About this product
- DescriptionLewis Tappan (1788--1873), founder of the Journal of Commerce and the nation's first credit rating firm, is probably best kwn for his business accomplishments. His greatest achievement, however, was t finance but freedom. In the 1830s, he and his wealthy brother Arthur underwrote and inspired the Manhattan headquarters of the American Anti-Slavery Society and founded many other organizations to promote freedom, faith, and racial tolerance. As prominent historian Bertram Wyatt-Brown demonstrates in this fascinating portrait, Tappan contributed much more to the cause of liberty and equality than has yet been ackwledged.
