Even as this great country began, slavery began its downward spiral and abolitionism started to come to the forefront. From the time the Declaration of Independence was signed, abolitionism was on the rise in the United States of America. Between the years of 1776 and 1865 many tactics were used by abolitionists to end slavery.
