Jim Dunn, president of the U.S. Marshals Museum Foundation, spoke at length about the history of the U.S. Marshals and their duty to uphold law and order in the U.S. “The Marshals enforce the law, whether they agree with it or not,” he said. He especially highlighted how the U.S. Marshals had been employed in enforcing the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 prior to the Civil War, and then roughly 100 years later, they were instrumental in the integration of schools in the South.
