The Hunter-Lincoln emancipation controversy...
Item # 662853
May 30, 1862
THE LIBERATOR, Boston, May 30, 1862 A very famous anti-slavery newspaper published by the noted emancipator William Lloyd Garrison. The ornate engraving in the masthead features three scenes: a slave auction, an image of Jesus breaking the bonds of the oppressors, and a slave family about to depart for their journey to emancipation.
This issue has much content concerning the General Hunter emancipation proclamation controversy. President Lincoln was quick to negate it, with some anger at Hunter for issuing the proclamation without Lincoln's consent. Related editorial articles include: "Proclamation of Gen. Hunter" "The President's Proclamation" "Gen. Hunter's Order" "Hunter" "The President And Gen. Hunter" "Emancipation In The South" "The President's Proclamation" "The Support of Slavery Treason". Great to have such content in this anti-slavery newspaper.
Other articles include: "Surrender of Slaves By the Army" "Opinions of the Pro-Slavery Press" "The Call Upon Mass. for More Troops" "Details of Recent Events at New Orleans" and so much more.
Four pages, archival repair at the top of the spine affects no text, nice condition.
