LIBERTY'S CHAIN: Slavery, Abolition, and the Jay Family of New York
This work forges a new path for thinking about slavery and the nation's founding. John Jay served as the inaugural president of a pioneering antislavery society. His descendants, especially his son William Jay and his grandson John Jay II, embraced radical abolitionism in the 19th century, the cause most likely to rend the nation. Photos.
