The_Underground_Railroad _went _through _Pennsylvania_not_to_it.

The average US citizen believes that slavery in the United States existed primarily in the southern states. If this were true, how would one reconcile the existence of the underground railroad that traversed through Pennsylvania and New York. The routes traversed through these and other northern States and terminated within the borders of Canada. It is true that slave ownership was in decline in Pennsylvania at the commencement of the war, but it is also true that the legislative and judicial wranglings of that time exhibited behavior much like we see today in the legal activities of said institutions regarding abortion of the Pre-born in our time. The Laws were restrictive and complicated. The legislative efforts of the Mason Dixon Line border states, in their eventual efforts to live up to the words penned in the Declaration of Independence, were challenged and overshadowed by the Federal Government in its endeavor to enforce the Federal Fugitive Slave Act. The law was enforced in Pennsylvania, and exhibited strict penalties to anyone that participated in railroad activities and or aided fugitive slaves. Most Pennsylvanians turned a blind eye to the institution of slavery and reported violations to the federal law so as not to be accused of being complicit in a crime.
