The most promising young man of the South : James Johnston Pettigrew and his men at Gettysburg by Clyde Norman Wilson( )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the Battle of Gettysburg, Pettigrew and his men personified the undaunting bravery of the Confederate cause. Clyde Wilson makes a case that "Pickett's Charge" should, according to the harsh realities of combat, be called "Pettigrew's Charge," and the reader is drawn inexorably into this climactic battle and the dashed hopes of the Confederacy. Although their effort failed, Pettigrew and his men took their places in the pantheon of American heroes

The essential Calhoun : selections from writings, speeches, and letters by John C Calhoun( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 2017 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John C. Calhoun was a major actor in the political history of nineteenth-century America. His dramatic career will always be of interest. However, Calhoun is equally important as a political thinker who continues to elicit widespread interest from the most diverse points of the ideological spectrum. The Essential Calhoun is designed to present a full-fledged selection of speeches and writings taken from the entire forty-year span of his public career and from many varieties of occasions, public and private. For the first time, it is possible to appreciate Calhoun fully and to seriously examine his thought within the compass of a single volume." "Calhoun is known to posterity as the premier defender of the Old South and slavery and as the theorist of the concurrent majority. His contemporaries knew him as much else, including a political economist and foreign policy authority. As the range of writings shows, he was a valuable and often prophetic commentator who remains as timely as the Budget Crisis of 1990 and the Gulf War." "Calhoun's thought testifies to a deep and abiding concern with moral and ethical issues that confront a government resting on the consent of the people. The fundamental question with which he wrestles in all his works is how to achieve and maintain a proper balance between power and liberty in a democratic society. By providing the most representative compendium of his thought, The Essential Calhoun invites the reader to engage in this exercise of applying the moral imagination realistically to the public business in America. Historians, American studies specialists, economists, and political scientists will find this volume indispensable."--Jacket

Forgotten conservatives in American history by Brion T McClanahan( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A series of biographical vignettes on forgotten American conservatives provides clear insight into what truly constitutes American conservatism. From M.E. Bradford, John C. Calhoun, and Grover Cleveland to Sam Ervin, William Faulkner, and James Jackson, the authors argue that American conservatism is based on eight core values: decentralization, sound money, light taxes, states? rights, low debt, family, community, and independence, both at home and abroad. To those looking for context among the various competing visions and directions of modern American conservatism, this book serves a guidepost."--Publisher's website
From union to empire : essays in the Jeffersonian tradition by Clyde Norman Wilson( Book )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jeffersonian Democrats, also known as Southern conservatives, were once a numerous and common American type. They are seldom heard from any more, but for over thirty years Clyde N. Wilson has been examining American history and current events from just such a viewpoint. Wilson, as historian and columnist Joseph Stromberg writes in the foreword, is "the kind of conservative who is a stalwart defender of federalism and republicanism, and the liberties associated with them. Such conservatives are few and far between these days ... What comes of this is the creative deployment of a Southern perspective on American history - one that yields interesting and important insights."--Jacket
