Here on February 16, 1851, Jonathan and Frances Drake participated in the rescue of the fugitive slave Shadrach Minkins. The case attracted national attention and the rebuke of President Millard Fillmore. Undeterred, abolitionists like the Drakes persisted in their efforts to end the immoral practice of slavery.
