Script Details

The escape of Joe and Bill Bailey with Peter Pennington and Eliza Manokey. One fine morning Joe was missing, and his brother Bill, from another plantation; Peter and Eliza, too, were gone; and these made part of Tubman’s next party, who began their pilgrimage from Maryland to Canada, or as they expressed it, from "Egypt to de land of Canaan."
William Hughlett, who had only recently purchased Joe Bailey, posted runaway advertisements, offering an extraordinary reward of $1,500. Joe was a valuable man, a skilled lumberjack and inspector whose services were vitally important. Turpin Wright offered another high reward, $800, for the capture and return of Peter. Such high rewards increased the danger of capture for the runaways.

They faced serious obstacles in their escape North. It took them nearly two weeks to reach Wilmington, a trip that had in the past taken Tubman only three or four days. The slave catchers’ persistent tracking of the group forced them to proceed slowly and remain hidden. They hid in potato holes, an underground hiding place for food, while the slave catchers passed within feet of them.
