Underground Railroad Research Forum
Re: More Independent Research
In Response To: Re: More Independent Research ()
Thank you for your kind response to this message. When I was researching my book, some of the information I needed was not readily available. It took me over twenty years to feel comfortable enough to put the information in book form. So it does not surprise me that there is not a lot of information on this board. When I was researching the Underground Railroad and found new information none of the African American Historians I contacted were interested. Several told me that they were using printed sources (William Still, Frederick Douglas, and Harriet Tubman), yet most of the Conductors and participants on the Railroad were not written about.
That is what prompted me to write my book and enclose what I found in it. I am grateful for this forum, and others like it where I can share my information.
