The Pleasure Boat

Summary
The Pleasure Boat was a reform journal published in Portland, Maine during the mid-nineteenth century by the Quaker reformer and journalist Jeremiah Hacker. History Over the first seventeen years of publication (1845–1862) it went by the names The Pleasure Boat and The Portland Pleasure Boat; and some years later was revived under the new title The Chariot of Wisdom and Love (1864–1866). Hacker, after moving to New Jersey in 1866, briefly returned to the "Boat" theme and published the short-lived journal Hacker's Pleasure Boat (1867). Editorial stance In all of his publications, Hacker was an outspoken journalist who promoted anarchist and radical causes. The Pleasure Boat railed against organized religion, government, prisons, slavery, land monopoly, and warfare. It supported abolition, women’s rights, temperance, and vegetarianism. The newspaper was an early proponent of anarchism, free thought, and prison reformer. Unhappy with how juvenile offenders were
