Underground Railroad, The In the 1800's The Underground Railroad was a system of secret routes and safe houses for people fleeing slavery and trying to escape north to freedom. The subtitle of this book is 'Uncovering the Past, Analysing Primary Sources' which is is exactly what it does so clearly and intelligently, presenting a wealth of archive material and involving the reader in its interpretation. Each illustrated double page (with photographs, paintings, copies of posters etc) gives an engrossing account of how the 'Railroad' operated whilst showing how historical judgements are made using multiple sources.
