1919: The Anti-Slavery Crusade
Author/Editor: Jesse Macy
Jesse Macy (June 21, 1842 – November 2, 1919) was an political scientist and historian. The Anti-Slavery Crusade is part of a series of fifty volumes called the Chronicles of America (available freely online). Originally printed in 1918, the volumes were written by historians of the time about various aspects of American History. Since the copyright has expired, some of the volumes are freely available in electronic form. In 1923, Yale decided to create a series of films based on the books. Fifteen films were ultimately produced.
