    Eulogies for George Washington and Andrew Jackson demonstrate that classical allusions contributed significantly to the development of American nationalism in the early nineteenth century. Although such allusions to ancient Greece and Rome in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American texts have been dismissed by Bernard Bailyn as “window-dressing” or mere rhetorical devices, they provided important models for republican citizenship. Eulogists compared Washington and Jackson to ancient heroes such as Cincinnatus and Julius Caesar to create a set of public values that American presidents and ordinary citizens were expected to emulate. Because of their easy adaptability, classical allusions also could accommodate American Protestant beliefs, the political ideas of Federalists and Jacksonian Democrats, and the notion of American exceptionalism. In addition to the Bible and works of the Enlightenment, the Classics therefore helped define the ideals of citizenship and political culture in the early American Republic

    Authors: Mulders-Jones, Declan;

    Though typically trivialised by historians, the Eaton Affair preoccupied Andrew Jackson throughout his first presidency and lived on in nineteenth-century popular memory. This thesis sets aside dismissive, partisan and elitist scholarship, revisiting the contemporary evidence to demonstrate the Eaton Affair comprised two distinct scandals. In doing so, a heretofore unexamined dissonance between the place of women in mass and elite Jacksonian political cultures is also revealed. The clash of these cultures in the Eaton Affair would shape both for years to come: stigmatising “petticoat government” among the masses while severely curtailing its practice within the informal politicking of Washington.

  • This dissertation provides a scholarly analysis of Rachel Jackson and her partnership with her husband, Andrew, U.S. Major General and president from 1829 to 1837. In tracing Rachel’s life and character, it focuses on her religiosity and its implications for Jackson and his settler war on Indigenous peoples. It argues that Rachel aligned Jackson’s military and political career with her conservative “avenging evangelism," which proved a crucial tool of Jackson’s empire-building. Steeped in frontier violence, Rachel saw Jackson’s warfare against Indigenous peoples, the conquest of their land, and their “removal” to reservations as part of a larger campaign to purge the U.S. of sin and create Zion on earth. This way of thinking (and feeling) justified and accelerated the violent dispossession of Indigenous peoples from southeastern North America during the War of 1812 and Jackson's presidency.

  • Authors: Jeffery Tyler Syck;

    This dissertation examines the origins of American democracy in the political contests between John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson. The project uses these two statesmen's conception of republican government to launch its analysis. Adams wished to save a collapsing republican order by injecting the nation with classical virtue, while Jackson preferred to scrap republicanism altogether and transform America into a majoritarian democracy. This seemingly theoretical debate had a large impact on the early American state. Until this point, the state was used largely to promote commerce and foster regional harmony. Under Jackson, the state started to enforce the political will of a majority of male white voters who happily used their increased power to systematically oppress racial minorities. I argue that this series of events teaches us a great deal about the potential weaknesses in our democratic system and that Adams’ emphasis on public-spirited republicanism could do much to strengthen the best aspects of the American regime.

    Authors: HUSSEY, JAMES THOMAS;

    APPROVED This dissertation provides extensive critical engagement with ideas of individualism in the work of Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864). This largely unexplored area presents a major lacuna in Hawthorne Studies, and this project redresses the absence by drawing together previously disparate strands of research and contextual material on one of the ?American Renaissance?s? most important literary figures. Individualism represents the stance or ideology that emphasises the fundamental moral worth of the individual. For Hawthorne, the individual was a reflexive entity, constantly informed by personal agency, historical and cultural influences, and a dynamic engagement with society. This analysis reconstitutes our understanding of Hawthorne?s texts by examining his characters and literary career, respectively, as clear evidence of the author?s exploration of American individualism. In looking at Hawthorne?s oeuvre from the perspective of his political, religious and artistic personae, this work presents the author as a product of his Jacksonian milieu, highlighting the importance of Democratic culture to a broader comprehension of this writer?s literature. Fundamentally, this dissertation grounds Hawthorne in his time, moving away from critiques of his work that rely too heavily on constructed ideas of familial guilt and an image of the author as a Puritan-obsessed, isolated figure. The Hawthorne presented by this analysis is indelibly connected to the trials and tribulations of his era, keenly aware of the machinations of politics and culture, and consistently reactive to the changing status of authorship throughout the Jacksonian and antebellum periods. This broad-ranging analysis includes much of Hawthorne?s fiction, non-fiction and correspondence in order to provide a rounded examination of the formative influence of individualism upon his work, and, indeed, in his development as an American citizen.

