Sale 2471 Lot 15
(SLAVERY AND ABOLITION.) Issue of the Portland Advertiser with coverage of Nat Turner's Rebellion. 4 pages, 17 x 11 1/4 inches, on two detached sheets; moderate foxing, horizontal fold. Portland, ME, 16 September 1831
Estimate $400 - 600
The first column of page 2 starts with a report on "The Virginia Insurrection." In the weeks after the rebellion was put down, the editors attack "the hasty mode of taking justice which some of the Virginians have adopted. . . . This mode of slaughtering the black population, without trial or the form of trial, is revolting to human nature. The honor of Virginia is implicated."
