Hello Everyone, You are receiving this message because you are subscribed to the HAC Newsletter. Sorry I've lost my nice format for the moment. Hope to see you tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. at the UU Hamden campus as usual. Cynthia Harvey
this meeting of Conservations we'll watch parts of the recent PBS
presentation “The Abolitionists.”
What does their work mean
today? Earlier in the 20C some historical thought declared that
economic and other social factors made the conflict inevitable. Might the
Civil War not have happened without the Abolition Movement?
“On New Years
Day, 1863, William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Frederick
Douglass, and countless other abolitionists across the nation waited
anxiously for word on the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation.”
Now the war must be won and unity grew within the union. It was two
more years before the Amendment XIII completed the process of freeing
all from the thrall of slavery. Quotes
from PBS notes.
Might Emancipation not have happened without the publication of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" which has been said to be the most popular book in the 19C?
