This program helps students understand how the Underground Railroad really operated. Between 1830 and 1865, fugitive slaves followed a network of safe routes and houses north to the free states. With the help of people like Harriet Tubman, many slaves escaped to freedom. Students will learn why the Underground Railroad was organized and who was involved in helping it move forward.
