Carlos Guerrero December 8 2015 Professor Eric Schlereth History 1301 – Section 006 William Lloyd Garrison William Lloyd Garrison was an American journalist who was well known for published newspaper titled, The Liberator. William Lloyd Garrison was a tremendous advocate for the abolishment of slavery. One of William Lloyd Garrison’s major beliefs was that the U.S. Constitution was the result of a terrible bargain between freedom and slavery. He called the Constitution a “covenant with death” and “agreement with hell.”
Ira Berlin's “”I Will Be Heard!” : William Lloyd Garrison and the Struggle Against Slavery” shows there are a few large influences which help steer William Lloyd Garrison's vehement opinions regarding abolition and equal treatment of blacks. They include; his evangelical faith, his “exuberant idealism that had it roots in the radicalism of the American Revolution,” and most importantly his partnership with Benjamin Lundy(Berlin). Lundy had the experience of years on the road visiting slave states and brought an appreciation to Garrison about “the evil that was chattel bondage”(Berlin). Lundy's influence on Garrison is important because he delivered first hand knowledge and visualizations of the horror of slavery to Garrison.
Abraham Lincoln did believe that status quo should be maintained because of his belief that slave states should remain slave states and free states should remain free states, that slavery should not extend into states that it is not already in. In a letter to Alexander H. Stephens, Lincoln assures the people of the South that there is no cause to fear that his “Republican administration would, directly or indirectly, interfere with the slaves, or with them about the slaves” (12). He is telling them that they will be allowed to keep their status on slaves, and that they should not worry that his administration will change that. This will therefore make the nation partially slave. But it will also be partially free as well; all new states/territories
1) The abolitionists at the convention believed that their work continued on with the Revolution. Since they talked about the wage war against their oppressors in order to be free and the concept of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness (page 310). This can allude to the American Revolution and they are using that similar approach to address slavery and why it should be abolish using those similar ideas from the Revolution such as their rights. 2) In the North, there 's this physical toil requisite.

hroughout the mid-nineteenth century in the United States, the reform movements that swept through the nation led to a great expansion of democratic ideas through increased rights and the betterment of the quality of life. Since the birth of the US through the early nineteenth century, the primary goal of all citizens and governmental leaders was to establish a solidified nation and to secure the laws and rights outlined in the Declaration of Independence and later, the US Constitution. Jumping forward to the 1820s, the young country faced numerous challenges to the prosperity of its citizens, bringing forth a slew of reform movements to do just that. One of the main reform movements to ravage the country was that of civil rights. As slavery
Slavery Slavery has proved itself to be one of the most gruesome and unnerving events in the history of the planet, on par with the Holocaust. Due to this issue, many men, women, and children have fought and are still fighting for their basic human rights and yearn to be equal due to this incident in our history. With this in mind, slavery, a horrific event which started in the early 1600’s, was perpetrated against African natives and both its influence and importance has spread into the current day. Although slavery is banned today in America, it still goes on today. Slavery, of course, has been around since BC/AD times but it wasn't until “1619 in Jamestown, Virginia that 20 captive African natives were sold into slavery in the Americas”(http://www.pbs.org/wnet/slavery/timeline/1619.html).

There are many movements associated with Frederick Douglass’ speech, including the abolitionist movement. Abolitionist ideas became prominent in Northern churches and politics beginning in the 1830s until 1870. The goal of the abolitionist movement was immediate emancipation of all slaves and ending racial discrimination and segregation. Abolitionists differed from moderate anti-slavery advocates; they wanted to abolish slavery completely not minimally. An obstacle of this movement was the westward expansion that took place in the North after 1840, eventually leading to Civil War.
Also, many Texans believed that abolitionists were constantly trying to interfere with slavery. Abolitionists were always suspected of causing trouble, so as a result they had to be careful. The same story related to the supposed attempt of an African American child trying to blow up some houses in the Weekly Telegraph claimed that, it was likely that the African American child was helped out by white people. There were abolitionists in the town who willingly helped African Americans.
