S: from slavery to freedom

1: I am going to tell you all about my trip from slavery to freedom.

2: I grew up as a slave in North Carolina. It was terrible, I had to work on big plantations and I had to plant crops. When I grew up, I found out I was a slave and I felt really bad. I wished they would let us go.

5: I found out that I would never be free so I decided to escape, I was told to follow the north star. Before I left, I waved goodbye to my people and I was on my way.

6: Escaping was hard, after the master found out I escaped he offered a 100,000 dollar reward for finding me. There were a lot of people looking for me, so I had to be smart.

9: During my journey to freedom, there were some people who didn't agree with slavery. Those people helped me on my journey to freedom.

10: It was called the Underground Railroad. It wasn't a train or underground. It was a secret, If the wrong person found out the people that helped me would lose everything and they might go to jail. This is how the underground railroad goes. I go to a person's house and they give me food and new clothes and they tell me where to go.

13: My journey has finally came to an end and I am a free man, but I decided to settle in Canada because I wanted to be In a safe place.

14: The first thing I did when i arrived at Canada was get a good education and get a job. I decided to join the army.

16: I found out after the civil war that my people were free. I was so happy to hear that news.
