Wheaton College and the Underground Railroad

There was a great story in the Chicago Tribune this weekend about Wheaton College unearthing some of it's archives to discover that it was part of the Underground Railroad.

I read it to our family and we had a great discussion about the Underground Railroad and the courage that it took for people to do the right thing. It is still hard to believe that this was part of our country's past but an important story to tell so that our children and their children will always stand up for what is right.
