David Walker's Appeal says fighting is both justified and will be necessary. John Q. Adams, while not a black abolitionists, foresaw that the circumstances of a war would "interfere" with slavery.

The abolition movement was heavily influenced by pacifist ideals. One source of Douglass’s break was Garrison was the move by Douglass towards the idea that slavery was unlikely to end without violence.
