How long?
  • The UnderGround Railroad ran in a zigzag. The
    tracks couldnt be strait because it would be too
    easy to catch the runaways. Safety was very
    important. Sometimes you had to go south to fool
    the hunters.

7
Travel
  • Some people said it was easier to travel in the
    winter and some said summer. If you traveled in
    the summer you would have berries and small
    animals for food but it was easier for hunters to
    find you. Winter would be bitter and cold. But
    there were good reasons for going then.