    This thesis details an extensive but not uncommon land fraud scheme that was discovered by Andrew Jackson in the years just after Tennessee’s admission to the Union in 1796. Jackson’s emergence on the Tennessee political scene began as a Nashville judge when he exposed a scheme in which bounty grants for North Carolina’s revolutionary war veterans were being forged for residents around Nashville by land agents working for North Carolina Secretary of State, James Glasgow. Jackson’s exposure challenged many of Tennessee’s leading men, such as former state of Franklin and Tennessee governor, John Sevier. Jackson’s exposure of the the Glasgow Land Fraud helped facilitate his rise to power and thus - as some might say - the origins of America’s democratic tradition.

    Authors: Dupuis-Déri, Francis;

    Le populisme est souvent associé à la revalorisation de la démocratie et même du pouvoir du peuple par des aspirants chefs charismatiques qui prétendent libérer ce peuple du contrôle d’une élite. Or, un retour dans l’histoire des États-Unis révèle qu’Andrew Jackson est non seulement le premier président populiste, mais aussi le premier à s’être prétendu « démocrate » et à avoir associé les élections à la démocratie. La discussion propose de rappeler l’histoire de l’émergence des rhétoriques populiste et démocratique, dans le cadre de luttes électorales pour le pouvoir, et suggère que les forces progressistes ne devraient pas tant développer un « populisme de gauche » que revenir au sens originel du mot « démocratie », à savoir le pouvoir directement exercé du peuple, par le peuple, pour le peuple. C’est ce que proposent d’ailleurs des mouvements sociaux contemporains, qui pratiquent les assemblées délibératives à l’agora. Populism is often associated with the revalorization of the democracy and even of people power by aspiring and charismatic leaders that purport to free these people from elite control. And yet, to return to this aspect of United States history reveals that Andrew Jackson is not only the first populist president, but also the first “democrat” to associate the elections with democracy. The discussion historically retraces the emergence of populist and democratic rhetoric within the context of electoral struggles for power, and suggests that progressive forces need not necessarily develop a “leftist populism” rather than return to the original meaning of the word “democracy,” that is, the direct power exerted on the people, by the people, for the people. This is what is otherwise proposed by contemporary social movements practicing public deliberative assemblies.

  • This dissertation examines the partisan divisions within South Carolina during the nullification crisis. In November 1832, a state convention issued the Ordinance of Nullification, declaring two protective tariffs unconstitutional and threatening to secede if the federal government tried to enforce them. Twenty-five thousand men volunteered to defend the state against federal "tyranny." Another 9,000 South Carolinians, however, vowed to fight against their own neighbors to preserve the Union. Previous scholars have insightfully analyzed the state's Nullifiers, but they have devoted much less attention to the Union men who resisted nullification. For decades, these Union men had viewed America as a fragile experiment in self-government--the "last hope of human liberty." Now, as liberal revolutions faltered in Europe, the crisis in South Carolina seemed to take on global significance. Union men feared that their country might fail at the very moment the world needed its example the most. Fueled by these convictions, they rallied to avert civil war and save the Union--and the cause of liberty--from destruction.

  • History is full of surprises. And quite often military figures and politicians have to make compromises. Such a compromise was the agreement of General Andrew Jackson with the pirate Jean Laffite and his men for the defense of New Orleans, a key city at the mouth of the Mississippi River, which was threatened with capture by the British during the Anglo-American War of 1812–1815. This little-known episode of American history is extracted from a new book being prepared for publication. История полна неожиданностей. И довольно часто военным деятелям и политикам приходится идти на компромиссы. Таким компромиссом стало соглашение генерала Эндрю Джексона с пиратом Жаном Лафитом и его людьми для обороны Нового Орлеана, ключевого города в устье реки Миссисипи, которому угрожал захват англичанами в ходе англо-американской войны 1812–1815 гг. Об этом малоизвестном эпизоде американской истории рассказывается в данном эпизоде из готовящейся к печати новой книги.

