PROTECTION TO SLAVE PROPERTY. SPEECH OF HON. A.G. BROWN, OF MISSISSIPPI, IN DEFENCE OF HIS PROPOSITION FOR IMMEDIATE CONGRESSIONAL PROTECTION TO SLAVE PROPERTY IN THE TERRITORIES, WITH THE REPLY OF SENATOR FITCH. DELIVERED IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES MARCH 6, 1860.

Washington: 1860. 30, [2 blank] pp, disbound. Clean. Very Good.

Senator Brown argues that slaves are property; that the Constitution protects the owners of this particular type of chattel to the same extent as other property holders; that slave owners are thus free to take their slaves, like any other property, to any of the common territories; and that Congress is constitutionally barred from preventing their doing so.
