The Underground Railroad, often remembered as being characterized by tunnels, dark of night escapes, coded language and hidey-holes, was far more extensive and complex than these ideas lead us to believe. The Capital Region was home to many abolitionists working to abolish the institution of slavery in our state and nation and it was visited by many who had escaped enslavement and sought a life of freedom. Meet the historic people who lived and worked in the Capital Region and who came here seeking a life their freedom. Learn about this new interpretation of a very old story.
