Freedom, Slavery and the Underground Railroad Dr. Veta Tucker A small but dedicated group of Michigan settlersboth blacks and whitesobjected to the US Constitution's endorsement of slavery and to territorial Michigan's blind eye to it. In spite of the Constitution's mandate to enforce slavery, Michigan abolitionists organized a small but powerful armya secret network to assist people held in slavery in Michigan and those escaping slavery in the South find freedom.
