Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of booklet titled, A Defence [sic] of the South Against the Reproaches and Encroachments of the North: In Which Slavery is Shown to be an Institution of God Intended to Form the Basis of the Best Social State and the Only Safeguard to the Permanent of a Republican Government by Rev. Iveson Lewis Brookes printed by The Republican Office in Hamsburg, SC in 1850. This publication by Rev. Iveson Lewis Brookes was in response to an article against the extension of Slavery to the Territory acquired by the Mexican Treaty that was published in the 1st number of the Christian Review for 1849. Brookes argues that slavery is an institution of God proven by the Bible. In an Appendix, Brookes sets forth a plan that he says would be satisfactory to both North and South “which would preserve the Union upon Constitutional principles and insure peace and prosperity to the country.” (missing pages 13-16)
