Gwendolyn Wright from The History Detectives has a mission: to determine if Anne Zorela's antique map is a diagram of the Underground Railroad routes. One reason Anne believes the map is authentic is because of the Quaker meeting houses pictured. The Quakers helped fugitive slaves along the railroad routes. The documented region was also a known hotbed of Underground Railroad activity. These and other reasons have her convinced but she wants more proof to support her conclusion. Professor Gwendolyn Wright disagrees with Anne because fugitives as well as conductors and helpers on the Railroad would've been discovered and killed if a map fell into the wrong hands.
