In the early 1800s, the Ohio River was considered to be the River Jordan by fugitive slaves seeking the Promised Land and freedom in the Northern states.
With the majority of the 1,300-mile river making up Kentucky’s northern border – from West Virginia to Missouri – the majority of fugitives passed through the commonwealth to get to freedom, according to area historian Diane P. Coon of Shelbyville.
Coon gave a fact-filled presentation on the Underground Railroad last Thursday, April 11, to a nearly full house at the Trimble County Public Library.
