Synopsis

Josiah Henson (June 15, 1789 – May 5, 1883) was an author, abolitionist, and minister. Born into slavery in Charles County, Maryland, he escaped to Upper Canada (now Ontario) in 1830, and founded a settlement and laborers school for other fugitive slaves at Dawn, near Dresden in Kent County. Hensons autobiography,  The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, as Narrated by Himself  (1849), is widely believed to have inspired the character of the fugitive slave, George Harris, in Harriet Beecher Stowes  Uncle Toms Cabin  (1852).
