Garrison attacked the morality of slavery and attacked anyone who condoned or enabled it. His views were very unpopular in all parts of the nation, not just the South. Garrison's life was constantly threatened. He was yelled at by opponents and was even dragged through the streets of Boston with a rope around his neck.
