War between organized groups within the same state or country
The Lost Cause narrative would have us believe that Confederate monuments have always been celebrated, but people have protested them since they started going up. Historian Karen Cox unpacks how the United Daughters of the Confederacy used propaganda to dominate generations of teachings about the Civil War through textbooks, legislation, and popular culture—and how, after the war, the South and the North prized white reconciliation over justice for all.

On this spooky episode, we'll be talking to Dave from Victorian Photo Studio in Gettysburg (@vps_gettysburg on IG) about tintypes and ghost photos! We'll also tell you all about some ridiculously explosive film that was essentially gunpowder. Ever wanted to know how to spot a fake ghost photo? It's pretty easy, but we'll tell you how anyway! There's also Tiffen Sinclair (@tiffen.sinclair on IG), zine reviews and oodles more. Dave Wilson! Dave is a tintypist and historian who brings your Victorian dreams to life (or death) using traditional old timey photography. He's also been trying to replicate William Mumler's techniques of producing “spectral images.” Our talk with him was wonderful and entertaining. Here are a few of his tintypes: During the interview, Dave mentioned a couple of Civil War photos: Tidball's Battery Regiment resting at Fredericksburg, Va Nitrate Film Have you ever seen the words “Safety Film” marked on the edge of your rolls or sheets? Just what does it mean? If this film is “safe,” is there “unsafe” film? Nitrate film (or as they called it then, film) wasn't dynomite. Yes, it was hazardous, it was explosive, but a lot of things were back then. I mean, they had kerosene lamps in the house - just burning away above your heads. That said, nitrate film, especially when it came to motion picture film, wasn't without its victims. At room temperature, nitrate film is almost perfectly safe-ish. But get too much above (say, 200 F) and you're inching towards a very low flash point. Remember, this is essentially gun powder, except more explosive and more flammable. For fire to burn, it needs oxygen and fuel. Take either away and out goes fire. A candle can be snuffed out by a bell, which deprives it of oxygen, or by cutting off the wick, which removes the fuel. Nitrate film is fascinating because it contains its own oxygen and is its own fuel. Simply put, it can never be extinguished - it has to burn itself out. Even submerging it in water won't do the trick. You can't smother it with dirt or even in a fire blanket. And if you try to, it'll release clouds of poison gases. Here are some scenes from the 1929 Cleveland Clinic Fire, which we discussed in the episode: Zine Reviews Elsie's Camera is a ¼ size zine out out by M Forrester - @itsbittertooth on IG.

Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut commemorating the loss of one of America's most historic figures, General Colin Powell, who has died of Covid-19 complications at the age of 84. Then, we discuss the House select committee investigating Jan. 6 being set to vote Tuesday night on a resolution referring Steve Bannon for charges of criminal contempt for defying the select committee subpoena for his records and testimony. Plus, our expert guest analyzes the possible motives of the two Democratic senators holding the Build Back Better bill hostage--Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin. Next, Jury selection began Monday in the trial of three White, Georgia men charged with murdering 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery in what some people, including President Biden, have called a modern-day lynching. Wanda Cooper-Jones, Ahmaud Arbery's mother, joins The ReidOut on whether she believes justice will be served. Finally, filmed from the final year of President Obama's presidency to the present, the new documentary "Civil War," airing Sunday at 10 pm ET on MSNBC, examines how differing narratives about this pivotal war shape our beliefs to this day.

