The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself
by Henson, Josiah
[iv], 71 pp. 1965 reissue of the 1849 original, which is a firsthand account of the life of Josiah Henson, the former slave and abolitionist who founded a school and settlement for fellow fugitive slaves. This narrative is said to have inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe to write her famous novel Uncle Tom's Cabin, which in turn is partially credited with the social upheaval that led to the American Civil War.
