In the 1830s, the abolitionist movement gained remarkable momentum due in large measure to the establishment of the American Anti-Slavery Society and the work carried out by one of its most important leaders, Theodore Dwight Weld. One of Weld’s most significant accomplishments was the recruitment of a group of key abolitionist agents, known as the “Seventy,” who worked to expand the reach of abolitionist thought and action and enlisted new members into the movement. This volume chronicles the founding, development, and mission of the American Anti-Slavery Society, the contributions of Weld, and the crusading efforts of the agents he assembled. With the most complete list to date of the identities of the Seventy, this work constitutes a valuable contribution to the history of the abolitionist movement.

This book was created from the original title "American Slavery as it is in 1839-Testimony of a Thousand Witnesses" written by Theodore Weld. It was the book that inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe to pen her novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and along with that book, helped ignite the flames of the American Civil War. The first hand, eyewitness accounts in this book both shocked and infuriated many people in the northern free states who knew that slavery was bad...but had no idea just how bad it really was. The Abolitionist movement took off and began to grow with increased pressure being put on our government to end this abomination. The southern slave states bitterly opposed any new laws to remove this blight from our country and the end result was Civil War.

Unable to attend the American Anti-Slavery Society's 30th anniversary meeting in Philadelphia, Theodore Weld, Angelina Weld, and Sarah Grimke write to William Lloyd Garrison a "few words of earnest greeting" to pass on to the abolitionists at the convention. Weld asserts that the end of slavery is nigh, and that it is simply a matter of collective will and effort. Weld reminds Garrison that the "fullest celebration of the past is to gird ourselves anew for the present & the future."
