The Underground Railroad (book)
The Underground Railroad Records is a 1872 book by William Still. It is subtitled A record of facts, authentic narratives, letters, &c., narrating the hardships, hair-breadth escapes and death struggles of the slaves in their efforts for freedom, as related by themselves and others, or witnessed by the author; together with sketches of some of the largest stockholders, and most liberal aiders and advisers, of the road
It chronicles the stories and methods of some 649 slaves who escaped to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Still, known as the father of the Underground Railroad, used his detailed documentation of those he helped to escape in the Underground Railroad Records. While working with the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society, Still worked with a fugitive slave who, he eventually realized, was his long-lost brother.
