The Jew's Struggle for Religious and Civil Liberty in Maryland
M. Curlander, 1924 - 211 pagina's
Although Maryland was tolerant in regard to various Christian denominations, it discriminated against Jews, excluding them from all offices and even trying a Jew for blasphemy for disputing Christian dogma. Thomas Kennedy fought for granting the Jews equal citizenship from 1818 until the passing of his state's Jew bill in 1826, when he succeeded in overcoming antisemitic prejudice.
