About

Overview

No one knows where the term "Underground Railroad" originated, but the loose network that helped countless slaves to freedom was certainly no myth. Through its offices, slaves were able to find their way to the northern United States, Canada, and even to Mexico, often traveling thousands of miles as "conductors" facilitated their journeys from station to station.
