The Abolition Traitors

February 28, 1862

Under the Refuge of Oppression column, there are three items with the heading, “Traitors”.   One of these, is from the Greenfield Democrat, and is devoted to “Garrison”.

It indicates that Garrison spoke recently at Washington Hall.  “The audience was not large, and of those present, many of whom were from out of Greenfield, we presume the majority were impelled to attend by a curiosity somewhat like that, which, though not commendable, always prevails to see notorious villains, and to the “dying confessions” of malefactors on the gallows…….”
