The Northwest Territory sparked heated debates over race and civil rights in
the nascent United States from the moment of its founding. The compromise
measure in the Northwest Ordinance, which established the territory in 1787,
said there would be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude there, but to
mollify southern delegates in the Continental Congress, the compromise only
applied to lands that were east of the Mississippi River, south of the Great
Lakes, and west of the Ohio River--and it contained a fugitive slave clause
permitting southerners to recover escaped slaves there. Many thought this
ordinance would resolve the issue of slavery in the Northwest, but in reality
it left the way open for contention over slavery's status throughout the new
region--and such contention is the subject of this bracing new history by Dana
Weiner. The newest addition to the Mellon-sponsored Early American Places
series, "Race and Rights" will be a much welcomed contribution to the study of
slavery and social activism in 19th-century America.
