Anti-Slavery Issue and Children's Magazines: 1820-1860 - Anti-Slavery Issue and Children's Magazines: 1820-1860  By the 1820’s the issue of slavery in the southern states had become fraught with controversy. It was by no means a clear-cut difference between Northern and Southern states; many Southerners were against it and many Northerners tolerated it, feeling it was a problem that the South must solve. Most early anti-slavery societies, though, arose in the North and many made efforts to spread their views by publishing. William Lloyd Garrison’s Liberator, published weekly between 1831 and 1865, had a Juvenile Department; the paper became the organ for the American Anti-Slavery Society which Garrison started in 1833.  Among the earliest children’s magazines was the Juvenile Miscellany (hereafter  JM), begun and edited by Lydia Maria Child, and published in Boston from 1826-1834....   [tags: American America History]
