S: Under Ground Rail Road By: Manuel V. Alonso
BC: Well now you know my story as a slave and hope that you have learned how it was back in the days when there was slavery. This should show that black people should have had their rights too. And hopefully that till this day forward that blacks be treated like a human and not property. The End.
FC: Underground Railroad By:Manuel V. Alonso My story as a slave.
1: Slavery wasn't expected. We picked cotton and grew crops. We would do back breaking jobs and it was very painful. We'd harvest the crops. Some of the hardest things of my life were that you would get split up from your family and probably never see them again. That is the most harsh thing about my slavery life.
2: I decided to escape from slavery because it wasn't right for other people with a different color of there skin to have control of someone. I had traveled by foot and stayed in secret house that helped fugitives. But if someone was to be caught they would take them back to be punished and forced to tell where the other fugitives are.
3: That would mean turning against your own kind. I found my way by certain marks left by other runaways or helpers. I survived by staying at places were we could be fed and sleep warmly. As I went along for my freedom I felt like not only should we be free but others too.
4: As I ventured to freedom I came along people that were willing to journey with us. Some to even help make the way for other fugitives. Some ways they helped us to survive.
5: Some fed us, some gave us warmth, some gave us sleep, and others. It was a very long trip but it was worth it. Every foot step of it was worth it. Every single one!
7: I tried to find somewhere to live. In the North, because there was no slavery there. Anything that made me money. Getting life started, getting used to not having everything free like you get when you are a slave. If I was to ever make here I would make the best of it and live my life with the rights I should of had when I was a slave!
9: During the civil war it was a scary time for me and all the other slaves. But at the same time I was happy because that meant I was free. Yes finally freedom, so they fight for there freedom but also our freedom. Abraham Lincoln really helped stop slavery too. I felt like my life has been handed back to me. It was almost like I was born again and given another chance. This is my slave story and I hope it will teach a lesson to some people to treat others the way you want to be treated.