GRANT, THE FRAGILE UNION AND THE CRISIS OF 1876From Bret Baier, New York Times bestselling author, award-winning chief political anchor for Fox News Channel, and the anchor and executive editor of Special Report with Bret Baier, comes TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC: Ulysses S. Grant, the Fragile Union, and the Crisis of 1876 (Custom House; Hardcover; $28.99; on sale October 12, 2021), a riveting and timely reassessment of Ulysses S. Grant. This first installment in Baier's new book series illuminates the life and legacy of one of America's most consequential yet misunderstood leaders, Ulysses S. Grant, whose actions both as general and as president played an unparalleled role in preserving the United States.Published against the backdrop of our own time's extreme political division and recent contested election, Baier's meticulously researched narrative could not be more relevant. While Grant's military genius during the Civil War is rightly celebrated, it has overshadowed our appreciation of his remarkable political leadership as president during the Reconstruction Era. Baier argues that Grant's two terms in the White House were equally consequential, notably his commitment to protecting the rights of African Americans and suppressing the Ku Klux Klan. All the while, Grant sought to all hold together the fragile Union-a mission that would be tested by a crisis that consumed his last days in office, one that threated to plunge the nation back into civil war.Born a tanner's son in rugged Ohio in 1822 and battle-tested by the Mexican American War, Grant met his destiny on the bloody fields of the Civil War. His daring and resolve as a general gained the attention of President Lincoln who appointed Grant as Lieutenant General of the Union Army in March 1864. Within a year, Grant's forces had seized Richmond and forced Robert E. Lee to surrender. Four years later, the reunified nation faced another leadership void when, following Lincoln's assassination, an unworthy successor completed his term. Again Grant answered the call. At stake once more was the future of the Union, for though the Southern states had been defeated, it remained to be seen if the former Confederacy could be reintegrated into the country-and if the Union could ensure the rights and welfare of African Americans in the South. Grant met the challenge by boldly advancing an agenda of Reconstruction.In his final weeks in the White House, however, Grant faced a crisis that threatened to undo his life's work. The contested presidential election of 1876 produced no clear victory for either Republican Rutherford B. Hayes or Democrat Samuel Tilden, who carried most of the former Confederacy. Soon Southern states vowed to revolt if Tilden was not declared the victor. Grant was determined to use his influence to conserve the Union, establishing an electoral commission to peaceably settle the issue. Grant brokered a grand bargain: the installation of Republican Hayes to the presidency, with concessions to the Democrats that effectively ended Reconstruction. This painful, though perhaps necessary compromise saved the Union, but the consequences of Reconstruction's roll-back stills haunt the country.Deep with contemporary resonance and brimming with fresh detail, TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC reveals Grant, for all his complexity, to be among the first rank of American heroes.PRISE FOR TO RESCUE THE REPUBLIC"With To Rescue The Republic, Bret Baier, the nation's leading reporter of history, has written a veritable tour de force. This remarkable book is history as it should be: magnificently composed, meticulously researched, and brimming with lessons for today's divided political arena. Baier has brought to life the riveting but too often forgotten story of how US Grant preserved the Republic at one of its moments of greatest peril. This is not just a tale for our age, but an absorbing tale for the ages. It belongs on the bookshelf of every lover of history."- Jay Winik, New York Times bestselling author of April 1865 and 1944"Bret Baier's To Rescue the Republic is narrative history at its absolute finest. With great verve and a fair-and-balanced ethic, Baier brilliantly recounts the heroic life of Ulysses S. Grant - as Civil War general, U.S. President, Reconstruction Era leader and beloved national icon. His dramatic retelling of the election of 1876 which pitted Samuel J Tilden against Rutherford B. Hayes is stupendous. A fast-paced, thrilling and enormously important book. Highly recommended!"- Douglas Brinkley, the Katherine Tsanoff Brown Chair in Humanities and Professor of History at Rice University and author of American Moonshot

Episode Notes In this episode, Samantha and Aaron step back from examining actual pieces of lore in order to share their own personal paranormal experiences. They examine the reasons why eye-witness testimonies of supernatural phenomena need to be handled with care, the ways their own experiences influence the way they interpret those from others, and how their training as historians has prepared them to analyze sources.

October 18, 2021 - America's only bachelor president has had whispers about his relationship with a certain vice president for almost two centuries. But were they more than friends, and why does the answer matter in 2021? Our time machine travels back to the pre-Civil War period, to delve into the personal lives of our 15th president, James Buchanan, and his roommate William Rufus King, the 13th vice president -- a pair that has long been the target of snickering, insults -- and more recently, of celebration. Our guide on this journey is a historian, not a gossip columnist. Thomas Balcerski and he brings us Bosom Friends: The Intimate World of James Buchanan and William Rufus King. Tom is a presidential and political historian at Eastern Connecticut State University, as well as a contributor for CNN, NBC Connecticut, and Made by History, the Washington Post's history blog.

In this episode, we finish up the story of the siege of Vicksburg. Once Grant crossed the Mississippi River with his army, it appeared that Vicksburg was doomed. In a brilliant campaign of maneuver, Grant isolated Vicksburg from the rest of the Confederacy. While worried about General Johnston's army, the Confederates were unable to coordinate a strategy to save the city. After an initial, bloody attempt to breech the city's fortifications, Grant settled in for siege. Worried about the health of his army and the civilian population, Pemberton surrendered to Grant on July 4, 1863. It was a key moment in the war. The Confederacy was split. The South's quest for independence was in jeopardy. Have a question, comment, or compliment? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

President Biden's Build Back Better agenda remains in jeopardy as his own party continues to squabble over its cost and details. The stalemate comes at a time when the White House is in need of a big political win and the Democrats chances of holding on to power after the 2022 midterms are shrinking. Earlier this week, Anchor and Executive Editor of Special Report on the Fox News Channel, Bret Baier joined host Jessica Rosenthal to discuss the Democrats' infighting, President Biden's low poll numbers and how all of this is only benefiting the Republicans Bret also talked about his new book, "To Rescue the Republic: Ulysses S. Grant, the Fragile Union, and the Crisis of 1876," and the challenges we faced in the years after the Civil War. The interview was too long and a lot Bret Baier's analysis of both problems of today and America's history did not make it in our original segment. On the FOX News Rundown Extra you will hear our entire conversation.

