Daniel Webster Meader("Uncle Web") is a man of few desires. Home, family, and a successful farm are the trinity of his life. And yet his story, as told in part through his own journal entries, is one that evokes much more. Web is a symbol of the self-made man, an earnest and hard-working farmer who struggles to make ends meet even as he finds time to enjoy life's simple pleasures. Author Carol Petts has created a masterpiece- a window in time that reveals both the nature of a man and the spirit of a nation.

The Civil War Correspondence of Rufus Robbins, Private, 7th Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteers

Author: Rufus Robbins

Publisher: U of Nebraska Press

ISBN: 9780803290068

Category: History

Page: 220

This extensive two-way exchange of letters between Rufus Robbins and members of his family provides a highly personalized view of the life of a Union soldier as well as life on the home front in South Abington, Massachusetts. Having enlisted in the Seventh Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment at the seasoned age of thirty-one, Rufus carefully crafted letters that are articulate, graphic, often witty, and that contribute much to our understanding of the daily course of the war. Notes from home reflect the Robbins family?s ever-present worry and concern for Rufus?s well-being. His brothers detail their involvement in the sewing of army boots, an activity for which South Abington held a large contract. In this collection, readers interested in military affairs can learn about the economic workings of the camps, the recreational outlets for the soldiers, and the grim realities of the Peninsula Campaign, while scholars focusing on civilian life will gain a greater understanding of the war's impact on the families and friends left behind.

War Time

An Idea, Its History, Its Consequences

On the surface, "wartime" is a period of time in which a society is at war. But we now live in what President Obama has called "an age without surrender ceremonies," where it is no longer easy to distinguish between times of war and times of peace. In this inventive meditation on war, time, and the law, Mary Dudziak argues that wartime is not as discrete a time period as we like to think. Instead, America has been engaged in some form of ongoing overseas armed conflict for over a century. Meanwhile policy makers and the American public continue to view wars as exceptional events that eventually give way to normal peace times. This has two consequences: first, because war is thought to be exceptional, "wartime" remains a shorthand argument justifying extreme actions like torture and detention without trial; and second, ongoing warfare is enabled by the inattention of the American people. More disconnected than ever from the wars their nation is fighting, public disengagement leaves us without political restraints on the exercise of American war powers.
