Samuel Sewall, Frederick Douglass and Harriet Stowe are renowned writers of the 1880’s who used their writings to fight for the freedom of the slaves at the time. The four have been overtime referred to as the Abolitionist writers. These writers lived in a nation whose morals about the human rights were very upright and had a government that claimed to give each and every person the same fair treatment.
However, what these writers could not bear was seeing the issue of slavery go on in the American society without anybody interceding on it. In reaction to the slavery that was increasingly becoming popular every day, these writers became human rights activists and started the movements to abolish slavery. They accomplished these by publishing the writings of their own lives and how they broke from the bondage of slavery.
