The Underground Railroad in Illinois

Written for grades 5 through 8. This well-researched study presents a great deal of information about the Underground Railroad in Illinois through its user-friendly, question-and-answer format. From "What was the Underground Railroad?" to "What were some of the methods slaves used to keep from getting caught?" to "How is Emancipation Day commemorated?" the 50 questions are designed to lead students to a fuller understanding of the period, the problems, and the people who grappled with them. With profiles of individuals and retellings of their stories, Turner makes the history of the era more personal and more memorable.
