As we have disscussed, your analysis seems very plausable to me. The value of your training as a lawyer has enabled you to do some very through post investigative research about the operation of the Underground Railroad in (Western) Virginia. Your research touches the very core about the necessity for secracy on the the Underground Railroad.
For individuals and families involved with operating the Underground Railroad South of the Mason Dixon Line, the risk was death! For individuals and families who operated the Underground Railroad North of the Mason Dixon Line, the risk was imprisonment.
Keep up your great research about the Underground Railroad in West Virginia!
