Kristin Charney A Sisterhood of Seclusion. Medieval Women.s Writing

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, , course: English, language: English, abstract: Religious women writers have never been fully recognized for the enormous contribution they made to modern feminism. By looking at religious texts, we can identify that these women have made a literary difference with their proto-feminist texts. It is currently accepted within Women's Studies and other gender-related studies that feminism is divided into three distinct waves. These waves are divided according to their respective time periods, shifts in ideologies, and sociopolitical change. First-wave feminism, infamous for the battle for women's suffrage and changes to marriage laws, was followed in the 1960s by the second-wave: a period dedicated to political activism, and a period that spawned the emergence of Marxist feminism, liberal feminism, and socialist feminism. The third wave was a realization and embracement of different cultures and classes of women, and resulted in the expansion of the definition of feminism. While the method of dividing the periods of feminism into waves is effective, it is also restrictive when taking into consideration the catalyst (or catalysts) for modern feminism. Scholars embarking on their journey in Women's Studies or other related courses are readily introduced to the most graphic images of feminism: pioneers for women's suffrage being hauled off to prison, radical feminis...

Sopheada Phy Foreign Aid-Corruption Nexus in Cambodia. Its Consequences on the Propensity of Civil War

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, grade: A, University for Peace (Department of Peace and Conflict Studies), course: International Peace Studies, language: English, abstract: Contemporary Cambodia is most likely best known for two things, aid dependency and corruption. The thesis initially seeks to examine the nexus between foreign aid and corruption in Cambodia since 1993, the time when a huge influx of foreign aid injected into the country following the withdrawal of UNTAC, then explores if the correlation of the two encourages the propensity of civil war, and ultimately analyzes if the onset of civil war is attainable in the case that the propensity of civil war is feasible. Drawing from the analysis, the thesis concludes that "Foreign aid, particularly loans, indirectly instigates civil war by partly generating corruption, particularly political corruption, because corruption makes aid ineffective in contributing to economic growth and poverty reduction, while encourages huge economic inequality and chronic poverty, which makes Cambodia more vulnerable and prone to civil war". However, the civil war in Cambodia is manifested or not depends on the motivation and initiative to be resisted and the means of financing the resistant group. Given the status quo of Cambodia, it is possible that the prominent opposition groups such as the opposition political parties can in...

Robert Grandchamp Now Show Them What Rhode Island Can Do! An Annotated Bibliography of Rhode Island Civil War Sources

Rhode Islanders served in nearly every major battle of the war, firing the first infantry shots at Bull Run, and some of the last by the cavalry at Appomattox. Over 23,000 Rhode Islanders enlisted in the Civil War; over 2,000 gave the ultimate sacrifice.From 1862 until the second decade of the twentieth century, the soldiers and sailors of Rhode Island also left an indelible mark on the pages of history by writing and publishing many histories of their participation in the Civil War. Indeed, with the exception of Batteries C and G, First Rhode Island Light Artillery and the Second and Third Rhode Island Cavalry Regiments, every unit sent from Rhode Island published a history written by men who served in the organization. Over the last century these veteran-published sources were added to by scores of other books and articles by scholars, buffs, and those interested in Rhode Island’s role in the Civil War. Indeed, Rhode Island has perhaps the greatest written record of any northern state in the Civil War era.This volume represents every known published work (books, pamphlets, thesis, and monographs) relating to Rhode Island and the Civil War published between 1862 and 2018. Chapters include: General Sources, Biographical Sources, Rhode Island Militia Sources, Infantry Sources, Light Artillery Sources, Heavy Artillery Sources, Cavalry Sources, Naval Sources, Town Histories, Monuments and Cemeteries, and Conclusions, which discusses the future of publications about Rhode Island ...

Revisiting 20th Century Wars.

The collection at hand is a subjective, but representative selection of articles in German and English on the representation of bellicose acts in modern times.The wide range of wars treated in these essays begins with the Canudos Civil War in the Brazilian state of Bahia in 1896-97. The various articles include new perceptions and interpretations of the First World War, the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39, the Holocaust, the Second World War, the Korean War, the wars in the former Portuguese colonies of Africa, and the Balkan Wars of the last decade of the 20th century, and close with the current war in Afghanistan, which began in 2001. The wars discussed, although having different origins, such as national pride, territorial expansion, fanatic religiousness, ethnic and racial conflicts, great social differences, the process of decolonization, and terrorism, have one thing in common: their significant and constant repercussion in the print and broadcast media over a long period of time. These modern wars have therefore often been the object of new readings and reinterpretations until today. The history of these wars could not have been written without the development of journalism, the mass media, and new technologies of war reporting in the 20th century.

