Subtitle: Senator Douglas and His Bantling.
Speaker or author: Watkins, William J.
Newspaper or publication: Frederick Douglass' Paper (1851 - 18??)
The writer suggests that Stephen A. Douglas in his fight for the passage of the Nebraska Bill is actually helping the fight against slavery by bringing the issue to the public eye. There is now a very pronounced distinction between "the north" and "the south" as the country divides on the issue of slavery in the new territories.
