Abstract

This thesis is an attempt to present in a general way some aspects of the pre-Civil War historical drama. The plays chosen cover the years from 1766-1830 inclusive. Arthur Hobson Quinn and Montrose J. Moses, writers on early American drama, have endeavored to treat the entire field in its social, political, historical, and economical aspects. I have limited my attempt to the historical phase in which there are at least five distinct groups. The following topical analysis of the plays I have used will present these more clearly.
