ABOLITIONISTS and the ANTI-SLAVERY SOCIETY
Abolition
is the act of abolishing a practice, system, or institution.
Abolitionists
were people who favor the abolition of a practice or institution, esp. capital punishment or (formerly) slavery.

WHAT?
Abolitionist and Anti-Slavery Society's fought for the freedom of black people.
Frederick Douglas worked closely with presidents Abraham Lincoln and Benjamin Harrison to help bring about change. Douglass helped persuade Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, an action that changed the course of history and helped bring about the elimination of slavery.
John Brown led 21 men on a raid of the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia. He also helped finance the publication of David Walker's Appeal and Henry Highland's "Call to Rebellion" speech. He gave land to fugitive slaves. He and his wife agreed to raise a black youth as one of their own. He also participated in the Underground Railroad and, in 1851, helped establish the League of Gileadites, an organization that worked to protect escaped slaves from slave catchers.
WHEN?
Anti-Slavery Societies were founded in 1833 under the leadership of William Lloyd Garrison. Slavery was ended in the United States, on April 8, 1864.
