Underground Railroad in New York State

Geography and politics conspired to make New York State a key link in the Underground Railroad. Though often romanticized, particularly concerning the role of Caucasians in its operation, there is no doubt that many fugitives from slavery followed the Underground Railroad on their way to freedom in Canada, or to destinations in safe proximity to the Canadian border. The purpose of this website is to catalogue information on the People and Places of New York that were involved in the activities of the Underground Railroad, and to provide reliable information about their role in African Americans' struggle for freedom.
