A Common Thread: Labor, Politics, And Capital Mobility In The Massachusetts Textile Industry, 1880-1934, Beth Anne English Jan 2003

A Common Thread: Labor, Politics, And Capital Mobility In The Massachusetts Textile Industry, 1880-1934, Beth Anne English

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

"A Common Thread" is an analysis of the relocation of the New England textile industry to the states of the Piedmont South between 1880 and 1934. Competition from textile mills operating in the South became a serious challenge for New England textile manufacturers as early as the 1890s. as they watched their profits turn into losses while output and sales of southern goods continued apace during the 1893 depression, owners of northern textile corporations felt unfairly constrained by state legislation that established age and hours standards for mill employees, and by actual and potential labor militancy in their mills. Several ...

The Flower And Rabble Of Essex County: A Social History Of The Massachusetts Bay Militia And Militiamen During King Philip's War, 1675-1676, Kyle Forbes Zelner

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This study examines the process of recruitment and the social makeup of militiamen in seventeenth-century New England. King Philip's War, 1675--1676, was the first major military crisis the Massachusetts Bay Colony faced. The government responded by impressing over a thousand men, employing a recruitment system that evolved from the colony's founding in the 1630s. The Massachusetts militia system was a hybrid of the English militia with additional safeguards. The founders of Massachusetts believed the English militia of the 1620s overly nationalistic, at the expense of local control. Thus, the Massachusetts system was created to be centralized in command ...

Washington In Glory, America In Tears: The Nation Mourns The Death Of George Washington, 1799-1800, Gerald Edward Kahler

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

The sudden death of George Washington at his home at Mount Vernon, Virginia, on December 14, 1799, plunged America into a prolonged period of national mourning. It is the central argument of this study that, although often overlooked by historians, the national mourning for George Washington from December 14, 1799 through February 22, 1800, represented a major event in the civic culture of the Early Republic that consolidated and crystallized the image of Washington and shaped him into an enduring symbol of the nation that was to become central to the American memory. The study compiles a comprehensive history of ...

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

During the seventeenth century, Spanish conquerors established Franciscan missions among the native inhabitants of Florida and New Mexico. The missionaries in the northern frontier doctrinas of Spain's New World empire adapted methods tested in Iberia and Central and South America to conditions among the Guales, Timucuas, Apalaches, and the various Pueblo peoples. The mission Indians of Florida and New Mexico responded to conquest and conversion in myriad ways. They incorporated Spaniards in traditional ways, they attempted to repel the interlopers, they joined the newcomers and accepted novel modes of behavior, they discriminated between which foreign concepts to adopt and ...
