The first and most identifiable image of the 19th century abolitionist movement was a kneeling African man. This illustration of a slave in shackles was published in 1835 as the heading of a broadside on which appeared John Greenleaf Whittier's poem, "My Countrymen in Chains!" This image was widely circulated in antislavery publications in America.
