The Underground Railroad was neither underground nor a railroad. It got its name because its activities had to be carried out in secret.  The network of routes extended through 14 Northern states and “the promised land” of Canada.

If I were in life at the time I think I would help slave to escaped from slevery. because slave had a rash life, and they need help to find a better life. In my own experience as an imigrant I been help to come to the United State from El salvador. In my country I did not have a safety future. Those why I thing is important to help other if we can.