James F. Rhodes History of the Civil War 1861-1865

This landmark study of the most traumatic era in American history won a Pulitzer Prize in 1918 for its concise, clear-minded survey of the Civil War from political and economic perspectives.From "the great factor in the destruction of slavery"-the election of Abraham Lincoln as President in 1860-to the "twenty thousand men in Wall Street" who sang to celebrate the war's end four years later, Rhodes, a self-taught historian, lends a distinctive voice to his retelling of the war. All students of the upheaval and disorder of the period will appreciate this enduring and unusual perspective on it.

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject Orientalism / Sinology - Islamic Studies, grade: 1,7, University of Tubingen (Asien-Orient-Institut), course: Sexualität und Zeitehe, language: English, abstract: Is Islamic feminism in total contrary to Western feminism? What are Islamic feminists fighting for and can one use the term "feminism" relating to Islam? How do Iranian women act with their rights in a country which is a role model for women's oppression in the Western world? In my work I want to answer these and other questions. In the first part of the following work I give a general overview of Islamic feminism. I will define the term and distinct it from what is known as "Western feminism". I introduce "three ideal types" of Islamic feminists and describe the Islamic feminist discourse and activism according to the Islamic jurisprudence and tradition. After that I focus on the women and their feminism in Iran. Feminism has a long history in Iran and is in total contrary to Western feminism. But the aims of the Islamic feminists changed from during the Islamic Revolution in 1979. Journalism and women's magazines are a very important organ of the feminists in Iran. Both the "religious" and "secular" spheres use it to discuss women's issues and criticise actual political decisions and social grievance. I will picture the most important magazines and the most discussed topics.In the last part I introduce one of the la...

Germans in the Civil War. The Letters They Wrote Home

German Americans were one of the largest immigrant groups in the Civil War era, and they comprised nearly 10 percent of all Union troops. Yet little attention has been paid to their daily lives--both on the battlefield and on the home front--during the war. This collection of letters, written by German immigrants to friends and family back home, provides a new angle to our understanding of the Civil War experience and challenges some long-held assumptions about the immigrant experience at this time. Originally published in Germany in 2002, this collection contains more than three hundred letters written by seventy-eight German immigrants--men and women, soldiers and civilians, from the North and South. Their missives tell of battles and boredom, privation and profiteering, motives for enlistment and desertion and for avoiding involvement altogether. Although written by people with a variety of backgrounds, these letters describe the conflict from a distinctly German standpoint, the editors argue, casting doubt on the claim that the Civil War was the great melting pot that eradicated ethnic antagonisms.

Osadola Oluwaseun Samuel Diplomacy in the context of the Nigeria Civil War

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject African Studies, grade: none, , course: International Studies and Diplomacy, language: English, abstract: War is the highest form of political struggle for resolving contradictions, when they have developed to a certain stage either between classes, nations, states or political groups. Hence, the rapport between war and peace is being determined by the approach or position of diplomacy. Since the failure of diplomacy usually laid the basis for the start of war, and after all wars, peace often reign, it is of enormous significance to recognize the important relationship between war and diplomacy. Like all civil wars, the Nigerian civil war was unique in the context of the nation's history. This is because it was the most vivid expression of a country turned against itself. As with civil wars in other countries, the Nigerian civil war can be analyzed within the context of a failed diplomatic act. Hence, this paper discussed the position of negotiation or peace talk before and after the Nigerian civil war of 1967-1970. It has also looked at the general impact of diplomacy during the period of the crisis.

