DiffsEdit

HistoryIsAWeapon doesn't list the final two verses of the closing poem, has out of the common way, for me. It is true... instead of out of the common way, for it is true... - but seems to have other, less likely, errors as well so is not likely as reputable.

Actually, an OCR-ed version from a printed book seems to suggest that it's "Fourth of July" not "Fourth [of] July", and the alternate sentence structure for "Out of the common way" - if that's any help. Sherurcij Collaboration of the Week: Portal:Branch Davidians 08:20, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

In addition to the pamphlet, a version of this speech was published in the Frederick Douglass' Newspaper also in 1852.

Recently, the Library of Congress has digitized scans of 568 issues of Frederick Douglass Newspapers. It includes the issue that published the speech. --Ashawley (talk) 08:49, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
