Whispers of Angels: Buffalo and the Underground Railroad

What role did Buffalo, New York play in the Underground Railroad? Young historians investigate the Underground Railroad ties to Buffalo and western New York. They create a web site or multimedia presentation based on the research. If you're outside of New York and looking for a way to make this lesson more relevant to your learners, consider having them research whether or not there was any involvement in the Underground Railroad in your specific area.
