Best Answer

They definitely abhorred slavery. The Republican party was started in part to keep slavery from expanding. Lincoln's cabinet was pretty much filled with Republicans. Within Lincoln's cabinet, the secretaries of Treasury and War, Salmon P. Chase and Edwin M. Stanton, respectively, were Radicals Republicans. Radical Republicans not only wanted to keep slavery out of new states, they were for the war with the South, and for the emancipation of slaves.

Who worked to abolish slavery in England in the 1800s?

William Wilberforce played a significant role in the abolishment of slavery in England during the 1800s. He created petitions signed by hundreds of thousands of brits who believed in the abolishment of slavery, this petition was monumental in Wilberforce's success. Women also helped the abolishment of slavery in England. They worked a long side Wilberforce encouraging him to continue his work and demand more rights for these slaves. These women were the people who made the abolishment of slavery happen as fast as it did because they weren't content with "gradual abolition" which is what the house of commons granted Wilberforce.
