Product Description

All aboard the Underground Railroad---a railroad without tracks and trains, where the "passengers" were slaves escaping to freedom in the North! No one knows where the term "Underground Railroad" came from---there were no trains or tracks, only abolitionist "conductors" who helped bring an estimated 100,000 slaves to freedom through elaborate routes that included "stations", safe houses where fugitives could rest before moving on, and a system of codes and signals used to identify friend from foe. Including real stories, 80 black-and-white illustrations throughout, and a 16-page black-and-white photo insert.
