Alternative Chapel on the Underground Railroad

Are you looking for an alternative chapel?  Do you want to learn more about the history of the underground railroad?  Then you may want to consider this lecture.  I hope to see you there.

On February 7, 2012, George Nagle will be presenting an Alternate Chapel lecture/discussion on Harrisburg’s local history of the Underground Railroad in the 1850s.  This event is part of the Black History Month program of events. 

 “Underground Railroad- The Crucible of Central Pennsylvania’s Anti-slavery Resistance”

 “Before the first shots were fired on a Virginia battlefield in 1861, Northerners and Southerners were battling and shedding blood in the streets of Harrisburg, Carlisle and Lancaster. Join us as Mr. Nagle journeys us through a time when slave catchers steadily wore away the local Underground Railroad network, until a young schoolteacher from Philadelphia arrived in town and stealthily began putting the network back together. He used spies, coded messages, and modern technology to build a secure Underground Railroad chain from Harrisburg, linking Philadelphia, Reading, Carlisle, Saratoga and Niagara Falls.
