Founded by William Lloyd Garrison in 1831, The Liberator was the leading abolitionist journal of its day, ceasing publication at the end of the war following passage of the 13th amendment abolishing slavery.

Published in late June 1863, on the eve of the Battle of Gettysburg and culmination of the Union Siege of Vicksburg, this particular contains the following headlines.  “Refuge of Oppression—Speech of Montgomery Blair” (a speech which proclaimed white superiority over blacks and Indians by right of conquest, which The Liberator considered “disgraceful.”).  “Fremont in the Field”—"The Negro in Battle”—“Will Negroes Fight”—“The Democracy and Free Speech”—“The Loyal Democracy”—“The Vallandigham Issue”.

Contain references and commentary on the performance of Colonel Shaw’s black 54th Massachusetts and Col. Higginson’s 1st South Carolina regiment, as well as mention of black troops at Milliken’s bend.

Solid “Abolitionist” Liberator collectible.   [jp] [ph:L]
