Review:

The journals and diaries of John M. Roberts provide an intimate view of the life and thoughts of an articulate young schoolmaster, miller, itinerant bookseller, and farmer in a rural area of central Ohio in a time of rising sectional crisis and Civil War. Touching on many aspects of family and neighborhood activities unfamiliar to present-day Americans, such as singing schools and debates in candlelit schoolhouses, camp meeting revels, Gypsy fortune tellers, and nighttime sleigh races, they help restore our memory of country and village life. Roberts' diaries record his politics, his hatred of abolitionists and secessionists, and his confusions about the Rebellion. He denounces "aristocrats" and praises ordinary folk, though he enjoys ridiculing their superstitions and mimicking their speech. Scholars interested in family and community life, racial bigotry, women's status, framing and milling, local politics, and folklore and the American dialect will find a rich resource in Buckeye Schoolmaster: A Chronicle of Midwestern Rural Life, 1853-1865. -- Midwest Book Review
