Excerpt from Lincoln in Pennsylvania
After his return to Illinois from his Congressional term, Lincoln devoted himself to his law work. His legal practice increased. He became recognized as one of the leading lawyers of the state. In the meantime, the slavery question became the center of debate throughout the nation. Lincoln was not a supporter of abolitionism, the doctrines Of which he considered but he was earnestly opposed to slavery. The nation as a whole had expected peace after the passage of the Compromise Measure in 1850. However the new Fugitive Slave Law which gave the United States' Marshall power to deputize a private citizen to aid in the capture of a fugitive Slave had aroused a terrific storm of opposition in the north and resentment in the South, because many of the northern states had passed Personal Liberty laws, which nullified the Fugitive Slave law.
