The abstract is:
This week in the twittersphere, an unusual letter found in the manuscript collections at the Library of Congress made the spotlight. Explored by historian Adam Rothman in his article “’My Dear Master:’ An Enslaved Blacksmith’s Letter to a President,” the letter provides a glimpse into the life and political awareness of one enslaved man during the mid-nineteenth century.
