One of the most famous of the abolitionary papers was the National Era. Begun and edited by Dr. Gamaliel Bailey in 1847, the Era was wholly committed to the cause of freedom for the slave. Its fiery articles did much to incite furor among the Northern sympathizers. The outstanding example of this was the first publication of Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin, which ran serially in 1851-52. This story is claimed to have contributed more to the War than any other writing on slavery. And it certainly contributed immensely to the Era's fame. Articles on the Compromise of 1850 and on John Brown's raid are also included in the columns. In addition, some excellent poetry will be found. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
