"Not one person was prosecuted for aiding a fugitive slave in DeKalb County. It was an accepted local activity to help escaped slaves. Hundreds of families defied the Fugitive Slave Law, helping the antislavery movement in this one Northern Illinois county. This book documents their strong religious motivations and chronicles their moves to seek political redress"--Provided by publisher.
