What is the Saltwater Railroad?

The Saltwater Underground Railroad was a loose network of places and people that assisted runaway enslaved Africans in their quest for freedom. Traditionally, the Underground Railroad heads North to Canada,  but this virtual tour powered by Google Earth technology focuses on the lesser known Southern railroad path from Georgia, South Carolina and Florida to The Bahamas, a former British colony where free Africans developed sustainable communities that still exist today.
