Perceiving relationships and recognizing outcomes

In the years before the American Civil War, there was a federal law that allowed slave owners to reclaim their escaped slaves. Anthony Burns was born a slave in Virginia. He escaped to Boston in 1854. He lived and worked there for a few months before his former owner appeared and had him arrested. The trial of Anthony Burns triggered angry mobs in Boston, a city where most people were against slavery. He was forced to go back to Virginia with his master, but he later gained his freedom.

  1. He was born a slave.
  2. The angry mobs in Boston were against him.
  3. His owner was allowed by law to reclaim him.
  4. He was living and working in Boston.
