What do we know about the Underground Railroad in Indiana?

The Underground Railroad (UGRR) was a locally-organized and secretive network of individuals and groups who were willing to aid fugitive slaves as they sought freedom. Researching the Underground Railroad can be difficult, due to the secret nature of the enterprise, but we do know some things about the Underground Railroad in Indiana. See IHB's publications at http://www.in.gov/history/2336.htm .  For more information about the Underground Railroad in Indiana, see DNR's listing of UGRR sites (http://www.in.gov/dnr/historic/4120.htm) or contact Indiana Freedom Trails (http://www.indianafreedomtrails.org/)
