Slaves were uncomfortable!
The Underground Railroad was a series of free blacks and Northerners who were against slavery that would guide slaves up to the North to Freedom. It wasn't an actual railroad, but at times it went underground to hide slaves. It was coined "Underground Railroad" so slave masters wouldn't know what it really was, and it was almost like a railroad. The main people who came directly to the slaves and guided them along the "Railroad"… Read More

Most enslaved people had to make the beginning portion (the most difficult part) of their journey on their own. There are instances of people going into the south to guide enslaved people north, but that was not the usual case for most people who escaped.
There were several like William Still who was sometimes called "The Father of the Underground Railroad", Harriet Tubman(sometimes the slaves called her Moses), Levi Coffin helped over 100 slaves every year for 33 years and William Lloyd Garrison(one of the founders of the American Anti-Slavery Society).

The underground railroad were a series of underground passages that led to "safe houses" for the slaves. The slaves could stop at these houses for food and rest without fear of being turned in. The passages, or underground railroad, led to states where slavery was illegal and therefore they gained their freedom.
== == Methods of Escape Slaves passed information about methods of escape by word-of-mouth, in stories, and through songs. No actual trains existed on the Underground Railroad, but guides were called conductors and the hiding places that they used, depots or stations. Runaways escaped to the North along a loosely connected series of routes that stretched through the southern border states. Guided north by the stars and sometimes singing traditional songs like "Follow the Drinking… Read More
Although some sources list that Harriet Tubman was born on March 10th, 1820, her actual date of birth is likely between 1820 and 1822, and possibly as late as 1825. Records were not organized or centralized, especially for slaves, during that period. Harriet Tubman was born in 1820 and she died March 10, 1913 at the age 93. Since Harriet Tubman was a slave, her owner did not record her birthdate. Yet they did record… Read More

William Still is often regarded as the primary influence of the Underground Railroad. He wrote a book on his participation called "The Underground Railroad". However, it was a somewhat more spontaneous thing, as such things always form in such conditions. The Society of Friends were probably the key "makers" of the Underground Railroad.
the underground railroad was dangerous because on the way whites could turn you in, you could die from getting sick, or you could freez

The Old Testament stated that in Egypt, the Pharoh had slaves, also known as the isrealites, working on his pyrimids. These slaves were later saved by Moses.
The person is currently unknown. Harriet Tubman used the Underground Railroad to escape slavery, so she didn't create it. A man ran away back when trains were still popular and the master couldn't find him, so he exclaimed, "He must have went on the Underground Railroad!" and the name sort of stuck.
the underground railroad was established in the 1790s by Issac Hopper and the underground rail round is to help people from getting away from slavery
All molds are a fungus. It is both the most cost and the most effective fungicide (fungus killer) is sodium hypochlorite also known as common bleach. When NaOCl (bleach) is used properly it will kill all and every fungal mold (deuteromycota) also known as fungi imperfecti. Common concentrations at 15% bleach and 85% water. There is rarely a reason to use any other chemicals. Just how well and how does sodium hypochlorite do this? On… Read More

I think that even though the narcissist knows that you care for them, they can't help but sabatoge a potentially good and healthy relationship with someone who is trustworthy because they are not comfortable with a stable, secure person. They are more comfortable and "at home" with someone who is sure to betray and reject them. Narcissists don't care if you still need THEM -- its whether or not they still need YOU or not… Read More

Most of the beginning slaves would be mett by Harriet Tubman and she would either lead them herself, or tell them where they could run to. The first stop usually was an abolitionist house in disguise. The people who would take care of, hide, and feed the slaves would have a lantern in their window to… Read More
That option might have been taken had the South remained in the Union and excepted some kind of peaceful political solution to the slavery question. As it was, since the country had had to spend millions and millions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives to sustain the Union and Lincoln had simply declared most slaves to be free, there was no political sentiment whatsoever for further compensation. Michael Montagne

It' s been estimated that around twelve million Africans were uprooted from their homeland and sold into a life of slavery between 1450 and 1850.

In the United States, because of the… Read More

The South had several advantages over the North. First, the South was fighting for preservation; if they lost the war, the North would crush their government and re-absorb them back into the Union. These Southern men were fighting for a cause they believed in, which makes them much more motivated and determined than their Northern counterparts, who were on a campaign to conquest. Second, for the latter portion of the war the battles were fought… Read More
About 60% or 15 million slaves
The practice was as old as time. Slaves were in Egypt and later in Rome. Slaves were kept when one clan captured a rival clan and killed most of the rivals, keeping a few around to work for them. American Indians kept captured members of rival tribes as slaves, often as slave wives to important members of the tribe. It was a barbaric practice and should never have been brought to here by the Europeans… Read More

No, he was an author and speaker against slavery. He himself escaped slavery with the help of a free black woman in 1838, at the age of 20. He took a one-day trip in a sailor's disguise, from Maryland to New York City. After 8 years as a fugitive, abolitionists sent him on a speaking tour to England and Ireland, during which friends located his owner in Maryland and negotiated his freedom. He became a… Read More

She was called Moses (and if you ask me was very similar and deserved this title!) because she led people through the underground tunnel from slavery to freedom and safety!
She was the property of Edward Brodress (deceased) or his estate and had been hired out to Dr. Anthony Thompson when she made her escape to freedom.
Answer The south had an advantage because they knew what they were fighting for whereas the North wasn't quite sure. The south was fighting for their way of life. They were fighting because they didn't want to give their slaves up and they wanted their own government to be able to rule themselves. They didn't agree with the Democratic ways of the North's judicial system. the north was a free land but the south oh… Read More
Lots of people who worked on the construction of the first part of the London Underground (1860-1863), most notably Sir John Fowler. There has never been a specific station for 'Central London', only the various termini coming into the capital, terminating at an agreed (The 1846 Royal Commission on Metropolitan Railway Termini) line that no railway would traverse - a line that now forms the Circle line. One specific person can not be named… Read More

She is called the "Moses" of her people - she is also known as General Tubman. She did not have a nickname when she was a slave; when she started to save people from slavery her nickname was 'Moses' - an allusion to the prophet Moses who led the Hebrews to freedom. Her nickname was Moses because she led so many people out of slavery and she never got caught and led them to freedom!!
