Five hundred political texts revealing abolitionist "treason" (1864)
Logic of history. Five hundred political texts; being concentrated extracts of abolitionism; also, results, of slavery agitation and emancipation; together with sundry chapters on despotism, usurpations and their frauds.
Ardent Democrat S.D. Carpenter compiled this collection of abolitionist activity and sentiment as proof of the disloyalty and treason of the anti-slavery movement. Providing a history of slavery from Rome to the present day, Carpenter sought to show how abolition was a "northern conspiracy" that had led to the dissolution of the United States.
