Slaves heading for freedom

By Kate Bridges
Civil War Reporter


Do you think slaves getting to Canada and getting their not deserved freedom is fair. Well of course it's not. For the people up in the north, they don't understand that we need help getting all our farm work done. If those traitors had farms like us, they'd understand. Because of us they have big delicious meals on their tables; we could just shut off our transportation systems all together. See how they like that.
Curse that colored woman, Harriet Tubman. How dare she make slaves free. If the north had farms like us, they'd have nowhere to run. We'll catch her next time she comes to pick up a load. Then wew'll hang her, and all the little dirty trators that helped.
