William M. Cockrum. The Underground Railroad was instrumental in facilitating the escape of 500-1,000 blacks per year from the South to Canada. Many left from various points in Kentucky and crossed Indiana and Michigan en route to freedom. This work is primarily concerned with the traffic through Indiana, and the exciting events it engendered. It includes a map showing the routes used, and photos of some of the activists in the Anti-Slavery League. The author also wrote the Pioneer History of Indiana.
