Ruchames, The Abolitionists, p. 24) The abolitionist crusade was led by Garrison and Wendell Phillips, who were joined by the Quaker poet John Greenleaf Whittier and the Boston writer Lydia Maria Child: Garrison founded the New England Antislavery Society in 1831 and the American Antislavery Society in 1833, when factionalism within the New England group threatened to compromise his militant demands for immediate and unconditional emancipation and full racial equality. Frederick Douglass, the escaped former slave who had joined the group in 1841, attended an abolitionist gathering on Nantucket, where he was asked to speak of his life as a slave, and from 1841 to 1848 Douglas was a staunch Garrisonian abolitionist.
