  • A Note from the Editor
    • Abstract: The September 2019 issue is my last as editor of the Journal of the Civil War Era. I was fortunate to have been part of the editorial team at JCWE since the inaugural issue in 2011, and I am proud of the work we have done to expand the reach and enrich the scholarship in the field. In that time, I have been fortunate to work with associate editors, Anthony Kaye, Aaron Sheehan-Dean, Kate Masur, and Greg Downs, and our current team, which includes Kristen Epps, Luke Harlow, Rachel Shelden, and Stacey Smith. I am pleased and grateful to be leaving the journal in such capable hands. In the past few years, we have worked to bring JCWE into the digital age, designing a new website and adding many new access points to ... Read More

  • Editor’s Note
    • Abstract: This issue includes essays that offer new perspectives on Ulysses S. Grant and the Compromise of 1850. Two others focus on culture: one takes a fresh look at northern loyalty and patriotism, and the other considers northerners’ darker emotions. Together, these pieces attest to the vibrancy and diversity of Civil War era studies.George Rable’s Robert Fortenbaugh Memorial Lecture, “Fighting for Reunion: Dilemmas of Hatred and Vengeance,” starts out this issue. In a sequel to his Damn Yankees! which examined the vitriolic rhetoric Confederates used to describe northerners, Rable measures the depth and temperature of northern hatred of the Confederacy—by comparison, it was never very deep and at most tepid. According ... Read More

  • Fighting for Reunion: Dilemmas of Hatred and Vengeance
    • Abstract: A little over a month before the Civil War began, Abraham Lincoln had movingly appealed to his “dissatisfied fellow countrymen” to step back from the abyss: “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies.” Ironically, Lincoln’s hope that the “mystic chords of memory . . . will yet swell the chorus of the Union” soon came true but only in the “loyal” states and only after war had begun.1 And despite the rage militaire that swept across the North after the firing on Fort Sumter, the whole question of enemies proved troublesome and complicated. If, as the president declared, this was a war for the Union, that objective would dictate not only how the war would be conducted but also how people should view and ... Read More

  • “You Have No Flag Out Yet'”: Commercial Connections and Patriotic
           Emotion in the Civil War North
    • Abstract: On April 19, 1861, the soldiers of the 7th Regiment of New York marched off to war.1 Their mobilization, triggered by the newly-formed Confederacy’s attack on Fort Sumter, galvanized the citizens of Gotham into an unprecedented display of patriotic fervor and Union sentiment. “We knew now, if we had not before divined it,” wrote a member of that regiment, “that our great city was with us as one man, utterly united in the great cause we were marching to sustain.”2 But it was not simply the presence of the enormous crowd, its ringing cheers, or the sky awash with the Stars and Stripes that convinced these young men that their city supported this national cause. Instead, it was the bounty presented in the name of ... Read More

  • “I Never Was an Abolitionist”: Ulysses S. Grant and Slavery,
           1854–1863
    • Abstract: Ulysses S. Grant’s reputation among historians and Civil War enthusiasts has dramatically changed since the 1970s. Today, in an era in which divisive political debates over race, immigration, economics, and the meaning of American citizenship are prevalent, Grant emerges within popular culture as a heroic figure whose example offers insights for once again saving America’s seemingly imperiled union. The high point of America’s renewed fascination with Grant is perhaps bestselling author Ron Chernow’s popular 2017 book Grant. Former president Bill Clinton wrote a glowing review of Chernow’s work, and another former president, Barack Obama, has mentioned that he was reading the book. Perhaps most impressively, two ...

  • The Compromise of 1850 and the Search for a Usable Past
    • Abstract: A century after Daniel Webster defied constituent pressure and endorsed the Compromise of 1850, another Massachusetts senator saluted his intrepid statesmanship. Whether or not John F. Kennedy actually wrote Profiles in Courage, the Pulitzer Prize–winning book lionized Webster’s fight to save the Union.1 Three decades later, Arizona senator Barry Goldwater drew strikingly similar inspiration from Henry Clay’s career, lauding the Kentuckian’s eloquent efforts to “fashion a compromise out of the chaos threatening America in 1850.”2 Although separated by a yawning ideological divide, Kennedy and Goldwater agreed that twentieth-century Americans could learn from the architects of antebellum compromise.Recent ...

  • Skepticism and American Faith: From the Revolution to the Civil War by
           Christopher Grasso (review)
    • Abstract: On the cover of Christopher Grasso’s new book about American Protestantism, the stately torso of George Washington hovers in the clouds with outstretched arms while Abraham Lincoln ascends toward him, getting crowned by angels as the two figures approach union. The apotheosis painting is an ideal image to suggest what Grasso has accomplished in this impressive work, which spans the period from the Revolution to the Civil War and explores the vast and misty role of Christianity in the making of the nation. Both the image and the book float above the complicated landscape where relationships are messy and life is unfair; both suggest the loftiest of feelings and ideas.The wars themselves, and their causes, are ...

