Description

Provides a brief history of slavery in America from 1450-1865 and describes how slaves were brought to freedom through the Underground Railroad (UGRR) with a map of the escape routes.

The Underground Railroad was a network of secret routes and safe houses used by 19th-century black slaves in the United States to escape to free states and Canada with the aid of abolitionists and allies who were sympathetic to their cause. The term "Underground Railroad" is often used to apply to the abolitionists themselves, both black and white, free and enslaved, who aided the fugitives.

National Park Service UGRR Special Resource Study

Back in 1990, Congress instructed the National Park Service to perform a special resource study of the Underground Railroad, its routes and operations in order to preserve and interpret this aspect of United States history. As a byproduct of the study, the National Park Service carried out an analysis of slavery and abolitionism and identified the primary escape routes used on the UGRR.
