Bounty Hunters Capturing black men as a result of the Fugitive Slave Law

Read About the Battle at the Quaker village of Christiana, Pennsylvania, in Lancaster County between Philadelphia and Gettysburg.  The village welcomed fugitive slaves who came its way and helped them along.  Three fugitive slaves arrived belonging to Maryland wheat planter Edward Gorusch.  Gorusch was a mean-tempered man.  A battle occurred.  The Fugitive Slave law was very rough law reaching into free states to gather any runaway slaves or sometime freemen, and return them to owners or into slavery.
