Antislavery at Oberlin Exhibit, June-July 2013

We have a special exhibit of archival materials on display, "Oberlin, Anti-slavery Activity, and the Coming of the Civil War." The exhibit is up in the Goodrich Room now through the end of July.  Among the items featured are the Bible used by the Oberlin-Wellington Rescuers while they were in jail, early photographs of Oberlin abolitionists, original letters, rifle bullets from a battlefield where Oberlin Union soldiers fought Confederates, and publications on the topic.
