Michigan Anti-Slavery Society, and Disunion

October 24, 1856

A letter to Garrison, from Henry C. Wright, tells of an Anti-Slavery Convention, in which a resolution was passed urging disunion.  “The people of the non-slaveholding states owe to themselves and to their posterity , and to justice, liberty and humanity, so long and so horribly outraged by the present American Union, to call town, county and state Conventions to consider the expediency and duty  of forming a Northern Republic, on the basis of ‘No Union with Slaveholders'”.
