On Tuesday, October 19th, TCS students and staff went on a walking tour of The Underground Railroad in West Chester, sponsored by the Chester County Historical Society. We learned about the network of people that were involved in the passage of slaves (men, women, and children) who escaped to the North to be free. This network offered shelter and aid to them. Chester County played a large role in the Underground Railroad. We learned about the people involved in this network. We were amazed by the people who risked their lives and freedom to help the former slaves. This network consisted of both white and black men and women. The white people risked being imprisoned because it was illegal, and the black people risked being sent back to slavery. It was a very interesting tour! We were also able to tour the museum.
