Benjamin Lundy was an American Quaker abolitionist from New Jersey who established several anti-slavery newspapers and worked for many others. He traveled widely seeking to limit the expansion of slavery, and in seeking to establish a colony to which freed slaves might be located, outside of the United States. Lundy was also a leading voice in denouncing the Texas Revolution as a method to perpetuate slavery in Texas in defiance of the laws of Mexico banning slavery.
