Attractive CDV of Abolitionist Preacher Henry Ward Beecher
Click on an image to enlarge
This is an exceptionally clean CDV of the famed abolitionist. Beecher was renowned for his oratory and routinely drew crowds of 25 hundred or more during Sunday services. His opposition to slavery led him to raise funds to support the abolitionist cause in Kansas. Some of these monies were used to purchase firearms, which became known as "Beecher’s Bibles". Beecher was the son of noted minister Lyman Beecher and the brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe, who authored "Uncle Tom’s Cabin". Henry was also a committed supporter of women’s suffrage and the temperance movement. This image is in perfect condition, but for the minute clips on each corner. No doubt, this was done a century accomodate insertion into an album. Beecher views are not particularly rare, but they are important to any Civil War or antique photo collection.
