1803 Thomas Jefferson Notes on State of Virginia Slavery Colonial Americana MAP"I cannot live without books." ― Thomas JeffersonThomas Jefferson's 'Notes on the State of Virginia' was his written response to various questions he had been asked about Virginia by French secretary Francois Barbe-Marbois. This book is regularly considered the most important American book published before 1800 (Bernstein). This book is important for many reasons, but it gives insight to Jefferson's views on slavery, important laws, powers given to the people and the government, as well as how to exhaust resources reserved for the military. This book instilled fear in many slave owners, out of fear that their 'property' would be taken from them and that an emancipation would become imminent. In addition to the more controversial topics, Jefferson discussed the geography and topography of Virginia, religious views of Colonial America, and important state-papers. This 1803 was the first edition that included an appendix relating t ... Read more

1874 1ed General Joseph E Johnston Civil War Narrative Confederate CSA Military Joseph E. Johnston was a 19th-century American Army officer who served as a Confederate States Army general, even though he trained at West Point. However, his military acumen was wrecked and constantly criticized by Confederate President Jefferson Davis – with whom Johnston was very displeased. Following his service time as a military officer, Johnston wrote and published his own memoirs – memoirs which were mostly attacks on President Davis and other officers, as well as defending his own actions and decisions during the Civil War. 'In Tall Cotton' says of this work: "A vigorous defense of his own actions and necessarily, therefore, a hard-hitting attack on others, particularly on President Davis against whom he records his objections to excess." According to Nevins, this work is "one of the earliest Confederate reminiscences; strongly partisan, anti-Davis, and defensive in tone." Per Eicher, "This is one of the early ... Read more
