AN HISTORICAL RESEARCH NEGROES AS SLAVES, AS CITIZENS, AND AS SOLDIERS
Original 1863 Edition of “An Historical Research respecting the Opinions of the Founders of the Republic on Negroes as Slaves, As Citizens, and as Soldiers” by George Livermore :: Published by Boston: A. Williams and Company :: Measures 6 1/4 x 9 3/4" :: Complete with 184 Pages. VERY GOOD CONDITION: A tightly bound volume, solid hinges, generally clean pages throughout, minor cover wear, complete with all pages; overall an excellent condition example of this black americana title.
Compiled by the Massachusetts Historical Society, the special objection of this work was through research to ascertain the views of the Founders of the United States and to present evidence of the opinions and practice of contemporary British officers in America in relation to the employment of Negroes as slaves, citizens, and soldiers. Throughout are many documents given to show impartially the general state of public sentiment at the time when the United States Government was established.
In the introduction the publishers write:
“In this time of our country's trial, when its Constitution, and even its continued national existence, is in peril, and the people are beginning to be aroused to the magnitude of the work to be done, all other subjects dwindle into comparative insignificance. Loyal men, of every calling in life, are laying aside they chosen and accustomed private pursuits, and devoting themselves, heart and hand, to the common cause. As true patriots, then, we, members of the Massachusetts Historical Society, should do something more than comply, as good citizens, with all the requirements of the Constitution and the laws: we must study, in the light of history, and by the traditions of those who originally founded and at first administered the Government, the fundamental principles on which it was based, and the paramount objects for which it was established. Having done this, it may not be amiss for us to offer the results of our historical researches to others not having the leisure or the opportunity to investigate for themselves.”
Throughout, this book contains such contents as the views from Confederate President Jefferson Davis on Negroes as Citizens, The Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams’ view, The Articles of Confederation regarding free Negroes, The Constitution, The Founders on Negroes as Soldiers, The Employment of Negroes, and much more. As a whole, it is most in depth and fascinating research into the public sentiment of African Americans in the 19th Century.
