Angelina Grimké & her sister Sarah were white Southern women who supported the abolition movement. Angelina՚s moral values were drawn from her Christian beliefs and the natural rights theory as set forth in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Her greatest fame came from an 1838 letter she sent to William Lloyd Garrison and published in the anti-slavery newspaper, The Liberator. Angelina and her sister were also supporters of the women’s suffrage movement. Angelina was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1998.
This Angelina Grimké mug is part of our US Civil War series profiling participants in the War Between the States. Thousands of Confederate and Union soldiers fought in battles such as Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Cold Harbor and Petersburg. We honor their sacrifices by telling their stories.
The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history. The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton. He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia tone. The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
