"Freedom's Trail" by Helen Sproat is a brief history of the role that Springboro, Ohio, played in the underground railroad during the civil war. This small Quaker town in Southwestern Ohio played a key role in helping run-away slaves escape the South on the way to freedom in Canada. At great personal risk, the Quakers hid people desperate to escape their owners. Many of these modest homes still exist and are popular destinations for those interested in the Civil War.
