Bloody Dawn: The Christiana Riot and Racial Violence in the Antebellum North

While 4 younger males, slaves on Edward Gorsuch's Maryland farm, escaped to rural Pennsylvania in 1849, the landlord swore he'd convey them again. years later, Gorsuch lay lifeless outdoors the farmhouse in Christiana the place he'd tracked them down, as his federal posse retreated pell-mell sooner than the armed may perhaps of neighborhood blacks--and the influence of the main infamous act of resistance opposed to the federal Fugitive Slave legislation used to be approximately to be felt throughout a divided country.
