Midway Village - Stories by Alisha

Our class traveled to house built in the 1840's in Rockford by a carpenter from Rhode Island. A very nice lady told us how slaves escaped from their masters. One of the stories was about a young women named Eliza . Eliza was a slave, but her skin was so pale that she could pass as white. She was in love with a black man. She and her husband wanted to elope from slavery and go to a free state. Eliza thought she could dress as a man and pass and pass through the train system by calling her husband a slave, and she arrived to the free state!

Many slaves escaped through mail. Which was not an easy task. These slaves had to be kept in small boxes with a very small amount of food and sometimes no food at all! Traveling from a slave state to a free state was a very long journey. Sometimes up to 30 hours in a box of a very bumpy ride! As you can see our class learned a lot from this very nice lady. Thanks for reading.
