Founded by William Lloyd Garrison, The Liberator was the nation’s leading Abolitionist newspaper through the ante-bellum and Civil War-era. With end of the war and the passage of the 13th amendment abolishing slavery it ceased publication.

Most of the front page treats and discusses at great length the arrival of British abolitionist George M. Thompson. Earlier on Thompson had followed the Liberator masthead line that the U.S. Constitution was a covenant with the Devil, and that the American political and religious institutions should be destroyed. With the coming of war and the Lincoln administration, however, the Liberator had changed its stance, dropping the U.S. Constitution & the Devil from its masthead in support of the Union war effort. Thompson and other British failed to take note, even to the point of cheering on the Confederacy, seeing the rebels as a means of bringing down the government. By 1864, American abolitionists had made the British aware of their apostasy, and Thompson had shifted his stance and come to America to make amends.

Other stories treat the distribution of confiscated Port Royal, SC, lands and the measly portion to be allotted  to Negros.  Other headlines include: “The Old Freeman of Louisiana”—“Henry Clay and Mr. Garrison”—“Mr. Mason Jones on the American War”—“The Colored School Question in Providence”—Rebel Treatment of Union Prisoners/ Narrative of Col Abel Streight”—“Another Order From Gen. Butler” (allowing integrated church services in Norfolk, VA)—“The Fugitive Slave Law.”

A solid war-time Liberator collectible. In protective sleeve, w/white card backing.   [jp] [ph:L]
