  • Filson Historical Society: What Filson's Collections Reveal about Antebellum KY

    April 21, 2021  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

    The New History of the Old South: What the Filson’s Collections Reveal about Antebellum Kentucky

    Professor Christina Snyder researched much of her award-winning book, Great Crossings: Indians, Settlers, and Slaves in the Age of Jackson, at the Filson Historical Society. Great Crossings was an experimental community in Scott County where America’s diverse peoples intersected and articulated new visions of the continent’s future. The town got its name the previous century, when bison habitually crossed Elkhorn Creek at that shallow spot. By the nineteenth century, the bison had disappeared, but Great Crossings became a different kind of meeting ground, home to the first federal Indian school and a famous interracial family. The story of this community reflects, in microcosm, the large-scale forces shaping the continent between the War of 1812 and the Civil War, but the place itself animated some of those changes, profoundly impacting those involved and influencing national policies in the United States and in Indian Country. This talk highlights some of the Filson’s manuscript collections, demonstrating how they enhance our understanding of the antebellum era. 

    Christina Snyder is the McCabe Greer Professor of the American Civil War Era at The Pennsylvania State University. Snyder is the author of Great Crossings: Indians, Settlers, and Slaves in the Age of Jackson(Oxford University Press, 2017) and Slavery in Indian Country: The Changing Face of Captivity in Early America (Harvard University Press, 2010). These books received a wide range of accolades, including the Francis Parkman Prize, the John H. Dunning Prize, the James H. Broussard Prize, and the John C. Ewers Prize. Snyder is also a former Filson Fellow.
