I have no doubt that extensive research lies behind this book I do not doubt its accuracy It is filled with details about the growth of antislavery organizations but as the book clearly states the Underground Railroad was in reality an umbrella association of independent sometimes competing groups which very much relied on the efforts of single individuals It was not controlled from the top The book focuses upon the antislavery proponents that lived in New York This is partially explained by the fact that New York was home to the North s largest free black community but New York plays such a prominent role that this should be indicated in the title In addition the Underground Railroad was not hidden everyone knew of it The title is misleading and it implies that you will be given a exciting story than what is delivered The book description goes on to say that the city s underground railroad agents helped than 3000 fugitive slaves reach freedom between 1830 and 1860 Until now their stories have remained largely unknown The central focus of this book is not the plight of these fugitives Their stories are primarily collected in one chapter chapter seven near the book s end No the main focus is instead a plethora of historical details of the growth of the movement its weak organization its factional divisions its agents funding and slavery s ties with business Relevant laws and to what extent they were actually enforced court proceedings and supportive publications are covered in detail The book is rather dry The book lacks structure It would be easier to remember all the laws fugitive cases leaders and controversies if the text had been better organized into a cohesive structure The details become a jumble in my head There are uotes that are of little importance and other superfluous information too Better editing pleaseSo the Underground Railroad saved about 3 to 4000 fugitives the numbers being extremely hard to verify but the slave population was 4 million in the South 01 % benefited Of course it was still important but it was weakly organized and depended to a very large extent on the efforts of private individuals All of this is good to knowThe narration of the audiobook by J D Jackson was clear and easy to follow as long as I didn t fall asleepNow I am going to read Twelve Years a Slave It will be good to understand the laws and conditions of life in the antebellum era as a background to the personal tale of the second bookETA Thought I should mention that the 40 million figure is not found in the book by Foner My source is instead the book Capital in the Twenty First Century byThomas Piketty On page 159 one can read the following By 1860 the proportion of slaves in the overall population of the United States had fallen to around 15 percent about 4 million slaves in a total population of 30 million owing to rapid population growth in the North and West In the South however the proportion remained at 40% 4 million slaves and 6 million whites for a total population of 10 million Hard as Steel Hard Ink #45;

A time of ultimate polarization over the ultimate wedge issue I am a bit partisan in my politics and my world view can often have good guys and bad guys weighing heavily in it The Issue of Slavery which is not debatable today was a sectional hot button issue once There were two contending sides and history now judges rightly one side on the side of angels and other with a sulfurous tinge to it Abolitionists who were filled with justified anger form an underground railroad a network with a huge amount of organization from free African Americans philanthropists Journalists religious leaders radicals formed to bring slaves up a north and later to Canada and focus a spotlight on Slavery and make it a national issue The I read about this movement that was very controversial at the time I think about the Ferguson protests and various movements that are noisy uncomfortable and divisive No one knows if say occupy or the teaparty will be judged the angel or demon in the future but in todays climate of polarization people are taking sides Is the polarization needless right now I don t know Was it needless then resoundingly no This issue had to be faced and polarization was the price of a conscience working its will in history This book is one of those chin scratchers of a history book Not for their time but for ours

Impeccably academic slightly dry but pleasantly readable Gateway s scope is smaller than the title suggests Foner s focus is on New York City s anti slavery movement and touches on Pennsylvania upstate New York and New England only to the extent that they interact with the NYC movements And since he sticks to documentary evidence much of which was destroyed after the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 made aiding fugitives even riskier the book is short on experiences of actual passengers But the politics of anti slavery are well addressed and eye opening for me There were bitter arguments over whether relocation of former slaves to Africa should be promoted and even over whether money should be spent on aiding individual fugitives
