Abstract:

Searchable digital collection of pamphlets and leaflets donated to Cornell University by abolitionist and humanitarian Samuel J. May. Covers the anti-slavery struggle at local, regional, national, and international levels during the ante-bellum and Civil War periods in America. Includes essays, sermons, speeches, court proceedings and decisions, etc. Most pamphlets are anti-slavery, but some are pro-slavery. Topics include arguments for and against slavery; the relation of slavery to Biblical teachings; history of slavery around the world, and especially in the United States; the question of whether new American states should be required to give up slavery before joining the Union; the status of fugitive slaves, and whether states harboring them should be required to return them to their former owners; the slave trade and its economic supports, such as the sugar trade; and the organization, principles, and functioning of anti-slavery societies. Activities of churches and women's societies in opposing slavery are heavily documented. Contributors include Gerrit Smith, William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, Lydia Maria Child, Harriet Beecher Stowe, the Massachusetts Anti-Slavery Society, the American Anti-Slavery Society, the New England Anti-Slavery Convention, the Edinburgh Ladies' Emancipation Society, and many others.
