Sic Semper Tyrannis

This day in history

On this date (1854), Joshua Glover, a slave from Missouri, was captured by federal agents in Racine. Abolitionists led by Sherman Booth stormed the Milwaukee jail where he was held and got him safely to Canada through the Underground Railroad.
That would make today the 150th anniversary of this event.

That's the same Sherman Booth from this post last week. But he wasn't always a good guy.
