dc.description.abstractThe Underground Railroad has been characterized by one historian of the Negro race as a "safety valve to the inst1tut1an of slavery" s1nce it tended to remove from the slave states these Negroes whose special abilities and leadership might have involved them in insurrection. Whether or not those Negroes wh0 made it to Canada were extraordinary members of the1r race, is an open question. It is the purpose of this paper to record what those refugees found when they arrived in Canada, and how they made their living there. "Farewe1l," sang the slaves as they made their plans "old master, Don't come after me. I'm on my way to Canada where colored men are free. . . "en_US
