The 1830s were the heyday of the formation of anti-slavery societies. Associations were established at the town, county and state levels. James G. Birney (1792-1857), a noted abolitionist, spoke in Northampton, Massachusetts, on June 4, 1835. Birney was born in the slave state of Kentucky and founded the abolitionist newspaper the Philanthropist in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1836. The Hampshire Gazette commented that his remarks were more dignified and temperate than those of fellow abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison (1805-1879) and George Thompson (1804-1878), although he held the same opinions. The Greenfield Gazette and Franklin Herald was the newspaper in Greenfield, Massachusetts, from June 26, 1827 to June 27, 1837. It changed its name to the Gazette & Mercury.
