The Liberty Banner

A small, unpretentious sheet, advocating the abolition of slavery-The Liberty Banner -made its first appearance in the Spring of 1846; a most unfavorable time, and advocating a principle which both the great parties, the Democrats and the Whigs, were violently opposing. Its editor was C. B. Waite. The paper was printed in the office of the Upper Mississipian. It was published only a few months.
