In 1846, abolitionists in Pennsylvania put together an “Anti-Slavery Alphabet” and displayed it at a fair in the later part of that year. The reaction was positive enough that the Philadelphia Female Anti-Slavery Society reported to newspapers that it had proven very popular at the fair.
While it’s unclear who wrote it, the short writing clearly was designed for younger readers, an obvious effort to help encourage the spread of abolitionism. Fifteen years later, of course, slavery would bring about the Civil War.
This edition of The Anti-Slavery Alphabet is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and illustrations. There is also a version reproduced with the text only.
