“Will you walk into my parlour?” Said the Spider to the Fly. 

+ A nonny mouse asked:
That he was a fierce abolitionist (misconception meme)
Accepting ( x )


Alexander never explicitly stated that he was an abolitionist.  While there are letters here and there that suggest he was, and he was a member of the Society for the Promotion of the Manumission of Slaves, there is no concrete evidence to suggest he was in any way fierce in his opposition of slavery.  Even with his support of Laurens’ plan to free slaves who fought for the continentals?  It was really more of a ends justifying the means situation.  They needed soldiers, so it made sense at the time.

Unfortunately, Alexander often made concessions to slavers (while…saying some nasty things about them, he couldn’t hold his tongue at all) in order to make sure we became the United States and didn’t separate off into the North and South.  Letting them keep their slaves was a way that seemed to make them willing to unify and Alexander simply rolled with it at the time.  He also married into a family that owned slaves (yep, the Schuylers had slaves) and helped move them from one home to another as the need arose.  He didn’t dare speak out against Philip Schuyler, or any of his children, on that fact.

It wasn’t until later in his life that he seemed to be more comfortable stating that slavery was, in fact, wrong.  Whether or not he believed that when he was making his concessions in early life?  It’s difficult to say.  If he did?  He didn’t write it down all that often.

So, while he himself didn’t own slaves (his family owned one or two for a short time in Nevis and the Schuylers owned a number), he certainly was not a fierce abolitionist.
