Re: How an 1843 Will Shaped the Lives of Two Civil War Spies

Dear Dave,

Your thoughts about "scripted performance" underscore the question of how white Southerners (particularly elites) conceived of "public selves" in the period leading up to and then during the war. I think you've given me a topic for a future post: the pro-Union underground in Richmond depended for its success on how both black and white Southerners could deploy their expected "public selves" in ways that undermined the Confederacy.

Re: Kentucky Ratifies the 19th Amendment

This post is a reply to one of the entries on the KWSP Timeline. Kentucky was the 24th state to ratify the "Susan B. Anthony" Amendment - not the 23rd as has been stated in several reputable sources. Rhode Island's legislature had also met on its opening day on January 6, 1920, and passed the ratification resolution in both houses soon after 1 p.m. Kentucky's legislature did not finalize its resolution until just after 4 p.m. the same day.
