  • Reenvisioning Reconstruction: An Introduction
    • Authors: Hutner G.
      Pages: 403 - 406
      Abstract: In creating this special issue on Reconstruction, I want particularly to recognize the renewal of interest over the past ten years in this subject. A nucleus of scholars has been revisiting the period and committing a great deal of industry and intelligence toward uncovering its critical exigencies in ways previous generations of Americanists had missed. Major books exploring the contours of Reconstruction, by Jennifer Rae Greeson, Edlie Wong, Brook Thomas, Sharon Kennedy-Nolle, Carolyn Karcher, Gregory Laski, and Elizabeth Renker, among others, have now appeared, and more are soon to come. Reconstruction, it is safe to say, has fully arrived as a field of inquiry that Americanists can pursue as vigorously as they have other eras.

  • Three Theses on Reconstruction
    • Authors: Marrs C.
      Pages: 407 - 428
      Abstract: If we have learned anything from the recent waves of Americanist scholarship, it is that the borders that long organized literary-historical inquiry are far more unsettled than anyone knew. Although this revisionist scholarship has examined cultural processes large and small and texts that range from the highly canonical to the utterly noncanonical, so far it has had relatively little to say about one of the starkest borders in US literary history: Reconstruction. Always the most paradoxical of eras, Reconstruction demarcates the Civil War yet frequently gets swallowed up by the broader postbellum epoch that it purportedly inaugurates. Despite its status as one of the most significant and distinct eras in US political history, it has typically been omitted from or deemphasized within the narratives of nineteenth-century literary history. It is rarely a breaking point for survey courses, and there is a relative dearth of critical terms distinguishing its texts. There is no Reconstruction equivalent of the “modernist poem” or “antebellum novel”—no “Reconstruction lyric” or “Reconstruction romance” (not least because its legibility as a historical period has often been tethered to the emergence of realism). Nor has Reconstruction readily lent itself to teaching, whether due to the unusual length of its novels or its relative resistance to New Critical pedagogy.

    • Authors: Gardner E.
      Pages: 429 - 449
      Abstract: The first story of African American literature in Reconstruction that many students and scholars still hear is a story of absence. That story is wrong in both broad conception and specific details, but it is worth quickly retelling for context.

  • The Fragments of Black Reconstruction
    • Authors: Fagan B.
      Pages: 450 - 465
      Abstract: On 1 April 1865, the black New Yorker Thomas Hamilton announced the launch of a new journal. Hamilton had published and edited the Anglo-African, a weekly newspaper, since 1859, but now felt the need for a more frequent publication.11 “On and after Tuesday, May 16th,” he declared, “A TRI-WEEKLY EDITION of this paper will be issued.” As an enticement to readers, Hamilton announced that a new piece of fiction, from a new author, would be serialized exclusively in this new paper. “In the first number of the Tri-Weekly will be commenced a story of thrilling interest,” he wrote, “written by a new and able contributor, entitled HEARTS AND HOMES: The recollections of an Octogenarian; A Story of Slavery in the British West Indies” (“Another”).22 Written by an anonymous author using the pseudonym Landseer, Hearts and Homes (1865) was to be the cornerstone of the Tri-Weekly.33 But less than two months after this announcement, the 42-year-old publisher died. His brother Robert returned to New York City from his travels to take over the newspaper and immediately canceled the publication of the new journal. He did, however, decide to continue publishing Hearts and Homes in the Anglo-African’s regular weekly edition. Rather than starting the serialization of Hearts and Homes from the novel’s opening, Hamilton began with its fourth chapter, explaining that “[t]he three preceding chapters, published in the three issues of the Tri-Weekly; can be obtained at this office” (“A Word”). Beginning on 24 June, eight installments of one chapter each appeared in the Anglo-African. But publication stopped abruptly at its eleventh chapter, leaving readers (then and now) with a fragment of the presumably larger novel.

  • Reconstruction Georgic and Vernacular Voice Poetry
    • Authors: Sweet T.

