We were rowing "Follow the Drinking Gourd" this week and really enjoyed it. I found a couple more links that I don't think were in the archives. One of the link explains about the song "Follow the Drinking Gourd" and what it means. This in the link: http://www.42explore2.com/undergrd.htm .

The second link has pictures of where the slaves would hide when they were escaping (in a wagon or hidden room) and also has a map of the escape routes the slaves used for the underground railroad. This is the other link: http://www.waynet.org/levicoffin/default.htm .

I've never posted links on the board so I hope this comes out right. I just wanted to share what I found this week and hope it helps others! :)
