Nat Turner and Gabriel Prosser let slave revolts against white southerners. The southerners began fearing that the slaves would start a rebellion. As a consequence the laws became harsher for the fugitive slaves in the south. The northerners did not want to catch the fugitive slaves and it upset the southerners. William Lloyd garrison publishes the “liberator”- which questioned the institution of slavery as a violation of christian principles and argued for abolition.
