Arguing for the significance of the aural measurement of historical past, Mark M. Smith contends that to appreciate what it intended to be northern or southern, slave or free--to comprehend sectionalism and the attitudes towards modernity that ended in the Civil War--we needs to examine how antebellum american citizens comprehended the sounds and silences they heard.

Smith explores how northerners and southerners perceived the sounds linked to antebellum advancements together with the industry revolution, industrialization, westward growth, and abolitionism. In northern modernization, southern slaveholders heard the noise of the mob, the din of industrialism, and threats to what they thought of their quiet, orderly lifestyle; in southern slavery, northern abolitionists and capitalists heard the screams of enslaved exertions, the silence of oppression, and signs of premodernity that threatened their imaginative and prescient of the yank destiny. Sectional awareness was once profoundly encouraged via the sounds humans attributed to their areas. And as sectionalism hardened into fierce antagonism, it propelled the country towards its such a lot earsplitting clash, the Civil War.
