Excerpt from William Lloyd Garrison, Vol. 2: A Centenary Address

The Oregon country has within the past days brought to a close a centenary celebration of national character and ex tent, commemorative of a splendid pioneering feat, the achieve ment of Lewis and Clark, who one hundred years ago under the inspiration of Thomas Jefferson fared forth into the wilderness, and, beating their way through the trackless wastes, added to the territory of the nation an area imperial in value and almost continental in scope. It does the American people little honor that while the Louisiana purchase of Jefferson and the Lewis and Clark journey of exploration and conquest have found ample commemoration, the citizenship of the land knows not or little cares that December tenth 1905, is the centenary of the birth of one of the noblest of Americans, one of the hardiest pioneers of the spirit, one of the greatest benefactors of a race, and therefore of the race, - William Lloyd Garrison.

Like Lewis and Clark, Garrison was a pioneer, an explorer, a hero, a benefactor. While the exploration of Lewis and Clark lasted two years, Garrison's was the quest of a lifetime, a longer than thirty years' warfare with the terrible forces of slavery. The undertaking of Garrison was fraught with greater peril, for while Lewis and Clark set forth to face the dangers of forest and plain, after having equipped themselves with every weapon which foresight and means could command.
