During the 1800s, a secret movement known as the Underground Railroad ferried thousands of southern slaves to freedom in the North. Its most visible "conductor" was Harriet Tubman, but she was just one participant in an astoundingly broad movement that included many unlikely players. Journalist Fergus Bordewich has pulled together the history of the Underground Railroad.
