LEARNING ABOUT THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD ON THE HARRIET TUBMAN TRAIL IN DELAWARE
The November release of the movie Harriet reawakened interest in heroic Harriet Tubman, a former slave who helped her family and others escape slavery in the south before the Civil War. Children will learn about the Underground Railroad in school, but a newly designated historic route in Delaware, the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway, brings it to life along the same route used by Tubman and the slaves she led to freedom.
