Yet those willing to brave the risks did have one main ally: the Underground Railroad, a vast, loosely organized network of constantly-changing routes that guided Black people to freedom.

The most critical advantage that slightly conical wheels (in trains) have is that they can rotate at slightly different speeds, while cylindrical ones can’t (at least not as smoothly as conical ones). You see, when a conical wheel turns, it slides to the larger part of the cone on the outside wheel and the smaller part on the inside wheel.

The upshot is that that the two wheels still turn. Freight car wheels, best characterized by their heavy wear and hard spots, make up the majority of wheel sets turned on over-floor machines, most of them being re-profiled.

As it was illegal in most slave states to teach slaves to read or write, songs were used to communicate messages and directions about when, where.

Books that emphasize quilt use.
