Excerpt from Fettered Freedom: Civil Liberties and the Slavery Controversy, 1830-1860
The beginnings of immediate emancipation, more popu larly referred to simply as abolition, may be dated approxi mately from the appearance of William Lloyd Garrison's Liberator in I stand, said Garrison in his first number for the immediate enfranchisement of our slave population. The idea of immediate freedom for the slave had its origin in British antislavery circles in the 'twenties, and was adopted by Garrison soon after. As interpreted by him, immediatism in volved no really ordered or practical plan; It consisted of free ing Negro slaves, and that only. The various economic, social, and political problems incidental to their emancipation never caught his interest.
