Author: Harry Bradshaw Matthews
Meticulously researched, Harry Bradshaw Matthews discusses antislavery movements in African American communities in New York State, as well as Pennsylvania and South Carolina, and their role in national movements during the 19th century. He identifies and discusses black leaders, historic sites, and teaches how to conduct genealogical research. By compiling hundreds of illustrations consisting of newspaper articles, editorials, notices, and the name indexes of the 20th and 26th Regiments of the United States Colored Troops, Matthews gives a wealth of genealogical information. This treasure-trove will aid scholars and family historians for years to come.
