Andrew Zimmerman’s book project highlights the decisive role played by black and white revolutionaries in the American Civil War. Departing from accounts centered on national elites, it shows how transnational plebeian political cultures, particularly African-American conjure and German-American communism, turned a war for the Union into a revolution against slavery.
