Warren County Historical Society Presents

Defeating Slavery: Hamilton’s American System Showed the Way

Thursday, June 13, 2024, 7 pm

The Warren County Historical Society is pleased to present Defeating Slavery: Hamilton’s American System Showed the Way with author Nancy Bradeen Spannaus, at the Crandall Public Library in Glens Falls.

In her new book, which Kirkus Review calls a “stimulating take on the intersection of American slavery and economic policy,” Spannaus documents the depth and pre-eminence of the American anti-slavery movement, starting in the 18th century and growing to a peak during the Revolutionary era. The fight against slavery by persons of all races was integral to our Revolution, and never died. It was the sabotage of Hamilton’s economic principles, especially in the Andrew Jackson administration, that made the Civil War necessary in order to end the scourge of slavery.
This event is free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by the Folklife Center at Crandall Public Library and the WarrenNY250 Commission.
