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.
