...Abolitionism Though anti-slavery and abolitionist movements sprouted in the early 19th century, the movements faced tough resistance from many quarters, especially for proposing that black be treated on the same platform as whites. Abolitionist movements faced stiff resistance that sometimes degenerated into violence as authorities across states marshaled forces to disperse and halt the increasing anti- slavery campaigns among the groups.
