In the 1800s, the Underground Railroad was a system of secret routes and safe places to hide for black slaves trying to escape to freedom. This astonishing book details the evidence that led up to the acceptance of slavery as well as the rejection of it. Readers will discover that when faced with evidence of the plight of slaves, such as slave auction posters, engravings, photographs, and interviews, white people had varying views depending on whether they benefited from slavery themselves. Readers will learn how prejudice and circumstances at the time of an event can influence people's interpretation of evidence and how that perspective can change over time. They will also learn how to use critical thinking in their own examinations of evidence. Present-day examples show how history repeats itself when evidence is denied or interpreted to one side's benefit.

Sorting myth from truth in this amazing tale of courage and heroism, Anne Schraff breathes new life into the story of the most famous “conductor” on the Underground Railroad. “I grew up like a neglected weed—ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it. Now I’ve been free, I know what a dreadful condition slavery is.” Harriet Tubman ran away from slavery in 1849, walking one hundred miles to freedom in the North. For the next sixteen years, Tubman risked her newfound freedom—and her life—to help about three hundred other slaves escape. During the Civil War, Tubman worked as a nurse and a scout for the Union army, and in her later years, she joined the struggle for the education of her people and for women’s rights.

In 1619, the first African slaves arrived in America. More than two hundred years later, African-American slaves continued to suffer under the cruelest and harshest conditions in the South. Slaves tried to escape, but it was difficult. However, during the mid-1800s, the Underground Railroad—a secret network of people and escape routes—finally gave many slaves hope. It helped thousands reach freedom. Author Carin T. Ford discusses the tragic story of slavery in American history, the heroes of the Underground Railroad, and the end of slavery in the United States.
