“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.
