Engrave this Quote Thy treasures of gold
Are dim with the blood of the hearts thou hast sold;
Thy home may be lovely, but round it I hear
The crack of the whip, and the footsteps of fear.
-Lydia Maria Child, From the anti-slavery song The Yankee Girl quoted in her book Slavery's Pleasant Homes, 1843 Tell a Friend