  • Unrequited Toil: A History of United States Slavery by Calvin Schermerhorn
           (review)
    • Abstract: In Unrequited Toil, Calvin Schermerhorn emphasizes slavery’s central role in United States history before the twentieth century. Scores of familiar and less familiar vignettes drive its unflinching account of human, lived, and bonded experiences. By rooting a narrative history in biographies, Schermerhorn reminds readers that slavery took many different forms and influenced people’s lives in many different ways. As he concludes, “Slavery was never one thing, and enslaved people were never homogenous. There was no stagnation or sleepy plantation” (3).Schermerhorn creates a sweeping narrative of bonded people in the United States. In twelve highly readable chapters, Unrequited Toil explores topics as diverse as Nat ... Read More

  • Contesting Slave Masculinity in the American South by David Stefan
           Doddington (review)
    • Abstract: Gendered studies of slavery in the antebellum American South have been prolific in recent years. It all started with the publication of Deborah Gray White’s Ar’n’t I a Woman': Female Slaves in the Plantation South (1985), which placed the life cycle, labor, and family of enslaved women at the center of historical examination. White’s work triggered a wave of research into the lives of enslaved women, examining their gendered world, and demonstrating the ways they attempted to resist their enslavement and restore their femininity. Stephanie Camp’s Closer to Freedom: Enslaved Women and Everyday Resistance in the Plantation South (2004) is a notable example. More recently, historians have been building on the ... Read More

           (review)
    • Abstract: Kimberly M. Welch ends Black Litigants in the Antebellum American South with the story of how it began, with digging through rotting documents stored loosely in boxes or garbage bags and dusted with the droppings of various pests. The book is based on Welch’s study of over one thousand civil lawsuits filed by black litigants between 1800 and 1860 in the Natchez district, defined here as Adams and Concordia Counties in Mississippi and Iberville and Point Coupee Parishes in Louisiana. To find those lawsuits, she traveled not only to established archives, but also to courthouses and storage sheds where she found crumbling nineteenth-century legal records stashed and still folded in three, largely forgotten even by ...

  • Birthright Citizens: A History of Race and Rights in Antebellum America by
           Martha S. Jones (review)
    • Abstract: In the summer of 1827, William Watkins, a black minister, educator, and activist in Baltimore, paid a visit to John H. B. Latrobe, a well-connected local lawyer and philanthropist. Watkins had helped found the city’s Legal Rights Association, an organization aimed at protecting the rights of free blacks, and the mayor of Baltimore had imposed an 11 p.m. curfew on all people of color in the city. Watkins asked Latrobe to give him a legal opinion on whether such an ordinance was constitutional. We do not know what position Latrobe took, but the fact that Watkins and the Legal Rights Association sought an opinion on this matter speaks volumes.In this pathbreaking study, Martha S. Jones has uncovered how black ... Read More

  • Uncivil Warriors: The Lawyers’ Civil War by Peter Charles Hoffer
           (review)
    • Abstract: Peter Charles Hoffer is a prolific and highly accomplished legal historian. Much of his work has focused on colonial America and the early republic, but he has authored or coauthored books on a wide array of topics, including the landmark Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade (1973). In Uncivil Warriors he delves into the ways that lawyers shaped the progress and outcome of the Civil War. This is a topic that merits attention, as lawyers made up an important class in nineteenth-century America. Indeed, some of the most famous names of the era were lawyers—all the way up to the Union’s commander in chief, Abraham Lincoln.Many biographies have been written about individual lawyers, and studies of landmark cases during the ...

  • Penitentiaries, Punishment, and Military Prisons: Familiar Responses to an
           Extraordinary Crisis during the American Civil War by Angela M. Zombek
           (review)
    • Abstract: The imprisonment of more than 400,000 men and hundreds of women from both the Union and Confederacy has long inspired Civil War historians. These scholars have produced studies of individual prisons, wartime prison policy, collective memory, war trauma, and edited collections of prisoners’ writings. No one, however, has contextualized wartime prisons within the broader history of imprisonment in the United States. In her new book, Angela M. Zomek moves Civil War prison scholarship forward by situating the Civil War within this broader chronology. In so doing, she raises important questions about the war’s lasting impact on crime and punishment in the United States, even if Penitentiaries, Punishment, and Military ... Read More

  • Ambivalent Nation: How Britain Imagined the American Civil War by Hugh
           Dubrulle (review)
    • Abstract: The study of British responses to the American Civil War is a well-ploughed, but far from exhausted, field. Hugh Dubrulle seeks to move in a new direction and provides a substantial contribution in Ambivalent Nation. He builds on the work of numerous others in a lengthy historiography that, in spite of its voluminous nature, remains divided on many issues. Dubrulle separates the existing scholarship into two camps. The “traditional” interpretation captures the emotional, passionate British response. Richard J. Blackett is credited with providing the most impressive and nuanced examination of support for each side in Great Britain during the war, although Dubrulle notes that Blackett’s Divided Hearts: Britain and ...

