57. Joshua Glover
Joshua Glover was a runaway slave from St. Louis, Missouri who sought asylum in Racine, Wisconsin in 1852. Upon learning his whereabouts in 1854, slave owner Bennami Garland attempted to use the Fugitive Slave Act to recover him. The events that followed helped to galvanize the abolitionist movement in the state and led to Wisconsin becoming the only state to declare the Act unconstitutional.
