Author Bio for Drew, Benjamin

Benjamin Drew (1812-1908) was an American abolitionist who was active in the Underground Railroad. He was born in Plymouth, Massachusetts. His most notable publication was A North Side View of Slavery, The Refugee: Narratives of Fugitive Slaves in Canada Related by Themselves. It includes several first hand stories of former slaves fleeing persecution in the United States. In 1856 at the time of its publication, the U.S. had passed the Fugitive Slave Act, 1850 which caused many escaped slaves to move to Canada. Drew interviewed these men and women in Canada to produce this book. Drew wrote the book in response to another book called A South-Side View of Slavery; or, Three Months at the South in 1854. This book written by Nehemiah Adams, was an apologist screed seeking to defend slavery and outline its moral benefits. (Mirror of Race)
