The Underground Railroad in Burlington and Ironton, Ohio
Instructor:  Chris Saunders
 
The state of Ohio had the most active network of the Underground Railroad than any other state in the Union.  Lawrence County, the southernmost county in Ohio, bordered the slave states of Virginia and Kentucky.  Countless enslaved African-Americans first tasted freedom after crossing the Ohio River into Burlington and Ironton, Ohio.
 
This session, using primary sources, will identify and give biographical sketches of the individuals of various ethnicities and religious beliefs who worked together in an informal network of safe houses and escape routes to help enslaved African-Americans to freedom in the northern states and Canada.
 
The objective of this session is to bring local history to life and to remember the sacrifices made by the men and women in the nation’s first civil rights movement.  Following the sessions, attendees will have a better understanding of the lives of those persecuted by the peculiar institution of slavery.  They will learn about the lives of several prominent abolitionists and Underground Railroad conductors, their sacrifices, and the escape routes they used.
