Bound with them in chains; a biographical history of the antislavery movement by Jane H Pease( Book )

5 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 815 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Blurb: American abolitionists found little upon which to agree beyond the single goal of the emancipation of slaves. To underscore this diversity, Jane and William Pease have presented the biographies of ten reformers, demonstrating the diversity of goals, motives, life styles, and insights of the antislavery leaders. These dissimilarities were mirrored in the anti-slavery societies, so that little was done in chorus. Yet the abolition movement itself was powerful; at first a part of the general reforming impulse of that era, it came to overshadow all other reforms. Each of the ten reformers was involved with the antislavery societies directly or indirectly. Each perceived himself as bound with the slaves, not by physical chains, but by the fact of slavery. Each had been born into post revolutionary America when freedom was a general expectation. The bonds that held them were varied: for many the bonds were those of conscience; others were bound by economic interests, political conditions, or social status. For Henry Garnet, a fugitive slave, slavery was to be feared; for Samuel Cornish, a free black, slavery was a possibility. It was a moral problem for Quaker Benjamin Lundy and Unitarian minister Samuel Joseph May. Hiram Wilson saw in fighting it a route to personal salvation. To Clay of Kentucky or Giddings of Ohio, slavery meant the economic enthrallment of his native state. Maria Chapman found it similar to the restrictions and bonds imposed upon women. Jane and William Pease differ with those who would see the abolitionist movement as a unitary reform, fairly static in its means. They demonstrate that it was a remarkably complex movement whose participants defined slavery in many ways and who chose to act, argue, and work according to their individual perceptions

"A Family of Women focuses on the female descendants of Louise Gibert Pettigrew (later changed to Petigru), who rose from upcountry obscurity to privileged prominence in Charleston and on low country plantations, where they variously flourished as belles, managed large households, shocked society with their unconventionality, educated their children, endured troubled marriages, and maintained close family ties."--BOOK JACKET. "Ultimately, the failure of more than one-half of the third generation of Petigru women to marry shattered the family's continuity."--Jacket

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined public records from two major port cities on the east coast of the United States in order to understand how urban centers functioned in antebellum America. The history, culture, and inhabitants of both cities were examined to compare the mechanisms of urban decision-making as they related to national economic and political circumstances. Demographic information was collected on a broad spectrum of individuals from both cities to gather as complete a picture as possible of those who wielded influence or power in the decisions undertaken in Boston and Charleston in response to the economic conditions of the period from 1828 to 1843. Variables in the dataset include the names of individuals, their gender, marital status, occupation, residence, location of business, birth and death dates, place of birth and nationality, political affiliation, church membership, fire and militia company association, professional, religious and/or philanthropic interests, business and corporate affiliations, property holdings, educational experiences, and political offices served....

Twenty-two years a slave and forty years a freeman by Austin Steward( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born a slave in Virginia in 1793, Austin Steward escaped bondage, but his road to freedom did not involve the underground railroad or the use of disguises. Nor did he have to escape from slave catchers and bloodhounds. His story is important because of how he achieved his freedom and what he did with his later life. Transported in his youth to upper New York State by a master who fled business and gambling debts in the South, Steward won his freedom in 1815 because of New York's emancipation laws. Then, with the help of sympathetic white friends in Rochester during the 1820s, he became a prosperous merchant. In this revealing autobiography, Steward speaks briefly of his years in slavery: the long hours of drudgery, and the beatings his family endured. After his emancipation, his early concerns in the North were with is own security in a society unfriendly to African-Americans. When he achieved that security, he sacrificed it to aid fugitive slaves and supported a small Canadian community of Americans who had fled there to escape bondage. A poignant study of one man's attempt to overcome prejudice and to prepare other African-Americans for entrance into a predominantly white society, this book - essential reading for students of American and African-American history - also served as a petition for reform. It is invaluable for its descriptions of achievements among free blacks in pre-Civil war society."--Back cover

Austin Steward : twenty-two years a slave and forty years a freeman by Austin Steward( Book )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The author does not think that any apology is necessary for this issue of his Life and History. He believes that American Slavery is now the great question before the American People: that it is not merely a political question, coming up before the country as the grand element in the making of a President, and then to be laid aside for four years; but that its moral bearings are of such a nature that the Patriot, the Philanthropist, and all good men agree that it is an evil of so much magnitude, that longer to permit it, is to wink at sin, and to incur the righteous judgments of God. The late outrages and aggressions of the slave power to possess itself of new soil, and extend the influence of the hateful and God-provoking "Institution," is a practical commentary upon its benefits and the moral qualities of those who seek to sustain and extend it. The author is therefore the more willing - nay, anxious, to lay alongside of such arguments the history of his own life and experiences as a slave, that those who read may know what are some of the characteristics of that highly favored intitution, which is sought to be preserved and perpetuated. "Facts are stubborn things,"--And this is the reason why all systems, religious, moral, or social, which are founded in injustice, and supported by fraud and robbery, suffer so much by faithful exposition. he author has endeavored to present a true statement of the practical workings of the system of Slavery, as he has seen and felt it himself. He has intended "nothing to extenuate, nor aught set down in malice;" indeed, so far from believing that he has misrepresented Slavery as an institution, he does not feel that he has the power to give anything like a true picture of it in all its deformity and wickedness; especially that Slavery which is an institution among an enlightened and Christian people, who profess to believe that all men are born free and equal, and who have certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
