Meet the Author

Thomas Wentworth Higginson (1823-1911) was an American abolitionist, Civil War veteran, Unitarian minister, and writer who commanded the First South Carolina Volunteers during the Civil War. Born in Massachusetts, Higginson graduated from divinity school but became increasingly associated with radical abolitionism in the 1850s. He was one of the secret supporters of John Brown, procuring aid for the failed raid on Harper's Ferry in 1859. When the Civil War broke out, Higginson served as a captain in the 51st Massachusetts Infantry and as colonel of the First South Carolina Volunteers from 1862-1864. He devoted his postwar years to writing and as an advocate for the rights of former slaves, women, and other disadvantaged people.
