Description

The Liberator (1831-1865) was an abolitionist newspaper founded by William Lloyd Garrison and Isaac Knapp. The newspaper called for the "Immediate and complete emancipation of all slaves." The Liberator also advocated for women's rights by printing editorials, petitions, convention calls, speeches, and other material to promote women's equality. The motto was "Our Country is the World, our Countrymen are all Mankind."

Over its 35 year run, Garrison published 1,820 issues, ending in 1865 after the end of the Civil War. This issue was the newspaper's final issue. It includes a poem by a woman identified as Carrie from Brooklyn, New York, entitled "A Farewell to the Liberator." There are also tributes to Garrison and to the paper.
