A man with a good cause and a bad plan.KInd of reminds me of General Lee who arrested Him only he had a bad cause and a good plan.

Not Barrens related but interesting nonetheless
That was very interesting. Thank you.

17. "...By 1850 the Underground Railroad ran all the way from the deep South to Canada. That was largely thanks to the ex-slave who was known as the “Father of the Underground Railroad.” His name was William Still, and his base of operations was just six miles from the Poulos home."

I wonder if he was related in any way to James Still.

When our kids were in school we tried to take them to places that were in their studies, helped to make it a bit more interesting and we go to see some great places.
