Mourning Lincoln (Book) [show prizes]
Title: Mourning Lincoln
Author: Martha Hodes
Abstract: Through deep exploration of diaries, letters, and other personal writings of everyday people -- northerners and southerners, soldiers and civilians, black people and white, men and women, rich and poor -- penned during the spring and summer of 1865, Martha Hodes captures the full range of reactions to the president’s death. Hodes brings to life a key moment of national uncertainty and confusion, when competing visions of America’s future proved irreconcilable and hopes for racial justice in the aftermath of the Civil War slipped from the nation’s grasp.

Childhood from the 19th Century to Today, on Radio Times (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Childhood from the 19th Century to Today, on Radio Times
Writer: Lenore Skenazy
Writer: Jon Grinspan
Director: Marty Moss-Coane
Producer: WHYY
Abstract: Childhood today is often carefully choreographed. Structure, safety and control are just some of the hallmarks of modern American parenting. The focus is on reining in children, rather than letting them run amok. But kids in the 19th century were a very different breed, according to historian Jon Grinspan. Assertive, rebellious and freewheeling, these young scamps roamed free in gangs, getting into fights, building bonfires and attacking small animals. We compare childhood then and now, with Jon Grinspan, a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow at the Massachusetts Historical Society and Lenore Skenazy, author of Free-Range Kids: How to Raise Safe, Self-Reliant Children (Without Going Nuts with Worry).

Judgment at Washington: Henry Wirz, Legacies, and the Ends of War (Film/TV/Video Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Judgment at Washington: Henry Wirz, Legacies, and the Ends of War
Writer: Michael Vorenberg
Producer: C-SPAN
Abstract: Michael Vorenberg talked about the legacy of Confederate Captain Henry Wirz, who was in charge of the Andersonville Prison Camp from March 1864 to his arrest in May 1865 for war crimes. Professor Vorenberg argued that Mr. Wirz’s trial was framed within the context of slavery but the memory of his trial and execution has changed as historians view it through the lens of 20th century events. “Judgment at Washington: Lew Wallace, Henry Wirz, and the Elusive Quest to End the Civil War” was part of the U.S. Capitol Historical Society 2014 Spring Conference “A Just and Lasting Peace: Ending the Civil War", held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. It was the eleventh symposium in the series, "The National Capitol in a Nation Divided: Congress and the District of Columbia Confront Sectionalism and Slavery.”
