about

This is the first comprehensive collection of the speeches of Owen Lovejoy (1811-64). After the assassination of his brother, Elijah, for printing an antislavery newspaper, instead of seeking revenge on the murderers, Lovejoy chose to help eradicate the system of racial slavery.
Including sermons, campaign speeches, open letters, and his congressional exchanges and addresses, His Brother's Blood offers a colorful and important perspective on the turmoil leading up to the Civil War and the excitement in Congress that produced universal emancipation.
 
William F. Moore and Jane Ann Moore are ordained ministers in the United Church of Christ and codirectors of the Lovejoy Society. Paul Simon, retired U.S. senator from Illinois, teaches and directs the Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. He is the author of Freedom’s Champion: Elijah Lovejoy.
