Underground Railroad 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

My son had a civil war project at school. Based on that, I bought this to solidify what he had already learned. It was a very good description of American history, that helped illuminate what we had all learned from our history classes. To get a visual of what occured in the past was more powerful that just reading the text froma book. Well worth it!!
