Scope and Content Note
The collection consists of a1851 pamphlet titled, A Defence Of Southern Slavery. Against The Attacks of Henry Clay And Alex'r. Campbell : In Which Much of The False Philanthropy And Mawkish Sentimentalism of The Abolitionists Is Met And Refuted. In Which It Is Moreover Shown That The Association of The White And Black Races In The Relation of Master And Slave Is The Appointed Order Of God, As Set Forth In The Bible, And Constitutes The Best Social Condition Of Both Races, And The Only True Principle Of Republicanism written by Rev. Iveson Lewis Brookes of Hamburg, S.C. The booklet written in answer to Henry Clay’s Letter on Emancipation and Alexander Campbell’s Tract for the People of Kentucky maintains that Clay and Campbell under the guise of writing against slavery in Kentucky, maligned the whole of the Southern States. Brookes refutes each man’s stance point by point. Iveson Lewis Brookes (1793-1865) was a planter and Baptist minister from Rockingham, NC educated at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was a staunch defender of slavery and owned several plantations and many slaves.
A Defense of Southern Slavery was transferred from Special Collection to the Archives on September 24, 1959.
