This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Underground Railroad. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
As slavery grew it became more and more controversial. As determined as the South was to keep it, the North was equally determined to get rid of it. Citizens of various persuasions actively participated in helping slaves find freedom through the Underground Railroad.
This movement helped thousands of slaves find freedom by escaping the South to the North or even Canada.
This presentation covers this movement, how it came to be, and some of the key players in the movement:
History of the Railroad
Fugitive Slave Law: 1793
Compromise of 1850
The Quakers (2)
Map of the Underground Railroad
