Underground

Tonight’s PBS program about William Still was a truly excellent telling of one of the principal conductors of the Underground Railroad.

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Abe Lincoln’s hero Henry Clay made Canada all that much more important to Americans who valued freedom.
