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]

The History of Blackwood’s Magazine (Maga) - The History of Blackwood’s Magazine (Maga) Literary Magazines have had a tremendous impact on American and British culture in the 19th and early 20th centuries. One magazine, in particular, has gradually changed the way the world sees itself. Blackwood’s Magazine, also known as Maga, was founded in 1817 as a Tory rival to the Whig Edinburgh Review. The reason for the unusual nickname is that William Blackwood, the creator of the magazine, is said to have taken home the first number of his new magazine, and presented it to his wife with the words, “there's ma Magazine.” In affectionate parody, the journal thereafter became known as 'Maga' to all of Blackwood's associates and contributors....   [tags: Exploratory Essays Research Papers]
