America in 1857 : a nation on the brink by Kenneth M Stampp( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was a year packed with unsettling events. The Panic of 1857 closed every bank in New York City, ruined thousands of businesses, and caused widespread unemployment among industrial workers. The Mormons in Utah Territory threatened rebellion when federal troops approached with a non-Morman governor to replace Brigham Young. The Supreme Court outraged northern Republicans and abolitionists with the Dred Scott decision ("a breathtaking example of judicial activism"). And when a proslavery minority in Kansas Territory tried to foist a proslavery constitution on a large antislavery majority, President Buchanan reneged on a crucial commitment and supported the minority, a disastrous miscalculation which ultimately split the Democratic party in two."--Jacket

The Iroquois in the Civil War : from battlefield to reservation by Laurence M Hauptman( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When General Lee entered the room at the Appomattox Courthouse, where the terms of surrender were to be signed, he was startled by the presence of a Native American, Ely S. Parker, who was General Grant's military secretary and the man who would transcribe the historic document. Parker was almost certainly the most prominent Iroquois to serve with the Union Army, but in fact there were hundreds more who were directly involved in the Civil War itself and thousands back home who were adversely affected by its course. This is their story. Despite the perennial interest in the American Civil War, historians have not examined sufficiently how Native American communities were affected by this watershed event in U.S. history. This ground-breaking book by one of the foremost Iroquois historians significantly adds to our understanding of this subject by providing the first intimate look at the Iroquois' involvement in the American Civil War and its devastating impact on Iroquois communities"--Jacket
With charity for all : Lincoln and the restoration of the Union by William C Harris( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Reconstruction is usually associated with the period after the Civil War, it may be said to have begun when Abraham Lincoln, in his 1861 inaugural address, announced his intention to preserve the Union. The first comprehensive examination of wartime Reconstruction, With Charity for All offers a bold new interpretation of Lincoln's efforts to restore the seceded Southern states to the Union while the Civil War raged. Based in part upon his extensive research in the Library of Congress's Abraham Lincoln Papers, William C. Harris maintains that Lincoln - who preferred the term restoration to reconstruction - held a fundamentally conservative position on the process of reintegrating the South, one that permitted a large measure of self-reconstruction. Reasoning that individuals, not states, had rebelled, Lincoln sought to replace those who had usurped constitutional authority with white Southern Unionists who would restore legitimate governments in their states. Beginning with the elevation of Lincoln's policies, describes what happened when military and civil agents tried to implement them, and evaluates the president's successes and failures in attempting a quick restoration of the Southern states to their "proper practical relation with the Union."

The letters of Jessie Benton Frémont by Jessie Benton Frémont( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bold, talented, and ambitious, Jessie Benton Frémont was one of Victorian America's most controversial women. As the daughter of powerful Senator Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri and the wife of John C. Frémont- western explorer, presidential candidate, and Civil War general- she not only witnessed but struggled to influence many of the major events of her time. Despite the restrictions she faced as a women, she managed to carve out a vital role for herself as a writer, dedicated abolitionist, and "secretary and other self" to her mercurial husband. She collaborated on his best-selling exploration reports, served as his behind-the-scenes political advisor and chief Civil War aide, and worked as a lobbyist for Arizona mining interests. The authors create a compelling portrait of this remarkable woman. -- from book jacket

The clansman; an historical romance of the Ku Klux Klan by Thomas Dixon( Book )

2 editions published in 1905 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The year was 1865. With the close of the Civil War, there began for the South, an era of even greater turmoil. In The Clansman, his controversial 1905 novel, later the basis of the motion picture The Birth of a Nation, Thomas Dixon, describes the social, political, and economic disintegration that plagued the South during Reconstruction, depicting the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and the reactions of two families to racial conflict. This study in social history was alternatively praised and damned by contemporary critics. As historian Thomas D. Clark notes in his introduction, the novel "opened wider a vein of racial hatred which was to poison further an age already in social and political upheaval. Dixon had in fact given voice in his novel to one of the most powerful latent forces in the social and political mind of the South." For modern readers, The Clansman probes the roots of the racial violence that still haunts our society. --! From publisher's description
