Andrew Delbanco, professor of American Studies at Columbia University, joins us to discuss his book, The War Before the War: Fugitive Slaves and the Struggle for America’s Soul From the Revolution to the Civil War. In this book, Delbanco tracks how fugitive slaves forced the northern states to recognize their role in the brutal institution of slavery. From the writing of the constitution onward, federal statutes contained many compromises and omissions where slavery was concerned. With the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act in 1850, the north was forced to play a more active role in keeping people in chains, ultimately catalyzing wider opposition to slavery and hastening the dissolution of the union.
