Sample text

61 In practice, of course, the appearance of Union columns led the slaves to act no longer as mere “possessions,” but as Union scouts, auxiliaries, and recruits eager to see the Confederacy defeated. The Emancipation policy was always premised on the view that slaves would respond to it. So long as slaves were still unarmed in the face of mounted patrols and blood-hounds, there was little they could do, but once Union troops thrust into Confederate territory the black population became an invaluable ally, helping the Union at last to crush the stubborn rebellion.

That rival expansionist impulses in both sections provoked sectional hostility was clear enough by the 1850s. See Michael Morrison, Slavery and the introduction 33 The secession of a limited number of rural states would, in this view, drastically diminish US power. It would hand over control of the Mississippi to the rebels and put in question free access to Southern markets. Even worse, it would spell the end of the “empire of liberty,” harming both sections, since, separated, they would no longer count.

He paraphrases at length a speech by Phillips “of the highest importance” in which the veteran abolitionist indicts Lincoln’s conservative and cowardly policy: The government [of Lincoln] fights for the maintenance of slavery and therefore it fights in vain … He [Lincoln] waits … for the nation to take him in hand and sweep away slavery through him … If the war is continued in this fashion it is a useless squandering of blood and gold … Dissolve this Union in God’s name and put another in its place, on the cornerstone of which is written: “Political equality for all the citizens in the world” … Let us hope that the war lasts long enough to transform us into men, and then we shall quickly triumph.
