Its basic principles were regeneration and renovation and they were inextricably linked with the recovery of a Catalan national identity lost in the past. Catalonia demanded the right to cultural as well as political autonomy and this automatically affects its relationship with the rest of the country. The main event of this process is the reinstatement in of the Jocs Florals popular poetry competitions in Catalan, not dissimilar in nature to the Welsh tradition of the Eisteddfod , which used to be celebrated in the Middle Ages.

Even though these first Jocs took place in Barcelona, soon they started to be celebrated all over Catalonia and later adopted in Castilian in the rest of Spain. Also, as a direct consequence of these, the linguistic debate was rekindled between those who regarded Catalan as a dead language and those who believed that it was capable of expressing everything the modern mind was capable of envisaging. As far as the Catalans were concerned, the popularity of the Jocs Florals , together with the quality of what was being produced, served as conclusive proof of the existence of a distinct Catalan literature and of a language suitably equipped for literary use.

Catalan writers were divided between a few who were prepared to write in Castilian and thus compromise, and those who refused to give in, regarding the former with contempt. At this time the Modernistes established the guiding pattern for the new Catalan conscience by looking for "things modern"; that is, forgetting all the folklore and adopting instead new ideas relating to the life-style and philosophy espoused by the progressive Bourgeoisie elsewhere on the Continent.

This constituted the first conscious decision to place Catalan culture in a European context. This emphasis on difference made intellectual contact with Castilian writers virtually impossible. Nonetheless, it was recognized that, for Catalan literature to be on a par with other European literatures, grammatical idiosyncrasies needed to be ironed out.

This pressing need was what prompted for the first time the commission of much needed grammatical and linguistic studies and the corresponding award of greater social stature to the professional writer. Modernista vitality, however, was not endless; the combination of modernity and Catalan nationalism was unstable and could not last.

By the ideological basis of the movement had been diluted and taken over by political concerns and its aims were no longer clear. However, form the political rearrangement that followed there emerged Noucentisme , the very first cultural movement to become part of the political party in charge: la Lliga. It was the Noucentistes who provided the three fundamental pillars for Catalan culture:.

It is interesting to note, however, that as stated by A.

Thus, when the Second Republic was declared in the same group of Catalan intellectuals, some Noucentistes and their successors, the Catalan republicans, took charge of the recovery of sovereignty. However, even though the Second Republic was considered as an opportunity for united prosperity and even though it could not create a stable government given the clear areas of difference between Catalan republicans and republicans from elsewhere , it nevertheless provided a fertile ground for the recovery and consolidation of Catalan letters which during those years saw a great resurgence, being duly promoted and recognised abroad.

All this background information allows us to evaluate the difference of the impact that the banning of the natural language had in , and, finally in It will also help explain the reluctance with which Catalan writers responded to such an imposition and the strength and determination to preserve their national identity, with or without their natural language, against all odds, in the fervent hope that the day would come when their attempts to preserve and defend it would prove triumphant. Indeed, by repressing the Catalan language, it was his aim to perpetrate cultural genocide against Catalonia, the idea being brutal in its simplicity: if a nation has a soul and the organ of expression of such soul is its language, by eliminating the language you effectively kill the nation.

The Supreme Court Case That Enshrined White Supremacy in Law

The imposition of Spanish as the only official language meant the erosion of difference; and the Catalans perceived it as a direct threat to their collective conscience. In addition, the instinct of self-preservation discouraged any Catalano-Spanish contacts for the best part of the period during which censorship was at its height. While the Spanish Civil War lasted, there was a good rapport between Catalan writers and Republican writers from the rest of Spain.

At least from a political point of view. The offshoot of this rapprochement was a qualitative change in intellectual relations. One has to bear in mind, for instance, that in Catalan difference was at its height. That year saw Barcelona host the first International P.

David Hunter in South Carolina issued proclamations that emancipated slaves in their military regions and permitted them to enlist, their orders were overturned. But the increasingly pressing personnel needs of the Union Army pushed the Government into reconsidering the ban. Two days later, slavery was abolished in the territories of the United States, and on July 22 President Lincoln presented the preliminary draft of the Emancipation Proclamation to his Cabinet.

After the Union Army turned back Lee's first invasion of the North at Antietam, MD, and the Emancipation Proclamation was subsequently announced, black recruitment was pursued in earnest. In May , the Government established the Bureau of Colored Troops to manage the burgeoning numbers of black soldiers. Documents in this activity Broadside Titled, "Wanted! Follow us on Twitter:.
