The American Anti-Slavery Society 50th Anniversary
Semi-Centennial of Freedom
Documents prepared for, and correspondence related to, the fiftieth anniversary of the Anti-Slavery Convention (held in Philadelphia in 1833), and the American Anti-Slavery Society that was formed on the occasion. Most documents in this collection are taken from the Daniel Neall Jr. (1817-1894) papers.
At the Anti-Slavery Convention of 1833, a group of abolitionists including many Quakers--notably James and Lucretia Mott, John G. Whittier, Daniel Neall Sr., and the youthful Daniel Neall Jr.--assembled in Philadelphia. The convention issued a Declaration of Sentiments, drafted by William Lloyd Garrison, and founded the American Anti-Slavery Society. In 1883, as secretary of the society, Daniel Neall Jr. helped organize the conference that celebrated the its 50th anniversary.
