伊莱亚.佩利许.洛夫乔伊 (Elijah Parish Lovejoy) 被一群支持奴隶制度的暴民所杀
1837117

那些报纸还来不及从船上卸下来,就有一群喝醉的暴民试图要放火烧毁存放报纸的仓库。当洛夫乔伊跑出来想要把他们赶走时,有人对他开枪了。在洛夫乔伊死后,从北部到西部,有越来越多的人参与反奴隶制度的组织。但是伊立诺政府却没有对这件意外发表任何说明,只有一位叫做亚伯拉罕.林肯的年轻伊利诺州众议员挺身而出,对这件犯罪行为表示抗议。


No sooner was the press off-loaded from the steamboat than a drunken mob formed and tried to set fire to the warehouse where it was stored. When Lovejoy ran out to push them away, someone shot him. Throughout the North and West, more people joined anti-slavery societies following Lovejoy's death. Officials in Illinois said almost nothing about the incident, with the exception of a young state representative named Abraham Lincoln, who spoke out against the crime.
