This chapter focuses on the missionary ideas shared by those from New England who supported the African recolonization movement. It features Leonard Bacon and Lydia Sigourney and traces their motives for supporting the movement. It examines the belief that Chrsitians had a responsibility to civilize and evangelize the world, cultivating sympathy for others, and fighting slavery. According to the author, New England colonizationists saw the American Colonization Society’s efforts as an important part of a broader missionary movement.
