Abstract

JOURNAL OF THE EARLY REPUBLIC (Fall 2017) remains for other scholars to recover the particular transatlantic publishing histories of American-authored works and to consider how—or if— transatlantic address shaped them at the level of aesthetics. Me liss a J. Hom este ad is professor of English at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. She is author of American Women Authors and Literary Property (New York, 2005), and has published on Catharine Maria Sedgwick in transatlantic contexts. War of Two: Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, and the Duel That Stunned the Nation. By John Sedgwick. (New York: Berkley Books, 2015. Pp. 455. Cloth, $27.95.) Aaron Burr in Exile: A Pariah in Paris, 1810–1811. By Jane Merrill and John Endecott. (Jefferson, NC: McFarland & Company, 2016. Pp. 235. Paper, $39.95.) Reviewed by Suzanne Geissler John Sedgwick is a journalist and a descendant of Theodore Sedgwick, an early national politician who was friend to both Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. It was while going through his ancestor’s papers that Sedgwick’s interest in their duel was sparked, but alas, Sedgwick is out of his depth in attempting to explain what is not only the most famous duel in American history but also the most puzzling.
