Lewis Tappan and the Evangelical War Against Slavery

Front Cover
Lewis Tappan (1788-1873), founder of the JOURNAL OF COMMERCE and the nation's first credit rating firm, is probably best known for his business accomplishments. But his greatest achievement was freedom. In the 1830s, he and his brother Arthur underwrote the Manhattan headquarters of the American Anti-Slavery Society and founded many other organizations to promote freedom, faith, and racial tolerance.
