In the Fall 2013 issue of Common-place, Dwight Pitcaithley and Marie Tyler-McGraw tell the story of the Lemmon Case—a trial dealing with states’ rights and slavery far less famous than the Dred Scott case, but that held the potential to more completely overturn the Constitutional order in the years before the Civil War. Lara Langer Cohen offers a glimpse into the oddly conformist teenage subculture of nineteenth-century amateur newspaper publishing. Cybele Gontar charts the history of the production of abolitionist textiles in France, and Zara Anishanslin gives notes on a manual for raising silkworms. All this, along with the latest reviews, poetry, and more, can be found in the new issue, available www.common-place.org.
