Abstract

historiography of nineteenth-century conservatism, initiated by scholars like Michael F. Conlin and Matthew Mason, in a rigorous and reasoned way—by synthesizing the conservative disposition with the antislavery impulse. This may not be the story of emancipation many historians want, but it is the one we get when everyone is seen as conservative. Joshua A. Lynn joshua a . lynn is an assistant professor of history at Eastern Kentucky University and the author of the forthcoming Preserving the White Man’s Republic: Jacksonian Democracy, Race, and the Transformation of American Conservatism (University of Virginia Press).
