More on my Tour of the Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims

History: Plymouth Church was founded in 1847 by transplanted New Englanders. 21 men and women founded the church in Brooklyn Heights. One was Henry Ward Beecher. He was an abolitionist born in 1813. In his sermons he also supported women’s rights!

From Maureen – People who wanted to “abolish” (or do away with or end) slavery in the United States were called “Abolitionists.”
