This is the history you will not learn in a textbook. You hear all about how Christianity added and abetted slavery. You will never hear that the famed Underground Railroad was pioneered and maintained by people driven by their Christian faith. The Underground Railroad helped many slaves reach freedom, and it was a major reason why the slavery question finally came to a head and finally to war.
