Movement that wanted to end slavery?
The movement to end slavery was called the Abolitionist Movement
In the early 1830's the anti-slavery abolitionist movement became an active minority movement to end slavery in the United States. While many Americans at the time in the North did not favor slavery, they accepted it as part of the South's culture. Many Americans believed that the immediate and total end of slavery, as the abolitionists wanted would cause a huge economic and social disruption.
