The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and Slavery
Eric Foner, renowned American historian, will speak as part of the Rutman Distinguished Lecture Series on the American Presidency at the University of New Hampshire Monday, October 23, 2017, at 7 p.m. in the Huddleston Hall Ballroom. His talk, entitled The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and Slavery, is free and open to the public but registration is required.
In the British-American Peace Treaty of 1783 that ended the Revolutionary War, one of the most controversial clauses prohibited the British Army from evacuating thousands of African-Americans from New York and the other cities that Britain still held. Many had been slaves when the war began and had been promised freedom by fighting for King George III. Some were returned to slavery as the Treaty required, but thousands, including a Black Loyalist from Mount Vernon, Virginia, named Harry Washington, resisted and eventually made their way to freedom.
