Effects of the Fugitive Slave Law (1850) - stock illustration

Vintage illustration shows a group of four black men, possibly freedmen, ambushed by a posse of six armed whites in a cornfield. The Fugitive Slave Act passed by Congress in September 1850 allowed slave-hunters to seize alleged fugitive slaves without due process of law and prohibited anyone from aiding escaped fugitives or obstructing their recovery. The law threatened the safety of all blacks, slave and free, and forced many Northerners to become more defiant in their support of fugitives.
