William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End SlaveryBook - 2007
Wilberforce (1759-1833) is often hailed as one of society's great reformers. Wilberforce's great goal was the abolition of the slave trade and of slavery in England, and "Amazing Grace" tells the true story of his remarkable life and meaningful accomplishments. He was also instrumental in passing legislation to abolish slavery in the British colonies, a victory achieved just three days before his death in 1833.
