Fugitive Slave Act of 1850

The controversial Fugitive Slave Act in 1850 was one of several compromises made during the tenuous antebellum period.

The cartoon we have chosen to highlight today works great for students as it requires them to analyze both the images and text in order to gain a deeper understanding of the artist’s position.

We have included a copy of the cartoon as well as questions and answers.
