Quest For Glory: The Naval Career Of John A Dahlgren, 1826-1870, Thomas James Legg

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This dissertation is, first and foremost, an account of John Dahlgren's long and often controversial naval career. Beginning with his appointment to the navy in 1826, it details his climb from obscurity to the relative fame and recognition that he enjoyed by the end of his life: first as the noted designer of the distinctive, bottle-shaped Dahlgren gun, which was the navy's primary cannon during the Civil War, and, second, as one of only a few officers to attain the rank of admiral during the Civil War.;Dahlgren's career, both as an ordnance specialist and as a ...

From Critics To Casualties: The National Farmers Union And United States Foreign Policy, 1945-1953, Bruce Edward Field Jan 1994

From Critics To Casualties: The National Farmers Union And United States Foreign Policy, 1945-1953, Bruce Edward Field

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This study chronicles the change in the foreign policy views of the National Farmers Union brought about by U.S. involvement in the Korean War. Abandoning its poignant criticisms of President Truman's earlier Cold War initiatives, the nation's foremost liberal agrarian organization embraced not only American actions in Korea but on a larger scale administration attempts to further what Henry Luce termed the "American Century." This policy reversal created a rift between the national organization and various state and regional branches. The Iowa and Northeastern divisions in particular objected to the shift as a surrender of principle and ...


"A Handsomely Improved Place" : Economic, Social, And Gender-Role Development In A Backcountry Town, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, 1750-1810, Judith A. Ridner Jan 1994

"A Handsomely Improved Place" : Economic, Social, And Gender-Role Development In A Backcountry Town, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, 1750-1810, Judith A. Ridner

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

As a social history of the town and people of Carlisle, Pennsylvania from 1750 to 1810, this dissertation traces the evolution of communal identity in the early American backcountry. By focusing on the growth and development of one urban community, this work details not only how and why one group of backcountry inhabitants took pride in their town's outward accomplishments and material prosperity, but also explains how Carlisle's evolutionary growth prompted the town's people to see themselves as key players in an economic and social universe that stretched far beyond the geographic boundaries of their localized realm ...


Social And Economic Aspects Of Eighteenth-Century Housing On The Northern Neck Of Virginia, Camille Wells Jan 1994

Social And Economic Aspects Of Eighteenth-Century Housing On The Northern Neck Of Virginia, Camille Wells

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This study is an attempt to discern what eighteenth-century houses--their forms, dimensions, internal organization, and external settings--have to contribute to scholarly understanding of colonial Virginia's society, economy, and culture.;Historic Virginia houses usually were built more recently than traditional scholars and popular writers have supposed, and standing eighteenth-century houses are, almost without exception, far larger and finer than the dwellings most colonial Virginians inhabited. Yet even lightly constructed and shabbily finished houses stood at the center of a complex of buildings where most of the planter's household and agricultural work was performed. Thus eighteenth-century Virginia houses were more ...