Peter Egyed The Indians and the Civil War - Effects of the American Civil War on the Native American History

The North American Indian - or, as they prefer to be called themselves: Native American - history has always been a study full of ambiguous points. Nowadays, when the outlived tribes still live on poor circumstances and try to keep step with our running world despairingly, their unique culture deserves more attention than used to. I created my book with the goal of explore and uncover maybe the most tragic and exciting period of Native American persecutions: in the age of the Civil War. In this synthesis-like work I have tried to demonstrate that the Civil War influenced the Indian Wars in the American West in several aspects. The analysis has been built by three units; The first one is a survey on the Indian history from the beginnings till the 1860s. The middle part contents deep connections between the Civil War and Indian politics. The last chapter presents useful instructions for educational purposes. I recommend this compilation for those who are interested in Native American / Civil War history and politics or simply eager to obtain some knowledge of them and for those who would like to get practical ideas to process this odd topic for school lesson teaching.

David Goldfield Still Fighting the Civil War. The American South and Southern History (Updated)

In the updated edition of his sweeping narrative on southern history, David Goldfield brings this extensive study into the present with a timely assessment of the unresolved issues surrounding the Civil War s sesquicentennial commemoration. Traversing a hundred and fifty years of memory, Goldfield confronts the remnants of the American Civil War that survive in the hearts of many of the South s residents and in the national news headlines of battle flags, racial injustice, and religious conflicts. Goldfield candidly discusses how and why white southern men fashioned the myths of the Lost Cause and Redemption out of the Civil War and Reconstruction, and how they shaped a religion to canonize the heroes and deify the events of those fateful years. He also recounts how groups of blacks and white women eventually crafted a different, more inclusive version of southern history and how that new vision competed with more traditional perspectives. The battle for southern history, and for the South, continues in museums, public spaces, books, state legislatures, and the minds of southerners. Given the region s growing economic power and political influence, understanding this war takes on national significance. Through an analysis of ideas of history and memory, religion, race, and gender, Still Fighting the Civil War provides us with a better understanding of the South and one another.

Daniel S. Lucks Selma to Saigon. The Civil Rights Movement and the Vietnam War

The civil rights and anti–Vietnam War movements were the two greatest protests of twentieth-century America. The dramatic escalation of U.S. involvement in Vietnam in 1965 took precedence over civil rights legislation, which had dominated White House and congressional attention during the first half of the decade. The two issues became intertwined on January 6, 1966, when the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) became the first civil rights organization to formally oppose the war, protesting the injustice of drafting African Americans to fight for the freedom of the South Vietnamese people when they were still denied basic freedoms at home.Selma to Saigon explores the impact of the Vietnam War on the national civil rights movement. Before the war gained widespread attention, the New Left, the SNCC, and the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) worked together to create a biracial alliance with the potential to make significant political and social gains in Washington. Contention over the war, however, exacerbated preexisting generational and ideological tensions that undermined the coalition, and Lucks analyzes the causes and consequences of this disintegration.This powerful narrative illuminates the effects of the Vietnam War on the lives of leaders such as Whitney Young Jr., Stokely Carmichael, Roy Wilkins, Bayard Rustin, and Martin Luther King Jr., as well as other activists who faced the threat of the military draft along with race-related discrimination and vio...

James F. Rhodes History of the United States. From the Compromise of 1850 to the McKinley-Bryan Campaign of 1896, Vol. I (in Eight Volumes)

This classic survey of one of the most dramatic eras in American history is most notable, perhaps, for the insight it offers into the mindset of the era itself. First published from 1893 through 1906, in the immediate aftermath of the events it covers, it was criticized even then for the author's clear bias-Rhodes believed it was a mistake to have given black men the right to vote after the Civil War. Today, it remains a fascinating look at the times through a prism that is itself of historical interest.This eight-volume set is a replica of the 1920 "new" edition.Volume I covers:• slavery and the Constitution• the Missouri Compromise• the abolitionist movement• Northern attitudes toward slavery• the Fugitive Slave law• *Uncle Tom's Cabin*• the condition of slaves in the pre-Civil War era• tensions with Spain• and much more.After earning a fortune in iron, coal, and steel, American author JAMES FORD RHODES (1848-1927) retired to write about history, for which he won the Loubat Prize from the Berlin Academy of Sciences (1901) and the gold medal from the National Institute of Arts and Letters (1910). He is also the author of the single-volume *History of the Civil War, 1861-1865* (1918), available from Cosimo.

