The Dual Revolutions. Anti-Slavery and Pro-Slavery
1863 Baltimore Pamphlet by a Unionist Blaming New England for the Civil War

The Dual Revolutions. Anti-Slavery and Pro-Slavery

Baltimore: Printed by W. M. Innes, 1863. Later card covers. Octavo. 48 pages. Bound in later moire-patterned card covers with type-script label on front cover. Light tanning to pamphlet, with an old pencil note below author's name and a faint water-tide mark at inner margin, and on title page. Very good to near fine overall.

Interesting and uncommon pamphlet published in Baltimore during the Civil War which is highly critical of Abraham Lincoln, New England, and Abolitionists. The author sees disunion and the Civil War as resulting from self-righteous New Englanders too aggressively pushing their agenda on the South. He claims that while Lincoln's words claimed to want the Union preserved, his policies forced the rift with the South.
