Chester County was home to a diverse patchwork of religious communities, antislavery activists and free Black populations, all working to end the blight of slavery during the Civil War era. Kennett Square was known as the “hotbed of abolitionism” with more Underground Railroad stations than anywhere else in the nation.

Author Mark Lanyon captures the rich history that transformed Chester County into a vital region in the nation’s fight for freedom.