Miguel Montero Manolo. a Child in the Spanish Civil War

The Spanish civil war exploded when the core of the Spanish character, forged over centuries, was assailed by the actions of new but misguided ideas in conflict with the Spanish spirit. Manolo is a living ghost of childhood lost, brought about by the horror of the war, that left the Country scarred for many decades. Wounds, which will never quite heal. It is through his eyes, the eyes of a ten-year-old child, that the consequences of such tragic conflict are viewed. Together with his friends, two boys and a girl of the same age, he transports us to the days, back in history, when death was around the corner and was accepted as the norm; when threats to innocent lives easily became a quick step to execution for the most trivial reasons; when food was scarce to the point of starvation. And amidst this turmoil Manolo survived as a refugee of adversity.

Audrey Bilger Laughing Feminism. Subversive Comedy in Frances Burney, Maria Edgeworth, and Jane Austen (Revised)

Laughing Feminism focuses on comedy in the works of Frances Burney, Maria Edgeworth, and Jane Austen, authors who scrutinized the subjected prejudices against women in order to expose their absurdity and encourage readers to laugh at the folly of sexist views. Audrey Bilger shows that these women writers employed a full arsenal of comic weapons such as satire, burlesque, and parody to combat patriarchal nonsense and make comedy out of the discrepancies between the myth and reality of womanhood. Bilger draws on current feminist criticism, comic theory, and the methodologies of literary history to provide a context for re-assessing the novels of these writers. At a time when overt feminist statements could ruin a woman's reputation, comedy enabled these authors to smuggle feminism into their writing.

Andrew E Masich THE CIVIL WAR IN ARIZONA. The Story of the California Volunteers, 1861-1865

Bull Run, Gettysburg, Appomattox. For Americans, these battlegrounds, all located in the eastern United States, will forever be associated with the Civil War. But few realize that the Civil War was also fought far to the west of these sites. The westernmost battle of the war took place in the remote deserts of the future state of Arizona.In this first book-length account of the Civil War in Arizona, Andrew E. Masich chronicles the all-but-forgotten story of the California Column, volunteer soldiers who served in the U.S. Army from 1861 to 1866 and played a key role in creating and shaping Arizona Territory.The Civil War in Arizona is divided into two parts: a lively narrative history of the California Column in wartime Arizona, followed by a rare compilation of letters-originally published in the popular newspaper Alta California-written by the volunteer soldiers themselves. Enriched by Masich's meticulous annotation, these letters provide firsthand testimony of the grueling desert conditions the soldiers endured as they fought on many fronts, not the least of which was an uncaring army command structure preoccupied with war in the East.

Lochlainn Seabrook Lincoln.s War. The Real Cause, the Real Winner, the Real Loser

If you believe that the American Civil War was fought over slavery, and that the “North won” and the “South lost,” if you think that Abraham Lincoln was a conservative Republican who “freed the slaves” and that Jefferson Davis was a liberal Democrat who tried to “preserve slavery,” then you’ve been completely misled by the mainstream media and by our left-leaning education system.Read the most important Civil War book in decades, Lincoln’s War: The Real Cause, the Real Winner, the Real Loser, by award-winning historian and Civil War scholar Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook and learn the truth about the Great Conflict of 1861; a truth that overturns all of the lies, slander, revisionist history, Yankee myths, and South-shaming propaganda invented by progressives in an effort to continue the humiliation of conservative Dixie and her people.This seminal work, the first ever to expose the authentic facts about Civil War era Republicans and Democrats, the true origins of the War, and who really won and lost, will finally clarify the illogical and often confusing conventional view of the conflict. Who could seriously believe, for example, that millions of men, women, and children (on both sides) risked their lives to destroy or save slavery? And who can honestly accept the idea that Lincoln was justified in killing countless thousands and bankrupting the U.S. Treasury to “preserve the Union,” or that Davis purposefully turned 8 million Southerners into “traitors” to prove that secession ...

Marvel Comics. Civil War and the Age of Terror. Critical Essays on the Comic Saga

Marvel Comics has an established tradition of addressing relevant real-life issues facing the American public. With the publication of Civil War (2006-2007), a seven-issue crossover storyline spanning the Marvel universe, they focused on contemporary anxieties such as terrorism and threats to privacy and other civil liberties. This collection of new essays explores the Civil War series and its many tie-in titles from the perspectives of history, political science, sociology, psychology, literary criticism, philosophy, law and education. The contributors provide a close reading of the series' main theme--the appropriate balance between freedom and security--and discuss how that balance affects citizenship, race, gender and identity construction in 21st-century America.

