THE LIBERATOR, Boston, April 22, 1864 

* Rare Anti Slavery periodical 
* Nice masthead - slave auction print

Articles include: "The Fort Pillow Murders" "The Tragedy At Fort Pillow" "The Anti-Slavery Struggle" "Value Of The Free Colored People" "What the Rebellion Means" "The Late Owen Lovejoy" "The Last Man Left in Beaufort" and more.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, a few discrete archival mends at folds with one tiny repaired fold juncture hole, bit of foxing. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