      Abstract: A literary account of Reconstruction’s landscape aesthetic might look something like this: an improving Northern georgic intervening in a ruined Southern pastoral—that is, a reorganization of labor under the aegis of nation-building that would reshape the plantation landscape and all it stood for. Consider, for example, the efforts of Comfort Servosse in Albion Tourgée’s novel A Fool’s Errand (1879) or the “energetic Maine m[a]n” (41) who buys the De Rossett plantation in Constance Fenimore Woolson’s short story “Rodman the Keeper” (Atlantic Monthly 1877). Such stories explored the application of the program laid out in projecting economic surveys such as Edward King’s The Great South (Scribner’s Monthly 1873–74; book 1875) against the resurgent pastoral nostalgia that would culminate in the plantation fictions of Thomas Nelson Page.11 By the turn of the century, this landscape model would come under scrutiny. Paul Laurence Dunbar, for example, reflected on the racial constraints of Southern rural labor in Lyrics of Lowly Life (1896) (Ronda). Charles Chesnutt traced ironic continuities between postbellum georgic and antebellum slaveholding attitudes in his conjure stories (The Conjure Woman, 1899).22

  • Numbered, Numbered: Commemorating the Civil War Dead in Woolson’s
           “Rodman the Keeper”
    • Authors: Diffley K.
      Pages: 488 - 507
      Abstract: At the height of Radical Reconstruction and US Constitutional amendment, when the fates of ex-states and ex-slaves were most insistently joined, Constance Fenimore Woolson set a story of remembrance, a story that turns a sacrificial past into a revolutionary future. First published by the Atlantic Monthly in March 1877, “Rodman the Keeper” has recently been selected by the Norton Anthology of American Literature to demonstrate for growing numbers of students how the opportunities of a tempestuous period were once imaginatively conceived. Because this story will therefore embody Reconstruction’s artistry for years to come, it is important to appreciate its historical nuance as well as its author’s surreptitious choices. Woolson set aside the open violence in Southern states, their occupation by federal troops, and the spread of the Ku Klux Klan as she focused on early 1870, the year when suffrage for African American men was constitutionally ratified. Her story thereby became a selective and widely celebrated gauge of Southern political currents after the war, as white Southerners contemplated bankruptcy and new African American citizens began exercising their rights.

  • What Is “Reconstruction Poetry”'
    • Authors: Renker E.
      Pages: 508 - 530
      Abstract: Eric Foner observed in 1997 that no period in US history “has undergone a more complete reevaluation since 1960 than Reconstruction” (“Slavery” 96). And while one of the most significant shifts in nineteenth-century US literary historiography since the 1990s has been the scholarly reassessment of Civil War poetry as an important archive rather than a blur of bad verse, the category that I here call “Reconstruction poetry” has not yet entered the field-Imaginary.11 This essay argues that now is the time to excavate this category and to institutionalize it as such in our disciplinary frameworks. An extensive and heterogeneous archive, Reconstruction poetry provides a mostly unknown record of the competing social meanings of Reconstruction as they unfolded. Broad and diverse populations wrote, read, circulated, and shared poems in both written and oral forms and in a profusion of media including newspapers, magazines, pamphlets, books, songs, personal correspondence, and public oratory. These routine habits of poetic expression and consumption served as a common—indeed, a daily—way to respond, directly or indirectly, to evolving social conditions and to participate in (often contentious) public discourse about them. Parsing the archive of Reconstruction poetry with care will both add a vital chapter to the recent surge in scholarship about the social histories of poetry and contribute a significant array of largely unknown primary sources to our nation’s changing historiography of Reconstruction.[W]hile one of the most significant shifts in nineteenth-century US literary historiography since the 1990s has been the scholarly reassessment of Civil War poetry … the category that I here call “Reconstruction poetry” has not yet entered the field-Imaginary.

