In the 1850's, Joshua Brooks made a gut-retching decision which placed him and his entire family in extreme peril. Yet his perseverance would culminate into a multi-state covert operation. One night in 1855, his 12 year old great-granddaughter risks her life to save another. Her heroic deed would remain a secret until 1913. That is when a reporter decided to investigate the veracity of this former slave's story. And what a story it was! He concluded that her act of bravery had altered the course of American history.
