After he gave his “Call to Rebellion” speech, he was seen as radical and became a controversial figure within the abolitionist movement. In 1864, Garnet moved to Washington D.C. to serve as a pastor for the Fifteenth Street Presbyterian Church. On February 12, 1865,  while in D.C., Garnet was chosen by President Abraham Lincoln to give a sermon (a speech given by a preacher who talks about religion and beliefs) before the House of Representatives, which made Garnet the first Black speaker to perform this task.
