  • Detailed maps trace the routes runaway slaves followed
  • Explores the impact of geography, transportation, free blacks, and members of religious congregations on the Underground Railroad
  • Information on modern roads and landmarks allows readers to retrace escape paths

    In a companion volume to his highly regarded Underground Railroad in Pennsylvania (0-8117-1629-5), William J. Switala focuses on the escaped-slave network in the eastern border states of Delaware and Maryland, as well as the region that became West Virginia in 1863. Using fresh and extensive research, Switala fills a glaring void in the historical record of this important topic. Full of vivid anecdotes and lucid reconstructions, this book brings the Underground Railroad to life for the modern reader
