The Underground Railroad Experience

Dear Sponsors:

I am writing to thank you for sponsoring me on this wonderful trip. I am so glad to be on this trip to explore the Underground Railroad sites. It was a good experience for me and the opportunity to experience travel. Every time you have sponsored me on a summer trip, it has been a life changing experience….

Thursday, we visited the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. This was a real inspirational museum. To experience how Harriet Tubman grew up to be a magnificent leader. She helped her family and others to escape slavery, because she wanted to share freedom with others. We also went to Ripley, Ohio and visited John Parker’s and Reverenced John Rankins’ Homes. These were houses for freed slaves to rest, get new shoes and clothes and to get a meal for their continued journey. Sometimes they hid them in their barn during the daylight hours. These men were part of the Underground Railroad. Ripley, Ohio had a lot of abolitionist that helped escaped slaves to freedom….

I want to thank you for sponsoring me on this amazing experience and summer trip.
