John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892) Born: December 17, 1807, near Haverhill, Massachusetts.

Died: September 7, 1892, Hampton Falls, New Hampshire.

Buried: Union Cemetery, Haverhill, Massachusetts.

At age 22, Whittier became editor of the American Manufacturer in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1830, he began editing the Haverhill Gazette and the New England Weekly Review (Hartford, Connecticut). In 1835, Whittier was elected to the Massachusetts legislature. From 1847 to 1859, he wrote for The National Era in Washington, DC.

Whittier was influential in the anti-slavery movement, and served as secretary of the American Anti-Slavery Society. When he moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he edited the Pennsylvania Freeman. Mobs attacked him several times because of his views.

Whittier is known as America’s “Quaker poet”; his works include The Panorama, and other Poems, 1856. He also wrote almost 100 hymns.
