Description Technical Specs About
 
Slaves, Salt, Sex & Mr. Crenshaw by Jon Musgrave. Nearly 50 years ago a consultant visiting the Old Slave House outside Equality, Illinois decreed it didn't have the dignity to be a state historic site. Nothing but a morbid tale of "slaves, salt, sex & Mr. Crenshaw." he reported. Over the decades it's been recognized for its architecture, and even for it's ghosts, as some rank it one of America's most haunted places. Finally it's now recognized for it's history, becoming the first 'Reverse Underground Railroad' site to receive official recognition from the National Park Service's UGRR Network to Freedom program. For the folklore has been proven true, of tales of free men and women, boys and girls, kidnapped and sold into slavery, their stories can finally be told.
