This Train is Bound for Glory: Racine's Underground Railroad History

This Train is Bound for Glory: Racine's Underground Railroad History

Presented by Racine Heritage Museum at Racine Heritage Museum

During the time of the Underground Railroad, Racine’s busy harbor offered fugitive slaves the opportunity to escape to Canada by ship. ┬áThis exhibit focuses on the story of Joshua Glover, fugitive slave, and the individuals and locations that played a part in his escape. ┬áHis story is of particular significance in that it led to a long legal battle and eventual statewide repeal of the Fugitive Slave Act. If you cannot visit in person, visit the on-line exhibit.
