The Underground Railroad was responsible for assisting thousands of slaves escape from slavery into freedom. They were assisted by people they named "conductors".  No individual organization was responsible for helping the fugitive slaves; the Slaves were assisted by whites but mostly blacks who provided the means for them to escape to the North and Canada. The following links are an account of the journey from slavery to freedom.
