Slave patrol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaFugitive Slave Laws
The Fugitive Slave Laws
helped enforce the necessity for slave patrols in order to aoffere by the
law. Although initially these laws were created to keep tensions low
between the north and the south, it caused the physical formation of
slave patrols. During the Civil War, the theory of Contraband
prevented the return of Southern slaves who reached Union-held
territory. This helped limit the role of slave patrols/catchers and
changed the war. Another form of help for slaves was the Underground Railroad
which aided slaves in their escape to northern states. The use and
physical formation of slave patrols came to its end in 1865 when the
Civil War ended. This end however is linked to post civil war groups
such as the Ku Klux Klan, which continued to terrorize and threaten the black community.
