Title: William Howard Day

Speaker or author: Day, William Howard, d. 1900

Newspaper or publication: National Anti-Slavery Standard

The speaker stressed his belief that the government under the leadership of Abraham Lincoln had failed to provide for the emancipation of the slaves as they had all believed it would. He noted the countries that had freed their slaves over the past decades, and stressed the inhumanity that seemed to rule a country that refused to acknowledge the evil in this continued system.
