A Review of a Letter, From the Presbytery of Chillicothe, to the Presbytery of Mississippi, on the Subject of Slavery
This provocative pamphlet offers a staunch defense of slavery from a religious perspective. Smylie argues that slavery is not only legally and morally justifiable, but that it is divinely ordained and necessary for the proper functioning of society. Though controversial today, this work provides valuable insight into the intersection of religion and politics in antebellum America.
