The 1830s were the heyday of the formation of anti-slavery societies. Associations were established at the town, county and state levels. This is a partial report about the formation of the Franklin County, Massachusetts, Anti-Slavery Society which was established on December 8, 1836. The society was to be an auxiliary to the state anti-slavery society. The aim of the society was to abolish slavery through constitutional means and to combat public prejudice against African-Americans. 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.
