Death: 7 NOV 1837 in murdered, Alton, Madison Co., Illinois, martyr to freedom of the press 3 4
Burial: 9 NOV 1837 Alton Cemetery, Alton, Madison, IL
Note:
Elijah Lovejoy was born in Albion, ME was received his early education at district school #1. He later attended China Academy and graduated from Colby College in 1826. He was the principal of the China Academy in 1826. He studied for the ministry at Princeton Theological Seminary and was ordained in 1834. He went to St. Louis and joined the staff of the St. Louis Observer, 1833-1836. There he began writing frequent articles against slavery; as a result of these articles, he was asked to resign from the St. Louis Observer, but a new owner asked him to stay on as an editor and the paper was moved across the river to Alton, IL in 1836 and renamed the "Alton Observer."

There the press was destroyed twice and, finally, the third press was seized by a mob, broken up and dumped into the Mississippi River. The Anti-Slavery Society of Illinois was formed and they bought another press which arrived 6 Nov. 1837. It was as a result of trying to guard this press that Elijah Lovejoy was shot and killed on the eve of 7 Nov. 1837, two days before his 35th birthday. His brother Owen and a few friends buried him in an unmarked grave on top of a bluff overlooking the Mississippi on 9 Nov. 1837. "A newspaper clipping found in an old scrapbook states that no words were said at the grave except a prayer by the Minister. There were no flowers, honors or eulogies. 'Liberty of Speech' was buried in silence.'"

60 years after his death, on 8 Nov. 1897, a $30,000 monument was erected in Alton to Elijah's memory. It is a 90 ft. granite column tooped by a bronze statute of Victory 17 feet high. It is inscribed with several quotations from his writings against slavery, commemorating "the first armed resistance to the agression of the slave power in America."

Over the cellar of the old Lovejoy Homestead in Albion, ME a monument has been placing honoring Elijah Lovejoy and Colby College has also erected a monument in his honor, a quartz stone from the homestead's foundation marked with a tablet. In 1959, the college named a new social studies and humanties building for Elijah, called the Lovejoy Building. (From "Albion on the Narrow Gauge," Ruth Crosby Wiggin, 1964)
