Kelton House performers recount the rescue of a kidnapped, fugitive African American slave living in abolitionist Oberlin, Ohio. The rescue brought the wrath of President James Buchanan's pro-slavery administration on the eve of the American Civil War. Based on the book The Town That Started the Civil War by Nat Brandt.
