This is a 20 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Abolitionist Movement just prior to the American Civil War. The presentation covers the background of the Abolitionist movement and the top key players o the movement. All of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
There were many political movements and events taking place in the country that would have profound implications on the future of the United States. Most of these were set in motion between 1830 and 1860, just prior to the Civil War. Many of these revolved around slavery and issues related to it, others had to do with the ever expanding continent and how the land would be distributed and others had to do with political control and direction.
The presentation covers the following:
The Abolitionist Movement
The Anti-Slavery Society
Arguments For Slavery
Arguments Against Slavery
William Lloyd Garrison
Map of the Underground Railroad
Harriett Beecher Stowe
Henry David Thoreau
