Underground Railroad, American Civil War
Most African Americans resisted enslavement. Whenever possible, individuals attempted to liberate themselves by running away. This Web site explores the history of the Underground Railroad that existed in the early 19th century to help enslaved people flee the South. The site contains topic headings, a chronology of events, photographs, maps, and more!
