Abstract:

The Underground Railroad was not a transportation system with metal tracks and whistling trains that zipped along a grid of tracks through tunnels below the ground.

Climb aboard to travel back in time and find out how this system of "passengers," "conductors," and "stationmasters" saved thousands of lives and helped change the nation.
