In Frederick Douglass' autobiography 'My Bondage and My Freedom' we can see the power of literacy and belief.

The breadth of his accomplishments gave hope to generations of people who came after him in their fight for civil rights

Biographies of the three wives of Rev. Adoniram Judson, a missionary from the United States to Burma. Ann Hasseltine (1789-1826) of Bradford, Massachusetts, married the Rev. Judson in 1812 and sailed immediately for Calcutta, India. Upon arrival, they found that the British East India Company and the British government would not allow American-born missionaries to work in India, so they moved on to Rangoon and Seramphore, Burma. Her health in the middle east was never good, and after loosing two babies, she herself died in 1826. Sarah Hall (1803-1845) married George Dana Boardman in 1825, and sailed with him to Rangoon and elsewhere in Burma, to strengthen the missionary work there. They lost their two children, and then Mr. Boardman died in 1831. Sarah continued to work as a missionary, and in 1834 she married Rev. Adoniram Judson. They had four children before her health so declined that he determined to take her home to America, but she died en route. Emily Chubbuck (1817-1854), who published poetry under the pen name of "Fanny Forrester," became the third wife of the Rev. Judson in New York in 1846. They sailed immediately for Burma, where he continued his missionary work until he died in 1850. She then left Burma and returned to America in 1851

Wife no. 19, or, The story of a life in bondage : being a complete exposé of Mormonism, and revealing the sorrows, sacrifices and sufferings of women in polygamy by Ann Eliza Young( Book )

1 edition published in 1876 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the true facsimile of the rare original edition with illustrations. Ann Eliza Young (September 13, 1844-1925), also known as Ann Eliza Webb Dee Young Denning, was one of Brigham Young's fifty-five wives and later a critic of polygamy. She spoke out against the suppression of women and was an advocate for women's rights during the 19th century. In 1876, she published an autobiography entitled Wife No. 19. In it she wrote that she had a desire to impress upon the world what Mormonism really is; to show the pitiable condition of its women, held in a system of bondage that is more cruel than African slavery ever was, since it claims to hold body and soul alike. This is her account of the horrors of polygamy and masonry
