For obvious reasons, the abolition of slavery in the United States is the most prominent topic in my narrative; but I have freely interspersed observations on other subjects of interest and importance, as they came under consideration. -from the Preface All but forgotten in antislavery history of the United States, this powerful testimonial, by a British visitor to American shores, offers an intimate look through an outsider's eye at the South's peculiar institution. Sturges, a British For obvious reasons, the abolition of slavery in the United States is the most prominent topic in my narrative; but I have freely interspersed observations on other subjects of interest and importance, as they came under consideration. -from the Preface All but forgotten in antislavery history of the United States, this powerful testimonial, by a British visitor to American shores, offers an intimate look through an outsider's eye at the South's peculiar institution. Sturges, a British Quaker and activist, draws brief portraits of prominent American abolitionists and, unlike many similar contemporary works, does not ignore the contributions of women as social reformers in pre-Civil War American society. Whether it's relating the tale of a runaway slave and her baby sold back into slavery or addressing the everyday indignities suffered by even free black Americans, this 1842 work seethes with the passion and indignation that would eventually see the end of slavery in the United States. British philanthropist and abolitionist JOSEPH STURGE (1793-1859) also wrote The West Indies in 1837, an account of slavery in the islands.

A Visit to the United States in 1841 - nouveau livre

ISBN: 9781161419528

Joseph Sturge (1793-1859) was an English Quaker and founder of the British and Foreign Anti-Slavery Society. The Society's first major activity was to organise the World's first International Anti-slavery Conference. Sturge spent his life engaged in radical political actions supporting pacifism, working class rights, and the universal emancipation of slaves. In Jamaica, Joseph Sturge helped to found Free Villages with the Baptists, one of which was named Sturge Town in his memory. A member of the Religious Society of Friends, Joseph Sturge refused, in his business as a corn factor, to deal in grain used in the manufacture of spirits. Over the coming years he developed many links with Jamaica, visiting it several times, witnessing the horrors of slavery, and working for emancipation with African-Caribbean and English Baptists. On his return to England he gave his support to the Chartist movement, and in 1842 was candidate for Nottingham, but was defeated by John Walter, the proprietor of The Times. He wrote A Visit to the United States in 1841 (1842).
