520    Two Boxcars. On October 15th 1862, two boxcars carrying 
       110 "contraband" (slaves freed during the Civil War), 
       arrived in Elgin, Illinois. These refugees of war made 
       Elgin their home. Three blocks. Many of the ex-slaves 
       built homes in a three block area on Elgin's northeast 
       side. This neighborhood became known as The Settlement and
       was the heart of Elgin's African American community for 
       more than 100 years. One city. This is a story of race, 
       racism and race-relations in Elgin.
