This day in Jewish history / Abolitionist August Bondi is born
Riled by the injustice of slavery, August 'Anshl' Bondi fought with the abolitionist militia in Kansas before the Civil War.
July 21, 1833, is the birthdate of August Bondi, who joined and fought with the abolitionist militia set up in Kansas by anti-slavery crusader John Brown in the period before the Civil War. The Austrian-born immigrant to the United States survived the war to lead a long, productive life in his adoptive home, and left behind extensive autobiographical papers, so that he is still remembered today.
