Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Diary of a State begins with a recap of the previous year and the growing concerns of the repercussions of John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry. Brown had just been executed and put to rest by the opening of the new decade and the fear of a slave rebellion elsewhere began to concern lawmakers. Arkansas legislators passed laws requiring all free negroes to vacate the state by January 1, 1860. If they refused, they would be brought back into that peculiar institution of slavery. Slavery was a way of life in the South in 1860. It shaped the political battlefield, it shaped the legal system in both the north and the south, and it was the economic engine from which both counterparts would benefit. The slaves on the plantations in the south harvested that same cotton that fed the hungry textile mills in the north. As southern cotton flooded European markets, the demand for the white gold only increased. 1860 was a time of exponential growth in the nation. Arkansas was only a few years old and westward expansion was the watch word. Manifest Destiny was the way of life and the means from which abolitionism took its root. As abolitionism spread across the mid-west, growing concerns were mounting over the future of slavery and its westward expansion. With expansion came lawlessness. As roaming bands of criminals went unchecked, coupled with the ever-growing perceived threat of a slave rebellion, Governor Conway pushed for a revised militia code, which is found at the end of this book in its entirety. A well-regulated militia was the answer Arkansas sought for protection from within and without. As the year progresses, the reader will take notice at the exponential increase in the number of militia units across the state. The year began with only two standing militia units; by the start of hostilities in 1861 there were dozens in place. As Arkansas and surrounding states' newspapers began populating their advertisements with military items for sale, a market was created to supply the increasing demand for personal effects, including custom flags, militia swords, uniforms, drums, and countless other items. Books of military instruction were printed, songs were written, and the state was preparing for a war that had not yet been declared; they were ready to fight an enemy, perceived in heated ideology of nineteenth century politico. That enemy was identified in early 1860 Arkansas newspapers as the elusive underground movement called Abolitionism. Early 1860 was characterized in distrust of the abolitionists because of the terror felt by the southern people from recent national events unfolding in Virginia. Could a slave rebellion erupt in Arkansas? It most certainly could, or so the lawmakers and citizens of the state believed. The militia build up that took place in Arkansas in 1860 was, at the very least, a proverbial flexing of muscles of the Arkansas military prowess. 1860 was a time of progress. Arkansawyers traded in their small one-room cabins for the more spacious dogtrot-style homes, surrounded by gardens and groomed landscapes. As the economy expanded in the Arkansas and Mississippi River valleys, cities expanded and populations increased. With more people came more problems. The education system in 1860 was in a constant state of expansion. Literacy rates were climbing as were the number of privately sponsored schools that dotted the landscape. Military academies were on the increase as well. The reader will find that as early as January, 1860, such an institution was established in Pine Bluff. It was at the Pine Bluff Military Academy that the youngest general in American military history, John Ed Murray, was educated in a classic curriculum. Though many of the authors of these documents have been long-forgotten, this volume will bring back to life those personalities and events that have gone unnoticed over the past one hundred and fifty years.
