But across the East River in Brooklyn stood a bastion of anti-slavery sentiment--Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims--led by Henry Ward Beecher. He guided his congregants in a crusade against the institution. They held mock slave auctions, raised money to purchase freedom for slaves, and sent guns--nicknamed Beecher Bibles--to those struggling for a free Kansas.

Plymouth Church was not only publicly important in the fight for abolition, but was also a busy Underground Railroad Station. Once the Civil War broke out the congregation helped raise troops and supplies for the US Army. Discover this beautiful churchs vital role in the nations greatest struggle.
