Boston Abolitionists, 1831-1865

Screenshot
The Massachusetts Historical Society provides this online exhibit on the abolitionist movement in Boston, both prior to and during the Civil War. The website includes seven distinct sections, each highlighting manuscripts, photographs, and artifacts. One section touches on William Lloyd Garrison's Liberator, an important antislavery newspaper; visitors can read the entire first issue of the newspaper, which was published in 1831. In addition, the Historical Society has provided a number of scans of pamphlets, broadsides, signage, and other ephemera, which are both historically and visually interesting. This collection would be useful for anyone interested in the abolitionist movement or Massachusetts history.
