White Paper: Medical Care in 19th Century America

At the turn of nineteenth century America, debilitating illness and death were as common for children and young adults as for elders with life expectancy hovering between 30-40 years of age. Now-curable diseases represented serious threats if left untreated. Accidents occurred frequently and treatment options limited considering that bandages were unsterile rags or old clothes.

White Paper: Once a Household Name – Salmon P. Chase

Salmon P. Chase in 19th Century America:
From Abolitionist Lawyer to Supreme Court Justice

Although unfamiliar to many in the twenty-first century, Salmon P. Chase was very much a household name to those living in the United States during the 19th Century.

Salmon Chase was among the most influential Americans of his century with a public service career as an Ohio Senator and Governor, Secretary of the Treasury during the Civil War, and finally as Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

This new White Paper presents contemporary articles from many of Accessible Archives’ rich historical newspaper and periodical collections documenting Salmon P. Chase’s rise to public prominence through his work for the rights of fugitive slaves and the antislavery movement. It is the story of a man at the center of the fight for racial justice in mid-19th Century America.

At his death, one eulogist noted,  “…he was distinguished for great ability and great devotion to duty. Conspicuous among his many claims to popular and lasting regard were his early, continued, and effective labors for the universal freedom of man.”
