Historic Underground Railroad SiteBishop William Hanby, (1807-1880) courageous and of strong convictions, publicly voiced his scorn at a law that made it a felony to give food to a hungry slave, or shelter to a friendless man. From pulpit, platform, and workbench he condemned the inhumane Fugitive Slave law of 1850. "We may be bound by a man-made law," he declared, "but we are more bound by a Lord-given conscience."
