One of the most ingenious escapes from slavery was that of a married couple from Georgia, Ellen and William Craft. The Granger Collection, New York). By Marian Smith Holmes. Most runaway slaves fled to freedom in the dead of night, often pursued by barking bloodhounds. Courage, quick thinking, luck and our Heavenly Father, sustained them, the Crafts said in Running a Thousand Miles for Freedom, the book they wrote in 1860 chronicling the escape. Ellen and William lived in Macon, Georgia, and were owned by different masters. Put up for auction at age 16 to help settle his master’s debts, William had become the property of a local bank cashier. A skilled cabinetmaker, William, continued to work at the shop where he had apprenticed, and his new owner collected most of his wages.
