The Anti-Slavery Bugle

This paper was first published in Lisbon, Ohio, on June 29, 1845. Its motto was “No Union With Slaveholders.” The paper published Sojourner Truth’s 1851 “Ain't I a Woman” Speech. The Bugle stood in strong opposition to papers representing the politics of Whigs, Democrats and Republicans, pro-slavery and others. It stopped publishing in 1863.
