Youve never seen a city like Wilmingtonthe people, the streets, the houses, the noise! Now you know the plantation really is hundreds of miles away. Your host, a Quaker businessman named Thomas Garrett, smiles gently and promises youll see much bigger cities before you reach Canada.
A good friend of Tubmans, Garrett has worked on The Underground Railroad for almost 40 years. A few years ago he was arrested and fined $5,400. It didnt stop him for a minute.
