DeBow's Review was a magazine with a broad circulation in the American South throughout the middle years of the 19th century. The magazine was fervently pro-slavery and increasingly secessionist in the years preceding the outbreak of the Civil War, going so far as to publish an 1850s article advocating the resumption of the African slave trade. The magazine is catalogued from its first edition in January 1846 through to 1869 as part of the University of Michigan 'Making of America' collection. As a resource which offers an insight into the values of the higher classes of the Antebellum South, DeBow's Review is a valuable asset to historians of the civil war period. It was edited by William M Burwell in the late 1860s and 1870s.
