Levi, Kate Asaphine Everest "The Wisconsin press and slavery"

The Wisconsin Press and Slavery: This article reviews the attitudes expressed in Wisconsin newspapers from 1840 to 1860 on slavery, the abolitionist movement, and states rights. It describes in detail the connections between anti-slavery papers and the Democratic, Whig, Free Soil, and Republican parties, placing the abolitionist sympathies of most papers in the context of land reform, trade policy, temperance, women’s rights, and other social concerns of the mid-19th century.
