Second grade students at JGE participated in their annual Underground Railroad.  Harriet Tubman (Mrs. Francette Calvin) led the “slaves” through the swamp, graveyard, and stables.  They looked for safety from slave catchers in safe houses of abolitionists.  They finally reached freedom in Canada, where some of the free slaves “jumped the broom” to get married.
