Race & politics ; "bleeding Kansas" and the coming of the Civil War ' by James A Rawley( Book )

15 editions published between 1969 and 2005 in English and German and held by 1,268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study offers an analysis of the controversies that followed the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. The question of whether the still unsettled Kansas Territory should be slave or free divided the nation into hostile and irreconcilable camps that created conditions only civil war could resolve. The author argues that the fundamental issue was not slavery as such but rather race--whether the country, its egalitarian slogans notwithstanding, could tolerate the expansion of African Americans, slave or free.--From publisher description

The politics of Union : Northern politics during the Civil War by James A Rawley( Book )

13 editions published between 1974 and 1981 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abraham Lincoln's single goal of saving the Union required not simply subduing the South but contending as well with divisiveness in the North---with refractory state officials, draft resisters, peace advocates, secret organizations, with Northern Democrats (too often seen only as Copperheads or as traitors to the Union), and with powerful Republicans who often vocally disagreed with Lincoln's policies. In this account, Radical Republicans represent consensus with Lincoln more than conflict, sectional more than economic interests, and party over faction. Largely, dissent was heard and accommodated; and, if the federal legislation of the time did amount to a Second American Revolution, it emerged from the conflicts, within the North as well as against the South, of a nation at war. The outcome was a nation not only saved but strengthened and slavery ended

A Lincoln dialogue by James A Rawley( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The words of Abraham Lincoln have been immortalized in speeches and enshrined in policies and practices, and none of those words, spoken or written, has gone unnoticed or wanted for a response. It is this broader context--the wider conversation about Lincoln's words--that this book discusses. The final project of James A. Rawley, a preeminent historian of the Civil War era, A Lincoln Dialogue cross-examines Lincoln's major statements, papers, and initiatives in light of the comments and criticism of his supporters and detractors. Drawn from letters and newspapers, pamphlets and reports, these statements and responses constitute a unique documentary examination of Abraham Lincoln's presidency. Rawley's careful selection and his judicious interweaving of historical analysis and background invite us into the dialogue and allow us to hear the voices of American history in the making."--Jacket

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"I have placed you at the head of the Army of the Potomac. Of course I have done this upon what appear to me to be sufficient reasons. And yet I think it best for you to know that there are some things in regard to which, I am not quite satisfied with you." With this opening sentence in a two-page letter from Abraham Lincoln, Union general Joseph Hooker (1814-79) gained a prominent place in Civil War history. Hooker assumed command of an army demoralized by defeat and diminished by desertion. Acting swiftly, the general reorganized his army, routed corruption among quartermasters, improved food and sanitation, and boosted morale by granting furloughs and amnesties. His hour of fame and the test of his military skill came in the May 1863 battle of Chancellorsville. It was one of the Union Army's worst defeats; shortly thereafter Hooker's resignation was accepted. This biography covers Hooker's renewal as an important commander in the western theater during the Chattanooga and Atlanta campaigns, as well his life before and after his Civil War military service
