Anti-Slavery Broadside, 1836
Poster Caption: This elaborate and stinging broadside, replete with detailed evidence, was published by the American Anti-Slavery Society in 1836 to condemn the persistence of slavery in the nation’s capital. It was not until April 1862 that Congress passed and Abraham Lincoln signed into law the bill that ended slavery in Washington, DC. (Broadside published by the American Anti-Slavery Society in New York, 1836)
