    Abstract:
    This GIF chronicles the movements of a a formerly enslaved man in New England until the publication of his first memoir in 1825. William Grimes was forced to resettle and wander through Connecticut and Rhode Island because of poverty and insecurity. He is most associated with Litchfield, CT and New Haven CT where he spent the most time and which figure most prominently in his life narrative. The peripatetic movement should demonstrate that even in New England, the plight of the fugitive was never secure. The gif file is here or you can see the gif on You Tube. I created an additional Gif tracking his travels in the Southern States which I shall also share. https://youtu.be/OaZF7h_SuD0 https://youtu.be/OaZF7h_SuD0 https://youtu.be/OaZF7h_SuD0
