After thirty-five years of anti-slavery efforts under William Lloyd Garrison, the Liberator ceases publication

The Liberator, perhaps the most famous anti-slavery publication in American history, had been founded in January 1831 under the editorship of William Lloyd Garrison.  Thirty-five years later, with the abolition of slavery won, Garrison announced in his final column that the paper would be closed. The Nation, still publishing today, is considered to be its successor.  (By John Osborne)
