Ohio was an important route on the Underground Railroad, which was neither
underground or a railroad. It was a loose network of safe houses operated
mostly by church members, free blacks and others opposed to slavery. Ohio
was the only state in which a slave could run all the way to Canada after
crossing the Ohio river.  There was close to 400 documented sites that were
in Ohio.......
