The official newspaper of the American Anti-Slavery Society founded in 1840 by Lydia Maria Child and David Lee Child. The paper was published weekly until the ratification of the Fifteenth Amendment in 1870. Published in New York, and from July 22, 1855 to November 30, 1865 concurrently in Philadelphia, with the motto "Without Concealment -- Without Compromise." Naturally the paper focused on abolition with essays, debates, speeches, and reports by influential abolitionists providing an excellent primary resource for the debate over tactics. The paper also featured global reports and content related to suffrage not only for African Americans but women as well. Most issues included here are antebellum, with four issues published during the Civil War and two issues after the conclusion of conflict.
