All about the undergroundrailroad

By Tianna D.
Wyoming, Age 8

The underground railroad is not where you go underground. the underground railroad is where slaves the black people went to be slaves. some slaves would sneak out in the night and try to find a good peoples house. some would get taken away by the heavy boots. the slaves could tell if it was a good persons house or the bad peoples house because the good peoples houses had a blanket with a light on or the people will sing to let them know that come here we will help you hide from the heavy boots. the heavy boots house had no light on no cloth no singing people.
