American History- Compromise of 1850 & Fugitive Slave Act

Writing Prompt: (Quiz Grade) Write two well constructed paragraphs responding to the prompt from below. Make sure to demonstrate your knowledge from today's work and any other previous work we have done on this subject.

You are a planter in South Carolina who owns several slaves. You have spent large amounts of money on purchasing your slaves and depend on them to make your money. You have just heard about the Fugitive Slave Act and have decided to write a friend to express your opinion on it.

A good starting point would be for you to think about how you as a southern plantation owner would be affected. Good point is if you slaves ran away to the north there was federal enforcement to return them. Bad because northerners would be faced with heavy penalties further adding to regional divides and civil unrest. Please reach out if you would like to work on this assignment together
