Oh, I hated slavery, as it fettered me and beat me and baffled me in my desires. In my period of despair, it gave me the power to hate. But in the end, it also gave me the will and the courage to conquer or die." John P. Parker, former slave, 1845.

Fugitive Slave Law
Long before Americans fought a Civil War - beginning in 1861 - slaves were running away. This document, from the U.S. National Archives, depicts an Act of Congress creating a "Fugitive Slave Law" on February 12, 1793. It establishes the "rules" for dealing with runaways (who were considered "property" of other human beings).
At the time this law was passed George Washington was America's president.
