Web Link to Underground Railroad
« on: July 05, 2004, 07:23:47 pm »
In developing the underground railroad route we want to identify and rate weblinks.  Below is the link to a National Geographic presentation.  Let me know what you think:

"You are a slave.
Your body, your time, your very breath belong to a farmer in 1850s Maryland. Six long days a week you tend his fields and make him rich. You have never tasted freedom. You never expect to."

I found this distance learning course on the underground railroad to be of value.  Take a look:

What was The Underground Railroad?

"For the many African Americans who lived in the Slave States prior to and during the American Civil War, the Underground Railroad provided them the opportunity and assistance for escaping slavery and finding freedom. One of the most curious characteristics of the Underground Railroad was its lack of formal organization. "
