Mordecai Noah and his new Jewish homeland in the Niagara River... Horrors of the slave trade...



Item # 645199

October 1, 1825

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Oct. 1, 1825

* Mordecai Manuel Noah - Jewish homeland on the Niagara River
* Atrocities of the Slave Trade


Page 5 has a nice half page article: "Ararat" which is about the plans for the famous Mordecai Manuel Noah, the first American-born Jew to attain national prominence (see hyperlink) to create a new homeland for the Jews on Grand Island in the Niagara River (see photos).

Also within: "The slave trade is prosperous, with all its horrors...that three vessels, under American colors, are on the coast...had 132 human victims on board! But justice overtook the villains--the slaves rose & executed all the crew except the captain...This trade is piracy & punishable with death..." and more (see photos).
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, very nice condition.
