Dissent, Disloyalty, and Subversion in the North during the American Civil War, 1861-1865

I propose to undertake research in the National Archives and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., in federal records and manuscript collections to find documentation on activities of individuals and groups that opposed the actions and policies of the Lincoln administration during the Civil War. I project a monograph challenging the thesis developed by historian Frank L. Klement, who asserted that Democratic Party opponents to the Northern war effort were innocent of Republican charges of disloyalty, treason, and collusion with the Southern rebels.
