Hello my name is Joshua, I am 13 years old. I was was captured at the age of 7, I wanted to go see my family but my owner wouldn't let me so i will plan my escape from Arkansas all the way to Canada to where my family lives.
I want to go home! I miss my family!
Tonight, I will take this train all the way up to pennsylvania and from there i will take a river to Niagra falls, from there i will take another train to london in canada to where my family lives.
I am joshua and I was enslaved when I was 7 and i want to go see my family since i havent seen them in 6 years.
Its time to go to my family. Hopefully my owner doesnt find out that i escaped.
This is where i sleep and live in. I sleep in a straw bed also I have a wooden table in which I eat.
Get back here you NEGRO!
AAHH A SLAVE CATCHER! I got to outrun him and his bloodhound. I now have become a fugitive slave.
I will take this train up to pennsylvania and then i would take a river to Niagara falls then i would take another train to london in canada to see my family.
DAD, MOM, I am so happy to see you. I was finally able to cross the mason-dixon line and that lead me to you.
SON, you have grown so much in these 6 years.
SON. I am so glad to see you how have you been.
I finally got on the train and now i am on my way to see my family. While I was going to see my family, I noticed that my conductor was taking me through a mysterious and scary path.
While i was going through the river i saw a slave catcher that was chasing me and also i saw his bloodhound i had to run until i finally lost him and his dog.
I finally got home after 6 years. When i got home i saw my dad and my mom. I was so happy that I was finally with them.
