Abraham Lincoln’s tribute to his genius and determination shows how highly regarded he was by the president, even though he was not invited to the White House, as Douglass was, nor did he serve in public offices as a reward for his work in the emancipation process. However, he did hold together the militant wing of the abolitionist crusade for three decades by continuous weekly publication of The Liberator and by denouncing slavery at every opportunity. Wendell Phillips (1811-1884) was perhaps the most eloquent orator of the abolitionist lecture circuit, although Frederick Douglass was easily his rival.
