This is a collection of scans and transcriptions of works by antebellum, abolitionist women writers. It is separated by the names of the archives where the materials were found and by the names of the collections. Two collections include transcriptions: the MacLean Collection in the Duke University section, and the Blackford Family Collection in the University of North Carolina section. The goal is to create a resource for academics and students in this field, so that they can easily access them online. I copied these documents on a 2-week trip I took to North Carolina, DC and Philadelphia on a $1,000 Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) Research Grant. I presented the research I gathered on abolitionist women at the Southern Women Writers Conference, in Georgia this past September, 2009.
