9780199837601: Pennsylvania Hall: A 'Legal Lynching' in the Shadow of the Liberty Bell (Critical Historical Encounters Series)

Offering a gripping narrative of one of the most notorious anti-abolition and anti-black riots to take place in the antebellum U.S., Pennsylvania Hall: A 'Legal Lynching' in the Shadow of the Liberty Bell provides a thorough explanation of the complexities of American antislavery and describes a society that was struggling to recreate itself in the wake of emancipation. Part of the Critical Historical Encounters series, Pennsylvania Hall focuses on the differences between gradual and immediate emancipation and the complexities of "immediatism." After describing the tensions between competing abolition camps, author Beverly Tomek examines the way in which the Garrisonian branch of the movement used the press effectively to shape both the contemporary and historical narrative. She demonstrates how Pennsylvania--the birthplace of American abolition--remained relevant to the cause. Illustrating the complexity of the Abolition movement in the North and how internal struggles hampered the movements' goals, Pennsylvania Hall's strong narrative style provides an in-depth analysis while remaining approachable for students.

Book Description Oxford. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Book Condition: New. Philadelphia was the birthplace of American freedom, and in May 1838 it became a battleground over the long-simmering issue of slavery. As Beverly Tomek relates here, the newly built Pennsylvania Hall was designed to be a public meeting place for discussing the issues of the day; after speeches by abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison and Maria Weston Chapman, however, pro-slavery mobs set the building ablaze, burning it down just three days after its grand opening. Far from becoming a turning point in public opinion, Tomek explains, the event and the ensuing riots were blamed on the abolitionists, who had not yet become a cohesive national movement. 206.
