Thomas Wentworth Higginson (1823-1911)

He was a minister, social reformer, soldier, and an author. Higginson was one of the "secret six" abolitionists who raised money for John Brown's planned slave insurrection at Harpers Ferry. He was colonel of the First South Carolina Volunteers, composed of slaves freed by Union forces, thereby becoming commander of the first federally authorized African-American regiment. He also had a correspondence with Emily Dickinson that spanned twenty-four years.
