      Abstract: Big Tex. Photo by Carol M. Highsmith. Photographs in the Carol M. Highsmith Archive, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division.For 125 years, the editors and contributors to the Southwestern Historical Quarterly have preserved primary-source evidence of the past, provided an analysis of that past for the present, and envisioned the future study of Texas and southwestern history. As the essays in this issue from some of the best historians of the region make clear, the balance between preserving past documents, offering fresh interpretations, and arguing for new approaches has changed over time, but you still find notes and documents that highlight evidence, closely argued analysis and narration that ...

University of North Texas Libraries, the Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu.The Southwestern Historical Quarterly is the oldest continuously published historical quarterly in the United States. But it has changed significantly since its inception in July 1897. It does not even have the same title! It became more diverse in content as its clientele and contributors both increased in academic and demographic diversity. While the Quarterly retained a primary focus on Texas history, reflecting the interests of twelve editors and managing editors, it also became an important source for works on the ... Read More

University of North Texas Libraries, the Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu.My purpose in this essay is to assess the coverage of women's history in the Southwestern Historical Quarterly during its 125 years in print.1 If an excellent model might be F.

University of North Texas Libraries, the Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu.The Texas State Historical Association voted in 1912 to change the name of its journal to the Southwestern Historical Quarterly. "Though as much Texas matter will be published as was formerly," the explanation noted for its readers, "the change of name will enable the Association to enlarge the scope of The Quarterly by publishing material on other parts of the Southwest.1 This name change placed the journal solidly in the mainstream of a powerful intellectual force then beginning to sweep through academic circles ...

University of North Texas Libraries, the Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu.For over a century, the Southwestern Historical Quarterly (including the time between 1897 and 1912 when it was known as the Quarterly of the Texas State Historical Association) has been a venue for borderlands scholarship on Texas and the surrounding regions. While the number of articles on borderlands topics have waxed and waned over the years, the journal has consistently promoted scholarship on the Spanish and Mexican periods of the region's history.

University of North Texas Libraries, the Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu.The history of Mexican-descent people in Texas reaches back some three centuries; yet, not until the last quarter of the twentieth century did the scholarly community acknowledge Tejanos as being active agents in the Texas narrative.1 Slowly during the 1970s, a trickle of essays centering on Tejanos found their way into U.S. academic journals.2 None were present in the ...

University of North Texas Libraries, the Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu.Over the past 125 years, the kinds of questions asked about the Texas Revolution by contributors to the journal published by the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA) have changed—sometimes drastically, sometimes subtly.

University of North Texas Libraries, the Portal to Texas History, https://texashistory.unt.edu.The Southwestern Historical Quarterly (SHQ) began publishing articles that explored the history of civil rights activism in Texas beginning in the late 1970s.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Detailed and meticulously documented, Jennifer Bess's Where the Red-Winged Blackbirds Sing tells the story of one of the most remarkable sagas in the history of Native North America. The Akimel O'odham have farmed the floodplains of the Salt River and Gila River in central Arizona for thousands of years. Their ancestors, the Huhugam, constructed the largest irrigation system in pre-Columbian North America, cultivating about 100,000 acres along hundreds of miles of earthen canals. When Spaniards first encountered them in the late 1600s, the Huhugam had dispersed, leaving their platform-mound communities in response to flooding, internal strife, and perhaps even Old World epidemic diseases. But their descendants ... Read More

  • Diverting the Gila: The Pima Indians and the Florence Casa Grande Project,
           1916–1928 by David H. DeJong (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For generations, before White settlers arrived along the Gila River, Pima Indian growers successfully used the water to create a thriving and sustainable agricultural community. David H. DeJong's Diverting the Gila: The Pima Indians and the Florence Casa Grande Project, 1916–1928, tells the sad story of the Pimas' struggle to keep their irrigation community alive after the arrival of new White American settlers. Upstream diversions by immigrants to the Gila River valleys from the Civil War to 1890 depleted the river's flow to downstream Pima fields resulting in the collapse of the tribal community. The Pimas were experts in sustainably using the limited water resources of the Gila River to allow life to flourish in ... Read More

