From John Adams to the women who supported abolition, this volume provides a comprehensive history of the abolitionist movement. Beginning with a historical explanation of the African slave trade and its role in American history, Abolitionism explores every important person, event, and issue that helped push the North and South closer to the Civil War. This book also includes colorful sidebars featuring primary resource documents like the Gettysburg Address and narratives from Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin.
