Judah P. Benjamin
RARE 1860 Speech JUDAH BENJAMIN Louisiana Defense Slavery Democrats, Confederate
Washington City : Issued by the National Democratic Executive Committee, 1860. FIRST EDITION. 24 pp. Disbound, removed from a bound collection of speeches. Judah Benjamin was the first Jew to serve in the U. S. Senate who did not renounce his Judaism, and future secretary of State for the Confederacy, Louisiana Senator Benjamin levels both barrels at Senator Stephen A. Douglas and his Popular Sovereignty doctrine. An important marker in the dismantling of the National Democratic Party. Signaling Southern repudiation of the Illinois Senator as the Democratic Party's presidential candidate, Benjamin argues that the South will be satisfied only by guarantees for the protection of slavery-- regardless of popular feeling-- in the Territories. In the course of arraigning Douglas, Benjamin discusses in some detail the former's debates with Abraham Lincoln in the Illinois senatorial contest two years earlier (the famous the "Lincoln-Douglas Debates") . Sabin; 4701. I've done my best to describe the piece, but if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail. [Attributes: First Edition]
