Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
William Henry Brisbane (1806-1878) was a Baptist pastor and physician who inherited a plantation with its slaves. Upon freeing his slaves, he was forced out of South Carolina and took refuge in Cincinnati. As he reluctantly became an abolitionist, he searched for ways to promulgate his convictions and tried fiction. A common device by abolitionists, this was also used by his Cincinnati neighbor, Harriet Beecher Stowe. However, WHB was much better at expository writing than fiction. After a disappointing experience at publications, he moved to Philadelphia and hoped the atmosphere of this leading publications city would work to his advantage. It did not.

This is not good literature, but it is a helpful and informative document for the study of abolitionism.

A biography of Brisbane is being written.
