The Underground Railroad

Es with firm faith in God and an ardent desire to be free she forsook the prison house and succeeded through the aid of my father to reach a free State The old familiar slave names had to be changedWilliam Still 1821–1902 was an African American abolitionist conductor on the Underground Railroad writer historian and civil rights activist He was chairman of the Vigilance Committee of the Pennsylvania Anti Slavery Society and directly aided fugitive slaves by keeping records of their lives and helping families reunite after the abolishment of slaver. These real stories written in both narrative and letter form are heartbreaking It is a real picture into our very dark past This gives you a view of the harsh realities some men imposed upon millions of others for so long The desperation and deprivation of liberty led to some brave ones to seek out the dangerous path of freedom Sometimes this meant days weeks and months in isolation and difficult wilderness being hunted like an animal It was also under the promise of severe punishment imprisonment or sale away from family if caught The severity of treatment was also a daily part of life deprived the benefit of their own labor deprived of food rest families violently torn apart These are stories that need to be known This account is just one small window into this history It s focus is mostly told through the lens of an agent of the Philadelphia depot but it shows many successful flights to the north and especially to Canada and some failures Many seeking refuge had to leave husband wife mothers and children behind not even being able to tell them of their plans to escapeA great evil of it all is the failure of the southern church to stay true to God Not only did they fail to preach against the evils of the slavery around them but they were complicit in and benefited from keeping slaves in bondage to their masters often showing the most unchristian cruelty Wolves in sheeps clothing not sparing the flock Thank God for those who remained faithful churches that joined in strongly in the abolitionist movement and doing the very thing that James says is true religion Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this to visit orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the worldWe must continue to testify against the evils of our present age
