Women In History: Sara Lucy Bagby

This program is FREE and open to the public.

Prior to the start of the Civil War, Sara Lucy Bagby was a runaway enslaved person who was later captured in Cleveland, Ohio in 1861 and tried under the Fugitive Slave Act amid protests of abolitionists, and returned to her Master. She was one of the last fugitives to be surrendered by the North and returned to the South under the provisions of the Act. After the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, Lucy walked to freedom in Pittsburgh.
