The Shores of Freedom: The Maritime Underground Railroad in North Carolina, 1800-1861

Record #:
In the 19th century before the Civil War, escaped slaves and their collaborators established escape routes by sea to leave North Carolina. This version of the Underground Railroad in Wilmington and other sea ports were so effective during the 1st half of the century that runaway slaves often ran to the coast instead of heading north to reach freedom through overland routes.
