The Underground railroad and Fugitive Slave Act
Meanwhile, in the deep south...
Ever since this new law, there have been so many people trying to capture us! They are just trying to follow the law!
Shhh..... Be quite. The guards could be anywhere around here, and you know what will happen if they find us.
We're almost there! Keep going, there's a family of Abolitionists here who will help us.
Go, Go, Go! Get inside quickly before anyone sees!
I'm going to have to leave you here. This family will take you to the next stop on the railroad. They will take good care of you.
I hate that now if people didn't arrest any expected slaves, they would be fined. This caused so much chaos for us, and all the other runaways.
After a long time of hiding, and many miles.
Finally, we don't have to hide! Being free in the North is great!
