Additions to The Abolitionist Map of America

We've just added two more "pins" to The Abolitionist Map of America: information about two key abolitionist tracts: Harriet Beecher Stowe's A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin, and American Slavery As It Is, compiled by Theodore D. Weld and Angelina and Sarah Grimke. For those of you who watched the first episode of The Abolitionists, you might recall the mention of American Slavery. You can read more about the books, including Amistad's unique copy of American Slavery at previous blog posts.
