional newspapers, and government records found within Ohio state archives. Driven toward Madness examines the life and legacy surrounding Margaret Garner and the seven members of the Garner family who dared to escape their bondage in Kentucky in the winter of 1856. Together, Robert, twenty-seven years old, and his pregnant wife, Margaret, twenty-two years old, along with their four ... Read More

  • Grant Invades Tennessee: The 1862 Battles for Forts Henry and Donelson by
           Timothy B. Smith (review)
    • Abstract: Today, one might forgive visitors to Tennessee and Kentucky's Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area if they are unable, on the mere basis of an eponymous trail network and a few historical markers, to recognize the full significance of the submerged fort at the bottom of Kentucky Lake. Timothy Smith's Grant Invades Tennessee reminds us that, when the Depression-era Tennessee Valley Authority officials opted to sink the remnants of Fort Henry under the waters of the Tennessee River, they had less excuse. Although the second and more famous of Grant's twin victories during the winter of 1861–62, the capture of Fort Donelson on the Cumberland River, has always figured much larger in collective memory (its ...

  • Integrated: The Lincoln Institute, Basketball, and a Vanished Tradition,
           by James W. Miller (review)
    • Abstract: When most people hear the name "Kentucky," they immediately think of one of three preeminent institutions: Kentucky Fried Chicken, the Kentucky Derby, or basketball. Any Kentucky citizen can easily recognize and explain the idiom "Bleed Blue" as describing devotion to University of Kentucky basketball. While historians and sports reporters have aptly covered white men's basketball history, James W. Miller explores one aspect of Kentucky's African American men's basketball history. Miller's seminal narrative of Kentucky's Lincoln Institute in Shelby County fills a void in African American, Kentucky, education, and sports history. As an author, former newspaper reporter, and athletics director, Kentucky native Miller ... Read More
