I am curious what the public reaction was, all the way back in 1852, to such a speech and my google skills are failing me.
Would anyone mind helping me find more information on this wonderful article? All that was required of me was to read it, so we can discuss it in class tomorrow, but I am genuinely curious, and want to know for my own benefit.
I promise this is not a case of "omgz, I'm gonna azk the interweb to do my homework!!1", I just want links to more stuff to read, if anyone knows any good sites.
