Every family has them: stories of Great-Uncle Harold’s time in the trenches of WWI, Grampa’s side trip into bootlegging during Prohibition, Aunt Helen’s wanderlust that took her around the globe twice, Grandma’s ground-breaking work as the first female at Lockheed Aeronautics during WWII. These are the stories that may only get trotted out once a year or so, maybe at Christmas or the infrequent family reunion, but otherwise stay hidden away in shoeboxes at the back of closets or in the dimly-lit corners of an oldster’s mind.
And very often, the story and its teller are, eventually, lost for all time. Why? Because the stories don’t get written down.
With the help of two friends, this Virginia slave was sealed inside a wooden box and shipped from Richmond to Philadelphia, a harrowing 27-hour ordeal at the mercy of cargo handlers and rogues of all sorts. The Disappearing Man is based on a true story—one of the most incredible escape attempts in the history of the Underground Railroad. It was the ultimate disappearing act.
