Description

A manumission was the legal document wherein an owner freed an enslaved person. As Quakers became convinced that the institution of slavery was contrary to their religious beliefs, they began to free their slaves. In 1773, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting made owning enslaved people a disownable offense.