           (1600) transed. by Sonia Kania (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In late 1598, the colonizing expedition of Juan de Oñate to New Mexico arrived at its destination. The adelantado, or leader, was Juan himself. Among the various Spanish, mestizo, mulato, and Native peoples who made up the group were the nephews of Oñate, the brothers Vicente and Juan de Zaldívar. With the exception of planting the seeds for what would become New Mexico's vibrant Hispanic culture, perhaps the most defining event of that great adventure was the Battle of Acoma Pueblo in 1599.The battle was not wanted or planned. It was the result of a deadly altercation between Pueblo warriors and Spanish soldiers that resulted in the death of Spaniards, including Juan de Zaldívar. Oñate responded in kind, sending ...

           by James E. Crisp (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is not surprising that previous editions of Herman Ehrenberg's memoir were incomplete and heavily or even inadequately edited. In one case, as editor James Crisp points out, "the anti-Hispanic language of 'Mexico Before 1835' [the first chapter] was a bit too strong for the Texas of the Good Neighbor Policy of the 1930s, or for the schoolchildren for whom William Tardy had intended With Milam and Fannin: Adventures of a German Boy in Texas' Revolution when he published this little book in Dallas in 1935" (19). Sadly, Ehrenberg's racist, anti-Catholic views continue to hold sway with too many present-day Texans, who will find much to agree with in the young German's opinionated narrative, as opposed to Crisp's ...

           Family in the Guadalupe River Basin by Thomas O. McDonald (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Texas Rangers have always been a subject of interest to Texans, historians and laypeople alike. For some, the Rangers were the unvarnished heroes of the Texas frontier, representative of the Texas characteristics like courage, rugged individualism, and tenacity. To others, the Texas Rangers were always racist protectors of Anglo hegemony, killing and abusing Indians, Mexicans, African Americans, and anyone else who stood in the way of Anglo American progress. James Hughes Callahan has been a particularly controversial figure in Ranger history because of his 1855 raid into Mexico, which resulted in the burning of Piedras Negras. Since the 1970s, solid historians have linked the Callahan Expedition to an effort ... Read More

  • Texas Brigadier to the Fall of Atlanta: John Bell Hood by Stephen Davis
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Stephen Davis's Texas Brigadier to the Fall of Atlanta is a welcome addition to the growing scholarship on General John Bell Hood and the Texas Brigade during the Civil War. Serving as the first of two volumes of a comprehensive study on the beleaguered commander, this book sheds much-needed light on the general's military career and the maelstrom of controversy and recrimination that surrounded the Confederate Army of Tennessee.From the onset, Davis tackles his subject and addresses the elephant in the room, the notion that Hood undeservedly received promotion to full general and the command of an army he was ill-suited to lead. Historians have "concluded that Hood was a nineteenth-century embodiment of the 'Peter ... Read More

  • Millenarian Dreams and Racial Nightmares: The American Civil War as an
           Apocalyptic Conflict by John H. Matsui (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the past twenty years, religion has become more central to the study of the U.S. Civil War. John H. Matsui, author of The First Republican Army: The Army of Virginia and the Radicalization of the Civil War (University of Virginia Press, 2017) and, with Edward J. Blum, War is All Hell: The Nature of Evil and the Civil War (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2021), offers close analysis of the relationship between religious ideas and war in Millenarian Dreams and Racial Nightmares. "Protestants' wartime political ideology and racial views," Matsui argues, "were closely tied to their religious optimism or pessimism regarding human nature, perfectibility, and end-times (or eschatological) views" (2). The author ... Read More

  • The Record of Murders and Outrages: Racial Violence and the Fight over
           Truth at the Dawn of Reconstruction by William A. Blair (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this book, William A. Blair, former director of the Richards Civil War Era Center and emeritus professor of American History at Pennsylvania State University, examines the Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen, and Abandoned Lands' gathering of statistics on racial violence during the Reconstruction era. In a relatively short five chapters and an epilogue, he addresses three major questions concerning those statistics. First, he looks at the purpose behind their gathering and finds that bureau leadership, which had become aware of violence in the South in reports from local agents, began a more systematic collection of information on what was happening in an attempt to bring about a change in the policies that had been ...

