WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON The social reformer signed this handwritten quote espousing his opposition to slavery Autograph Quotation signed: "Wm. Lloyd Garrison", 4¾x2¼ lined sheet. In full: "Liberty for each, for all, and For ever!" William Lloyd Garrison (1805-1879), one of the most prominent members of the anti-slavery movement, was famous for his "freedom slogans" that focused on the evils of slavery. His most renowned statement appeared in the premier issue of "The Liberator" (1931-1865), a weekly journal that he steadfastly published in Boston until slavery was abolished at the end of the Civil War (1861-1865): "I am in earnest - I will not equivocate - I will not excuse - I will not retreat a single inch - and I will be heard." Garrison, who had been apprenticed at an early age to a printer in Boston, rose to an editorship as a young man. In 1829, he joined abolitionist Benjamin Lundy in Baltimore to publish the "Genius of Universal Emancipation". Jailed for his editorials, Garrison did not give up but returned to Boston to continue his fight. William Lloyd Garrison (1805-1879) was the founder and publisher (1831-1865) of the antislavery journal "The Liberator". In 1833, he founded the American Anti-Slavery Society, serving as its President from 1843-1865. Formerly a pacifist, Garrison supported the Union cause in the Civil War while urging that emancipation, not merely restoration of the Union, be its primary goal. After the Civil War, he campaigned against liquor, prostitution, and injustice in the treatment of Indians, and in favor of woman suffrage. Garrison was a complete social reformer who sought equal rights for all people, no matter their race, religion, or gender. Garrison did not always agree with his contemporary social reformers (particularly Frederick Douglass and Wendell Phillips, both of whom were close friends), by the time of his death he could look back at their friendships fondly. Lightly creased. Pinhead-size stain. Otherwise, fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 29½x19¼.
