The Slaveholder's Prayer...



Item # 568274

March 15, 1861

THE LIBERATOR, Boston, March 15, 1861  While abolitionist anti-slavery themed content is found throughout this issue, perhaps the most interesting item is the satirical, "Slaveholder's Prayer", which takes several columns of the back page.  Additional content includes, "The Designs of Redpath, John Brown, Jr., Fred. Douglass, &c - A Negro Army to be Formed", "Inherent Sinfulness of Slavery", "The Boasted Land of the Free", and much more.  See images for additional content.

A full-size, 4 page newspaper, in unusually good condition (see images).  Also note the terrific masthead of this famous anti-slavery title. The ornate woodcut in the masthead features three scenes: a slave auction, an image of Jesus breaking the bonds of the oppressors, and a family about to depart for their journey to emancipation. Much of the content concerns slavery and the anti-slavery movement. Edited by the famed emancipator, William Lloyd Garrison.
