    One thought on “From Midnight to Dawn: The Last Tracks of the Underground Railroad”

    1. This history of the underground railroad concentrated on the movement of blacks from the United States to Canada, particularly into southwestern Ontario.One thing that I really liked about the book was that Tobin looked at the women who played roles in this movement, an aspect often forgotten.Some players came to Canada temporarily, going back for either the Civil War itself, or its aftermath. Some however returned to Canada, finding the new black codes implemented in the south after the war too [...]

    2. I found this book extremely interesting. The timeline begins at the War of 1812 and continues thru the Civil War and after. It tells the story of tens of thousands of African Americans (especially runaway slaves as they fled to Canada in search of freedom, equality and a better life. this novel rediscovers the important episode in both nations' histories and provides a masterful retelling in clear and moving language. She does a masterful job of research and includes many individuals we've all h [...]

    3. Very interesting. I knew the outlines of the history of the Underground Railway, and some of the people involved but next to nothing about the Canadian settlements at the northern end, nor their origins or politics, which were the focus of this book.I appreciated the biographical sketches of the major players involved, as well as the regional approach to the history. It very much helped keeping all of the overlapping stories and characters straight. The extensive quotes of original source materi [...]

    4. From Midnight to Dawn: The Last Tracks of the Underground Railroadby Jacqueline L. TobinAudio narrated by Richard Allen3-1/2*This is a very well-researched and interesting testament of some of the key players involved in the implementation of the Underground Railroad and their impact, following a timeline starting well before the American Civil War and following up through the war and during the Reconstruction period. Included is the well-known Araminta Ross (Harriet Tubman), whom I always pictu [...]

    5. This extraordinary narrative offers a fresh perspective on the Underground Railroad as it traces the perilous journeys of fugitive ex–slaves from the United States to free black settlements in Canada.The Underground Railroad was the passage to freedom for many slaves, but it was rife with dangers. There were dedicated conductors and safe houses, but also arduous nights in the mountains and days in threatening towns. For those who made it to Midnight (the code name given to Detroit), the Detroi [...]

    6. Abolition, emancipation, the Underground Railroad. Those with an elementary concept of these lights in our moral history would likely associate with them names like John Brown, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Harriet Tubman. For those who care to know more about the host of others involved in these great movements, the establishment of constructive responses to the evil of slavery, and the pre-history of the American Civil War, Tobin's work provides an excellent and finely researc [...]

    7. From Midnight to Dawn tells the history of the underground railroad, of the settlements of former slaves in the northern states of the U.S and even more so those in Canada. It is fairly detailed about the settlements and towns, from their inception to the Reconstruction era.Of course, I'd already known about the underground railroad, and the likes of Harriet Tubman who risked so much for others. I felt as if the book didn't have much new to offer in that respect. What I did find interesting and [...]

    8. Good book to look at the plague of slavery and the way slaves tried to free themself and what they were able to built from nothing.A little bit difficult to follow if someone doesn't have a general overwiew of American history.

    9. This book was on a fascinating topic and I was excited to read it. The major characters in the history of the Underground Railroad were included but played a minor role to less famous heroes. Tobin really tried to give the stories of less famous players in African American history especially some of the women who were looked over due to conventions of the time period. Tobin also gave details on the fugitive slave towns started in Canada and the ongoing debate the fugitive slaves had about how mu [...]

    10. A very well written book! I would recommend it to anyone. The strength and courage of these people-there are no words that I could write that could do them justice. A most extrodinary point in the face of history was that I had no idea, and I don't believe, scare as a mention that the Prince of Wales (Edward VII) visited Buxton on his tour of North America!! To quote Oscar Wilde "The only duty we have to history is to rewrite it"-yes we must rewrite history and accurately write down what did ind [...]

    11. This book is making me happy as it presents stories of triumph and freedom on the northern border of the U.S. which I had not heard of before, (caveat, this is the first book I have read on the underground railroad). There is much more information on the people creating the railroad than presented in popular culture. The book presents an interesting context for the actions of John Brown also. Bonus evocative description of the time period with elucidation of the naming of the route as a railroad [...]

    12. I started out thinking, well, this is pretty boring, but maybe it will get better. It didn't. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for a series of fact about important figures in the last leg of the underground railroad, but it read more like a middle school text book than I was hoping for. What I was hoping for was an interesting read about the incredibly important and interesting people important in the story of the underground railroad which Tobin most certainly didn't provide.

    13. On the plus side, Tobin brings to light information on figures and communities long lost in the historic record. On the minus side, the book concentrates on a few exile communities in Canada, with special accent on major figures who had connections there -- the Underground Railroad is actually a barely touched-on subject as a result. And, worse, it's dry as dust.

    14. This book outlines the history of the Underground Railroad with the next to last stop at "Midnight" (the city of Detroit) and its terminus at towns in Canada (one of them named Dawn) -- a wonderfully written and expansive story of a part of history I knew nothing about. A must read for anyone who wants to know more about the Abolitionist movement prior to the Civil War.

    15. A good overall coverage of the Underground Railroad in the detroit area and into Canada, The overall focus is the lives of those people who went to Canada and the various settlements that popped up as well as how various groups addressed the needs of those who self emancipated

    16. Important book if you are interested in where and what happened to slaves who escaped to the Northern borders of the US and Canada. Often, we don't hear much about this subject and the settlements established.

    17. About Canada & Detroit's role in the underground railroad with fabulous info. about existing info just across the river

    18. The book was very well written. Each book written about the underground railroad has been fascinating.

    19. Excellent and informative history of the Underground Railroad, and the Canadian connection which is often lost in the narrative on the US side of the border.
