Garrison begun his adulatory as a journalist before getting involved in the Abolition. In 1830 he begun his own abolitionist paper known as The Liberator. In 1833 Garrison formed the American Antislavery Society, a organization dedicated to achieving abolition. He was a vital part in achieving abolition.
Sojourner is the self given name for Isabella Baumfree who was born into a slave family. In 1843 she changed her name and dedicated her life to Methodism and the abolition of slavery. She began to tour the country speaking to large crowds about women's rights and slavery. Her most famous speech came in Ohio which was known as the "Ain't I a Women" speech.
The main impact of the Abolition Movement was that it helped bring an end to slavery. Of course, the Civil War was the main factor in the abolishment of slavery, but if not for the abolitionists there would have been less animosity between the North and South. Ultimately, the actions of men and women during the movement helped bring Slavery to the forefront as a real issue, and led to its demise.
