On the Edge of Freedom: The Fugitive Slave Issue in South Central Pennsylvania, 1820-1870

On the Edge of Freedom: The Fugitive Slave Issue in South Central Pennsylvania, 1820-1870

Describes the development of antislavery activism in border south central Pennsylvania. Rather than engage in public protest, activists concentrated on protecting fugitive slaves and prosecuting those who sought to recapture them. This approach paid dividends before the Civil War, but did not provide a solid basis for equal opportunity afterwards.
