Who Traveled the Underground Railroad?

How do we know about the slaves who escaped using what is known as the Underground Railroad, and about the people that organized it? What were they escaping from, and what happened to them? This book shows how we know about the fugitives and their experiences from primary and other sources. It includes information on some historical detective work that has taken place, using documentary and archaeological evidence, that has enabled historians to piece together the fascinating story of the Underground Railroad.

Reviews

School Library Journal - Mary Mueller, Rolla Public Schools, MO

"“History Detectives” sidebars introduce readers to the basics of primary source research, such as how to find, critically evaluate, and use sources. Maps, charts, and large illustrations and photos add interest, while sidebars introduce important figures, excerpt documents, or pose critical thinking questions. . . .Similar topics have received wide extant coverage, but these titles provide enough material and research guidance to be good supplementary report choices." - School Library Journal
