Trina Michelle Robinson included an insightful post about today's auction of Printed & Manuscript African Americana on her blog, The Passage Project, yesterday.
In her write up, Robinson highlighted slave owner Marcus Claudius Marcellus Hammond's family Bible, which includes handwritten records of his slaves' births, marriages and deaths (above).
And, a WWII-era poster with an image of Abraham Lincoln that reads "This World Cannot Exist Half Slave and Half Free. Buy War Bonds" (above).
