and use of Religion Garrison Stated:

“By the dissolution of the Union, we shall give the finishing blow to the slave system and then God will make it possible for us to form a true, vital, enduring, all-embracing Union, from the Atlantic to the Pacific—one God to be worshipped, one savior to be revered, one policy to be carried out—freedom everywhere to all the people, without regard to complexion or race—and the blessing of God resting upon us all!” Lets take a look at the 1st tactic (Religion) used in these 3 abolitionists speeches Tactic #1 : Garrison Stated:
