Wikipedia article




'A Sojourn in the City of Amalgamation, in the Year of Our Lord, 19--' is a dystopian novel published in New York in February 1835. It was written by Jerome B. Holgate (181293), under the pseudonym Oliver Bolokitten. The novel attempts to discredit abolitionists by depicting them as supporters of "amalgamation," or interracial marriage. Its narrator encounters a future city, Amalgamation, where whites and blacks have intermarried solely for the sake of racial equality, resulting in "moral degeneration, indolence, and political and economic decline."

The novel was self-published and printed.
