Larry Gara, Brenda E. Stevenson, & C. Peter Ripley. Includes essays by 3 historians that describe the Underground Railroad (UR), the name given to the many ways that blacks took to escape slavery in the southern U.S. before the Civil War. The UR story is like nothing else in American history: a secret enterprise that today is famous, an association many claim but few can document, an illegal activity now regarded as noble, a network that was neither underground nor a railroad, yet a system that operated through the committed acts of courage & kindness of individuals unknown to each other. Brings together court records, buildings, letters, & individual memories. Color photos & drawings. Beautiful presentation.
