Fugitive slave poster 1


Questions to consider:
1. How specific is the description from this poster? What problems could be created through this use of vague terminology?
2. What is your reaction to the physical description of Tom?
3. Why is there a sliding scale for the reward?

  3. Ohhhh, nuts. The wrong jpg file was uploaded. Forget about question 3.

    its probably no help now, but the whole sliding scale thing was that the further away from the plantation you got, the higher the reward
