Two decades before the Civil War, Elijah Lovejoy used his newspaper to protest slavery. His beliefs were dangerous enough. Taking his cause public proved deadly as he defended press after press before losing his life to a mob. Insisting on his constitutional right to speak freely about unpopular subjects, he refused to be intimidated by those who would silence him.
A biography for young readers.
