VO. XXXV / NO.29 / WHOLE NO. 1798, DATED BOSTON, JULY 21, 1865.  William Lloyd Garrison, Editor. 4 pp., 6 columns, measuring 25 x 17.25”. Lightly soiled at the margins, and the upper left corner, with fold marks, and light chipping & small minor tears along fold-lines. Else VG, and entirely legible.

The lead cover article contains the speech of radical Republican Henry Wilson, US senator from Massachusetts, at a meeting of the Colored National Monument Association of Washington, July 4, 1865. Other pieces contain extracts of letters written from various parts of the south, all in support of Federal efforts to reconstruct the south while protecting freedmen and expanding their rights. Founded in 1831, The Liberator was the predominant Abolitionist newspaper in the run up to the Civil War. With slavery abolished by the 13th Amendment to the US Constitution, editor Garrison considered his mission complete, and closed down the Liberator in January 1866.

Intact copies of The Liberator are hard to come by, and are highly collectible.
