The Abolition of Slavery

Fighting for a Free America

Series: The American Saga

By Suzanne Cloud Tapper

After the events of the American Revolution, the United States became a symbol of freedom. Its citizens were supposed to be free from tyranny and persecution, and free to live as they desired. Yet, this promise eluded the countless men, women, and children who suffered in slavery. THE ABOLITION OF SLAVERY: FIGHTING FOR A FREE AMERICA tells the story of abolitionists, both men and women and black and white, who risked all for emancipation and a country that was truly free.
