Abstract:

August 14, 1777 broadside from "Antibiastes" in Philadelphia, regarding his observations on slaves and indentured servants serving in the Army and Navy.

He encouraged amnesty for soldiers in certain instances (such as desertion), as well as emancipating the slaves/servants who served in the military. A variant copy was also printed which contained a quote by Horace and a colophon.
