The conclusion compares the fiftieth anniversaries of the abolition of Russian serfdom and American slavery in the early twentieth century. Russians and Americans celebrated these occasions through public ceremonies, the construction of monuments, the production of commemorative objects, and the publication of books and articles. In both countries, people expressed different opinions about the causes and consequences of emancipation, revealing that abolition’s meaning remained contested.
