This is Levi Coffin - he and his wife helped over 2000 Slaves escape.  He was a Quaker, many of this faith were also involved in the British abolition movement and in improving factory conditions for workers.

Code language: Use this language and the atlas to plot a rout from the state of Kentucky to the City of Detroit.


Members of the Underground Railroad often used specific code-words, based on the metaphor of the railway. For example:

  • People who helped slaves find the railroad were "agents" (or "shepherds")

  • Guides were known as "conductors"

  • Hiding places were "stations" or "way stations"

  • "Station masters" hid slaves in their homes

  • Escaped slaves were referred to as "passengers" or "cargo"

  • Slaves would obtain a "ticket"

  • Similar to common gospel lore, the "wheels would keep on turning"

  • Financial benefactors of the Railroad were known as "stockholders"[25]
