“So long as anti-slavery Revolution principles continued to be shared from north to south, among free citizens, slave owners, and slaves alike, the American Revolution would continue to spread its freedom and put slavery on course of ultimate extinction.”


Slavery has been around since the beginning of human history. It was practiced among the native peoples of north America before and after Europeans arrived, and it was legal in every American colony in the years prior to the American Revolution. Then a great historic change began, a revolution in the hearts and minds of the British colonists that would eventually make them Americans. This revolution was at its heart an anti-slavery movement.
