Underground Railroad History in Appalachia: A Student Adventure

1:30 - 2:20 PM

In March 2022, a group of 15 Sinclair students were taken into the Appalachian region to explore the sights and stories of the Underground Railroad pre-Civil war era. Scholars from Marshall University and Ohio University shared their knowledge during evening lectures. During the day students toured historic sites and had opportunities to talk with regional people about the region and its history. This session will report on the lessons learned as well as student responses.
