The Southern Address and Frederick Douglass’ Response

“The American Civil War” blog has collected some great primary source materials. Two recent ones are “The Southern Address,” from His Satanic Majesty, John C. Calhoun [read it here] followed by a response published by the abolitionist Frederick Douglass in his journal, “The North Star” [read it here].

I highly recommend both these posts to all serious students of the war.



  1. Thanks for posting this. Turns out that my link to the “Southern Address” is broken, so I am going to use this text to reconstruct it. I’ll also add the Douglass piece and give both you and the other sites credit.

    1. Glad to be of service, Jim.
