The National Anti-Slavery Standard was the American Anti-Slavery Society's official newspaper. It was published from 1840 to 1870. This ode was written in response to the passage of the 13th amendment to the Constitution abolishing slavery which was passed by the House of Representatives on January 31, 1865. It had already been passed by the Senate on April 8, 1864, and was ratified by the states in December, 1865. The writer was in New Bern, North Carolina, a city that had seen much action during the Civil War.
