Texas in the Civil War
The Causes of the War
The Fugitive Slave Act, part of the Compromise of 1820, meant that slaves could be captured and returned to the South. It also made it a crime to assist a runaway slave.
John Brown was a violent abolitionist who led a raid on an armory at Harper's Ferry, Virginia to take the weapons to begin a slave revolt.
