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 822 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 )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The often-stereotyped belles and matrons of the nineteenth-century South emerge as diverse personalities in this account of three generations of women from a South Carolina family whose fate rose and fell with the fortunes of the state. Through vivid, interwoven life stories, the book offers a unique perspective on how these women conducted their lives, shared personal triumphs and defeats, endured the deprivations and despair of civil war, and experienced social revolution."--BOOK JACKET

"Caroline Petigru Carson (1820-1892), the elder daughter of Charleston intellectual James Louis Petigru and sister of the novelist Susan Petigru King, seemed destined from birth for life as a southern plantation mistress. Yet, like her sister, Carson challenged the conventions of nineteenth-century Charleston and defied traditional expectations by living apart from her husband and later as a very merry widow. Like her father unwilling to support secession, Carson, a staunch Unionist, left her native South Carolina at the onset of the Civil War. She settled first in New York and then, a decade later, in Rome among the prestigious social circles for which her background and bearing fitted her
Political Power in Boston, Massachusetts and Charleston, South Carolina, 1828-1843 ( )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 16 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....
