Republican Campaign Text-Book, for the Year 1860 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Republican "Campaign" Text-Book, for the Year 1860 The meeting of Congress of 1774 was preceded by lively local action on the subject of Slavery. The Society of Friends, commonly called Quakers, of Pennsylvania, led the way, and in 1775, with Ben jamin Franklin as President, made the first attempt at a regular abolition society; the efi'ects of which were seen seen, for in 1 7 80, during the war, be it marked, Pennsylvania stopped her slave traﬂ'ic and decreed the future liberty of all persons born thenceforward within her limits. New York and other Northern States soon adopted the same policy, and some of the Southern States stopped the foreign slave-trade. With the efforts of abolition societies, Slavery was eventually declared illegal and impossible in all the Northern States.
