Context

On 1 January, William Lloyd Garrison established the abolitionist newspaper The Liberator. The paper soon gained nationwide recognition, despite its limited circulation of 3000. It faced staunch opposition from a number of state legislatures; however, The Liberator was published for 35 years, until the end of the Civil War.