  • I've Been Here All the While: Black Freedom on Native Land by Alaina E.
           Roberts (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Scholars have used the framework of settler colonialism to describe subjects and settings as varied as Native American history, the settlement of Australia, and Israeli occupation of the West Bank. In I've Been Here all the While: Black Freedom on Native Land, Alaina Roberts presents the histories of the Choctaw and Chickasaw Nations, the Black people they enslaved, and their descendants in Indian Territory (present-day Oklahoma) by arguing that each of these groups participated in the process of settler colonialism. Roberts argues that the willingness of these groups to engage in settler colonialism began shortly after removal in the 1830s and continues through what Roberts contends is an extended period of ...

  • Juneteenth: The Story Behind the Celebration by Edward T. Cotham Jr.
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the wake of George Floyd's murder in 2020 and the protests of it by Black Lives Matter and others, there has been greater public awareness of those voices and stories once dismissed or ignored. Whether that awareness is about statues or the teaching of a more inclusive curriculum in the classroom, the country has begun a discussion about the past. With almost perfect timing comes Edward T. Cotham's monograph Juneteenth: The Story Behind the Celebration. This book, surprisingly, is one of only two academic works on the subject, Annette Gordon-Reed's recent On Juneteenth being the other.Cotham's book comprises twenty-two chapters, with the last briefly noting how the celebration became a state holiday in Texas. It ... Read More

  • A Busy Week in Texas: Ulysses S. Grant's 1880 Visit to the Lone Star State
           by Edward T. Cotham Jr. (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: At the end of a world tour, former President U.S. Grant and his wife Julia were seasoned travelers, and a week in Texas was a piece of cake to them. To Texans it meant not only cake, but twenty-one-gun salutes, parades, and lengthy speeches. All this for a former Union general and Republican ex-president visiting what was once enemy territory' But in 1880 the Confederate states were bygone, and Grant might run again for president. Texas, with visions of railroads and a deep-water port, wanted to be on his good side.Edward T. Cotham's account of the "busy week in Texas" is indeed busy: full of parade lists, banquet menus, and accounts of endless toasts that make this book an entertaining read. Three ... Read More

  • The Episcopacy of Nicholas Gallagher, Bishop of Galveston, 1882–1918 by
           Sr. Madeleine Grace (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Nicholas Aloysius Gallagher is likely not a name known to most Americans, or indeed to most Texans. Yet this lesser-known Catholic bishop was responsible for guiding Catholic Texans through one of the worst natural disasters in U.S. history, the 1900 Galveston hurricane. Sister Madeleine Grace, CVI, shines light on this early Catholic leader. She offers historians of Catholicism and Texas alike a detailed chronicling of Gallagher's leadership during a tumultuous moment in Texas history, from the formal end of Reconstruction through World War I.Born to a devout Irish American family in 1846, Gallagher spent his formative years in Ohio. From an early age he expressed a vocation for the priesthood. At the age of ... Read More

  • The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre: A Photographic History by Karlos K. Hill
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In May and June 2021, Texas governor Greg Abbott and Oklahoma governor Kevin Stitt each signed a bill, part of a spate of similar legislation being passed around the country, attempting to control the ways racial issues are discussed in the classroom. Such bills were of particular concern due to their timing, centered around the one-hundredth anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre. The history of the massacre, in which White people took the lives of approximately three hundred African American men, women, and children, has undergone extraordinary levels of overt erasure and as a result has been largely removed from Americans' collective historical memory. In The 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre: A Photographic History ... Read More

