This essay explores the nature of the anti-abolition sentiment in Cincinnati, Ohio, through an analysis of a short lived anti-abolition organization and newspaper. The two institutions developed in response to the race riot of 1841 and attempted to address the social and economic concerns of certain Cincinnati citizens.
