In the 1800s, the Underground Railroad was a system of secret routes and safe places to hide for black slaves trying to escape to freedom. This powerful book examines historical evidence, such as slave auction posters, engravings, photographs, and first-person interviews, that either supported slavery or called for its abolition. Uncovering the Past: Analyzing Primary Sources History is in the past, but the way we view it is always changing. This remarkable series examines the historical evidence of events in history giving insight into why evidence is created and by whom, how it can be analyzed and interpreted in various ways, and how controversies in history can develop.
