Title:
Revolution The Only Remedy For Slavery

Author:
[Foster, Stephen Symonds]

Place:
New York

Publisher:
American Anti-Slavery Society

Date:
ca. 1855

Description:

Anti-Slavery Tract, No. 7  20pp. Original wrappers, string tied at spine, without covers (as issued).

The only one of the 24 Tracts issued  by the Anti-Slavery Society in the mid 1850s, to be written anonymously, perhaps because of its incendiary title.

The author, a New England clergyman, was not actually advocating violent revolution by slaves against their masters – Foster was instead speaking of a figurative “revolution” to “renovate…the moral sentiments of the country” against the ingrained institution of slavery.
