Benjamin Franklin, Jonathan Edwards, and the representation of American culture( )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No colonial figures so completely anticipated the shape of American culture - at once material and spiritual, piously secular and pragmatically sacred - as did Jonathan Edwards and Benjamin Franklin. Commonly labeled "Puritan" and "Yankee" respectively, Edwards and Franklin evoke seemingly opposite ideals. Puritan values, embraced by Edwards and sustained in American "evangelicalism," focus on God, communal faith, and self-denial. Yankee attributes, espoused by Franklin and sustained in American liberal republicanism, coalesce around the trinity of hard work, independent virtue, and utilitarian self-happiness. For two and a half centuries these alternative emphases and orientations have coexisted in uneasy tension both individually and in American society at large. In contrast to traditional comparative studies, which portray Edwards and Franklin as mutually exclusive ideal types, this interdisciplinary collection of essays allows polemical contrasts to disappear and Edwards and Franklin emerge as contrapuntal themes in a larger unity. From these essays, written by distinguished historians and literary critics such as Ruth Bloch, Edwin S. Gaustad, Daniel Walker Howe, J.A. Leo Lemay, and David Levin, emerges a portrait of two men who shared a common concern with mind, character, and virtue that shaped a legacy that would define much of American character for generations to come

in English and held by 1,312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Papers of Thomas Jefferson is a projected 60-volume series containing not only the 18,000 letters written by Jefferson but also, in full or in summary, the more than 25,000 letters written to him. Including documents of historical significance as well as private notes not closely examined until their publication in the Papers, this series is an unmatched source of scholarship on the nation's third president"--Publisher's description
Women in the American Revolution : gender, politics, and the domestic world by Annual conference on the American Revolution( )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 1,153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Building on a quarter-century of scholarship following the publication of the original "Women in the Age of the American Revolution", the ... essays in this volume convey an updated account the Revolution's meaning to and for women. The contributors examine how women dealt with years of armed conflict and carried on their daily lives. They explore factors such as age, race, educational background, marital status, social class, and region that had a profound impact on women. For patriot women the Revolution created opportunities--to market goods, find a new social status within the community, or gain power in the family. Those who remained loyal to the crown saw their lives diminished--their property confiscated, their businesses fail, or their sense of security shattered. Some essays focus on individuals (Sarah Bache, Phillis Wheatley). Others assess the impact of war on social or commercial interactions between men and women. In occupied Boston, patriot women fell in love with and married British soldiers; in Philadelphia women mobilized support for non-importation; and in several major cities wives took over the family business while their husbands fought. Together, these essays provide an up-to-date overview of women in the Revolutionary era."--Provided by publisher

This volume opens on 4 March 1803, the first day of Jefferson's third year as president. Still shaken by the closing of the right of deposit at New Orleans, he confronts the potential political consequences of a cession of Louisiana to France that might result in a denial of American access to the Mississippi. But he resists pressures to seize New Orleans by force, urging patience instead. The cabinet determines in April that "all possible procrastinations" should be used in dealing with France, but that discussions with Great Britain move forward as well. In Paris, a treaty for the cession of the Louisiana Territory to the United States is signed, and in May the right of deposit is restored. On 3 July, word reaches Jefferson in Washington of the agreement that France has sold the entire Territory for