      Abstract: The Works Progress Administration (WPA) played a key role in the New Deal's attempt to combat the nation's chronic unemployment problem during the Great Depression. While many elements of the agency's efforts are well known—its extensive construction projects that contributed to the improvement of the nation's landscape and infrastructure, and many non-construction initiatives to provide work for unemployed actors, musician, and visual artists—the WPA also created less publicized work to pay the unemployed to preserve state and local history, as well as to probe communities in order to capture snapshots of Great Depression life for posterity. It is these activities that serve as the focal point of Ronald Goodwin's ... Read More

           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Based on the author's dissertation at Texas Christian University, this book provides a comprehensive analysis of the administrative history of the 1936 Frontier Exposition held at Fort Worth while also considering that event within the context of myth and memory as part of the Texas Centennial. The narrative is divided into two parts. The first section surveys the planning undertaken by Fort Worth civic and political leaders during 1934 and 1935 as they hoped to create a heritage-based celebration highlighting the city's importance within the context of the cattle industry. The second section examines the activities of New York City showman Billy Rose, who took charge of the celebration in March 1936. He converted ... Read More

      Abstract: In his essay on the Houston architect John S. Chase, Stephen Fox begins by listing the many firsts in Chase's career, from his status as part of the first class of African American students at the University of Texas at Austin in 1950 and the first graduate of the university's architecture school in 1952 to his later becoming the first African American fellow of the American Institute of Architects from Texas. In his career of firsts, Chase paved the way for generations of Black architects who followed in his footsteps. His large and successful architectural office in Houston, first established in the early 1950s, employed Black architects when other firms would not and built churches, schools, and medical clinics ...

  • The Ranger Ideal Volume 3: Texas Rangers in the Hall of Fame, 1898–1987

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Texas Rangers in the Hall of Fame, 1898–1987 concludes Darren Ivey's trilogy of Texas Ranger Hall of Fame members. Beginning with William Wright, who entered the Rangers in 1899, and closing with Stanley Guffey, whose Ranger service came to a tragic end in 1987, this volume presents the last twelve inductees, whose tenures occurred during Texas's transition from its "old west" past.Rangers' attention to frontier defense was eventually replaced with labor union unrest, counterfeiting, border incursions, prohibition, and gangster violence. In response, Ranger responses became more sophisticated as the Colt dragoon revolver, lever-action Winchester, and horseback transportation evolved into crime laboratory ... Read More

      Abstract: A. Smith, disappoints. Organized in six chapters and around the presidencies of Theodore Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush, the book fails to fulfill its promise to be the "first indepth and comprehensive study of U.S. presidents' deployment of frontier myth." Nor does it satisfactorily demonstrate "how and why this quintessential American vision has worked to advance radically different political agendas" (7).The book relies on the idea that between the Johnson Administration and the Reagan years, political ownership of the frontier myth moved from the left to the right, from promoting a forward-looking, inclusive, and progressive agenda to becoming a tool "deployed" on behalf of a ...

  • Forever Prisoners: How the United States Made the World's Largest
           Immigration Detention System by Elliott Young (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Elliott Young's Forever Prisoners: How the United States Made the World's Largest Immigration Detention System is a welcome addition to the histories bridging migration and carceral studies. Detentions throughout the twentieth century, as Young brilliantly shows, came in forms beyond immigration processing centers. These detentions took place in mental health institutions, hospitals, charity houses, prisons, and internment camps. As a result, Young argues, non-citizen detentions throughout the twentieth century were as prevalent as they have been for the last forty years, a striking fact in the face of a contemporary deportation regime created by bipartisan efforts. Forever Prisoners considers these forms of ... Read More

      Abstract: The April 2022 issue of the Southwestern Historical Quarterly concludes our 125th volume. (From 1897 to 1912, the journal was known as the Quarterly of the Texas State Historical Association.) To mark the occasion, the editorial staff decided to solicit essays on how a variety of topics have been covered in the Quarterly, and we asked historian Richard McCaslin, author of At the Heart of Texas: One Hundred Years of the Texas State Historical Association, 1897–1997 (Texas State Historical Association, 2007) to write a general history of the publication. These essays detail how there is much to celebrate in the Quarterly’s history—as McCaslin notes, it “is the oldest continuously published historical quarterly in the ... Read More
