Our March Speaker
The Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 created a firestorm of opposition throughout the North but particularly in Ohio and Lorain County. Ron Gorman of the Oberlin Heritage Center will discuss Ohio's resistance to the law at our March meeting.
The presentation will focus on Ohio's personal liberty laws and on resistance to federal attempts to enforce the law, which put the state government in direct confrontation with the federal government
