9780985119614: Dawn of Day

Henrietta never liked history. But on a late summer day in 1932, she and her sometimes annoying little sister Irma Jean, hear an exciting true story from their artist friend, Maude Mitchell-a story that takes them back in time 75 years. In 1856, Maude's father, William Mitchell, came from Connecticut to support the Free State cause in Kansas. William and his sister Agnes hid runaway slaves in their cabin, including Jesse and Abby, two slave children who'd been cruelly separated from their mother. Henrietta had learned about the Underground Railroad at school, but she never realized how dangerous it was for everyone involved. But what has slavery got to do with the family secret and Aunt Jo being mad at her parents? As the pieces of the puzzle begin to come together, Henrietta discovers a surprise from the past that nobody dreamed was possible.

From the Back Cover:

 "Set in a time when children still rode horses to school, Dawn of Day is an enchanting story about family history being passed on from one generation to the next. Based on historic events during the turbulent period of our nation's history known as "Bleeding Kansas," this is a book that is interesting, entertaining, and educational. It's not often that one book successfully combines all three."--Michael Stubbs, Kansas Historian 

"Dawn of Day is an engaging introduction to a little-known part of Kansas history--the pre-Civil War immigration of abolitionists into the Territory to help 'Bleeding Kansas' join the Union as a free state. The book offers a fictional but realistic glimpse into the lives of the Mitchells and other families who settled in Wabaunsee, who were involved in the fight for freedom and the secret activities of the Underground Railroad."--Kathryn Mitchell Buster, great-niece of Maude Mitchell
