modern liberalism changed the meaning of what a liberal is. Libertarians do not want to associate themselves with the modern day liberals, so they call themselves libertarians rather than classical liberalism.

Libertarianism is absolute adherence to the non-aggression principle, classical liberalism is a vague but strong preference for increased individual freedom in both economic and "non-economic" spheres of activity.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

They are essentially the same, though modern liberals are almost antithetical.
