An escaped slave, he became the pastor of two all-white congregations in South Butler and Cortland, New York. In 1834, he was attacked by a proslavery mob of New York merchants, and was jailed without “accuser or trial. ” From then on, he committed himself to the anti-slavery cause. In 1851, fearing arrest for his part in a slave rescue, Ward escaped to Canada, where he continued to work as an anti-slavery agent. Ward used his powerful oratorical skills overseas, and lived the remainder of his life in Jamaica, free from the constant threat of arrest.
