Abolitionists published many illustrated tracts for children on the evils
of slavery to inculcate the next generation with anti-slavery beliefs.
Many of these tracts featured stories of slave children separated from
their parents to show free children the urgency of the abolitionist cause.
This alphabet book uses slavery, abolitionist, and Christian terms to
teach children abolitionist principles.
