Around Sunday, November 26, 1854, three enslaved people escaped from St. Genevieve and successfully made their way to Chicago. This group escape appears to have been coordinated with two near-simultaneous escapes from St. Louis and St. Charles that altogether constituted a second "stampede" from St. Louis in just over one month.