Because of their easy adaptability, classical allusions also could accommodate American Protestant beliefs, the political ideas of Federalists and Jacksonian Democrats, and the notion of American exceptionalism. In addition to the Bible and works of the Enlightenment, the Classics therefore helped define the ideals of citizenship and political culture in the early American Republic

    Authors: Mulders-Jones, Declan;

    Though typically trivialised by historians, the Eaton Affair preoccupied Andrew Jackson throughout his first presidency and lived on in nineteenth-century popular memory. This thesis sets aside dismissive, partisan and elitist scholarship, revisiting the contemporary evidence to demonstrate the Eaton Affair comprised two distinct scandals. In doing so, a heretofore unexamined dissonance between the place of women in mass and elite Jacksonian political cultures is also revealed. The clash of these cultures in the Eaton Affair would shape both for years to come: stigmatising “petticoat government” among the masses while severely curtailing its practice within the informal politicking of Washington.

  • This dissertation provides a scholarly analysis of Rachel Jackson and her partnership with her husband, Andrew, U.S. Major General and president from 1829 to 1837. In tracing Rachel’s life and character, it focuses on her religiosity and its implications for Jackson and his settler war on Indigenous peoples. It argues that Rachel aligned Jackson’s military and political career with her conservative “avenging evangelism," which proved a crucial tool of Jackson’s empire-building. Steeped in frontier violence, Rachel saw Jackson’s warfare against Indigenous peoples, the conquest of their land, and their “removal” to reservations as part of a larger campaign to purge the U.S. of sin and create Zion on earth. This way of thinking (and feeling) justified and accelerated the violent dispossession of Indigenous peoples from southeastern North America during the War of 1812 and Jackson's presidency.

  • Authors: Jeffery Tyler Syck;

    This dissertation examines the origins of American democracy in the political contests between John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson. The project uses these two statesmen's conception of republican government to launch its analysis. Adams wished to save a collapsing republican order by injecting the nation with classical virtue, while Jackson preferred to scrap republicanism altogether and transform America into a majoritarian democracy. This seemingly theoretical debate had a large impact on the early American state. Until this point, the state was used largely to promote commerce and foster regional harmony. Under Jackson, the state started to enforce the political will of a majority of male white voters who happily used their increased power to systematically oppress racial minorities. I argue that this series of events teaches us a great deal about the potential weaknesses in our democratic system and that Adams’ emphasis on public-spirited republicanism could do much to strengthen the best aspects of the American regime.

    Authors: HUSSEY, JAMES THOMAS;

    APPROVED This dissertation provides extensive critical engagement with ideas of individualism in the work of Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864). This largely unexplored area presents a major lacuna in Hawthorne Studies, and this project redresses the absence by drawing together previously disparate strands of research and contextual material on one of the ?American Renaissance?s? most important literary figures. Individualism represents the stance or ideology that emphasises the fundamental moral worth of the individual. For Hawthorne, the individual was a reflexive entity, constantly informed by personal agency, historical and cultural influences, and a dynamic engagement with society. This analysis reconstitutes our understanding of Hawthorne?s texts by examining his characters and literary career, respectively, as clear evidence of the author?s exploration of American individualism. In looking at Hawthorne?s oeuvre from the perspective of his political, religious and artistic personae, this work presents the author as a product of his Jacksonian milieu, highlighting the importance of Democratic culture to a broader comprehension of this writer?s literature. Fundamentally, this dissertation grounds Hawthorne in his time, moving away from critiques of his work that rely too heavily on constructed ideas of familial guilt and an image of the author as a Puritan-obsessed, isolated figure. The Hawthorne presented by this analysis is indelibly connected to the trials and tribulations of his era, keenly aware of the machinations of politics and culture, and consistently reactive to the changing status of authorship throughout the Jacksonian and antebellum periods. This broad-ranging analysis includes much of Hawthorne?s fiction, non-fiction and correspondence in order to provide a rounded examination of the formative influence of individualism upon his work, and, indeed, in his development as an American citizen.

    This thesis details an extensive but not uncommon land fraud scheme that was discovered by Andrew Jackson in the years just after Tennessee’s admission to the Union in 1796. Jackson’s emergence on the Tennessee political scene began as a Nashville judge when he exposed a scheme in which bounty grants for North Carolina’s revolutionary war veterans were being forged for residents around Nashville by land agents working for North Carolina Secretary of State, James Glasgow. Jackson’s exposure challenged many of Tennessee’s leading men, such as former state of Franklin and Tennessee governor, John Sevier. Jackson’s exposure of the the Glasgow Land Fraud helped facilitate his rise to power and thus - as some might say - the origins of America’s democratic tradition.
