Another Booklet, title "The Southern Platform: or, Manual of Southern Sentiment on the Subject of Slavery", by Daniel R. Goodloe, Boston, 1858, 80pp. lacks covers. The anti-slavery publications points out the contradictions of the belief that all men should be free and the ongoing fact of slavery by printing speeches and anecdotes of the well-known Southerners. One dramatic example revolves around a slave in the care of President Washington, 1796. On May 21, 1796, enslaved maid Ona Judge seized her freedom from the President's House in Philadelphia while George and Martha Washington ate dinner. She lived out her years in New Hampshire, where she married a free black sailor named Jack Staines. Under the Fugitive Slave Law of 1793, Judge remained a fugitive until her death in 1848. Fascinating and historic slavery anecdotes.
