The Poll Tax Matter - TranscendentalFest
by Dan Evans
A Lulu LoLo Production

In Concord, Massachusetts, 1846, Henry Thoreau is arrested at the local shoemaker's for refusing to pay his state poll tax as a protest against slavery.  His night spent in jail, wearing only one shoe, and jawing with his cellmate, a boisterous outspoken drifter, inspires him to develop his doctrine of civil disobedience. Suddenly a young fugitive slave uses their cell to hide in.
