A house divided : a study of statehood politics and the Copperhead movement in West Virginia during the Civil War by Richard Orr Curry( )

3 editions published between 1961 and 1975 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No one should have been surprised that northwestern Virginia repudiated secession. Every informed person, than and since, admitted the existence of a strong pro-Union sentiment in this area. But many have disagreed upon the extent of the pro-Union allegiance in West Virginia and upon the history and significance of the statehood movement. It will be the purpose of this study to determine whether earlier works on the 'disruption of Virginia' properly assess the quantum relationship between Unionist and secessionists in West Virginia; to challenge the validity of other interpretations of the statehood movement; and to examine aspects of Civil War politics in West Virginia that have not been investigated by other historians"--Page 3

American slavery as it is; testimony of a thousand witnesses by Theodore Dwight Weld( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in Undetermined and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1839, this work was edited by the evangelist and noted abolitionist Theodore Dwight Weld (1803-95). It is an extensive collection of first-hand testimony and narratives by slaveholders describing the facts and highlighting the cruelty of the slave trade. One of the most influential books of the anti-slavery movement, it aimed to document the current condition of slaves in the United States, covering all aspects of their lives, in order to further the abolition movement. Weld presents accounts of slaves' food, clothing, living conditions, working hours, and their punishments and suffering. This is interspersed with personal narratives from contributors which corroborate each other, presented in a detached, unsensational manner. Great pains were taken in compiling this work to emphasise the trustworthy nature of Weld's contributors so that there could be no doubt of the authenticity of their claims and the need for an end to slavery
