Asked in US Presidents, Slavery, Benjamin Harrison

Was Benjamin Harrison anti or pro slavery?

Benjamin Harrison, 23rd president. term was 1889 to 1893. this was well after the slave/abolition period (1820s/1830s-1861), Civil war (1861-65) and Reconstruction (1865-1877). Why ask? Anyways, Harrison did next to nothing when it came to slavery since it was no longer an issue during his term. He tried (unsuccessfully), however, to aid freed slaves' children in education as a senator (of indiana). he believed that doing so would help them become more socially and economically equal with whites.
