'William Lloyd Garrison trying to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston', Artist: Unknown

'William Lloyd Garrison trying to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston', c1860, (1938). In February, 1858, Emerson wrote in his Journal, It is impossible to be a gentleman and not be an Abolitionist. But conservative Northern opinion frowned severely on the activities of Abolitionist agitators. When William Lloyd Garrison tried to hold a John Brown anniversary meeting in Tremont Temple, Boston, he and his cohorts were thrown out bodily by the citizens, who subsequently held a meeting whch resolved that Bown's was a nefarious enterprise, and humbly asked their Virginia brothers to help preserve a Union so important to the interest of commerce, manufactures, and agriculture. From Adventures of America 1857-1900, by John A. Kouwenhoven [Harper & Brothers Publishers, New York and London, 1938]
