This might be an interesting subject to discuss at a
reenactment.

Short bio from wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Greenleaf_Whittier

John Greenleaf Whittier (December 17, 1807 – September 7, 1892) was an influential American Quaker poet and ardent advocate of the abolition of slavery in the United States. He is usually listed as one of the Fireside Poets.

Whittier's poems often used slavery to symbolize all kinds of
oppression (physical, spiritual, economic), and his poems stirred up popular response because they appealed to feelings rather than logic.
