|William Lloyd Garrison (1805-1879)|
|This future abolitionist and New England native was so homesick when his mother moved him to Baltimore as a youth that he returned to Massachusetts alone to work as an apprentice editor. Here, the young Garrison was awakened to the abolitionist cause by a Quaker. At the age of 24 he gave his first anti-slavery speech, and the very next year founded the reknowned anti-slavery newspaper, The Liberator. Garrison was often a difficult, uncompromising man, whose zealous tactics often drew the ire of fellow abolitionists - as when he pronounced the Constitution "a covenant with death and an agreement with hell." His major works include Thoughts on African Colonization (1832), Sonnets and Other Poems (1843), and Selections from Writings and Speeches (1852.)|
