Caution!! Colored People, 1851

Library of Congress

A poster displayed in Boston warns African Americans to be on the lookout for slave catchers hunting for fugitive slaves in the area. Notices such as this one may have caused George Latimer to fear for his family's safety. For unknown reasons, after 1858 George Latimer lived apart from his wife and children.
