Chapter 14
Section 4: The Movement to End Slavery

Some Americans had opposed slavery since before the country was founded.

In the 1830s, Americans took more organized action supporting abolition, a com

Some believed that African Americans should receive the same treatment as white Americans. Other abolitionists were against full political and social equality.