Samuel Ford Whittingham With the Spanish Against Napoleon. the Peninsular War experiences of a British Officer

‘Don Santiago’ Whittingham and his ‘Majorca Division’ Given the number of British troops involved in the Peninsular War it is, perhaps, unsurprising that there are many accounts and histories of the war in Spain and Portugal from a British perspective. The Duke of Wellington, one of greatest military figures in British history, became famous in Iberia and his success there helps give the impression that the war was a ‘British Affair’. Spain itself fought a war of pitched battles and guerilla actions to liberate itself for which British writers have, in general, been inclined to give it little credit. On the battlefield, the Spanish occasionally prevailed, but mostly fared little better than the armies of other European nations against Napoleon’s French forces. This book focusses on the war Spain fought against Napoleon and the principal character of this book, whose fascinating career appears regularly in histories of the war. Samford Whittingham was a liaison officer with the Spanish Army. He was present with Spanish forces during several of its most notable engagements. He also trained and led a superb body of Spanish troops on the British model, ‘the Majorca Division’, which became highly regarded by Wellington. Whittingham was present at Buenos Ayres during the disastrous South American venture, at Medellin, Talavera (where he was wounded), Barrosa, and Castalla making this account, especially concerning the campaign in Andalusia and upon the Spanish eastern flank, essent...

Delavan S. Miller Drummer for the Union. Two Works by a Drummer Boy of the American Civil War-Drum Taps in Dixie . a Drum.s Story and Other Tales

A Leonaur 'two in one' original book on the American Civil WarThis unique Leonaur edition is sure to appeal to all enthusiasts of the history of the American Civil War. Both titles contained in this book share a common author and common themes. The young Delavan Miller, at scarcely thirteen years old, enlisted as a drummer boy in the New York Heavy Artillery of the Union Army. He has left posterity with a riveting and engagingly anecdote filled first hand account of his experiences at the sharp end of war-including details of camp and march as well as harrowing accounts of full battle including those of Cold Harbor and Petersburg. What makes this Leonaur edition special is that later in life Miller turned his attention to the writing of fiction, particularly short stories, which not only took the American Civil War as a theme, but also focussed on drums and the boys who played them-those stories are included here. This 'two in one' volume is an essential, welcome and charming addition to any library of the American Civil War.Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.

Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939

From the moment it began in 1936, the Spanish Civil War became the political question of the age. Hitler and Mussolini quickly sent aircraft, troops and supplies to the right-wing generals bent on overthrowing Spain's elected government. Millions of people around the world felt passionately that rapidly advancing fascism must be halted in Spain; if not there, where? More than 35,000 volunteers from dozens of other countries went to help defend the Spanish Republic. Adam Hochschild, the acclaimed author of King Leopold's Ghost, evokes this tumultuous period mainly through the lives of Americans involved in the war. A few are famous, such as Ernest Hemingway, but others are less familiar. They include a nineteen-year-old Kentucky woman, a fiery leftist who came to wartime Spain on her honeymoon; a young man who ran away from his Pennsylvania college and became the first American casualty in the battle for Madrid; and a swashbuckling Texas oilman who covertly violated US law and sold Generalissimo Francisco Franco most of the fuel for his army. Two New York Times reporters, fierce rivals, covered the war from opposite sides, with opposite sympathies. There are Britons in Hochschild's cast of characters as well: one, a London sculptor, fought with the American battalion; another, who had just gone down from Cambridge, joined Franco's army and found himself fighting against the Americans; and a third is someone whose experience of combat in Spain had a profound effect on his life,...

The Greatest Trials I Ever Had. The Civil War Letters of Margaret and Thomas Cahill

This edited collection of Civil War correspondence between Col. Thomas Cahill and his wife, Margaret, offers a rare glimpse into the symbiotic relationship between soldiers and their home communities. In the only substantial extant collection of letters from an Irish American woman on the northern home front, Margaret's pivotal role as a go-between in the financial affairs of men in the regiment and their wives is made evident, as is the broader interplay between the community of New Haven, Connecticut, and the regiment.The couple's correspondence was nearly constant in their four years apart. There is an inherent intimacy in the way that daily life during the Civil War is documented and in particular in the gradual revelation of the emotional toll taken by a long-distance relationship. Because the volume includes letters from both Cahill and his wife, the interplay between the regiment and the home front is traced in a way most collections are not able to achieve.This lively correspondence provides a great introduction to primary source reading for students of the Civil War home front. These teaching opportunities will supplemented by a companion website that features more correspondence, maps, and additional learning materials.

