        Freedom's Land

        This segment from Underground Railroad: The William Still Story explains how the Underground Railroad came to be extended all the way to Canada. Canada, under British Rule, had made slavery illegal for years prior to the mass exodus of fugitive slaves. Slaves continued to escape to Canada despite horrible stories told by slave-owners about the supposed deplorable conditions in Canada. Lesson plans cover Hidden Messages in Spirituals, and Travel on the Underground Railroad.
