Product Description
Stronger fugitive slave laws were enforced as part of the Compromise of 1850. These laws brought about an increased number of slave catchers. Fliers/posters of runaway slaves were posted by slave owners in an attempt to have their run away slaves returned. At the same time, free African Americans in the North lived in fear of being abducted and sold into slavery by unsavory slave catchers.

Students will analyze two primary source fliers. One was made by a slave owner, the other created by African Americans to warn about abduction. Questions about the fliers are answered to further your student's understanding.

An answer document is included.

Thanks for stopping by!

I would love to hear your feedback when you get a moment!
