The Howard County Historical Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, exhibiting and providing access to the county's rich history and heritage.Our archives and manuscript collection includes court cases dealing with Fugitive slaves and those who aided, abetted and enticed runaways, in addition to ledgers and records of slaveholders.We have identified connections between the County's slaveholders (including the Charles Carroll family) and court cases presented in the District Court dealing with fugitive cases.We are seeking acknowledgement as an archival repository crucial to recounting the history of those who attempted to flee slavery via the Underground Railroad and the fates of those tried in the court system.
