Eliza Marsh’s Book of Sentiments with Vermont Historian Kevin Thornton

Brandon was one of Vermont’s hotbeds of the anti-slavery movement in the 1830s and 1840s, where resident Eliza Marsh collected the autographs of leading abolitionists, including that of William Lloyd Garrison.
Though her book of sentiments has disappeared, Vermont historian Kevin Thornton discovered her unusual hobby and will share his research on Eliza Marsh’s life and labor.

Join Kevin at Brandon Library to learn how Eliza and other like-minded women advanced the goals of the anti-slavery movement, discuss how and why Eliza dedicated over 40 years to collecting abolitionists’ signatures, and explore the activities of the Brandon anti-slavery society, which met in Eliza’s church just a few minutes’ walk from her home.
