Abolition Poison and Southern Antidotes

(p.481) Chapter Sixteen Abolition Poison and Southern Antidotes
Deliver Us from Evil

Lacy K. Ford, Jr.

Oxford University Press

This chapter details the broader southern reaction to the abolition mail and petition campaigns crafted by the American Anti-slavery Society. Spreading alarm and producing a call for unity and action, particularly in the lower South, the abolition mail campaign struck many whites in the South as nothing short of a terrorist attack on the region, and the mail and petition campaigns together left more white southerners than ever convinced that, at least on the point of abolition, the South had to meet its critics with one voice.
