The Underground Railroad (UGRR) was neither underground nor a railroad.  The UGRR refers to the network of individuals and communities that helped fugitive slaves.  Sometimes the assistance was spontaneous, other times highly organized.  Because aiding an escaping slave was illegal, the activity was usually carried out in secret.    Learn about the Underground Railroad in Indiana, the types of people who might have participated, and what myths you should not believe.   Historian Jeannie Regan-Dinius will give this 1 hour lecture ont he Underground Railroad in Indiana.
