Summary
Mr. Howe takes a long-term view of the coming of the war as it played out in Lowell and vicinity. Because the city's economy was so dependent on cotton, there was a great deal of sympathy for the south and a hands-off attitude when it came to slavery. But simultaneously in Lowell, there was a very strong Abolitionist movement and the city served as a stop on the Underground Railroad. The presence of these two very different attitudes towards slavery within the same community created friction that manifested itself in a number of incidents. This "big picture" view allows an examination of the causes of the war through these incidents in a single community. Richard P. Howe Jr. is the Register of Deeds of the Middlesex North Registry of Deeds. He is a graduate of Providence College and Suffolk University Law School and holds an MA in History from Salem State University. Mr. Howe is the creator of richardhowe.com, a widely read blog about Lowell history and politics. He has lectured frequently on the American Civil War and it's impact on the city of Lowell and surrounding communities
