Abstract:

With the Federal occupation of New Orleans in 1862, Afro-Creole leaders in that city and their white allies seized upon the ideals of the American and French Revolutions and images of revolutionary events in the French Caribbean and demanded liberte, egalite, fraternite. Rooted in the egalitarianism of the age of democratic revolution, a Catholic universalist ethic, and Romantic philosophy, their republican idealism produced the postwar South's most progressive vision of the future. Caryn Cosse Bell, in her impressive, sweeping study, traces the eighteenth-century origins of this Afro-Creole political and intellectual heritage, its evolution in the antebellum New Orleans, and its impact on the war and Reconstruction, addressing a long-neglected aspect of Louisiana's political history and brilliantly recovering this biracial protest tradition. Covering more than a century and a half, Revolution, Romanticism, and the Afro-Creole Protest Tradition in Louisiana, 1718-1868 makes many fresh connections between the Afro-Creole and American experiences and provides new insight into many ongoing historiographical debates. It also opens anew entire avenues of discussion, including the political impact of masonic universalism, francophone trans-Atlanticism, and the radical republican diaspora of 1848.
