Summary
"Harry Bradshaw Matthews' history discusses antislavery movements in African American communities in New York State, as well as Pennsylvania and South Carolina, and their role in national movements during the 19th century. His identification and discussion of black leaders, historic sites, and instruction on conducting genealogical research is an outstanding addition that enhances the work. By compiling hundreds of illustrations consisting of newspaper articles, editorials, notices, and the name indexes of the 20th and 26th Regiments of the United Sates Colored Troops, Matthews gives a unique wealth of genealogical information that is a treasure-trove sure to aid scholars and family historians for years to come."
