The Underground Railroad was a system developed before the Civil War to guide slaves to freedom. Although it seems simple the system was expansive, highly secretive, and dangerous to participants and assistants. Pennsylvania had a unique position along the Mason-Dixon Line. It was a free state with a large free, African American population and strong abolitionist fervor. The Network to Freedom is a National Park Service program that recognized sites important on the Underground Railroad. Along the Susquehanna, the historic bridge piers and canal ruins are recognized as an important conduit on the Network to Freedom. Join us for three lectures to better understand the Underground Railroad network that worked in the Susquehanna National Heritage Area of York & Lancaster Counties. Lecture description and speaker information is below. Doors open at 6:00 PM. Light refreshments will be served.