The Vesterheim has 80 spinning wheels. Laurann Gilbertson says that they didn't really mean to have so many, but it seems that every woman who emigrated from Norway in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century came prepared to make the cloth she needed to run her household: the wool and linen krokbragd coverlets, linens for wearing and bedding, carefully embellished folk costume, and all the other textiles that a woman in a new country and generations after her would need to live comfortably. In time, she might switch to commercial cotton thread for her hardanger embroidery or stop spinning her own sheep's wool, but producing cloth was an important part of life, so it's best to be prepared. The spinning wheels are treasures (but the museum probably won't accept any more). The museum also has rugs, coverlets, hand coverings, folk garments, knitwear (of course!), tapestries, and other Norwegian and Norwegian-American items from a Viking sword to Rosemaling chests to photographs and furnishings. Laurann shares the joys of working with, learning about, and caring for a museum's collections. as well as some of the difficult decisions that curators face. She offers expert advice on how to make the most of a museum—and how to make the most of your own family's treasures, museum-worthy or not. Vesterheim is one of many museums centered on a specific cultural or historic focus, but the elements of running a museum are shared across the field: collecting and preserving according to a policy, assisting in research for scholars, making the collection available to the public, and promoting education about the museum's area of interest. Vesterheim Museum (https://vesterheim.org/) is located in Decorah, Iowa.

Darrell Castle talks about the so-called federal mandate for employers with 100 or more employees to require the COVID vaccine for all employees which now seems to be just a bluff. Transcription /Notes THE FEDERAL MANDATE IS JUST A BLUFF Hello this is Darrell Castle with today's Castle Report. This is the 15th day of October in the year 2021 and today I will be talking about the so-called federal mandate for employers with 100 or more employees to require the COVID vaccine for all employees. It now seems that the whole thing was just a bluff by the Biden Administration to persuade private employers to do its dirty work. The Castle Family is doing fine this week despite the stacked odds as we head into the fall season here in the River City. The leaves are beginning to turn and fall, and soon we will enter what I refer to as leaf apocalypse in my yard. Everyone is healthy and the family daughter is still doing well out in the wonderful city of angels. Yes, the president, or whoever runs the Biden Administration, apparently knew that he had no legal authority to tell the American people that they could not work without the vaccine. In an effort to ensure that every American was vaccinated the government searched the depths of whatever passes for its mind and concluded that since there was no lawful authority perhaps private employers could be persuaded or intimidated to do the government's dirty work for it. The president announced that he was ordering all employers with 100 or more employees to require vaccination as a condition of employment. Many employers complied with what they thought was a lawful order. Some apparently were happy to have government cover for what they wanted to do anyway, some were intimidated, and some just wanted to be down with the cause, Whatever the motivation many people lost their livelihood because of the mandate. It was supposed to apply to all fields of employment from government to medical, to industrial. I personally talked to two different heads of two medical groups who mandated the vaccine and as a result, many or most of their nurses walked out. Nurses were fired across the country especially in New York City where brave nurses went public with their decision. If the government really cared about the health of Americans, why would it orchestrate the firing of so many frontline health workers. It was all just a bluff by a federal government that has apparently descended into madness, pure evil, or both. Joe Biden has no legal authority to issue such an order and someone in his administration apparently knew that but decided to run the bluff anyway. There was no law duly passed by congress, and not even an unconstitutional executive order was issued, it was just a badly run bluff. The administration made press statements about it, and their captive media announced it as fact, but press announcements are not law either. Many companies announced that their mandates were to begin in December as required by federal law, but a few brave people refused to comply. The constitution does not give the federal government such power except when the government by decree takes control of everything as in the Civil War. No civil war exists now so the states have plenary power to regulate the health and safety of their own citizens. No authority to impose a fine on people who refuse to be vaccinated exists, at least no lawful authority. I suppose the administration was counting on the pre-programed for compliance American people to just go along, but it found that some of us are not sheep, at least not yet. The mandate was effective in intimidating companies, especially those with federal contracts into compliance. Some resisted, but we found that most state governors complained about it but used none of their executive authority to do anything about it. Some state governors did, however, refuse to comply. The governors of Florida and Texas issued executive orders which ordered employers in their states ...

In late August my son & I embarked on a cross country trip from Texas to VA then home again via a fairly circuitous route. Along the way we visited 7 different Civil War battlefields and stayed with multiple liberty friends.

