Chapman argues that due to the failures of Reconstruction, slavery had not been truly abolished, and that the legal abolition of slavery was not enough: "If we put it away in the spirit of selfishness, and merely to save ourselves, and our heart be still unbroken by a sense of our crimes against the black man, we may go on to become a greater criminal and murderer than ever, and be therefore farther from national salvation than ever" (page 23).
