Nicholas Wood

Wood received his Ph.D. from the University of Virginia and has received a National Endowment for the Humanities postdoctoral fellowship at the Library Company of Philadelphia. His current research examines Americans who believed that the War for Independence established a sacred covenant mandating emancipation in return for Providential aid. He is preparing a book manuscript about the early national antislavery movement, from the Revolution into the 1830s.
