Description:

The Northern home-front during the Civil War was far from tranquil. Fierce political debates set communities on edge, spurred secret plots against the Union, and triggered widespread violence. At the heart of all this turmoil stood the anti-war Democrats, nicknamed "Copperheads." Now, Jennifer L. Weber offers the first full-length portrait of this powerful faction to appear in almost half a century. Weber reveals how the Copperheads came perilously close to defeating Lincoln and ending the war in the South's favor. Indeed, by the summer of 1864, they had grown so strong that Lincoln himself thought his defeat was "exceedingly likely." Passionate defenders of civil liberties and states' rights--and often virulent racists--the Copperheads deplored Lincoln's suspension of habeas corpus, his liberal interpretation of the Constitution, and, most vehemently, his moves toward emancipation. Weber reveals how the battle over these issues grew so heated that Northerners feared their neighbors would destroy their livestock, burn their homes, even kill them. And she illuminates the role of Union soldiers, who, furious at Copperhead attacks on the war effort, moved firmly behind Lincoln. The soldiers' support for the embattled president kept him alive politically in his darkest times, and their victories on the battlefield secured his re-election. Packed with sharp observation and fresh interpretations, Copperheads is a gripping account of the fierce dissent that Lincoln called "the fire in the rear."

Description:

The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Social History is the first reference work to eschew a narrow focus on past presidents, intellectuals, military heroes, and other exhaustively studied and well-remembered persons, and instead examine the history of ordinary Americans. The more than 450 entries in the Encyclopedia examine our shared history "from the bottom up," with entries on the way automobiles shaped American lives, the westward movement of settlers and farmers in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the transformation of work over time, the women's suffrage movement, counterculture, leisure activities, consumption patterns, voting habits, population movements, racial divides, and many more fascinating topics intended to help readers develop a richer framework for understanding the social experience of Americans throughout history.

Twelve-year-old Jordan Steel moves with his family from California to the City of Materials in Ohio, where science and technology permeate all aspects of daily life. At his new school, the Roberts Academy, Jordan discovers the secret world of the Robotics Club and the awe-inspiring Robot Wars. Even though underclassmen are rarely allowed to join the Robotics Club and participate in the Robot Wars, Jordan gets in with his new friends, the Silver triplets. They soon forge a team called the Warriors of the Old Republic. Paris is the electronics wiz and Friday is the welding guru. Goldie brings magnetics to life, and Nick is a computer ace. Together, they learn to depend on each other's strengths to build a robot to compete in the Robot Wars. But not everyone wants an underclassman team in the Robot Wars. Jordan and his teammates can't be sure who their real friends are as they try to understand their new school, the secret Robotics Club and their competition. Even darker than some of their competitors' intentions, however, is a secret housed in the halls of the Roberts Academy - a secret that seems drawn to Jordan and his friends.
