Many believe that support for the abolition of slavery was universally accepted in Vermont, but it was actually a fiercely divisive issue that rocked the Green Mountain State. In the midst of turbulence and violence, though, some brave Vermonters helped fight for the freedom of their enslaved Southern brethren. Thaddeus Stevens--one of abolition's most outspoken advocates--was a Vermont native. Delia Webster, the first woman arrested for aiding a fugitive slave, was also a Vermonter. The Rokeby house in Ferrisburgh was a busy Underground Railroad station for decades. Peacham's Oliver Johnson worked closely with William Lloyd Garrison during the abolition movement. Discover the stories of these and others in Vermont who risked their own lives to help more than four thousand slaves to freedom.

In October 1864, approximately twenty-one Rebel soldiers took over St. Albans, Vermont, proclaiming that it was now under Confederate government control. This northernmost land action of the Civil War ignited wartime fear and anger in every Northern state. The raiders fired on townspeople as they stole horses and robbed the local banks. St. Albans men organized under recently discharged Union captain George Conger, F. Stewart Stranahan and John W. Newton to chase the Rebels out of town. The complex network of the Confederate Secret Service was entangled with the raid and conspired to unravel the North throughout the war. The perpetrators later stood trial in Canada, causing international ramifications for years to come. Michelle Arnosky Sherburne leads readers through the drama, triumph and legacy of the Confederate raid on St. Albans.

In the village of Orland, Indiana, many residents voiced their abhorrence of the institution of slavery. Their active participation in the Underground Railroad and the blatant efforts of those who fostered the abolitionist cause, made the town a focal point of the movement in the 1850s. The arrest of five citizens who were caught moving slaves through Orland in 1853, thrust the community into the national spotlight. They had dared to defy a Federal mandate and the nation watched as they were arraigned in Federal court in Indianapolis.This history examines the events surrounding the arrests and depicts many of the players involved. The incidents in Orland acted as a catalyst that initiated subsequent abolitionist activities in the surrounding communities. These activities resulted in the formation of new antislavery societies that functioned until the beginning of the Civil War. Their endeavors are also outlined in this narrative. The story explores the relevant political events transpiring at the national, state, and local levels, as well as those within the abolitionist movement. The proponents of the movement in Orland received widespread notoriety in abolitionist circles for their brazen violation of the law and their known aversion to slavery. This notoriety, triggered by the Federal court case, brought some of the national leaders in the abolitionist ranks to Orland and to northeast Indiana to help with fund raising, organization, and education. These leaders included Stephen and Abby Kelly Foster, Josephine Griffing and Sojourner Truth.The history ends with the Civil War and how it affected the lives of these proponents of the movement. By the 1860s, many of the abolitionists were too old to participate in the conflict. However, their children took up arms and fought for these principles of freedom.The book is drawn from extensive resources and includes many photos and maps that add to the story. Local historian, Michael T. Biesiada, has created a telling story of the abolitionists' struggle. The text weaves an exciting narrative of courage and conviction in northeastern Indiana in that turbulent antebellum era.
