On the Fact that (According to Philosopher and Historian, Donald Livingston) as Late as the 1830s, Many of the Main Abolitionist Societies Were in the South

Not that all of these organizations were coming from a moral perspective, mind you (many of them being poor whites - the Hinton Helper types - who didn't want to compete with slave labor and who also agreed with Lincoln on colonization), but this is yet another interesting aspect of the North versus South narrative that tends to get buried (not politically correct enough, I would assert) and it's a shame.
