Where Is All My Relation? presents the first sustained academic discussion of the poetry, pottery, and culture of David Drake, an antebellum slave who distinguished himself by composing verse on the ceramics he produced in the years leading up to the Civil War. During the 1830s, 40s, and 50s, he incised couplets and signatures (a singular "Dave") onto the incredibly large storage vessels that he made. In fact, his stoneware pots and jars are among the largest made in North America during the antebellum era, and craft enthusiasts and appraisers are still proclaiming their precision and ambitious volume. Rich with biblical allusions, historical facts, and personal opinions, his art provides unique insights into the lives of slaves, craftsmen, and the culture of the American South in the first half of the nineteenth century. The essays here engage with the historical context and major issues that Drake's work provokes, among them: prohibitions against slave literacy; Drake's privileged status compared to other slaves at the time; the interpretive status of his material craft objects; the influence of contemporary African American poet George Moses Horton; and Drake's ability to sell his pottery despite the fact that slaves were not officially permitted to participate in a cash economy. Featuring essays by literary critics, art-historians, archaeologists, and curators, Where Is All My Relation? provides a window into the world of nineteenth century material culture and expands our traditional understanding of the slave-narrative genre.

The Routledge History of the American South looks at the major themes that have developed in the interdisciplinary field of Southern Studies. With fifteen original essays from experts in their respective fields, the handbook addresses such diverse topics as southern linguistics, music (secular and non-secular), gender, food, and history and memory. The chapters present focused historiographical analyses that, taken together, offer a clear sense of the evolution and contours of Southern Studies.

Faith Valor and Devotion

"The nineteenth century was the great age of letter writing, and there is no better guide to how life was lived by the people of that time than their letters. This is eminently true of William Porcher DuBose, a young seminarian, who served unflinchingly as a combat officer and chaplain in the Confederate army from the beginning to the end and later became a highly regarded theologian. These letters, skillfully transcribed, introduced, and annotated, give a rich picture of what `faith, valor, and devotion' meant to the South Carolinians who steadfastly endured as great a sacrifice and suffering as any large group of Americans ever have." Clyde N. Wilson, emeritus distinguished professor of history, University of South Carolina "This edition of the wartime letters of the man who was to become the leading theologian of the Episcopal church records in detail his progress from seminarian to adjutant in Holcombe's Legion, to deacon in the church, to chaplain in the legion. In an impressive editorial collaboration, Emerson and Stokes bring a perfect combination of skill in military analysis and an intimate knowledge of family interconnectivity in South Carolina. Though the letters are often intensely personal---from love-struck bachelor and later devoted husband---they also record daily camp life as well as the legion's engagements in many battles. The introduction provides an excellent background for the man and his letters, and the richly informative endnotes offer supplemental records of battles, troop movements, and family reunions." George W. Williams, author of St. Michael's, Charleston, 1751-1951, and professor emeritus of English, Duke University Brilliant and devout, William Porcher DuBose (1836-1918) considered himself a man of thought rather than of action. During the Civil War, he discovered that he was both, distinguishing himself as an able and courageous Confederate officer in the Holcombe Legion and later as a dedicated chaplain in Kershaw's Brigade. Published for the first time, these previously unknown letters of DuBose chronicle his Civil War actions with these two celebrated South Carolina units and make an important contribution to the literature and history of the war. They also advance our understanding of DuBose, as a Civil War combatant who would later become one of the foremost theologians of the Episcopal Church, and his burgeoning religious ideals. A native of Winnsboro, South Carolina, DuBose was studying to enter the Episcopal priesthood when the war began. After struggling with the question of secular and spiritual obligations, he decided to join in the defense of the Confederacy and began a long and varied career as a soldier. After service in the lowcountry during the first year of the war, he was thrust into the thick of combat in Virginia, where he was wounded twice and taken as a prisoner of war. After being exchanged and returned to duty in 1862, DuBose was wounded again at the battle of Kinston in North Carolina, and a year later influential friends arranged for his appointment as chaplain in Kershaw's Brigade. While this kept him from the front lines, he continued to share in the hazards of combat with the men to whom he ministered as they fought in the battles of Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, and Cedar Creek in 1864. Adroitly edited by W. Eric Emerson and Karen Stokes, the more than 150 letters collected here prove DuBose to be a man of uncompromising duty to his faith, fellows, and the Confederate cause. He references his interactions with prominent figures of the day, including General Nathan "Shanks" Evans, John L. Girardeau, John Johnson, Colonel Peter F. Stevens, General Joseph B. Kershaw, Louisa Cheves McCord, and General John Bratton. Also included here are DuBose's wartime courtship letters to his fiancee and later wife, Anne Peronneau DuBose. Collectively these extraordinary documents illustrate the workings of his mind and heart, devoted to religion and dedicated to service in the Confederate ranks. DuBose's words also offer glimpses into the spiritual ideas he would later develop more fully in his writings as one of the Episcopal Church's leading theologians and as a distinguished professor at the University of the South.

Out of the hundreds of published slave narratives,only a handful exist specific to South Carolina, and most of these are not readily available to modern readers. Edited by Susanna Ashton, this collection restores to print seven slave narratives documenting the lived realities of slavery as it existed across the Palmetto State's upcountry, midlands, and lowcountry, from plantation culture to urban servitude. First published between the late eighteenth century and the dawn of the twentieth, these richly detailed firsthand accounts present a representative cross section of slave experiences, from religious awakenings and artisan apprenticeships to sexual exploitations and harrowing escapes. In their distinctive individual voices, narrators celebrate and mourn the lives of fellow slaves, contemplate the meaning of freedom, and share insights into the social patterns and cultural controls exercised during a turbulent period in American history. Each narrative is preceded by an introduction to place its content and publication history in historical context. The volume also features an afterword surveying other significant slave narratives and related historical documents on South Carolina. I Belong to South Carolina reinserts a chorus of powerful voices of the dispossessed into South Carolina's public history, reminding us of the cruelties of the past and the need for vigilant guardianship of liberty in the present and future.

Elementary Topology: A Combinatorial and Algebraic Approach focuses on the application of algebraic methods to topological concepts and theorems. The publication first elaborates on some examples of surfaces and their classifications. Discussions focus on combinatorial invariants of a surface, combinatorial equivalence, surfaces and their equations, topological surfaces, coordinates on a sphere and torus, and properties of the sphere and torus. The text then examines complex conics and covering surfaces and mappings into the sphere, including applications of the winding number in complex analysis, mappings into the plane, winding number of a plane curve, covering surfaces, and complex conies. The book examines vector fields, network topology, and three-dimensional topology. Topics include topological products and fiber bundles, manifolds of configurations, paths, circuits, and trees, vector fields and hydrodynamics, vector fields on a sphere, and vector fields and differential equations. The publication is highly recommended for sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have completed a year of calculus.
