John Greenleaf Whittier and the Anti-Slavery Movement

A Program of self-study to refine, update and adopt for publication aspects of a doctoral dissertation on the subject of John Greenleaf Whittier and the anti-slavery movement.

Those areas of concern are; the question of abolition motivation, the relationship of abolitionist thought to later ideological developments in the formation of the Republican Party, the origins, make-up and inner workings of a group of anti-slavery activities known as the "political abolitionists.11
