Description
 
These Civil War pamphlets provide insight into the views of a northern city's Union supporters during a time of national reform and rebellion. They represent Philadelphia's intellectual output during the war and stands as evidence of the intellectual ferment the war engendered. They illustrate how pro-Union constituents tried to maintain a cohesive movement in Philadelphia while promoting national reunification. The twelve pamphlets and one hymn discuss victory and peace; liberty, unity, and the abolition of slavery; organizing support for the Union, Lincoln, and freed slaves; adjustments to the Constitution and justifications for suspension of habeas corpus; the merits of the Union League of Philadelphia’s cause; and medical remedies for soldiers. Illustrated
