Harrisburg's Role on the
Trail to Freedom ~ part 3
by T. R. McIntosh
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, February 2002
McIntosh --"Mac"-- taught
in the Harrisburg School District for more than forty years before his
recent retirement. Decrying the lack of references to ethnic minorities and
women in his school social studies texts, Mac supplemented his teachings
with material from his extensive reference collection. The following
reference article was produced as a supplement to his session on
Harrisburg's developing anti-slavery role at the February 2002 Underground
Railroad and Abolition Seminars at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This is the bibliography to part 1.
