A Hobson’s Choice being offered Ukranians in occupied areas: stay with little resources or go to Russia, maybe as many as 6,ooo miles from home.

McHenry County Blog mainly covers local stuff, but what is happening in Russia reminds me of the Underground Railroad in McHenry County.
I haven’t seen a map showing routes, but I’ve read one was Cherry Valley Road through Bull Valley.
A stop on the route was probably the Terwilger House.
The Free Methodist in Marengo are also said to have been actively involved.
Sounds like something local tourism people should be promoting.,
