Listen to the daring stories of the Underground Railroad, a network of brave individuals who helped runaway slaves escape to freedom. Courageous John Parker, a former slave, led more than 900 fugitive slaves to safety during his lifetime. Operating out of Ripley, Ohio, he would venture deep into Kentucky to rescue runaways, leading them across the Ohio River to safety past slave catchers who patrolled the region. Ripley was also the home base of underground "conductor" John Rankin, whose guiding candles in house windows were beacons to fugitive slaves.
Hear how Elizabeth Fry, "Angel of Newgate," became the voice of women's prison reform in Victorian England. Follow the adventures of Emma Edmonds, "Master of Disguise," a nurse and Union spy during the Civil War. In "The Day the Milk Jug Broke" discover how caring students rallied to help classmates pay overdue lunch bills and listen as "When the Angels Sang" portrays the faith adventures of the Carson family. Great listening entertainment for your whole family!
