    The Fugitive Slave Act became component of the gang of regulations noted using fact the "Compromise of 1850." in this compromise, the antislavery advocates gained the admission of California as a unfastened state, and the prohibition of slave-finding out to purchase and merchandising in the District of Columbia. The slavery occasion gained concessions with connection with slaveholding in Texas and the passage of this regulation. Passage of this regulation became so hated with the aid of abolitionists, although, that its life performed a function in the tip of slavery somewhat extra beneficial than a dozen years later. This regulation additionally spurred the persevered operation of the fabled Undergound Railroad, a community of over 3,000 residences and different "stations" that helped escaping slaves return and forth from the southern slave-protecting states to the northern states and Canada.
