Henry's Freedom Box is the true story of a boy's journey from slavery to freedom. Henry was born a slave. One day he was sent away from his family to work in a factory. He met a slave girl and they were allowed to marry. They had several children and were allowed to live together. Then, one day his wife and children were sold. Henry knew he would never see his family again and vowed to be free. He came up with the idea to mail himself north inside a crate. With the help of two friends, he was packed inside a crate and embarked on the 27 hour trip north. When he reached Philidelphia, he was unpacked a free man and given two things he had never had - a birthday and a middle name.
