The Underground Railroad was neither underground nor a
railroad, but a system of loosely connected safe havens
where those escaping the brutal conditions of slavery
were sheltered, fed, clothed, nursed, concealed, disguised,
and instructed during their journey to freedom. Although
this movement was one of America's greatest social.
moral, and humanitarian endeavors, the details about it
were often cloaked in secrecy to protect those involved
from retribution of civil law and slave catchers.
Ohio's history has been permanently
shaped by the thousands of runaway
slaves passing through or finding permanent
residence in this state.
