Routes of the Underground Railroad
A) The most comprehensive and detailed map of the routes of the Underground Railroad is provided by an interactive Google map available on-line – just click on the link below.
“This map shows the different routes which slaves took out of the south. All slaves did not necessarily head north, many of them went farther south to Mexico and to Florida where many set up successful farms in rural areas. Some slaves were able to escape by sea most of these slaves were picked up by ships at Charleston, South Carolina, Savannah, Georgia and Wilmington, North Carolina. This map also shows the escape route of Harriet Tubman and the many “stops” and networks she was able to establish.”
B) A broader map showing more destinations (particularly southern island destinations) is provided by a US National Parks Service map, is also available on-line – just click on the link below.
C) An interactive map showing sites and research facilities included in the US National Parks Service ‘National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom’ project, is also available on-line – just click on the link below.
D) For details of significant locations and events see the Locations page on this website.
Of course there are many other route maps available on the Internet with differing levels of detail, just Google “Underground Railroad Maps”.
