Actually New Jersey was the last state in the north to officially abolish slavery, and that was 1804. Did people continue to own slaves? Yes, as it was a gradual abolition that lasted decades for the slaveowners who owned slaves at the time of abolition in 1804. But the slave trade in the north was over by 1804. My point is valid. The north, from almost the inception of our country, attempted to abolish slavery.
