Summary, Etc. Henry Brown wrote that long before he came to be know as "Box," he "entered the world a slave." He was put to work as a child and passed down from one generation to the next as property. When he was an adult, his wife and children were sold away from him out of spite. Brown watched as his family, bound in chains, were sent to the deeper South. What more could be taken from him? But then hope and help came in the from of the Underground Railroad. Escape! This narrates in verse form, Henry Brown's story of how he came to ship himself in a box from slavery to freedom.
