Buxton's History

The Preacher:

Don't bring up the Preacher in this town. He's done everythang in the book, from stealin' to gamblin' to lyin' and even takin' away a man's family and his life. He's not a real converstation starter, in this town at least.

Me (Elijah)

I don't think I ever properly introduced myslef so here I am, Elijah Freeman. I was the first free-born child in Buxton, Canada and symbolize as a new start for my people. I will admit I get a little fra-gile at times but anyone'll tell ya' that I pull through in the long run.

Now Buxton is not only free from the slavers and all the bad in America but also free from the man who might just be the most baddest, worstest person in all of history, otherwise known as the Preacher. So I guess it's okay to say:

"Today your truly free, and you choosed the most beautifullest, most perfect day for doing it!"
