How did Slavery End?

Many colonists in the North wanted slavery abolished.
Southern slaves would try to escape from their owns and travel to the North
Slavery was a big contradiction in America. Many people believed “All men are created equal” was false because of slavery.
The American Civil War from 1861-1865 smashed the 254 year old system of slavery in the South and changing the Southern society.
The 13th Amendment made slavery illegal in America.
By: Rachel Jurus, Madison Morris and Kelsey Ludes
Abolition refers to the act of putting an end to something by law.
The purpose of this movement was to free the slaves in the south who were forced to work under cruel conditions.
In the 1800’s slavery was slowly coming to an end, due to the fact that people were realizing how inhuman slavery was.
The south relied on slave labor economically, so it was not willingly that they let this movement pass.
