Mapping the Undergound Railroad Route

(1/2) > >>

Please post ideas and feedback on our methods and procedures to map the route

Dr. Thomas:
The Young Preservationists Association of Pittsburgh would like to assist you in mapping some of the Underground Railroad sites in southwestern PA for the bicycle tour that is being planned.  We have Board Members and contacts in nearly every county, and Larry Glasco, a professor of African American history at Pitt, is on our Advisory Committee.

Let me know how we can help.
-Dan Holland, Chair
