Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anthony Benezet, or Antoine B n zet (January 31, 1713 - May 3, 1784), was an American educator and abolitionist. Anthony Benezet was born in Saint-Quentin, France, on 31 January 1713. His family were Huguenots. Because of the persecution of Protestants after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, his family decided to leave France. They moved first to Rotterdam, then briefly to Greenwich, then to London. In 1727 Benezet joined the Religious Society of Friends. In 1731 the Benezet family immigrated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in North America.show more