Lone Star Unionism, Dissent, and Resistance. Other Sides of Civil War Texas

Most histories of Civil War Texas—some starring the fabled Hood’s Brigade, Terry’s Texas Rangers, or one or another military figure—depict the Lone Star State as having joined the Confederacy as a matter of course and as having later emerged from the war relatively unscathed. Yet as the contributors to this volume amply demonstrate, the often neglected stories of Texas Unionists and dissenters paint a far more complicated picture. Ranging in time from the late 1850s to the end of Reconstruction,Lone Star Unionism, Dissent, and Resistance restores a missing layer of complexity to the history of Civil War Texas.The authors—all noted scholars of Texas and Civil War history—show that slaves, freedmen and freedwomen, Tejanos, German immigrants, and white women all took part in the struggle, even though some never found themselves on a battlefield. Their stories depict the Civil War as a conflict not only between North and South but also between neighbors, friends, and family members. By framing their stories in the analytical context of the “long Civil War,” Lone Star Unionism, Dissent, and Resistancereveals how friends and neighbors became enemies and how the resulting violence, often at the hands of secessionists, crossed racial and ethnic lines. The chapters also show how ex-Confederates and their descendants, as well as former slaves, sought to give historical meaning to their experiences and find their place as citizens of the newly re-formed nation.Concluding with an account...

Paul Barlin Bumping into History

Born in 1916 to Jewish immigrants, Paul Barlin graduates from high school and is dumped into the Depression. From that point on, his life is interwoven with historical events of Depression era America. In his own words, Barlin tells of coping with "Christian Only" notices in the scarce want ads, unfair treatment from union busting industries, and his own personal struggles with male-female relationships. He hitchikes across the country to see what he can of America, following closely the progress of the Spanish Civil War and Hitler's aggressive takeover of Europe. He finds his voice when he joins a theater group formed with Works Progress Administration funds and, later, when he discovers self-expression through dance. In Los Angeles, he makes history of his own with a landmark change in California's adoption law.

Marilyn Casselman Talking the Walk, the Grassroots Language of Feminism

Feminism is evolutionary. It changed our lives and the world we live in. To a point, that is. Most people know nothing about it.

In TALKING THE WALK, she gives us the nuts and bolts of this story. A brilliant mix of history, personal experience, insights and ideas, TALKING THE WALK is feminism for the mainstream.

Ambrose Bierce Civil War Stories

Popular American writer Ambrose Bierce comes alive in the magnificent collection of short stories, "Civil War Stories." Having been no stranger to the battlefield, Bierce draws upon his experience as a soldier and the stories he heard during the American Civil War in this collection. However, his tales do not happily reminisce about the good times; instead, Bierce's dry wit and love of the macabre guide his stories to much darker places. "Civil War Stories," includes the tale "Chickamauga", the story of a young boy who fell asleep in the woods after playing alone. When he wakes, he sees a group of soldiers marching back from a battle. In jest, the young boy begins marching with them, and even participates in burning a house to the ground. In Bierce's most famous and chronicled story "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge." Peyton Farquhar, a Confederate sympathizer, is tricked by the Union soldiers and is hanged in front of his wife and children. Somehow, though he manages to escape his noose and is able to run far away from the frenzied scene. Regardless of which of the sixteen stories included in this collection that you read, you will be amazed at Bierce's ability to spin a short, suspenseful tale about one of the most tumultuous times in American history.

Emilie Frances Davis Emilie Davis.s Civil War. The Diaries of a Free Black Woman in Philadelphia, 1863-1865

Emilie Davis was a free African American woman who lived in Philadelphia during the Civil War. She worked as a seamstress, attended the Institute for Colored Youth, and was an active member of her community. She lived an average life in her day, but what sets her apart is that she kept a diary. Her daily entries from 1863 to 1865 touch on the momentous and the mundane: she discusses her own and her community's reactions to events of the war, such as the Battle of Gettysburg, the Emancipation Proclamation, and the assassination of President Lincoln, as well as the minutiae of social life in Philadelphia's black community. Her diaries allow the reader to experience the Civil War in "real time" and are a counterpoint to more widely known diaries of the period. Judith Giesberg has written an accessible introduction, situating Davis and her diaries within the historical, cultural, and political context of wartime Philadelphia. In addition to furnishing a new window through which to view the war's major events, Davis's diaries give us a rare look at how the war was experienced as a part of everyday life-how its dramatic turns and lulls and its pervasive, agonizing uncertainty affected a northern city with a vibrant black community.

