American Slavery As It Is: Selections from the Testimony of a Thousand Witnesses

The stories of hundreds of African-Americans who lived in bondage are preserved in this powerful 1839 chronicle. Compiled by a prominent abolitionist, the first-person narratives offer an intimate view of the daily lives of slaves, detailing their working and living conditions across many states. A major influence on the writing of Uncle Tom's Cabin, this volume constitutes a valuable historical testament. Dover's edition includes the first-person testimonials which offer an unvarnished glimpse into America's troubled past.
