665 the Council of Twelve: Part One - hardcover

Louisiana State Univ Pr. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 132 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.1in. x 0.8in.During the Civil War, private printers in both the North and South produced a vast array of envelopes featuring iconography designed to promote each sides war effort. Many of these covers featured depictions of soldiers, prominent political leaders, Union or Confederate flags, Miss Liberty, Martha Washington, or even runaway slaves--at least fifteen thousand pro-Union and two hundred fifty pro-Confederate designs appeared between 1861 and 1865. In Patriotic Envelopes of the Civil War, the first book-length analysis of these covers, Steven R. Boyd explores their imagery to understand what motivated soldiers and civilians to support a war far more protracted and destructive than anyone anticipated in 1861. Northern envelopes, Boyd shows, typically document the centrality of the preservation of the Union as the key issue that, if unsuccessful, would lead to the destruction of United States, its Constitution, and its way of life. Confederate covers, by contrast, usually illustrate a competing vision of an independent republic free of the tyranny of the United States. Each sides flags and presidents symbolize these two rival viewpoints. Images of presidents Davis and Lincoln, often portrayed as contestants in a boxing match, personalized the contest and served to rally citizens to the cause of southern independence or national preservation. In the course of depicting the events of the period, printers also revealed the impact of the war on females and African Americans. Some envelopes, for example, featured women on the home front engaging in a variety of patriotic tasks that would have been almost unthinkable before the war. African Americans, on the other hand, became far more visible in American popular culture, especially in the North, where Union printers showed them pursuing their own liberation from southern slavery. With more than 180 full-color illustrations, Patriotic Envelopes of the Civil War is a nuanced and fascinating examination of Civil War iconography that moves a previously overlooked source from the periphery of scholarly awareness into the ongoing analysis of Americas greatest tragedy.

Through the years, the people of Baton Rouge have weathered travails while developing a unique culture and city. Baton Rouge has seen occupation during the Civil War, the destruction by fire and reconstruction of the state capitol, catastrophic flooding, and political and civil conflictbut also the economic impact of a growing port, the historic arrivals of Louisiana State University and Southern University, and the joyful rituals of Saturday football and the Washingtons Birthday Firemens Parade. Telling the citys story in words and vivid black and white, Historic Photos of Baton Rouge documents 100-plus years in the life of the Red Stick as only the camera can capture itone engaging image at a time.

Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.8in. x 0.9in.In Minstrelsy and Murder, Andrew Silver locates the foundation of the Souths dark humor in the great and violent cultural upheavals of the nineteenth century. Examining the connection between comic victimization and real acts of aggression, Silver shows southern humor to be a product not of Americas wholeness and national unity but of its internal fears, divisiveness, and perpetual civil strife. He focuses on the work of southern writers Augustus B. Longstreet, George Washington Harris, Charles Chesnutt, and Mark Twain, exploring a strain of regional humor that runs counter to the more familiar American comic tradition. A profound distress about class emerges clearly in Silvers reading of Longstreets Georgia sketches, just as Harriss postCivil War stories reveal an escalating anger toward Yankees, emancipated African Americans and upstart women. Twain and Chesnutt, however, mark a turning point for southern humor, Silver argues. By resisting entrenched comic elements of racist acts of violence and instead using narratives that turn upon and expose the destructive power of racist typing, they created humor that both wounds and dares to speak of wounds. With engaging critical discussion of race, class, and gender, Silver investigates the cultural fears that southern popular comedy of the 1800s addressesas well as the various forms and voices it employed: Yankee humor, minstrelsy, sentimental fiction, political broadsides, Ku Klux Klan sketches, frontier humor, and sadistic slapstick. He shows how southern humor, as the product of middle-class authors who were at once outraged and eminently practical, revolutionary and conformist, anti-authoritarian and craving the approval of authorities, evolved into a genre at war with itself, stifling laughter by unearthing the trauma at the core of the comic.
