they attempted to end slavery by hiding slaves in their house and helping them escape slavery through the underground railroad. the underground railroad was an escape route for slaves to escape the harsh cruelty of slavery. the underground railroad is not a railroad underground.
They called it the underground railroad because it was hidden which is kind of like underground and it was a railroad because they had a route they followed like a train hence the name underground railroad
No, Harriet Tubman did not dig the underground railroad because the underground railroad was not a physical thing that was dug. The underground railroad was a cahain of houses and hiding places, and not an actual railroad.
The 'passengers' of the Underground Railroad were enslaved African Americans and 'conductors' were abolitionists (people against slavery). But remember, the Underground Railroad wasn't underground and wasn't an actual railroad
no. the underground railroad was a secret (underground) chain of people who would help slaves reach freedom. the "railroad" part of the underground railroad was simply a way to refer to the chain of people that runaway slaves would stay with.
The Underground Railroad stopped when Harriet Tubman's owner discovered that Harriet Tubman had escaped and went through the Underground Railroad? He then found out that the Underground Railroad was the key to escaping away from the South to the North.
