Book Description:
Heartening, firsthand account by the man widely regarded as the person who provided much of the material for the self sacrificing, revered character in Uncle Tom's Cabin. Henson perceptively recalls his childhood and youth, forced separation from his wife and children, escape to Canada, role as 'conductor' on the Underground Railroad, and meeting with Queen Victoria in England. Additional comments on fugitive slaves enlisting in the Union Army and Henson's brief return after the Civil War to his old home in Maryland. Invaluable resource for students and teachers of Southern and African American history, and anyone devoted to the struggle for racial equality.
