Title

The evils of slavery, and the cure of slavery. The first proved by the opinions of southerners themselves, the last shown by historical evidence. 1836

Description

Lyda Maria Child was a journalist, editor scholar, and one of the most well-known novelists of the nineteenth century. After she began writing for the anti-slavery movement in 1831, her radical views resulted in a decrease in her popularity. From 1841-1843, she served as the editor of the National Anti-Slavery Standard, the publication of the American Anti-Slavery Society. After the Civil War ended, she supported woman suffrage as the founder of the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association.
