'Execution of slave trader Nathaniel Gordon in the Tombs prison in New York', 1862', (1938). Artist: Unknown

'Execution of slave trader Nathaniel Gordon in the Tombs prison in New York', 1862', (1938). ''Sentimental enthusiasm for notions of brotherhood of man found frequent and sometimes elegant expression in the North. Early in 1862 a forty-year-old law decreeing that the slave trade was piracy was enforced for the first time when Nathanil Gordon, a slave-trader, was hung. But there was not a hearty welcome awaiting the freedmen from the South. A good deal was said about their stealing the work and bread of the honest Irish and Germans despite the efforts of a few leaders, they were almost universally denied any social or political rights. From Adventures of America 1857-1900, by John A. Kouwenhoven [Harper & Brothers Publishers, New York and London, 1938]

'William Lloyd Garrison trying to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston', c1860, (1938). In February, 1858, Emerson wrote in his Journal, It is impossible to be a gentleman and not be an Abolitionist. But conservative Northern opinion frowned severely on the activities of Abolitionist agitators. When William Lloyd Garrison tried to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston, he and his cohorts were thrown out bodily by the citizens, who subsequently held a meeting whch resolved that Bown's was a nefarious enterprise, and humbly asked their Virginia brothers to help preserve a Union so important to the interest of commerce, manufactures, and agriculture.
