Description

In 1860, slavery in America was older than the country itself. At that time, nearly four million black people were slaves in the United States. Slavery's morality was rarely publicly questioned. A small but determined few began an anti-slavery movement that would eventually change the face of the nation.


In taking on slavery, abolitionists fought a deeply ingrained system of slavery. Learn about the hidden force of the Underground Railroad, how slavery divided a nation, the path to war, and the experiences of determined men and women black and white, such as Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, and Harriet Beecher Stowe. The early African-American struggle for equality created a starting point for a system of justice in American society - Freedom Struggle is the story.
