Anti-Abolitionists By: Stephanie Durbin Wesley Bolin Monica Deng Key People • Almost all white southerners as well as many white northerners believed in slavery. Most of them feared the threat of the abolitionists in the social system. Unfortunately apparently none of the anti- abolitionists were important enough to be documented. Poor souls. Goals and Beliefs • Their goal was to keep slavery. • The anti-abolitionists believed that the practice of slavery was moral and that the white race was better than all others. • They tried to achieve their goals by starting riots and causing commotion throughout cities with a large population of abolitionists. Lasting Impact • The anti-abolitionist mobs were the violent expression of a sentiment that many other white Americans shared. • This picture shows how the anti-abolitionists thought that one day white men would have to do the labor the slaves previously endured. This is one of the main reasons they were against it.
