Program parallels lives of local abolitionists


“Needless to say, the experience was an indelible and life-changing one,” Costello says. “They continued their mission and sadly came to the final acceptance of Civil War as the only answer to solving the country’s dilemma of slavery and to save the union.”

With the recent PBS series “The Abolitionists” again placing Garrison in the forefront, Seldon’s program, which is being presented by the Whittier Home Association, aims to continue the discussion of two national heroes who sparked the cause of anti-slavery from the local villages of Newburyport and Amesbury.

The public is invited. A $5 donation is requested to support the continuation of the educational mission of the Whittier Museum in promoting the poet’s life and history and the maintenance of the national historic site. For more information, call the museum at 978-388-1337 or visit
