Ebook Description

The transatlantic slave trade and the fugitive slave laws in the late 18th century led to a significant increase in the number of people seeking freedom. Runaway slaves were often aided in their escape by a growing network of people who saw slavery as morally reprehensible. This work explores this intriguing time in American history.
