This is the original Gouache painting by Ron Embleton.

Two great leaders in the struggle to end slavery in the United States. Top is of course President Abraham Lincoln. The second man is Gerrit Smith.

Smith, a significant financial contributor to the Liberty Party and the Republican Party throughout his life, spent much time and money working towards social progress in the nineteenth century United States.

Besides making substantial donations of both land and money to the African-American community in North Elba, New York, he was involved in the Temperance Movement and, later in life, the colonization movement.

A staunch slavery abolitionist, he was a member of the Secret Six who financially supported John Brown's raid at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.
