'Execution of slave trader Nathaniel Gordon in the Tombs prison in New York', 1862', (1938). ''Sentimental enthusiasm for notions of brotherhood of man found frequent and sometimes elegant expression in the North. Early in 1862 a forty-year-old law decreeing that the slave trade was piracy was enforced for the first time when Nathanil Gordon, a slave-trader, was hung. But there was not a hearty welcome awaiting the freedmen from the South. A good deal was said about their stealing the work and bread of the honest Irish and Germans despite the efforts of a few leaders, they were almost universally denied any social or political rights. From Adventures of America 1857-1900, by John A. Kouwenhoven [Harper & Brothers Publishers, New York and London, 1938]
