Abolition Movement

Abolition Movement


The practice of African slavery has been described as the United States`s most shameful sin. Undoing this practice was a long, complex struggle that lasted centuries and ultimately drove America to a bitter civil war.

After an introduction that places the United States`s form of slavery into a global, historical perspective, author T. Adams Upchurch shows how an ancient custom evolved into the American South`s peculiar institution. The gripping narrative will fascinate readers, while excerpts from primary documents provide glimpses into the minds of key abolitionists and proslavery apologists. The book`s glossary, annotated bibliography, and chronology will be indispensable tools for readers researching and writing papers on slavery or abolitionists, making this text ideal for high school and college-level students.
