This #ambrotype shows #freestater John Doy and his rescue party in 1859. Doy was captured in January of that year for the crime of helping slaves escape to freedom. However, after he was sentenced to serve five years in the penitentiary, he was freed by his friends from #Kansas. This image was captured the summer he escaped. #kansashistory #bleedingkansas
