Beyond the River brings to brilliant life the dramatic story of the forgotten heroes of the Ripley, Ohio, line of the Underground Railroad.From the highest hill above the town of Ripley, Ohio, you can see five bends in the Ohio River. You can see the hills of northern Kentucky and the rooftops of Ripley’s riverfront houses. And you can see what the abolitionist John Rankin saw from his house at the top of that hill, where for nearly forty years he placed a lantern each night to guide fugitive slaves to freedom beyond the river. In Beyond the River, Ann Hagedorn tells the remarkable story of the participants in the Ripley line of the Underground Railroad, bringing to life the struggles of the men and women, black and white, who fought “the war before the war” along the Ohio River. Determined in their cause, Rankin, his family, and his fellow abolitionists—some of them former slaves themselves—risked their lives to guide thousands of runaways safely across the river into the free state of Ohio, even when a sensational trial in Kentucky threatened to expose the Ripley “conductors.” Rankin, the leader of the Ripley line and one of the early leaders of the antislavery movement, became nationally renowned after the publication of his Letters on American Slavery, a collection of letters he wrote to persuade his brother in Virginia to renounce slavery. A vivid narrative about memorable people, Beyond the River is an inspiring story of courage and heroism that transports us to another era and deepens our understanding of the great social movement known as the Underground Railroad.

This is such a powerful story of the heroes we've never heard about. The people who built hidden chambers and false bottoms under fireplaces to hide fugitives. The gun battles that happened between conductors on the Underground Railroad and slave catchers. The pastors who were thrown out of their pulpits for daring to call slavery a sin. The college student who was publicly whipped for possession of antislavery pamphlets in Nashville, TN. There's so much more packed into this incredible book. Ann Hagedorm is a strong writer who knows how to weave a story that you can't put down. She makes historical facts come alive as you find yourself cheering for these brave people. This is one of the most well written books on Civil War history and is simply a joy to absorb.

Ann Hagedorn did an excellent job of research for Beyond the River. It is clearly written and well presented. I ordered it because my ancestors were personally involved in the abolitionist movement in Ohio and other places. I found many accounts in her book of my great-grandfathers and their work near Ripley, and Sardinia. I thank her and you for making it available.

By reaching back to pre-Civil War newspapers, letters and court documents, Hagedorn paints a vivid picture of what it felt like living on the knife edge between slavery and freedom. She makes a reader actually understand the bravery of these Ohio abolitionists by showing us their daily lives, and what it was like to risk your life to help another person to freedom. Once I got into the story, I could not stop reading this compelling history, and I'm usually a reader of fiction rather than non-fiction. Hagedorn's gift for research is matched only by her ability to weave those facts into a fascinating story of these people, this town and a momentous era in our nation's history.

This is a powerful story . . . providing much need understanding and insight into the foundations of slavery, the underground railroad and the abolitionist movement. Read it! 2 Thumbs Up.

If you are interested in the Underground Railroad from an insider's perspective this is a great book! The history between Kentucky and Ohio interlaced throughout the book is revealing and even astounding. The moral conviction and bravery of those who risked it all to keep the railroad going is truly what has made our country free.
Kupidon
This is a well told story of the brave men and women who saved the lives of an untold amount of people. This was done at a time when if caught you faced death. It is a history that should be read by all. Thank you.

I love this book. Its true and very interesting
This is the history of the underground railroad as slaves crossed the Ohio River at Ripley, Ohio.

It is interesting, but more details about the circumstances of the escapes and less listing of the names would have improved the story.

Overall, it is very informative.
