Suffering for PeaceThe Quakers (Society of Friends) were early anti-slavery supporters of the Underground Railroad. Once the war erupted and Alamance County residents chose sides, supporters of the Confederacy regarded the Friends as Unionists. Never attacked directly by their neighbors, the Quakers were subjected to various pressures to conform. The government, attempting to enforce the conscription acts, tried not only to persuade Quaker conscripts to renounce their faith but also inflicted physical and psychological violence on them.
