Minister to Great Britain
This chapter examines Everett’s service as US minister to Britain with a special eye towards the multiple slavery-related issues with which he and his British counterparts dealt. These included such issues as Britain’s drive for American cooperation in the abolition of the Atlantic slave trade, British liberation of American fugitive slaves headlined by the Creole case, and the American government’s drive to annex Texas. Everett continued to occupy a conservatively antislavery position, which put him in tension with President John Tyler and the Southern-friendly Secretaries of State under which he mostly worked.
