“God always intended the relation of master and slave to exist”

– William G Brownlow, Ought American Slavery

 

A rare first edition of the slavery debates between pro-slavery William Brownlow and abolitionist Abram Pryne. Brownlow was seeking a challenging debate from an abolitionist, and he received one from Pryne. Brownlow states in his opening argument:

“Not only will I throughout this discussion openly and boldly take the ground that Slavery as it exists in America ought to be perpetuated, but that slavery is an established and inevitable condition to human society. I will maintain the ground that God always intended the relation of master and slave to exist; that Christ and the early teachers of Christianity, found slavery differing in no material respect from American slavery, incorporated into every department of society… that slavery having existed ever since the first organization of society, it will exist to the end of time.”

Brownlow would waver heavily on his stance of slavery, arguing against it during the Civil War, calling for emancipation.

 

This book includes two portrait engravings of Brownlow and Pryne.
