By Hamilton, Virginia. The year is 1854, and Anthony Burns, a 20-year-old Virginia slave, has escaped to Boston. But according to the Fugitive Slave Act, a runaway can be captured in any free state, and Anthony is soon imprisoned. The antislavery forces in Massachusetts are outraged, but the federal government backs the Fugitive Slave Act, sparking riots in Boston and fueling the Abolitionist movement. Reading level: Ages 8 and up. Laurel Leaf (1993), English, Paperback: 208 pages.

Anthony Burns may be considered an obscure person in American history, but his plight for freedom is worthy of study. Because he represents numerous slaves who escaped to the Northern states in search of freedom, the story of his life will illuminate the scant details regarding slavery in history books, and give students an accurate and heart- wrenching account of this bitter time...it's a true story of courage, bondage, freedom, and hope.
