Underground Railroad Route Maps

Here is an map showing the route of the Underground Railroad through Indiana. Of note, Russiaville is listed along the route as Russia V. While New London was probably more active in the Underground Railroad than Russiaville, due to the influence of the Quakers from the New London Friends Church, Russiaville was the larger town and so made it onto the map.