  • “A Yet More Terrible and More Deeply Complicated Problem”: Walt
           Whitman, Race, Reconstruction, and American Democracy
    • Authors: Folsom E.
      Pages: 531 - 558
      Abstract: In March 1888, eleven years after the end of Reconstruction, Walt Whitman’s disciples Horace Traubel and Richard Maurice Bucke left Camden, New Jersey, where Whitman then lived, and traveled as the poet’s emissaries to visit his old friend and supporter William Douglas O’Connor, who was ailing at his home in Washington, DC. O’Connor and Whitman had been close friends in the early years of Reconstruction in Washington, when Whitman would regularly go to the home of O’Connor and his wife Nellie to engage in lively and intense conversation about the issues of the day. The conversations grew much too heated, however, in the early 1870s after the passage of the Fifteenth Amendment, which gave freed male slaves the right to vote. Whitman worried about ignorant freedmen having their votes bought and voting in a bloc, and he insisted they needed to be educated before gaining the franchise; O’Connor could not believe he was hearing this from the radical democratic author of Leaves of Grass (1855–1891), and when Whitman stormed out of O’Connor’s home one night, it would be the last they would communicate with each other for nearly a decade. Nellie O’Connor (née Ellen Calder) later recalled that when the Fifteenth Amendment “was up for discussion in 1871, it proved a topic that provoked the most vehement battle,” with “Walt taking the ground that the negroes were wholly unfit for the ballot, and Mr. O’Connor and others believing that the measure was the only one to adopt” (Calder 834). Late in his life, Whitman characterized African Americans as “a superstitious, ignorant, thievish race,” yet “full of good nature, good heart,” and he remembered that O’Connor simply “would not have it this way—found excuses, palliatives, illuminations—had his defense” (Traubel 9: 48). What Whitman and O’Connor did agree on, however, or so Whitman claimed, was “that the horror of slavery was not in what it did for the nigger but in what it produced of the whites”: “For we quite clearly saw that the white South, if the thing continued, would go to the devil—could not save themselves. What slaveholding people can'” (Traubel 8: 439). Whitman often contemplated in his final years whether he or O’Connor had been more perceptive in their differing judgments about African Americans:

  • Reconstruction and World War I: The Birth of What Sort of Nation(s)'
    • Authors: Thomas B.
      Pages: 559 - 583
      Abstract: In domestic affairs, influential studies like David Blight’s Race and Reunion (2001) and Michael Rogin’s analysis of D. W. Griffith’s The Birth of a Nation (1915) show how, in the first half of the twentieth century, distorted memory of the “nightmare” of Reconstruction helped legitimate a segregated nation.11 Little attention, however, has been paid to how memory of Reconstruction influenced foreign affairs.22 That influence is much less predictable and sometimes surprising. For instance, General Lucius Clay, in charge of the “Reconstruction and Occupation” of Germany after World War II, made “damned sure that there weren’t any carpetbaggers in the military government” (qtd. in Smith 237). Influenced by accounts of “carpetbagger misrule,” this son of a segregationist, but economically progressive, Georgia senator kept his word with positive results.

  • Reconstruction, Public Memory, and the Making of Clemson University on
           John C. Calhoun’s Fort Hill Plantation
    • Authors: Thomas R.
      Pages: 584 - 607
      Abstract: Clemson University has functioned partly as a site for memorials to Confederates since its establishment on John C. Calhoun’s Fort Hill plantation in upstate South Carolina as a public land-grant institution in 1889 on the eve of the Nadir, the lowest point in race relations in the US. For many years, the university has presented its founder Thomas Green Clemson, Calhoun’s son-in-law, as a Renaissance man, agricultural scientist, and visionary philanthropist, while largely ignoring his roles as slaveholder and Confederate Army officer. The university has also been reluctant to acknowledge publicly its earliest trustees’ and professors’ identities as Confederate veterans, its founder’s participation in the sharecropping system that routinely exploited former slaves during Reconstruction, and its first trustees’ leasing of a predominantly African American convict labor crew to build a college that would help white South Carolinians recover from the decimation during the Civil War. And the university has minimized the history of white students’ celebration of Confederate heritage and the institution’s alliances with groups like the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC), who advocated the revisionist Lost Cause movement from its founding until the early 1970s when African American students and others demanded an end to such practices. As its identity shifted from an upcountry college for the scientific study of agriculture to a top-tier public university, Clemson distanced itself from the legacies of the Confederacy and Reconstruction by utilizing historical commemorations like statues and building names that simply venerate its founders as honorable men, thereby undermining the institution’s effectiveness as a site examining and producing knowledge, information, and ideas, particularly race relations.

