Day 2 – Goals, goals, goals

Today: I want to get through the section on manhood and work, and I would LOVE to get through the section on manhood and citizenship. Then that leaves the historiography of civil rights and citizenship to slog through so that I can make clear the distinction between civil and political rights that the members of Congress are making. But, that is for another day. Today, I need to write about the ways that work, economic freedom to contract, and property ownership are central to ideas about manhood in the 19th century.

Goal: 1. Manhood /Work completed, 2. Manhood & citizenship begun.
