24 Effects of the Fugitive Slave Law TITLE: Effects of the Fugitive-Slave-Law. CALL NUMBER: PC/US H698, no. 1 (B size) [P&P] REPRODUCTION NUMBER: LC-USZC (color film copy transparency); LC-USZ (b&w film copy neg.) SUMMARY: An impassioned condemnation of the Fugitive Slave Act passed by Congress in September 1850, which increased federal and free-state responsibility for the recovery of fugitive slaves. The law provided for the appointment of federal commissioners empowered to issue warrants for the arrest of alleged fugitive slaves and to enlist the aid of posses and even civilian bystanders in their apprehension. The print shows a group of four black men--possibly freedmen--ambushed by a posse of six armed whites in a cornfield. One of the white men fires on them, while two of his companions reload their muskets. Two of the blacks have evidently been hit; one has fallen to the ground while the second staggers, clutching the back of his bleeding head. The two others react with horror. Below the picture are two texts, one from Deuteronomy: "Thou shalt not deliver unto the master his servant which has escaped from his master unto thee. He shall dwell with thee. Even among you in that place which he shall choose in one of thy gates where it liketh him best. Thou shalt not oppress him." The second text is from the Declaration of Independence: "We hold that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The print is unusually well drawn and composed for a political print of the period. The handling of both the lithographic technique and the figures betray particular skill. MEDIUM: 1 print : Lithograph on wove paper ; 33.3 x 44.3 cm (image) CREATED/PUBLISHED: New York : Hoff & Bloede, NOTES: Title appears as it is written on the item. Signed in reverse: Th.

25 Henry Box Brown TITLE: The resurrection of Henry Box Brown at Philadelphia, who escaped from Richmond Va. in a bx 3 feet long 2 1/2 ft. deep and 2 ft wide CALL NUMBER: PGA - Brown--Resurrection... (B size) [P&P] REPRODUCTION NUMBER: LC-USZC (color film copy transparency); LC-USZ (b&w film copy neg.); LC-USZCN4-225 (color film copy neg.) SUMMARY: A somewhat comic yet sympathetic portrayal of the culminating episode in the flight of slave Henry Brown "who escaped from Richmond Va. in a Box 3 feet long, 2-1/2 ft. deep and 2 ft. wide." In the office of the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society, the young Brown emerges from a crate as several figures, including Frederick Douglass (holding a claw hammer at left) look on. Details of Brown's escape, whereby he had himself shipped via Adams Express from Richmond to Philadelphia, were widely publicized in a narrative of his ordeal published under his own name in The box itself became an abolitionist metaphor for the inhumanity and spiritual suffocation of slavery. It is shown on an undated broadside published in Boston (Library of Congress, Rare Book and Special Collections Division, Broadside Collection, portfolio 65, no. 16). MEDIUM: 1 print on wove paper : lithograph ; image 27 x 40 cm., sheet 34.7 x 45.2 cm. CREATED/PUBLISHED: [New York] : Publ. by A. Donnelly, no. 19 1/2 Courtland St., N.Y. c1850. NOTES: Title from print. A similar lithograph with the same title, giving a slightly different version of the scene, was drawn on stone by Peter Kramer and printed by Thomas Sinclair of Philadelphia. (An impression is in the collection of the Library Company of Philadelphia.) "Entered by Henry Box Brown... District Court of Massachusetts."

26 Am I Not A Man And A Brother? TITLE: Am I not a man and a brother?

The design was originally adopted as the seal of the Society for the Abolition of Slavery in England in the 1780s, and appeared on several medallions for the society made by Josiah Wedgwood as early as Here, in addition to Whittier's poem, the appeal to conscience against slavery continues with two further quotes. The first is the scriptural warning, "He that stealeth a man and selleth him, or if he be found in his hand, he shall surely be put to death. "Exod[us] XXI, 16." Next the claim, "England has 800,000 Slaves, and she has made them free. America has 2,250,000! and she holds them fast!!!!"
