Many more fought for slavery's end than defended it pre-war. The reason teh Southeners defended slavery was because of the pride...

Re: Marcus Garvey Was A Colonialist

Marcus Garvey supported a Back-To-Africa movement which supported African-Americans moving to Africa and using Liberia as a home state. Of course, knowing the history of Liberia, this translated to establishing African-American settlements even against the will of the Native West Africans. African-American settlers into Liberia behaved very similarly to European colonialists. They displaced the natives against their will, and used Western backing to establish Western social order.
