Senator Benjamin F. Wade was a well-known politician and abolitionist leader of the nineteenth century. This work looks at influences in his life that lead him to become a prominent politician in the antebellum antislavery movement. By researching his hereditary background, education, and the environment that he lived in one may gain an insight into what formed the personality and conscience of a man who came within one vote of being our eighteenth president of the United States.
