Underground Railroad in Delaware, Maryland, and West Virginia

by William J. Switala
£16.99   paperback  Stackpole Books (2004)

Underground Railroad in Delaware, Maryland, and West Virginia by William J. Switala This book presents detailed maps that trace the routes runaway slaves followed. It explores the impact of geography, transportation, free blacks, and members of religious congregations on the Underground Railroad. 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.
