In Response To: Re: Piatt of Ohio ()
ARt, this is great stuff! Thanks for sending it along! Yes, these are the stories that should/need to be told. Interestingly, I have been in correspondence with Margaret Piatt of the Piatt Museum, and she, too, has some doubts about the Piatt UGRR connections. She and I will continue working on this. She said that she has run into great resistance to questioning the Piatt story, and the placement of the sign at the Piatt homestead. I have sent an email to Cathy Nelson of the Ohio UGRR group who put the sign up and, but I have not received an answer from her. If Cathy reads this list-serv, or if someone who works with her does, please have her contact me/this forum to move forward with this inquiry into the Piatts, and also move forward with highlighting the historically documented contributions of black agents/operators/conductors in the region.
