    This was a very informative and eye opening book regarding the role South Central Pennsylvanians had in the abolitionist movement I feel the author did a commendable job covering the overlooked role local African Americans had in antislavery as well Anyway, here is one of my favorite quotes from the book, as said by then jailed abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison It is a shame I have done so little for the people of color A few white victims must be sacrificed to open the eyes of this nation, and to show the tyranny of our laws I am willing to be persecuted, imprisoned, and bound for advocating African rights, and I should deserve to be a slave myself, if I shrunk from that duty or danger.
