There were those who were actively involved in the Underground Railroad, along with the “freedom seekers” themselves. On the other hand, there were others that were not involved for a variety of reasons; conceivably, considering the consequential outcomes, or perhaps they just didn`t feel that strongly against slavery.
This work pays tribute to those people who were fueled by their beliefs and convictions. Evidence suggests that the “inner light” might have provided the key prompt regarding their decision making, based upon the principle of freedom. Selective documentation is examined, along with family oral and written history. Investigations with supportive evidence are analyzed; yielding the author`s noted perspective; continually open to adjustment through future research findings.
