    • Who   Were   They?
    • They were regular people like you and me . . .
    •  
      • that wanted to take a stand
    •  
      • in America and fight against slavery.

      • Abolitionism in America came . . .
    •  
      •   in the 1830's when

      •    three men ...

      •  
      •  
      •  
      •  
    •  
      • Arthur Tappan
      •  
      •  
    •  
      • and Lewis Tappan
      •  
    •  
      •  
      • came  together. . .
    •  
      •   and decided that slavery in America  must stop.
    •  
      • Especially when so many peoples lives were filled with fear and saddness.
      •  
    •  
      • Those people were slaves
      •  
    •  
      • Earning little or no pay.
      •  
    •  
      • This was not right.
      •  
    •  
      • They achieved a lot.
    • Acheivments  
    •  
      • They united many people despite the color of their skin.
    •  
      • Skin color didn't matter , 
    •  
      • because all the organizations and groups were all fighting for the same thing.
    •  
      •   In fact, by 1838. . .
    •  
      • there were over 1,350 anti- slavery societies
    •  
      • . . . with almost 250,000 members,
      • most of which were women.
    •  
      • It may seem like you could do anything with all those people. . .
    •  
      • but there were many issues. . .
    •  
      • like protesters, government, Political views etc.
    •  
      • In the end. . .
    •  
      • everything began to fall into place.
    • How did they do it?  
    •  
      • They used a number of different stratagies.
