From Belleville to the American Deep South: One Man’s Story of the Slave Trade and Emancipation. Adapted from “Memoirs of a Reformer” and “Recollections and Experiences of an Abolitionist” by Alexander Milton Ross
Alexander Milton Ross, born in Belleville, Canada West (Ontario) in 1832, was a respected physician, abolitionist, author, naturalist, and reformer. As a strident opponent of slavery in the southern United States be helped untold numbers of men, women and children escape bondage by assisting in their journey to freedom in the northern states and Canada.
He also claimed to be friends with the people who affected change in America, such as President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist/martyr/terrorist John Brown; a claim to which some modern biographers have disputed.
In this new book, two best known autobiographical writings, Recollections and Experiences of an Abolitionist and Memoirs of a Reformer, form the basis of new narrative of his eye-witness account of an exciting, turbulent, and disturbing period in the history of the United States.
A new look is also taken at the man himself; his successes and his controversies.
