Best Answer

In 1829, the ever controversial William Lloyd Garrison wrote a story accusing Francis Todd of mistreating slaves on his ship (Todd was a slave trader/shipper) in Lundy's Genius of Universal Emancipation. He was found for libel and spent 49 days in jail because he wouldn't apologize.

Another source reports that his time in jail was due to the fact he could not post bail.

Garrison is famous for founding the American Anti-Slavery Society.
