Faneuil Hall rejected for speech by Henry Ward Beecher

Faneuil Hall Again Refused      The City Government of Boston has again refused the use of Faneuil Hall for a public meeting. A petition signed by two hundred legal voters, asking for its use for the purpose of hearing an address upon the Union, by Rev. Henry Ward Beecher, was rejected by the Board of Aldermen, at its last meeting. (Liberator, June 6,, 1851, pg 3)
