Prior to abolition in 1865, as many as 40,000 people made the perilous trip north to freedom in Canada with the help of the Underground Railroad. The story of the Underground Railroad is one of suffering and of bravery, and is not only one of escape from slavery but of beginnings: of people who carved out a new life for themselves in risky, difficult circumstances.
