Abolitionists were not just men. Some of the most active abolitionists were women. The Anti-Slavery Alphabet written in 4-line verse was created in 1846 to help raise both awareness and money by the abolitionists.
The Anti-Slavery Alphabet is an ideal primary source historic document to share with students about the abolition movement. It is both simple and profound in its ability to convey the need for the abolition of slavery.
The text has not been altered at all, however more of the alphabet letters have been placed on each page to make it easier for making student copies.