  • Civil War and Agrarian Unrest: The Confederate South and Southern Italy by
           Enrico Dal Lago (review)
    • Abstract: Enrico Dal Lago has made a career of comparative history, a methodology with few true adherents owing to the difficulties of language mastery, a growing shortage of resources for research and travel, and often conflicting field-based identities for graduate students looking to market themselves. Nevertheless, Dal Lago’s body of work is a testament to the value of such an approach. His latest book carries the timeline of his Agrarian Elites: American Slaveholders and Southern Italian Landowners, 1815–1861 (2005) forward into the civil wars brought on by the two groups of elites examined in that work. By engaging in a sustained comparative study of the Confederate South and southern Italy during the U.S. Civil War ... Read More

  • Two Charlestonians at War: The Civil War Odysseys of a Lowcountry
           Aristocrat and a Black Abolitionist by Barbara L. Bellows (review)
    • Abstract: Barbara L. Bellows has written an innovative dual biography that tells the story of two native Charlestonians, a free black abolitionist and a white planter aristocrat, who fought on opposite sides during the Civil War. Sergeant Joseph Humphries Barquet fought with the Fifty-Fourth Massachusetts Infantry, and Captain Thomas Pinckney served in the Fourth South Carolina Calvary. Barquet had left Charleston in 1848 and did not meet Pinckney until Barquet was stationed as a guard on Morris Island in 1864, when Pinckney was imprisoned on the island. The book is exceptionally well written, and Bellows clearly has a broad audience in mind.Bellows tells their stories in alternating chapters, beginning with Joseph Barquet. ... Read More

  • Practical Liberators: Union Officers in the Western Theater during the
           Civil War by Kristopher A. Teters (review)
    • Abstract: With Practical Liberators, Kristopher A. Teters has provided a much-needed and bracing look at how Union officers approached emancipation in the West during the Civil War. Drawing on diaries, letters, and official documents, Teters charts how soldiers came to embrace emancipation. As the title of his work suggests, he finds that Union soldiers supported emancipation as a war measure and that their wartime experience rarely shifted their deeply held racist views of African American people.Teters selects the area west of the Appalachians for his analysis because “the Lower South was the area where the Union army would free the most slaves and smash the heart of the South’s slave-based economy” (6). The broad ... Read More

           Crossing of the James to the Crater by A. Wilson Greene (review)
    • Abstract: A. Wilson Greene’s greatest potential contribution to the field is as profound as it is straightforward; a comprehensive and well-researched campaign study of the military operations that culminated in the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia simply does not exist at the moment. In this first of three projected volumes, Greene ably covers the Petersburg campaign from the crossing of the James to the Battle of the Crater. For scholars interested in a wide variety of topics, there is much useful information in Greene’s volume. For those interested in race and emancipation, Greene ably covers the effect that racism had on military operations, especially in the charnel pit of the Crater, where Confederate troops ...

  • Women and the American Civil War: North-South Counterpoints ed. by Judith
           Giesberg, Randall M. Miller (review)
    • Abstract: Scarlett O’Hara opens the first essay of this new collection with a “Fiddle-dee-dee! War, war, war; this war talk is spoiling all the fun at every party this spring. I get so bored I could scream” (3). Boredom will be the last thing on anyone’s mind after they finish this strong new collection of essays on women and the American Civil War, edited by historians Judith Giesberg and Randall Miller. This sixteen-essay volume pairs essays on the North and the South to establish “a running comparative dynamic throughout the book,” attempting to circumvent the field’s regional segregation, in which “historians writing about Southern women rarely comment on or interact with those working on the North, and vice versa” ...

  • The Loyal Republic: Traitors, Slaves, and the Remaking of Citizenship in
           Civil War America by Erik Mathisen (review)
    • Abstract: Citizenship in the era of the U.S. Civil War is not an easy thing to write about. Every reader comes to the subject with a preconception of what citizenship meant—often shaped by their understanding of what it now means. Yet those preconceptions tend to be shaky, not least because Civil War–era Americans themselves had no clear idea of what citizenship actually was. As Erik Mathisen contends in The Loyal Republic, “By 1860 the United States really was a government without citizens”; although Americans certainly tried to define citizenship, there were “more failures than successes” (14). Moving from the age of nullification to the Reconstruction period, Mathisen explores an array of murky, shifting, and competing ... Read More

  • The Thin Light of Freedom: The Civil War and Emancipation in the Heart of
           America by Edward L. Ayers (review)
    • Abstract: The Thin Light of Freedom derives from community study. Edward L. Ayers explores two communities: one in southern Pennsylvania, Franklin County and its county seat of Chambersburg (twenty-five miles from Gettysburg in Adams County), and the other, only two hundred miles away in Virginia, Augusta County, with the county seat in Staunton. Systematic historical exploration of southern communities dates back to the work of W. E. B. DuBois, Howard W. Odum, Arthur F. Raper, and Charles S. Johnson in the early 1900s.1 The 1970s witnessed a renewed interest in the analysis of communities, although most were sociological rather than historical, and shortly thereafter Lawrence Stone warned of a “collapse into trivia,” and ...
