Revolutionary backlash : women and politics in the early American Republic by Rosemarie Zagarri( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Seneca Falls Convention is typically seen as the beginning of the first women's rights movement in the United States. Revolutionary Backlash argues otherwise. The debate over women's rights began not in the decades prior to 1848 but during the American Revolution itself. Integrating the approaches of women's historians and political historians, Rosemarie Zagarri explores changes in women's status that occurred from the time of the American Revolution until the election of Andrew Jackson." "Spanning the first fifty years of the nation's history, Revolutionary Backlash uncovers women's forgotten role in early American politics and explores alternative meanings for the rise of democracy in the early United States."--Jacket
David Humphreys' life of General Washington : with George Washington's "remarks" by David Humphreys( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a remarkable feat of historical detective work, Rosemarie Zagarri has assembled manuscripts from three separate archives to reconstruct and publish for the first time in its full form the only biography of George Washington authorized by the general himself. Written by his close friend and military aide David Humphreys, it offers a rare, intimate glimpse of Washington's life, from his birth in 1732 until his assumption of the presidency in 1789. Best known as a minor poet of the Revolutionary War era, Humphreys became Washington's aide-de-camp during the war. Afterward, in 1786, he came to Mount Vernon at Washington's invitation and lived there for nearly three years, drawing on private papers and the general's reminiscences to compose the story of Washington's life. Before he finished, however, it became clear that Washington's story was far from over. The ratification of the Constitution paved the way for Washington's reluctant reentry into public life. Although Humphreys abandoned his plans for a full-scale biography, Zagarri has discovered that he did publish anonymously a much shorter version of his work as part of Jedidiah Morse's American Geography. Humphreys never published the fuller biography, which contained important details about Washington's childhood, his life at Mount Vernon, and his agonizing struggle over whether to accept the presidency. (Humphreys claims, in fact, to have been the first person with whom Washington discussed the presidency.) Washington reviewed a portion of Humphreys' manuscript for accuracy and added a detailed account of his experiences in the French and Indian War. The general described his frustration with British authorities over the need to defend the frontier, his horror at the war's carnage, his affection for his troops, and his terror at having to stop a group of British soldiers from firing on their compatriots. Washington's "Remarks," included in this edition, reveal a personal side that he seldom exposed in his letters or other writings. Zagarri has collated the three manuscripts -- located at the Rosenbach Museum and Library in Philadelphia, the Yale University Library, and the Forbes Magazine Collection in New York -- into a smooth narrative and has provided notes containing alternative readings of the text as well as substantive historical commentary. Her introduction places the work in both historical and literary perspective. Written at nearly the same time as Parson Weems' more famous but much less accurate account, Humphreys' biography challenges a host of stereotypical images and myths about the first president. It is a volume that will fascinate specialists and nonspecialists alike. - Jacket flap

"That universal panic which now prevails" : an analytical narrative of the panic of 1791 by Scott Christopher Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis establishes a baseline narrative for the Panic of 1791, the first financial crisis experienced by the United States as a constituted union. During July, August, and September of 1791, newly formed American financial markets experienced a dramatic bubble in the prices of Bank of the United States (BUS) script and US securities. This bubble was not only the work of elite "moneymen," but "grocers, shipkeepers, sea captains, and even prentice boys" who were able to mobilize their meager wealth and invest in modern financial instruments for the first time. The subsequent crash, which I argue was caused by a group of elite speculators, saw asset depreciation of well over 50% in a matter of days, and an unprecedented monetary intervention by the Treasury Department led by Alexander Hamilton. Separating it from any previous account of the Panic, this thesis describes a second bubble and crash that shortly followed the first. By examining the economic, political, and social dynamics that comprised the Panic of 1791, as well as the Hamilton Treasury's policy response, this thesis sheds new light on the origins of US government financial crisis management as well as the delicate interplay between the new and untrusted American government and Hamilton's novel financial system. Data drawn from a wide variety of historical material, including newspaper coverage, correspondence, financial databases, and personal records demonstrates the modernity of the Panic of 1791. The credit networks, financial instruments, speculative tactics, and governmental policy tools would be widely recognizable to modern financiers. This thesis challenges the historical assumption that the Panic of 1791 was a minor historical event of limited consequence. Contrary to the conclusions of an extensive historiography, the Panic of 1791 was a dynamic economic, political, and societal phenomenon with a broad impact on both the founding era and the course of American financial and economic development. By formulating a limited but energetic response, Hamilton prevented the Panic from becoming a full-blown economic, and possibly political and constitutional, crisis
