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 808 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 : the Carolina Petigrus in peace and war by Jane H Pease( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

James Louis Petigru : southern conservative, southern dissenter by William H Pease( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first modern biography of James Louis Petigru (1789-1863), the dean of the South Carolina bar in the antebellum period and a major figure in the state's political and social development. As William H. Pease and Jane H. Pease explain Petigru the lawyer, the political persona, the private individual, and the family patriarch, they also illuminate the particulars of law practice in a nineteenth-century southern city and the processes of lawyering in the lower and appellate courts of both state and nation."--BOOK JACKET. "The theme to which the authors continually return is the ambiguity that characterized Petigru's life, for he embodied principles to which the North or the South, but rarely both regions, laid claim. Though loyal to his native South, Petigru was often critical of its politics and ambivalent about economics. Nonetheless, southerners prized his sense of honor, his idealism and personal independence, and his gracious dignity and patrician bearing. In the North, Petigru was venerated for his loyalty to Union, Constitution, and country."--BOOK JACKET. "This biography is replete with details about such aspects of Petigru's personal life as his rural upcountry childhood, his education, his marriage and friendships, and his financial travails stemming from disastrous land-speculation ventures. At the heart of the book, however, is the story of Petigru's political and legal career, which included service as South Carolina's attorney general and two terms as a state representative, and culminated in his codification of South Carolina law. Placing Petigru's frequent dissent from the political status quo in the context of South Carolina's radical sectionalism, the authors discuss such topics as Petigru's defense of Unionist interests during the nullification crisis and his work on the behalf of Northern clients against Confederate sequestration laws during the Civil War."--BOOK JACKET. "To this day, both conservative and liberal elements of southern politics claim Petigru as one of their own. Although Petigru represented wealthy heirs in probate cases as well as merchants and corporations in matters of debt or commercial law, he is also remembered as an advocate for the disadvantaged - among them, imprisoned paupers, free blacks facing reenslavement, and abused or defrauded women. Informing all aspects of his professional life were the premises that protection of property was fundamental to individual liberty and that the U.S. Constitution and the common law tradition provided the best assurance of justice"--BOOK JACKET

Political Power in Boston, Massachusetts and Charleston, South Carolina, 1828-1843 by Jane H Pease( )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 36 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 ...
