The former settlement in Maine tells a number of tales that are remarkable in nature: a fabled secret tunnel and buried treasure; the active participation of slaves in the plots and battles of the American Revolution; persistent rumors of the Underground Railroad and confirmed outbreaks of racial violence; and more. For nearly two centuries, the black settlement of Atusville existed in Machias, Maine - the extreme northeast corner of the United States. Here are the stories of that settlement. Black & white photographs throughout, complete with index and reference notes. Paperback. 118 pgs.
