The struggle for the abolition of slavery was the task of many.

Many leaders have


long since emerged with the idea of ending slavery. But you can say that each of
them with their ideas and contributions were what opened the way to do what never
thought it would end: SLAVERY.
So you can start by saying that there were many ways and ways to help with
abolition. Many collaborated with the underground train, (IMAGE) this was a
mechanism used as a stop system on the way of the blacks towards freedom.
Those who had a lot of participation in this type of mechanism were called
CUQUEROS: This was a society of friends, a religious movement originating in
England, which later moved to the United States during the 18th and 19th centuries
(PHOTOS), the which were those that spread the equality between the individuals
and questioned the slavery, although this one was commonly accepted in the
society.
Others helped to escape with their money and resources to many slaves, as the
case of Tomas Gareet, (PHOTO). Who helped escape more than 2,700 slaves.

The question is how the abolition of slavery was achieved?


There were many abolitionist movements, among them were the so-called:
Persuasive action: this movement was made up of writers and thinkers of the 19th
century who demonstrated against the government for allowing slavery, which
questioned the role of government as a representative of individuals.
The spokesmen for these ideas were philosophers like HENRY D. THOREAU
(PHOTO), RALPH WALDO EMERSON (PHOTO)

Many abolitionists thought that slavery would end peacefully, when society realized
that slaves were people of moral height.
As is the case of WILLIAM WELLS BROWN (PHOTO AND WILLIAM LLORD
GARRISON (PHOTO)
Those who believed in emancipation through moral conviction. These moral
persuasions were carried out through speeches. And articles, in the newspaper as
the LIBERATOR, EDITED BY GARRISON. (PHOTO OF THE NEWSPAPER)
For them, writers and journalists wrote stories about the life of slaves (SEEKING
IMAGE AND REFLECTING THE LIFE OF THE SLAVES), with the intention of
convincing society that the enslaved men were women equal to whites in their
human quality.

On the other hand, there was political action: Towards the end of the 1830s, the idea
of political action gained ground. In 1839 the Liberty party was established, which,
although it was not popular, had the mission to direct the abolitionist intentions in a
political action. (PHOTO OF THESE POLITICS) There is also the physical action:
for these, emancipation was possible only through physical action, as the slave
HARRIEL TUBMAN (PHOTO) who escaped to freedom through the so-called
underground railway and helped escape through this route to hundreds of slaves,
including his own family. Finally, the claims went so far as to divide the country during
the secession war (IMAGE OF THIS WAR), whose cause, although multiple, was
due in part to the refusal of southern confederate states to renounce the slave trend.
Abolition was achieved in 1863, during the war when President Abraham Lincoln
(FOTO) signed the proclamation of emancipation, (IMAGE) declaring the liberation
of the South. But it did not affect the slaves Vivian in states of union. Finally, in 1865
was obtained in the amendment 13 to the constitution, that prohibited the institution
of the slavery in all the country.
