Jesse Thomas Gibbs was my Great-Grandfather, who was the founder and publisher of The Okawville Times, a weekly newspaper (still published today) that he started in December of 1893. He was also a teacher, school principal, and - at the time this booklet was written - he was Superintendent of Schools for Washington County, Illinois. Always concerned with improving the rural schools in the county, he started the first school library in Nashville, the county seat, with books he donated from his own private library.

This short treatise on the history of slavery was probably written as a teaching aid for young scholars, to acquaint them with one of the key issues that led to the outbreak of the Civil War. As such it is not a work of great depth and should be considered more of a brief survey of the subject, written from a neutral viewpoint, but provides an interesting glimpse of how teaching on the subject of slavery was addressed in the elementary schools of Southern Illinois just a few decades after the end of the Civil War. I would recommend it highly for scholars interested in the educational tools of the day in which it was written.

For me, the book's main interest is that my great-grandfather was the author.
