More Description

This book contains valuable data gleaned from the District of Columbia Department of Corrections Runaway Slave Book, 1848-1863 and United States District Court for the District of Columbia Fugitive Slave Cases, 1862-1863. The enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 created these records in the jurisdiction of the District of Columbia. Entries for the section on the Department of Correction records give name of slave, date committed and under whose orders; also date of release and to whom they were released. U.S. District Court records are sworn warrants of arrest and give name and residence of those bringing charges and the name of those they seek. A full-name index adds to the value of this work. The author is the 2002 James Dent Walker Award Winner.
