Henry B. Stanton endeavored for three decades to awaken a nation to a realization of the horrendous nature of the institution of human slavery. He labored in the interest of the oppressed black race until the conscience of a nation was sufficiently aroused to resist the extension of the paramount social evil of the day.

While some of the leaders of the abolitionist movement, Theodore Weld, James G. Birney, William Lloyd Garrison, Gerrit Smith, and Wendell Phillips, are perhaps more familiar names, Henry B. Stanton was one of the most important leaders of the crusade against slavery.
