Militant Boston


Boston slave riot and trial of Anthony Burns (Boston, 1854)

James Batchelder's official death certificate, bound at the end of this pamphlet on the Burns affair, indicates the cause of death as a stab wound. Higginson acquired the pamphlet in 1888 at an auction of the coroner's estate.
