Our Country: Northern Evangelicals And The Union During The Civil War Era [Bibliography], 2018 Fordham University
Our Country: Northern Evangelicals And The Union During The Civil War Era [Bibliography], Grant Brodrecht
On March 4, 1865, the day Abraham Lincoln delivered his second inaugural address, Reverend Doctor George Peck put the finishing touches on a collection of his sermons that he intended to send to the president. Although the politically moderate Peck had long opposed slavery, he, along with many other northern evangelicals, was not an abolitionist. During the Civil War he had come to support emancipation, but, like Lincoln, the conflict remained first and foremost about preserving the Union. Believing their devotion to the Union was an act of faithfulness to God first and the Founding Fathers second, Our Country explores ...

"From Serfdom To Culture", Matthew R. Ballard
A young, blind Chinese girl named Jessie Gutzlaff arrived at New York City in 1842 with Mrs. Mary Gutzlaff, wife of famed missionary Karl Gutzlaff. After a short stay at the Institution for the Blind at Columbus, Ohio, Jessie was sent to Albion where she stayed nearly ten years with Ann and Jane Middleton. As a " conscientious worker," Jessie spent the latter portion of her life proofreading 52,679 pages of American Braille within 426 titles at the Pennsylvania Institution for the Instruction of the Blind.
Alien Lands, 2018 Pepperdine University
Alien Lands, Carissa Mosley
Seaver College Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium
Alien Lands has been an academic year-long study and cross-media art endeavor, researching the history of palm trees in Los Angeles and documenting their current presence. I photographed and made videos of the palm trees in Los Angeles and ended the project with a ceremonial installation/performance, grieving the colonial history and unsustainability of palm trees by ironically commemorating them. This body of work is meant to provoke discussion of palm trees' iconicization, their ubiquitous invisibility in our environment, their colonial history, and their likely nonexistent future.
Boosting The Bugle Boy: The Role Of Music In American Patriotism During World War Ii, 2018 Cedarville University
Boosting The Bugle Boy: The Role Of Music In American Patriotism During World War Ii, Brittany L. Roberts
When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on the morning of December 7, 1941, they little realized what a formidable foe they had aroused. An enraged America immediately declared war on Japan. As a result, Germany declared war on America. Now facing enemies on both fronts, America mobilized her troops for action and prepared weapons of mass destruction. The unity experienced by the American people during this time had never been and would never be matched. Both soldiers and civilians launched themselves into the war effort. This great national endeavor called for anthems of reflection and encouragement. While they continued to ...

Phipps Seminary Showed Commitment To Higher Education For Women, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
Phipps Seminary Showed Commitment To Higher Education For Women, Matthew R. Ballard
Proposing the idea of an all-female educational institution in the 1830s, Caroline Phipps was met with heavy opposition from Albion's leading citizens who favored an institution for boys and girls. Pushing forward with her theory that "it is better to teach boys and girls in separate schools," the Phipps Union Seminary became the second institution of its kind in the United States after Emma Willard's school at Troy, NY.
Black Courts, 2018 University of New Mexico - Law
Black Courts, Ernesto A. Longa
Faculty Book Display Case
Pushing past the conventional understanding of federal and state courts and the judicial system, this volume examines eight little-known Florida courts. Part 1 details general jurisdiction courts from 1513 to 1865 while part 2 profiles modern-era special jurisdiction courts.
Beginning with the state's colonial history, Florida's Other Courts challenges narratives that paint Spain's administration of its New World holdings as corrupt, inefficient, and tyrannical, using research into archival records scattered across Spain, Cuba, and other New World sites. Contributors to the volume also demonstrate how British authorities later molded the courts after their own justice ...
Power And Prestige: Progressive Membership In Morristown, New Jersey, 2018 Seton Hall University
Power And Prestige: Progressive Membership In Morristown, New Jersey, Erich Morgan Huhn
Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)
At the turn of the nineteenth century the social, political, and economic foundations of American society began to shift. Old families lost influence to the wealthy new “Robber Barons” while professionals lost prestige as their work increasingly became subsumed within a growing corporate structure. As a result, Progressive politics sought to shake up the system in an attempt to both help modernize archaic systems and reinforce old power structures.
In the case of the Civic Association of Morristown the members from old families and newcomers with professional backgrounds joined forces to secure power and prestige on what they saw as ...
The Pioneer Woman, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
The Pioneer Woman, Matthew R. Ballard
Much of our understanding of local history in Orleans County comes from the pages of Arad Thomas' Pioneer History of Orleans County and Isaac Signor's Landmarks of Orleans County, the second publication drawing from the chapters of Thomas' publication. In these pages, the pioneer woman rarely makes an appearance and when she does her name is obscured by the significance of her husband.

Martin Luther King, Jr.: Jeffersonian; Champion Of Natural Law Philosophy, 2018 Western Oregon University
Martin Luther King, Jr.: Jeffersonian; Champion Of Natural Law Philosophy, James M. Masnov
Martin Luther King, Jr. is celebrated in mainstream American culture as a champion of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. He is also lauded in the halls of academia for his growing political radicalism prior to his assassination in 1968. Neither view of the man, however, generally acknowledges his deep-rooted political philosophy of Natural Law. This aspect of King, which informed his civic protest, speeches, and political ideology, has been given short shrift in recent decades. While popular culture credits his integrity and intellectuals admire his advocacy for significant reforms in domestic and foreign policy, Martin Luther King, Jr ...

The Impact Of Immigration On Cold War Modernization Efforts: A Case Study Of South Korea, 2018 University of Nebraska at Omaha
The Impact Of Immigration On Cold War Modernization Efforts: A Case Study Of South Korea, Shannon Hayes
Student Research and Creative Activity Fair
This paper explores the intersection of American foreign and domestic policies during the Cold War. The United States sought to foster political and economic alliances in the developing world in the 1950s and 1960s by employing a new foreign policy initiative: modernization theory. Governmental officials and non-state actors carried out these policies in areas of the globe considered the most susceptible to communist influences because of cultural practices and economic realities. However, even while American policymakers sought to modernize political and economic systems, the nation’s own immigration policies may have worked against these efforts. This paper will explore the ...
