Monday, October 3, y Jour 413 Notes Civil War Era SUMMARY The civil war era consists of the Whig collapse as well as many papers that were liberal against  slavery. Some of the papers many of the southern states were offended and actually wanted  those papers to be eradicated. It is said that the inverted pyramid was created during this time  period. The byline was also used because the general at the time was trying to stop the  bloodshed from the civil war.  Uncle Tom’s Cabin ­ regarded as one of the most read pieces ever! ­ Written by Harriet Beecher Stowe. Abraham Lincoln wrote to her stating that this  book was the reason why the war started, it really did cause extra tension between  pro and anti­slavery states.  The Whig Collapse ­ 1852 ­ I 1856 the third party system was created and it was now only two parties: The  Republicans vs. the Democrats.  John c. Frémont 1856 ­ He was the first republican presidential candidate. He was called “The Pathfinder of  the west”. ­ He supported from free­sailers and anti­slavery advocates. He didn’t want slavery to  extend to the west farther than it already had. The press coverage resembled a  typical American.  Elijah Parish Lovejoy 1802-1837 ­ He set up his fourth and final press in Illinois and this news was reported by the Alton  Observer on November 7 1837. He was killed when the mob came by.  1 Monday, October 3, y John Brown ­ This guy accomplished nothing in his life until Lovejoy died. He vowed to end slavery  because of his death and ended up getting hanged. ­ He went to Kansas in the 1850’s and goes into hiding because he is a wanted man.  He sets up a plan for the revolution and plans to go to Harper’s Ferry he and 27 other followers were either captured or killed. ­ After John Brown was executed Frederick Douglas said “I could live for the slave, he  could die for him” ­ Later, transcendentalists like Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote about him as if he was  Jesus.  The Liberator ­ William Lloyd Garrison in 1859 finally wrote that everything that happened was enough.  Abraham Lincoln ­ He was not well received well when he was elected. Only 40% of the electorate voted for him. Horace Greeley was a big supporter of him. The Press during the civil war ­ No war was ever covered so thoroughly by eyewitnesses. Newspapers turned over  almost all editorial spaces to war coverage. ­ Technology aided in reporting and practically everyone could have been a journalist.  The Inverted Pyramid and the Byline ­ This was created because spies would intercept telegraphic transmissions and were  able to decode strategic information. This was used during the Civil war regularly.  Bylines don't come by until after the civil war. Bylines are used because at the time  the general was trying to stop bloodshed. By putting your name down it would allow  the law to properly prosecute the murderer.  2 Monday, October 3, y William T. Sherman ­ A general that was never very fond of Abraham Lincoln or Horace Greeley. He  thought that Greeley was committing treason.  ­ He also stared the Modern War and decided to go and cause destruction and peril in  the south.  Lincoln & The Press ­ The North was losing greatly during the war. Lincoln was held responsible. Everyone  thought that the Emancipation Proclamation was the single worse thing that Lincoln  had done during his presidency. It wasn’t until they claimed Georgia that everyone  approved of it.  Greeley & Lincoln  ­ He wrote the most famous editorial in August 20th, 1862 called “The Prayer of 20 Millions”.  His story said that he should just fight for ending slavery instead of trying to change the union. ­ Lincoln had already written the emancipation proclamation during that summer.  ­ September 17 that year in Antietam, the north finally won. Lincoln was waiting for a victory to  allow the emancipation to be put into action.  ­ The emancipation proclamation took effect on January 1st, 1863. ­ This was also known as the second American Revolution.  ­ Gettysburg Adress ­ November 19, 1863 ­ He steps up and gives a speech at Gettysburg which was a commemoration of the dead  at this place. ­ Lincoln gave a 2 minute speech and it went by so quickly that no one has very good  accounts of the speech.   ­ “Fourscore and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth up on this continent a new  nation conceived in liberty and dedicated t the proposition that all men are read equal” Civil War Era Images ­ Harper’s Weekly sketch artist was Alfred Waud at Gettysburg. This guy would draw a  sketch of what was happening in the war and then the paper would have a  metaphysical blend of the war using wood cuts and photographs.  3 Monday, October 3, y The World’s First Photograph was the Heliograph ­ Joseph Nicéphore Niépce 1822 ­ This is called a Heliograph because it was created by the sun. The sun’s rays  would cause reactions on the chemicals and that would create an image.  Daguerreotype ­ Louise Jacques Dagueere 1837 “Boulevard du Temple” Daguerre, cerca 1838­39 ­ this was the first photograph of a person. The exposure time was more than 10 minutes.  Anything moving would not be caught.  Mathew Brady ­ He helped produce photography and share them with a national audience.  4
