Full Duty: Vermonters in the Civil War, Howard Coffin, foreword by Edwin Bearss


9 Full Duty: Vermonters in the Civil War
Howard Coffin, foreword by Edwin Bearss
376 pages, paperback, index, Countryman Press / W.W. Norton & Co., Inc
Coffin's exciting saga, written with the immediacy of a combat correspondent, dramatizes why and how a small, poor, remote Northern state responded so quickly and enthusiastically to President Lincoln's first call to arms in 1861. From the defense of Washington and the siege of Richmond, from Big Bethel to Cedar Creek, we observe the bravery and exploits of Vermont's farm-bred troops who turned the tide in pivotal battles to preserve the Union.
More than 10 percent of Vermont's entire population-34,238 Green Mountain men and boys-served in the war, sustaining one of the largest per capita losses incurred by a Northern state.

Reviews
"Full Duty is that rare Civil War gem; a story that makes that remarkable and tragic war come alive and seem more human. Howard Coffin has done a terrific job." —Ken Burns, documentary filmmaker and author

Each listing includes name of household head, date, town of residence, a biographical note, and a reference to the original source.

Historical Relics of the White Mountains: Also, A Concise White Mountain Guide, John H. Spaulding


11 Historical Relics of the White Mountains: Also, A Concise White Mountain Guide
John H. Spaulding
(1855), 2003, paper, index, 107 pp, Heritage Books
This little volume rescues the historical relics of the White Mountains, anciently named Agiochook, from the twilight of forgetfulness. “All old authentic records agree, that the aborigines unitedly had a peculiar superstitious veneration for these mountains. They considered them the dwelling-place of the invisible One, who, with a motion of his hand, could raise a storm; and accordingly they deemed it pardonless sacrilege to ascend them.” Spaulding opens with the Native American legend of the origin of the White Mountains, followed by an account of the first explorers in 1631, and geographical features. Native lore such as the Indian Ghost, remarkable feats in White Mountain life, notable places like the Tip Top House and daring exploits of fearless adventurers such as Robert Rogers are briefly touched on. Each topic receives very brief consideration, but you can open this book at any page and enjoy an interesting tidbit. A new fullname index has been added to aid researchers.

13 A Tale of New England: The Diaries of Hiram Harwood, Vermont Farmer, 1810-1837
Robert E. Shalhope
320 pages, 5 halftones and 3 line drawings, hardback, Johns Hopkins University Press
The extraordinary diary of Vermont farmer Hiram Harwood-a fourteen-volume record of personal, family, and community events from 1808 to 1837-provides Robert E. Shalhope with the material for this rich microhistory. Harwood's struggle to reach full manhood and assume his position as head of the family, his misgivings about challenging-much less displacing-his father, the changes American life brought to this traditional rite of passage, Hiram's relationships with wife and children, seasonal events, and all the day-to-day experiences of this finally tragic figure make for a fascinating story and provide a highly unusual window into antebellum American life.
Although he focuses mainly on the story of a single farmer, Shalhope also incorporates other stories from this wide-ranging chronicle. Readers glimpse the social, political, economic, and religious life of the entire New England region. Most of all, though, the story of Hiram Harwood reveals the personal price exacted of him by one family's unyielding belief in patriarchy.

About Author
Robert E. Shalhope is George Lynn Cross Professor of History at the University of Oklahoma. He is the author of Sterling Price: Portrait of a Southerner, John Taylor of Caroline: Pastoral Republican, The Roots of Democracy: American Culture and Thought, 1760–1800, and Bennington and the Green Mountain Boys: The Emergency of Liberal Democracy in Vermont, 1760-1850, the last published by Johns Hopkins.

Reviews
"Shalhope's new book skillfully analyzes Hiram Harwood's diaries and quotes them liberally, resulting in what might be called a retroactive autobiography of a Vermont farmer who lived in the 1820s and 1830s."--Tyler Resch, Bennington Banner

"Presents the life of troubled young Harwood, a Bennington, Vermont farmer who struggled to attain his own identity within a restrictive family environment marked by strong patriarchy and family cohesion."--Choice

"With keen and often profound insight, Robert Shalhope recovers and narrates the often comic, but ultimately tragic, life of Hiram Harwood, a Vermont farmer struggling against the expectations of patriarchy. Shalhope explores an extraordinarily rich set of diaries to illuminate the interplay of family conflict, partisan politics, and culture wars—revealing the dark corners of rural life in the early American republic."--Alan Taylor, University of California, Davis

"This fine book will fascinate American historians and general readers alike. Making wonderful use of an extraordinary document, Shalhope gives us a richly detailed account of life in rural Vermont, showing the familial, economic, political, and religious tensions occasioned by the transition from small-scale, diversified family farming to commercial agriculture in New England."--James T. Kloppenberg, Harvard University
