The underground railroad was a tunnel/path that lead many slaves to their freedom. The path lead to Canada and other several parts of north U.S. where slavery was banned. Harriet Tubman lead the underground railway with many others including white people who assisted her including Frederick Douglass.
Slaves were treated horribly but there were slave owners that feed the slaves good meals and gave them places to sleep. That is only a tiny bit of the slave owners though. Many abolitionists tried their hardest to try to end slavery. Slavery did not end until the late 1960s. This pictures shows all the slaves this slave owner owns they do not seem too happy to work for him.
