Illustrated by William W. Brown, this is a picture of a slave who is hiding in a tree so that he won\'t be captured and down below is the owner, horse and bloodhound chasing after him.
This is Thomas Johnson holding the slave whip and chains used to torture and punish slaves.
"there arose in some an irrepressible desire for freedom which no danger or power could restrain, no hardship deterred, and no bloodhound could alarm. This desire haunted them night and day; they talked about it to each other in confidence; they knew that the system which bound them was as unjust as it was cruel, and that they ought to strive, as a duty to themselves and their children, to escape from it".Escaping
