WILLIAM LLOYD GARRISON The abolitionist signed his name on this 4¼x¾ page Signature: "Wm. Lloyd Garrison". 4¼x¾ ruled paper. 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 toned. Irregular cut edges. Mounting remnants on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
