Vol. XXV. No. 20. 4 pp., 6 columns. Exhibits fold-marks and light chipping of vertical fold-line at top margin. Founded in the 1831 by William Lloyd Garrison, the Liberator became the country’s leading abolitionist newspaper, as well as the most uncompromising. This May issue, contains much coverage of the Lincoln assassination a month earlier, as well as a critical piece on a visit by the Christian Commission to Robert E. Lee in Richmond. At the end of 1865, with the ratification of the slavery abolishing 13th Amendment, Garrison closed down the Liberator, stating that its mission had been accomplished. In protective sleeve.  [JP]
