TheRailroadtoFreedom Photo The Underground Railroad, a network of safe routes, refuges and transportation for escaping slaves, thrived in the US between the late 1700s and the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. The conductors were usually runaway slaves themselves, committed to assisting others who were escaping bondage. That the Underground Railroad was ever necessary was shameful; that some 30,000 courageous people used it was a triumph of human spirit.
