**This is an retypeset reprint edition of an historical book originally published in the 1800s. It does not advocate racial discrimination or bigotry in today's society.** The author of this book presents two propositions in the investigation of the institution of slavery as it existed in the United States: 1. Slavery is a punishment inflicted by God upon a people or nation for their wickedness; and, 2. Slavery in this country was the providentially-arranged means whereby Africa was to be lifted from her deep degradation to a state of civil and religious liberty.

Autorenporträt
Howell Cobb was born in Jefferson County, Georgia in 1815, the oldest child of John and Sarah Cobb. In 1819, his family moved to Athens, where he would later graduate from the University of Georgia in 1834. He became a lawyer in 1836, and later served as a State Representative, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Secretary of the Treasury, and also as Governor of Georgia. When the Southern States seceded, Cobb became president of the Provisional Confederate Congress, playing a key role in the drafting of the new C.S. Constitution. He went on to serve in a military capacity as Major-General in the Confederate army, finally surrendering his troops to Union forces on April 20, 1865. He died from a heart attack while vacationing in New York in 1868.
