Ive Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad by Karolyn Smardz FrostThis meticulously researched book was the result of an archaeological discovery in Toronto in 1985.
From this dig, the author, a well respected archaeologist and historian, was able to piece together the lives of Thornton and Lucie Blackburn, long forgotten citizens of Toronto, who had arrived as fugitive slaves, after a harrowing series of escapes. Their story and the legal precedents surrounding it, was instrumental in establishing the Canadian response to tens of thousands of refugees fleeing the U.S. to Canada at the height of the Underground Railroad. The Blackburn story is unforgettable, with twists and turns, and strange coincidences, that make this seem much more like a novel than a well researched historical work. At the heart, it is a love story, demonstrating incredible courage, resiliency, and resourcefulness, but even without such unforgettable protagonists, there is much to be gained by getting a better understanding of slavery on the border states and the many implications of the Fugitive Slave Act in both the northern states as well as Canada.
