Free hearts, and free homes : gender and American antislavery politics
By exploring the intersection of gender and politics in the antebellum North, Pierson examines how antislavery political parties capitalized on the emerging family practices and ideologies that accompanied the market revolution. From the birth of the Liberty Party in 1840 through the election of Republican Lincoln in 1860, antislavery parties celebrated the social practices of modernizing northern families. By examining the writings of Harriet Beecher Stowe, Lydia Maria Child, and other antislavery women, this study rediscovers how crucial gender ideologies were to American politics on the eve of the Civil War.
