Just a note that the map of underground railroad routes omits the route most used by Harriet Tubman (prominently mentioned in the article), across the DelMarVa peninsula to Philadelphia. It's not clear how that can be fixed, but it's a notable omission. Thosem (talk) 13:35, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

People of African descent[edit]

Was the underground railway limited to slaves that were of African descent? Were non-Africans not allowed to use it?203.80.61.102 (talk) 04:50, 22 December 2016 (UTC)

The Underground Railroad was a means to help enslaved Africans—who, beside Native Americans, were the only people enslaved in the United States during the 19th century. The Underground Railroad, as the first sentence of this article says, help escaped Africans find their way North to free states and Canada, but (as the second sentence of this article says) it was made up of people of all races. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 05:23, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
