This class will focus on the politically significant yet seldom acknowledged common ground between a section of labor reformers and political abolitionists in New York on questions of land and freedom for all citizens, regardless of race.
Through an investigation of personal papers, public lectures, and newspapers of the period leading up to the Mexican-American War, this class will trace the transformation of radical reform traditions from practices divided along racial lines, to movements with shared goals and priorities. We will see how in the lead-up to this conflict, Northern reformers were pushed to develop innovative political and social organizations in an effort to break the pattern of compromise with the slave South, and how Paineite (after Thomas Paine) circles of agrarian radicals and abolitionist networks organized—sometimes in tandem—to form a Northern cross-class opposition to slavery.
