Sample text

But soldiers who hailed from Southern states faced a far more difficult choice. They were forced to choose between standing with their families and birth states or standing with the national government to which they had sworn loyalty. Southerners who chose to remain loyal to the Union often experienced great personal pain, as friends and family members condemned them for their decision. For example, George Henry Thomas (1816–1870) decided to fight for the Union even though he had been raised in Virginia.

Stowe moved to Brunswick, Maine, the same year that the Fugitive Slave Act was passed. The new law inspired her to begin a novel that became the single most important piece of antislavery literature in American history. Stowe’s work, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, first appeared as a series of short articles in National Era magazine in 1851. It proved to be extremely popular with Northern readers and was published in book form in 1852. Uncle Tom’s Cabin follows the lives of several black slaves who work for a cruel man named Simon Legree in the South.

Many Southern states also banned (prohibited) the sale of written materials that opposed slavery, such as the famous novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896). Douglass mentions some of these Southern tactics (methods) in his speech. He argues that these measures are inconsistent with the values set forth in the Constitution. He claims that the Southerners will erode the basic freedoms of all Americans if they are not stopped. “Freedom of the speech, of the press, of education, of labor, of locomotion, and indeed all kinds of freedom, are felt to be a standing menace [threat] to slavery,” he explains.
