Weld and the sisters considered the outbreak of the Civil War inevitable. They no longer believed that slavery could be peacefully abolished. As lifelong pacifists, the Welds and Sarah could endorse the Civil War only by seeing it as the final stand against the hated slavery system. Both sisters never hesitated to commit themselves fully to the Northern cause, despite their constant awareness of the inevitable suffering and destruction the war must bring to their homeland. The sisters and Weld were undeterred and carried on in their fight for years to come.
