The Liberator

 

Page 1 of the Liberator Newspaper

The Liberator was created by William Lloyd Garrison and was devoted to the anti-slavery movement.  Frederick Douglas was published in this newspaper, and interestingly enough, it was through this newspaper that Garrison and Douglas’s friendship began to collapse.  Garrison and Douglas were at odds concerning the U.S. Constitution.  Garrison held the belief that it was a pro-slavery document, while Douglas believed it could be used against slavery.  Garrison wrote about his frustration with Douglas in the Liberator, and the friendship was never reconciled.
