Additional Details

The Hutchinson Family Singers emerged from New Hampshire to become the nation's most popular singing group of the 1840s. Overtly political, they did much to advance the cause of white abolitionism. This sheet music for "Get off the Track" features the "Immediate Emancipation" train pulled by the Liberator locomotive. "Emancipation soon will bless our happy nation. Huzza! Huzza!! Huzza!!!" Every generation could use more pop stars like these.
