About

Newspapers played an important role in the effort to promote the political objectives of the antislavery Liberty Party in Vermont. In 1842, 1200 copies of the People’s Advocate, a Concord, New Hampshire paper, were printed in Montpelier, Vermont, to promote Liberty Party candidates. From November 1842 to 1843, the Vermont Freeman, published first by antislavery agent and lecturer Alanson St. Clair and then by Joseph E. Hood, with editorial assistance from Chester C. Briggs, was issued from Montpelier and Norwich. The two extant issues include mostly articles from other antislavery papers, with very little content specific to Vermont.
