(p.212) (p.213) Conclusion
Liberty Power

Corey M. Brooks

University of Chicago Press

This conclusion summarizes key arguments from the main narrative of the book, emphasizing the success political abolitionists achieved in promoting and expanding anti-Slave Power politics across the North. The chapter also narrates how those anti-Slave Power arguments shaped Republican Party politics in the late 1850s and influenced the policies that Republican politicians pursued to advance abolition in the midst of the Civil War. In discussing the antislavery politics and policymaking of the pre-war and wartime Republican Party, this conclusion especially focuses on Republicans in the U.S. Congress, among them former Liberty Party and Free Soil Party activists.
