History of the Underground Railroad: In Chester and the Neighboring Counties of Pennsylvania

Sampul Depan
Stackpole Books, 2005 - 480 halaman
• Reprint of a significant primary source on the Underground Railroad
• Colorful information and anecdotes from the participants

Originally published in 1883 and long out of print, this remarkable volume examines the Underground Railroad as it operated in southeastern Pennsylvania. Based on interviews with those directly involved in the escaped slave network, it tells the stories of freedom seekers, those who helped them, and the places they hid. A new introduction by Christopher Densmore places the book in its historical context and assesses the work in light of more recent scholarship.
