  1. says:

    This book alternates between two aspects of the tale One part deals with Burns' apprehension in Boston and the subseuent proceeding to extradite him to Virginia under the Fugitive Slave Act The Fugitive Slave Act was a federal law that allowed slave owners to recapture their slaves who had successfully escaped and settled in free states Remember Southerners were huge fans of State's rights and thought that the Federal Government should not be able to interfere in their definitions of what or whom constituted property But this admiration for states rights didn't extend to recognizing the right of other states to declare that people within their borders were free and could not be considered property For this point the Southerners were perfectly content to rest upon the almighty authority of the Federal government to enforce their property rights in areas where other states said those rights did not existConversely when it came to slavery the Northerners tended to favor a Federal approach The abolitionist movement thought the Federal Government should extend its power to simply wipe out the institution of slavery But when the Feds instead used its authority to restore slaves to their owners the northerners took up the mantle of state's rights and insisted that a slave within their borders was no slave an all and the Federal government should not be allowed to interfereThis book draws out this process and makes very clear the tensions that these laws caused in both Boston and in the South Burns himself becomes little than a pawn in the larger historical forces that are whirling around him He gets taken prisoner gets defended almost against his wishes gets rushed through a process he little understands and then gets shipped back to Virginia and North Carolina before he ultimately gets purchased by his defenders and freed His only wish is to be a free man but he is not free as a slave and indeed he is not free once this process starts to sweep him awayHamilton does a wonderful job describing the proceeding the near riots that surround the proceeding the fundamental unfairness of the law in uestion and the motives of the various people involved from the marshall to the jailers to the judge on the hearing to the lawyers and to Burns himself She also does a great job of describing the extraordinary waste of resources involved in sending this one slave back to his home state so that he could be torturedThe other aspect of the book is told through memories of Burns while in jail This part seuentially fills in parts of his upbringing and life as a slave I thought it was perhaps entertaining than the legal proceedings but less gripping The main thing I got from these sections was that Burns life as a slave was intolerable and at the same time as a slave he had it rather easy compared to other slaves The interesting aspect of this part was the practice of raising slaves not for plantation work but to be leased out to middle class store and restaurant owners for the term of a year or In one of these labor stints his lessor negligently starts some manufacturing euipment and completely mangles Burns right hand Since he can no longer perform his service the lessor simply terminates the lease and returns Burns to his owner as damaged goods No other conseuence seems to follow Pretty extraordinary stuffI think Hamilton did a great job presenting this material and yet I still have my doubts about how much kids will like it It seems to me that this book falls on the side of a book that a parent or a teacher would like the kids to read and less on the side of a book that kids will recommend to each other And that's too bad

    Jan 13I like how the first chapter showing Anthony's current situation and on to the next chapter the story starts to build up when he was a childJan 20I was expecting Anthony's childhood story starting from Chapter 2 until the second last chapter where the last chapter will show what will happen to him on the court however it was the opposite I can already tell the seuence will be odd chapters are present time and even chapters are past time which might confuse the reader Nevertheless the story wise is still greatJan 27The next two chapter was in chronological order which make the story sense Also I can feel that the story is going deeper Still interesting but not as much from the beginningFeb 03The story is getting deeper and I feel sorry for Anthony Every time he was about to have justice on his side theres always little things that's preventing him from having it like that part where Simon had stomachache which makes Anthony late Aslo I like how the write it in the actual accent they pronouce it Feb 22The story is getting deeper where Anthony was sent to the court and sold to the Foote's family but in the end he got injured to the point where he broke his arm Nevertheless Anthony always have faith that he will survive this misfortune

    I thought this book was really goodIt really keeps you wanting to read since every time you think it'll stop drama rises and you think Anthony will go back to slavery but you never know till the end of the trialI also like how inbetween parts during the case it goes back to Anthony's childhood as a slave who was privledged than others it really puts you in a slave's perspective just wanting to be freeAnd even after the case so much goes on after the books main focus too like the struggles Anthony has to deal with after the decision of a trial Anthony Burns is a very good book but at points confusing A good read I give it 4 out of 5 stars


  6. says:

    This book is a good story for people who enjoy reading historical fiction In this book I was surprised when the soldiers attacked the crowed of people This happened when Anthony Burns was being taken to the ship because he was still a slave The people were mad at the soldiers because of this so they started booing and hissing at them


  7. says:

    Anthony Burns was born and raised as a slave until the part where he and his parents ran away because their owner's wife threatens to sell him or his mom away once in Boston his owner finds him and a debate starts judging is Edward Loring and they argue for days about whether he should be free or a slave again he is sold awhile later and receives his freedom


  8. says:

    Sothe only things I remember about this book are that he escaped from slavery got recaptured and then escaped again as a free man Yay He's freed But then in the epilogue it says he dies when he's like 30 or something Boo


  9. says:

    if i could rate this book a zero i would because this was the most incredibly boring and unbearable to read I do not recommend anyone in the world reading this because this book will make any person want to kill themselves DO NOT READ

    Wow the things that people were allowed to do to slaves and legally under the law too I enjoyed this book and learned a few new things like because of Anthony Burns we now have the Habeas Corpus law Interesting read I would recommend it