Marx Karl, Friedrich Engels The Civil War in France

2014 Reprint of 1934 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. "The Civil War in France" was a pamphlet written by Karl Marx as an official statement of the General Council of the International on the character and significance of the struggle of the Parisian Communards in the French Civil War of 1871. In 1891, on the 20th anniversary of the Paris Commune, Engels put together a new edition of the work. He wrote an introduction to this edition, emphasizing the historical significance of the experience of the Paris Commune, and its theoretical generalization by Marx in "The Civil War in France," and also providing additional information on the activities of the Communards from among the Blanquists and Proudhonists. Engels also decided to include earlier material by Marx made for the International - in this way providing additional historical background to the Commune from Marx's account of the Franco-Prussian War. For Marx, the history of the Paris Commune caused him to reassess the significance of some of his own earlier writings.

George C. Browder Germantown, Tennessee, during the Civil War Era

This is the story of Germantown, Tennessee, of the community’s people and their perseverance. It paints a picture of a town that was mostly lost and the life of its citizens before, during and after the Civil War. The area and the larger context in which it lay set the stage for a community's rise and decline. Although today the present city of Germantown is enclosed within the urban environment of greater Memphis, in those days it was fifteen miles from the city and surrounded by farms, plantations and wild river bottoms. It was a land ideally suited for the cavalry raiders, Confederate partisans, guerrilla fighters and bands of deserters who plagued its people to the very last days of the war. Everywhere in the South, the war had both divisive and cohesive effects on society. Germantown’s formerly cohesive and peaceful community would suffer post-war racial and social tensions and violence, economic and sectarian division. If the scars of a fratricidal war fought at your door and the destruction of so much of your means had not been enough reason, the humiliation of Reconstruction with its allegations of treason guaranteed that Southerners would never forget the Civil War. Perhaps their romantic dedication to the “Lost Cause” helped plaster over unhealed social and psychological wounds. Some communities recovered while others did not. After a decade of recovery, Germantown nevertheless suffered the latter fate. The great Yellow Fever epidemic of 1878 was nearly a death ...

Lingering Shadows is a sequel to Glimpses of the Past: Heritage of the Old South. Written as a historical novel, it tells the saga of a young American family after the Civil War. The story entails tragedy of war, patriotism, and love of family. It was created as a love story within an era of war and opposition. Soldiers fought on both sides, facing battle and their enemies. The characters fought for survival after a brutal and bloody war—a war that had significant changes in the entire country. The Civil War lasted four years with dramatic effects on the American people and society. Benjamin Green, the main character, had set out to defend his homeland. When he returned home from war, he was met with contradiction from family members. The characters tell a story of harshness, brutality, and devastation after the destruction of Southern states. The South was determined to rebuild their once rich heritage and land. The war ended in May 1865, but it left lingering shadows as a result.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, , course: English, language: English, abstract: Religious women writers have never been fully recognized for the enormous contribution they made to modern feminism. By looking at religious texts, we can identify that these women have made a literary difference with their proto-feminist texts. It is currently accepted within Women's Studies and other gender-related studies that feminism is divided into three distinct waves. These waves are divided according to their respective time periods, shifts in ideologies, and sociopolitical change. First-wave feminism, infamous for the battle for women's suffrage and changes to marriage laws, was followed in the 1960s by the second-wave: a period dedicated to political activism, and a period that spawned the emergence of Marxist feminism, liberal feminism, and socialist feminism. The third wave was a realization and embracement of different cultures and classes of women, and resulted in the expansion of the definition of feminism. While the method of dividing the periods of feminism into waves is effective, it is also restrictive when taking into consideration the catalyst (or catalysts) for modern feminism. Scholars embarking on their journey in Women's Studies or other related courses are readily introduced to the most graphic images of feminism: pioneers for women's suffrage being hauled off to prison, radical feminis...
