Happy birthday, Levi Coffin (Oct. 28, 1798 – Sept. 16, 1877)! #Quaker. #Pacifist. #Abolitionist. The home he shared with his wife, Catherine, in Fountain City, Indiana, was known as the “Grand Central Station of the Underground Railroad.” The house is today a National Historic Landmark. It is estimated that the Coffins helped about 3,000 slaves escape to freedom. Levi’s autobiography, “Reminiscences of Levi Coffin,” was published in 1876, shortly before he died. The book (still in print) is considered one of the best first-hand accounts of the Underground Railroad. Born in Guilford County, North Carolina. Died in Avondale, Ohio. Buried in Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati, Ohio.
