— Historic Underground Railroad —The Underground Railroad was neither underground nor arailroad, but a system of loosely connected safe havenswhere those escaping the brutal conditions of slaverywere sheltered, fed, clothed, nursed, concealed, disguised,and instructed during their journey to freedom. Althoughthis movement was one of America's greatest social,moral, and humanitarian endeavors, the details about itwere often cloaked in secrecy to protect those involvedfrom the retribution of civil law and slave-catchers.
