Timothy Dwight Encounters The Indians: Greenfield Hill And Travels Through New York And New England, Ann Brunjes Jun 2010

Timothy Dwight Encounters The Indians: Greenfield Hill And Travels Through New York And New England, Ann Brunjes

Bridgewater Review

Late eighteenth and early nineteenth-century Americans, much like twenty-first-century Americans, had a hard time imagining how a heterogeneous, mobile and growing population could be brought under one ideological and governmental roof. And for many prominent Americans in the early days of the nation, the lingering issue of the “Indian problem” posed its own peculiar challenges. Timothy Dwight (1752–1817), author, President of Yale College, and minister of the town of Greenfield, Connecticut. Dwight voiced his concerns through a variety of genres, including the pastoral-epic poem, Greenfield Hill (1794), and Travels in New England and New York (1822).


A Not-Too-Distant Mirror: The Talcott Commission (1840-43) And The Meaning Of The Border, Andrew C. Holman Jun 2010

A Not-Too-Distant Mirror: The Talcott Commission (1840-43) And The Meaning Of The Border, Andrew C. Holman

Bridgewater Review

“Who we are” has always been defined in part by “who we’re not,” and who we’re not is often symbolized by our borders. America’s edges, its international borders, have become a critical focus of identity politics and border security - keeping out Mexican migrants, Canadian drug smugglers and other fiends - grist for the Sunday morning news show mills. However, today’s Fortress America is hardly new; students who examine America’s mid-nineteenth-century rush to solidify its national borders would find that their ancestors made a similar equation. The ways they defined their borders reflected the ways they defined ...

The Elephant And The Mouse: Canada And The United States, John F. Myers, Mary H. Myers Dec 1985

The Elephant And The Mouse: Canada And The United States, John F. Myers, Mary H. Myers

Bridgewater Review

Throughout their history, Canadians have been constantly aware of the Republic to the South. In 1775 the American Revolution spilled over into Canada as the Americans seized Montreal and tried to capture Quebec City. During the War of 1812 Canada received the brunt of American hostility toward Britain, being invaded by the United States at various points along the border, particularly along the New York State frontier. Although successful in repelling the Americans, Canada became very sensitive to her own weakness as contrasted to the growing power of the United States.

Cultural Commentary: Joseph Mccarthy And The Red Scare, David Culver Jul 1984

Cultural Commentary: Joseph Mccarthy And The Red Scare, David Culver

Bridgewater Review

Exactly thirty years ago millions of Americans were fascinated by a day-time TV drama featuring the Republican Senator from Wisconsin, Joseph McCarthy. The Army-McCarthy hearings, called by one writer, “the greatest political show on earth,” were televised by ABC from April 22 to June 17, 1954. For many it was the first opportunity to see the Senator whose name epitomized militant anti-Communism and who since 1950 had attracted more attention than the President of the United States. Few viewers could know, however, that TV's exposure would help destroy McCarthy’s political career and lead to his censure by the ...

Pearl Harbor: Did Fdr Know?, David M. Culver

Bridgewater Review

At precisely 7:55 a.m., Sunday, December 7, 1941, the Japanese launched a devastating air attack on Hawaii, leaving 2403 Americans dead, eight battleships crippled or destroyed, and 188 planes demolished. “The worse disaster in the military annals of the United States,” in the words of a noted historian, plunged America into a global war and permanently changed the country. Isolationism was dead. Americans were united to win the war, and they were resolved never again to be caught by surprise. At the same time, they wanted to know why the Army and Navy were caught napping. Thus began ...


Myth And The Lincoln Assassination: Did John Wilkes Booth Escape?, Thomas Turner May 1982

Myth And The Lincoln Assassination: Did John Wilkes Booth Escape?, Thomas Turner

Bridgewater Review

The assassination of Abraham Lincoln, like most American assassinations, is surrounded by myth and legend. Unfortunately, there have been so many conspiracy theories created over a hundred-year period that it is now very difficult to separate fact from fiction. It is not always readily apparent why there should exist so many misconceptions concerning Lincoln's death since the events themselves appear to be rather simple.
