On this day
Anti-Slavery Society of Canada was formed - Feb 26, 1851
Abolitionism grew in Canada throughout the 1850s–1860s. As more escaped slaves fled across the border, sympathizers formed organizations and committees to influence public opinion and help freedom-seekers make their way north. The Anti-Slavery Society of Canada was formed "to aid in the extinction of Slavery all over the world."
