Published by Prologue Magazine
In the 1850s, slave-owner Oscar J.E. Stuart inquired about an invention his slave had developed, and whether, since he owned the slave, if he could claim the invention as his own. Thus begins an intriguing march between technological development and the progress of rights in this vintage Prologue article.

Prologue and the National Archives are honoring the 150th anniversary of the Civil War by making the old war new again: from China's involvement in the conflict to the soldier who enlisted in place of Abraham Lincoln.
