Synopsis

The Abolitionist Movement by Tim McNeese

The abolitionist movement, which was a campaign to end the practice of slavery and the slave trade, began to take shape in the wake of the American Revolution. In the years leading up to the Civil War, the movement continued to gain strength, largely due to the determination of such leaders as William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, and John Brown. The Abolitionist Movement is a thorough exploration of this seminal movement in American history. By offering readers numerous photographs, insightful text, sidebars, a chronology and timeline, and a helpful glossary, this book makes the people and events associated with abolitionism come alive in a potent yet accessible manner.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
