Early American views on Negro slavery : from the letters and papers of the founders of the Republic by Matthew T Mellon( Book )
18 editions published between 1934 and 1969 in English and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduction: Mr. Mellon's illuminating presentation of the views of some of the founding fathers on slavery and the Negro exposes the raw nerve of American democratic society. If the central theme of the American Revolution was freedom and equality, the impact of that epochal struggle upon the black man was at best peripheral. The Declaration of Independence had dedicated the Revolution to the proposition that "all men are created equal." There were some who wondered whether that proposition would be applied to the ending of slavery, the greatest of all human inequalities
