All this had been done without Congressional approval, and Lincoln needed that approval to proceed further. There were some in the North who truly saw slavery as an evil that should be abolished, but the majority was not so vehemently opposed to it. They were brought by the Female Anti-Slavery Society and assigned to give parlor talks to women. In some of the northern colonies, abolition of the slave trade had a moral as well as an economic basis.