  • Reconstruction and the Cruel Optimism of Citizenship
    • Authors: Bentley N.
      Pages: 608 - 615
      Abstract: If something unites the varied efforts among scholars to rethink the literature of Reconstruction, it may be the paradoxical claim that this cultural period defies periodization. This claim goes beyond the truism that there are no natural or given boundaries in human history. Rather, scholars suggest that the “boundarylessness” of Reconstruction is acute and historically distinct (Marrs 419). Examined closely, Reconstruction-era dichotomies turn into continuities. Postbellum nation-building perpetuates antebellum white rule. Peacetime reconciliation is predicated on a warlike reign of terror. Postwar nationalism cannot be cleanly separated from ongoing transnational movements, from international diplomacy to the longue-durée struggle for black emancipation. Yet in her recent cultural history Civic Longing: The Speculative Origins of U.S. Citizenship (2018), Carrie Hyde argues that the era of Reconstruction does in fact contain a definitive periodizing event. The 1868 ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment provided the first constitutional definition of citizenship, after some 80 years in which the concept was “juridically unregulated” and “politically inconsistent” (6). Hyde argues that the aesthetic or “speculative” discourses that were hitherto the primary cultural traditions of citizenship in the US, from fiction and Christian theology to natural law philosophy, had to cede pride of place to the law, armed as it now was with the official power of the citizenship clause in the Constitution.

  • Deconstructing Reconstruction
    • Authors: Castronovo R.
      Pages: 616 - 626
      Abstract: When it comes to thinking about state power, racial difference, and traumatic memory in the US, deconstruction has proved more fashionable than Reconstruction. As opposed to a critical orientation that is popularly associated with European intellectual cool, Reconstruction seems a stuffy domain that yields little beyond items of antiquarian interest. As such, the impact of post–Civil War writing upon US literary studies has been often seen as negligible. Deconstruction as a tool, not Reconstruction as a period, has arguably been more significant in shaping how Americanist critics read.

  • Reconstruction Today: A Commentary
    • Authors: Claybaugh A.
      Pages: 627 - 632
      Abstract: William Dunning has a great deal to answer for. He trained generations of historians to view Reconstruction as misguided: vengeful in its policies toward the Southern states and foolhardy in its attempts to treat black men and women as equal to white. In doing so, he licensed even more negative conceptions of the period in popular culture and in the popular mind: the idea of Reconstruction as a time when white men were prohibited from voting while black men were encouraged to vote twice; when African American legislators cracked peanuts and sipped whiskey on the statehouse floor as they passed laws legalizing interracial marriage; when carpetbaggers seduced ignorant freedmen to join the Republican Party with promises of 40 acres and a mule.

  • Reconstruction and Forgettery
    • Authors: Gillman S.
      Pages: 633 - 641
      Abstract: The Reconstruction sesquicentennial has been quietly observed rather than celebrated, in keeping with its ambivalent presence in US literature and history. Historians have been debating virtually everything about Reconstruction since federal troops were no longer called upon to support state governments in 1877, including its timeline and outcome. At the chronological and ideological center of that debate, W. E. B. Du Bois’s monumental Black Reconstruction in America (1935) offers “splendid failure” as the best judgment, if not epitaph, still standing, still open ended (708). Literary critics have been more reticent, standing back from a full-scale critical engagement with the literary historiography and criticism of Reconstruction. In fact, what inspires this special issue is the uneasy question of a “Reconstruction literature”: Does such an identifiable set of texts in context exist at all, and if so, what are its parameters, and why has it gone unrecognized for so long' The nine essays suggest different candidates for what might count as the literature of Reconstruction: from political poetry published in the late 1860s New York Herald to a newly discovered novel set under British slavery in Barbados and serialized in the Anglo-African during the summer of 1865, to Constance Fenimore Woolson’s short story “Rodman the Keeper”—newly anthologized in the latest Norton—set in the ultralocal western North Carolina Piedmont at the end of the war decade, and first published in the March 1877 Atlantic Monthly. Crossing genre, space, and, to a lesser extent, time, the shared project of this special Reconstruction issue has both recovery and revisionist aspirations to expand the archive and unsettle the boundaries of Reconstruction writing.Crossing genre, space, and, to a lesser extent, time, the shared project of this special Reconstruction issue has both recovery and revisionist aspirations to expand the archive and unsettle the boundaries of Reconstruction writing.
