We were crossing the Ohio River into Kentucky from Cincinnati... I actually took this picture from the Underground Railroad Museum.
We learned how the Ohio River played a big part in helping slaves escape.
Slaves who dreamed of freedom secretly crossed to the north side of the Ohio River.
This is a picture of the kids in front of a "real" slave pin. It was owned by Anderson a slave holder. We met a man that took the time to teach the kids about how Anderson did business. Very sad.
We learned about Henry "Box" Brown.
A slave that devised a plan to have himself shipped to a free state in a box.
Daddy trying to see how Mr. Brown felt in the box.
Runaways would often hide........here is the kids finding a place to hide.
We read about Rosa Parks.
These cute girly twins would of let Rosa share a seat with them on the bus.
