The result: Walden: Or, Life in the Woods (1854). In 1846, Thoreau refused to pay a mandated poll tax, refusing to support a government that protected slavery and had launched an aggressive war against Mexico.

In his essay "Civil Disobedience," Thoreau argues that it is the duty of every citizen to disobey immoral laws-and willingly suffer the legal consequences for doing so.
