Additional Details

An abolitionist textile with 25 vignettes from Uncle Tom's Cabin. The central image of an enslaved woman in chains being whipped is captioned "Scenes daily and hourly acting under the shadow of American law." Listed in Collins, Threads of History, 361 with a circa 1870 date, but we strongly suspect it was issued before abolition.
