A social history of public life in the national capital during the Civil War and Reconstruction, UNWORTHY OF THE NATION will investigate Washingtonians’ everyday struggles to determine which people would hold which rights—and in which spaces. Challenging received ideas about citizenship and about post-emancipation political culture, it will offer interconnected arguments about the national significance of African Americans’ political activism, the mobilization of anti-democratic politics in the name of progress, and the importance of ideas about public and private space to the redefinition of American democracy following the Civil War.
