FIrst edition imprint “GENERAL WASHINGTON AND GENERAL JACKSON, ON NEGRO SOLDIERS,” Philadelphia, Henry Carey Baird, 1863, 8pp. octavo, in part: “...We are in the midst of a great war for the existence of free Institutions. No one can be so blind as not to see that the triump of the Confederacy would insure the overthrow of rational liberty. In the heart of the Rebel States there exist four million of an oppressed race, who would gladly aid us in the war we are carrying on...There certainly does exist at this time a strong prejudice in the minds of many against employing Negroes as soldiers...If our fathers in 1812 and grandfathers in 1776, did not hesitate to put muskets into the hands of Negroes, why should we? If Washington and Jackson thought it no disgrace to lead Negroes to battle, why should any offer now hesitate to follow their example?” With some good content from Washington and Jackson and others pertaining to Negro soldiers. Fine condition.
