“I've passed by the statue for 4 or 5 years and never knew what it stood for, never knew what it meant or that the people of Maine opened their arms up to help possibly, my ancestors to have a chance to a free life. So this is very special to me”

Members of the NAACP celebrated Juneteenth in Brewer Tuesday. The second annual event was held in front of a statue depicting a slave emerging from the Underground Railroad in Joshua Chamberlain Park. via WLBZ

It is indeed a wonderful thing to realize that there are people who cared and who would risk their lives and those of their Family to help another human being. In Vt there is the part of town that is called the stone village and most of these homes had underground routes for the freedom for slaves and some still exist Today!
