Boston: Thayer and Eldridge, 1860. [vi], 408p., minor foxing, neatly rebound into modern buckram with spine label.
Journalist Redpath became a fiery abolitionist after covering the civil strife in Kansas during the late 1850s. On the eve of the Civil War, he founded the Haitian Emigrant Bureau, resettling thousands of former slaves in the Carribean. He returned to journalism during the War, then served as superintendent of education in Charleston, S.C., during Reconstruction. THE PUBLIC LIFE reflects Redpath's commitment to the abolitionist cause and his deep admiration of Brown's insurrectionary efforts on behalf of Southern slaves.
