    Does the pere Marquette rail way have anything to do with the freedom trail

    Lorene Bridgen - April 10, 2019 reply

    Dear David,

    As far as I am aware the Pere Marquette Railway began operations after the Underground Railroad movement period which was roughly between the late 1700s until the mid 1860s. In addition, the Underground Railroad was not an actual Railroad but a secret network of paths and hiding spots taken to arrive to either a Free State or Canada which had abolished slavery in 1834.

    Thank you for your inquiry.
