Slavery: Advocacy & Opposition, 1675-1865

Alternative Name:   Slavery: Supporters and Abolitionist 1675-1865 (British Online Archives)
Type:   Manuscripts
   Government Documents
   Historical EJournals
Description:   This publication unites a range of collections upon slavery for the first time. With a focus upon Jamaica and the West Indies, they also cover tensions in the anti-slavery movement as Christians challenged churches on their acceptance of proceeds from slavery; while transatlantic tensions were exacerbated when British protesters criticised slavery in the fledgling United States. These papers' coverage is mainly focussed upon the 18th and 19th century, a time period over which abolitionist views would grow in prominence and government views on the practice would change markedly.
