Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Winter 2014) 300, at least, left as mariners or servants to officers; still others fled into Spanish Florida as maroons. Together with Gene A. Smith's more tightly focused but equally rich The Slaves' Gamble: Choosing Sides in the War of 1812,2 Taylor demonstrates that most previous scholars have been too quick to emphasize postwar Virginia nationalism. Even before the Missouri debates prompted Chesapeake politicians to recommit to unfree labor, their fury at the British and their anger at their internal enemies led to what was at best a limited, racialized nationalism. Do ugla s R. Ege rton is professor of history at Le Moyne College. His books include Death or Liberty: African Americans and Revolutionary America (New York, 2009) and The Wars of Reconstruction: The Brief, Violent History of America's Most Democratic Era (New York, 2014). The Papers of Andrew Jackson, Volume IX (1831). Edited by Daniel Feller. Laura Eve-Moss, Thomas Coens, and Erik B. Alexander, Associate Editors. (Knoxville: University of Tennessee Press, 2013.
