The underground railroad helped the slaves get to freedom in Canada. If there was no Underground railroad there would still be slaves today.
It starts in 1810 and ends in1850
Important people involved in the underground railroad were, Harriet Tubman, and Henry "box" Brown. those are some important people involved.
... :) White people
No she wasn't, because she knew shortcuts to where to go to when she was leading people to the Underground 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.
It is an estimate that 3,000 people worked on the underground railroad.
The underground railroad was important to many slaves because of there skin color they were beginning sold to people and they were beginning separated from there family and beginning told what to do. Now they would follow the north star at night and if they see a quilt and if there is a blue color in the middle it is the Underground railroad but you have to be careful because it can be a trick. The Underground railroad IS NOT A RAIL ROAD OR IS NOT UNDERGROUND. The underground railroad helped slaves to be free.
from the people who hated slavery so they made the underground railroad.
No offence black people. but the answer is it was the place of freedom southern people had slaves so black people moved north on the underground railroad but it wasn't really under ground
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
The underground railroad started in 1923 (some say it started in 1619) by Harriet Tubman. It started in the South and in the north. it was NOT started by Harriet Tubman. It was started by Isaac Hopper in 1787 and he is known as the father of the underground railroad. Harriet was just one of the important people that helped with the railroad.
Well, the people using the Underground Railroad were black slaves. Lots of the "conductors" of the Underground Railroad were ex-slaves.
There were a lot of people involved in the Underground Railroad, but you're probably looking for Harriet Tubman.
because the underground railroad was for people in the slavery used to escape from
The Underground Railroad was an important historical happening. It was developed between people who wanted to help free slaves. People traveled from the south to the north and back, using known routes to help free men.
The people who made the Underground Railroad work were called "Conductors". An example of a Conductor is Harriet Tubman.
I believe you mean what was the underground railroad used for. And the answer to that is, during slavery, it set people free because no slave owners knew about it and that is how slaves would escape from slavery/slave owners.
There was an Underground Railroad to help enslaved African Americans get to the North where they could be free. It was a system on abolitionists (people who were against slavery) who helped them hide and get to the North safely. And remember, the Underground Railroad wasn't underground and it wasn't a railroad either
Yes they did and that is why it was so amazingly secrative. Yes because some of the whites helped the slaves get to freedom by using the Underground Railroad.
about a thousand people
