Product Description
As a 4th grader, I became aware of the Underground Railroad and the part that my town--St. Albans,VT--played during that time in our history. People I knew lived in homes that were a part of the UGRR. I delivered papers to some in the 60s and 70s. I saw where one of the passageways began.

Although I learned second hand, I have tried to pass on my experiences to you including some first hand photos of 5 of the homes in my hometown that took part. There is a map slide to show proximity, and these 5 homes were only a small portion of those that played a role in the escape route. Only 15 miles south of Canada, and about 70 miles from Montreal, St. Albans later was victimized during the Civil war by southern raiders in 1864.

This lesson is perfect for helping scholars learn about this important part of history that brings reality (actual homes) into the abstract concept.