"Did you ever hear of the phantom train?" On Saturday September 6th 1879, readers of The Wichita Kansas Herald were treated to a good ol' fashioned ghost story. What set it apart (aside from it being published and republished nationwide) was the type of ghost, the central character to an old railroad switchman's tale - a phantom train. Not just any train, the funerary train of arguably the most important person in United States History...President Abraham Lincoln. As mentioned in the introduction, there is an amazing book by author Peter Manseau entitled; The Apparitionists: A Tale of Phantoms, Fraud, Photography, and the Man Who Captured Lincoln's Ghost. The book explores the influence (and importance) of photography in this particular era - and while unrelated to this particular story, it illuminates a confluence of cultural, technological and sociological factors that might help explain it...@fascinationpod

One is about a diamondback rattlesnake who participated in the Civil War, another details the tale of how a girl found a story to tell to her class. We have several real life stories about dogs from Dan Keding, and a song from John McCutcheon about an outlaw who may have been more good than bad, if you pay attention.

Just months after the Civil War ended, former Confederates had regained political footholds in Washington, D.C. In her overview of Reconstruction, Kate Masur notes how—in the face of evolving, post-slavery white supremacy—Black people claimed their citizenship and began building institutions of their own. Ahmad Ward then takes us to 1860s Mitchelville, South Carolina, where Black policing power, land ownership and more self-governance were the norm.
Hate and division on Facebook are not just a problem in the U.S. That's one of the messages whistleblower Frances Haugen took to Congress last week, where she accused Facebook's algorithms of quote, "literally fanning ethnic violence in Ethiopia," a country that's endured nearly a year of civil war. Freelance reporter Zecharias Zelalem has been keeping track of how inflammatory posts on Facebook have led to attacks in the real world. And NPR's East Africa Correspondent Eyder Peralta describes what Ethiopia looks like from the ground as he moves closer toward the conflict. In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what's going on in your community.Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

With rising speculation that former President Donald Trump will seek the 2024 GOP nomination and make a run for the White House, many on the left and in the media see another Trump presidency as a harbinger of a constitutional crisis on a scale unmatched since the Civil War. However, if the past five years have taught us anything, it is that Trump and his supporters are not the sole authors of our political mess. Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. joined Marc and Dany to discuss Trump, the Russian collusion hoax, the abdication of the press, and the real threats to our political system and institutions. Holman Jenkins is a member of the editorial board of the Wall Street Journal and the author of its biweekly “Business World” column. Mr. Jenkins won a 1997 Gerald Loeb Award for distinguished business and financial coverage, and in 2013 he became the inaugural winner of the Calvin Coolidge Prize for Journalism. https://www.aei.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Final-WTH-Transcript-Jenkins-10.13.21.pdf (Download the transcript here. )

If the United States has been so hostile to Marxism, what accounts for Marxism's recurrent attractiveness to certain Americans? Marxism and America: New Appraisals (Manchester University Press, 2021) sheds new light on that question in essays engaging sexuality, gender, race, nationalism, class, memory, and much more, from the Civil War era through to 21st century cultures of activism. This book is an invaluable resource for historians and theorists of US political struggle. I was joined for this interview by editors Christopher Phelps and Robin Vandome (both University of Nottingham), and contributors Mara Keire (Oxford University) and Andrew Hartman (Illinois State University). We discussed the impetus behind the book and its broader scholarly context, before turning to Mara's chapter ("Class, commodity, consumption: theorizing sexual violence during the feminist sex wars of the 1980s") and finally Andrew's chapter ("Rethinking Karl Marx: American liberalism from the New Deal to the Cold War"). We hope you enjoy our conversation as much as we enjoyed recording it! Catriona Gold is a PhD candidate in Geography at University College London, researching security, subjectivity and mobility in the 20-21st century United States.

That's according to recent polling by Larry Sabato, who joins Charlie Sykes on today's podcast. As long as Donald Trump remains on the stage, democracy in America is not safe, says Sabato. Special Guest: Larry Sabato .

When a Civil War substitute broker told business associates that "Men is cheep here to Day," he exposed an unsettling contradiction at the heart of the Union's war effort. Despite Northerners' devotion to the principles of free labor, the war produced rampant speculation and coercive labor arrangements that many Americans labeled fraudulent. Debates about this contradiction focused on employment agencies called "intelligence offices," institutions of dubious character that nevertheless served the military and domestic necessities of the Union army and Northern households. Northerners condemned labor agents for pocketing fees above and beyond contracts for wages between employers and employees. Yet the transactions these middlemen brokered with vulnerable Irish immigrants, Union soldiers and veterans, former slaves, and Confederate deserters defined the limits of independence in the wage labor economy and clarified who could prosper in it. Men Is Cheap shows that in the process of winning the war, Northerners were forced to grapple with the frauds of free labor. Labor brokers, by helping to staff the Union military and Yankee households, did indispensable work that helped the Northern state and Northern employers emerge victorious. They also gave rise to an economic and political system that enriched the managerial class at the expense of laborers--a reality that resonates to this day. Available here "Men Is Cheap" is published by the University of North Carolina Press.
