As the slave population grew greater and greater in number, so did the owner’s paranoia. Over time slave rules became so rigid and unfair that they gave the owners the right to treat slaves as they chose, without recrimination.

Some owners exercised unimaginable cruelty to their slaves and treated them like animals, causing many to rebel. Rebellions were put down with a heavy hand that often cost the rebelling slave and their supporters severe punishment, and in many cases their very lives.

Over time, some slaves had had enough and revolted to try to gain their freedom. Their bravery coupled with encouragement of abolitionists and others, created many such slave revolts.

As slavery grew it became more and more controversial. As determined as the South was to keep it, the North was equally determined to get rid of it. Citizens of various persuasions actively participated in helping slaves find freedom through the Underground Railroad. This movement helped thousands of slaves find freedom by escaping the South to the North or even Canada.
