Chapter fifty-one examines Hodge’s growing animosity toward slavery. While his biblical position on slavery never changed, he became convinced during the Civil War that slavery as it was practiced in the South with its high racial component was a great evil. He stood against polygenism. Through a series of important Repertory articles on the War, Hodge showed his support for Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, his complete commitment to monogenism and his aversion to England coming to the aid of the South.
