Summary

A groundbreaking collection of documents from America's greatest moral crusade.

For as long as the scourge of slavery afflicted America, brave voices cried out against the pernicious institution. Those eloquent cries resound again in this original anthology of primary documents from the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century antislavery and abolitionist movements.

Mason Lowance has assembled more than forty crucial speeches, lectures, and essays to trace the evolution of the most important and revolutionary reform in American history: the abolitionist crusade. Here are the riveting words of the men and women who led the crusade, including William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, Lydia Maria Child, Wendell Phillips, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. In gathering the voices that still summon ''the better angels of our nature,'' Against Slavery will be an invaluable resource to students, scholars, and general readers alike.
