This open shackle represents the freedom eventually gained by enslaved persons from the horrors of the slave trade in the United States, as embodied by the Anderson Slave Pen at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Freedom was too long in coming, but gained by most at the end of the Civil War.
