By the middle of the 19th century, slavery had created a fevered pitch in the politics of the United States, as abolitionists and slavery proponents fought a war of words and actual wars in Kansas and Nebraska. While the South postured for secession, abolitionists, both white and black, created a stronger movement in the Northeast in places like Boston. Ultimately the issue would have to be settled via civil war.
William J. Anderson was born in 1811 to a free mother and a slave father. Unbelievably, after his father died, his own mother sold him into slavery. Before finally escaping to free Indiana in 1836, he endured, witnessed, or heard accounts from other slaves every evil that has come to be associated with the institution of slavery. His only source of solace in those days was his unwavering faith in God.
This edition of Life and Narrative of William J. Anderson, Twenty-Four Years a Slave is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and pictures of famous abolitionists like Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and more.
