The painting was done in 1893 for the Columbian World's Exposition in Chicago, Illinois. The image was collected by Ohio State University professor Wilbur H. Siebert (1866-1961). Siebert began researching the Underground Railroad in the 1890s as a way to interest his students in history. View on Ohio Memory.
