http://www.cultureandtourism.org/cct/lib/cct/FreedomTrail_Brochure_final.pdf

This is a brochure of the Connecticut Freedom Trail. It has information on the Amistad Case, and other abolitionist information all relative to Connecticut. This is a very useful source because we have already used some information from the Connecticut freedom trail before, and we know it to be a reliable source. This site can help us gain an overview of information that will lead us down our quest to provide proof of Suffield’s involvement in the Underground Railroad.

This is a link to the online book by Wilbur Siebert called “The Underground Railroad: From Slavery to Freedom”. There are 11 chapters and 5 pages of the appendix of Underground Railroad knowledge. This source would be very reliable because it is a primary source. There are five pages for the table of contents that we can use to skim through for knowledge. The first section on the first page of the table of contents is the Underground Railroad as a subject for research.

This link contains an overview of all of the information in each box and folder that is in Siebert collection. There are letters, notes, manuscripts, maps, and photographs that are all relative to the Underground Railroad. This source could be labeled as extremely reliable because it is from the Ohio Historical Society. This could be used as an integral part of our search. We would pick out the parts that seemed relative to our class and then we could search for those specific documents.
