NASHVILLE (BP) -- The Civil War was fought 150 years ago, but without a small band of abolitionists
driven by their Christian faith, the war might never have happened.
That's the conclusion of a three-part PBS docudrama that will premier Tuesday (Jan. 8th). It doesn't shy away from recounting the religious beliefs of abolitionists William Lloyd Garrison, John Brown, Frederick Douglass, Angelina Grimke and Harriet Beacher Stowe. They believed slavery was a sin, and they set out to cause its demise. In turn, they helped change a nation.
