The election of 1864, though of utmost importance to the Union's ultimate success in the Civil War and the existence of the United States, is not a topic often discussed in American historiography. Even when historians, particularly William F. Zornow, do write of the election, they often do not put emphasis on some of the most significant and controversial issues of the time, race and slavery; others, like David E. Long, seem to put too much emphasis on the topics, seeing slavery as the most important issue in the election campaign. In order to determine the true role of race and slavery rhetoric in the 1864 presidential election campaign, one examined letters, speeches, and other docume ...

Abby Guy was an illiterate slave woman, but bold and audacious, who took the slave establishment to court and put race and slavery on trial before a jury. She lived three decades as a slave and then ten years as a free woman, wife, widow and mother. In December of 1854 she and her four children were kidnapped by her former owner, William Daniel, and re-enslaved. Abby filed a Petition for Freedom in the Circuit Court in Hamburg, Ashley County, Arkansas, claiming that she was wrongfully enslaved and should be freed because she and her children were white. Her owner denied it, saying that she was born a slave and was still a slave. This is the true story of an audacious woman with an unconq ...

If during the War of Independence eighty-five years earlier, we were a “nation conceived in liberty,” then we as a people had not learned the lessons of freedom.
